Election Fraud by Santa Clara Superior Court Judge Carol Overton! Does this prove that a lack of ethics has over run our California Judicial System?
“AUSTIN, Texas – Former U.S. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay — once one of the most powerful and feared Republicans in Congress — was convicted Wednesday on charges he illegally funneled corporate money to Texas candidates in 2002.
Jurors deliberated for 19 hours before returning guilty verdicts against DeLay on charges of money laundering and conspiracy to commit money laundering. He faces up to life in prison on the money laundering charge.”
After much research I have proven that Santa Barbara Barbara Superior Court Judge Arthur Garcia has committed election fraud and should not be allowed to keep the Judicial bench seat he currently occupies. Tonight I spent 20 minutes to try an provide you that there are other Superior Court Judges who have also committed the same kind of election fraud. On July 12 2005 there where two new appointees to the Santa Clara Superior Court and they were Franklin E. Bondonno and Carol W. Overton. Mr Bondonno ran for reelection in June of 2006 and Carol Overton did not decide to run for re-election until June of 2008. Can you please tell me what law applied to Mr. Bondonno obligating him to seek election in June of 2006. An why wouldn’t that law apply to the other appointee Overton until June 2008?
I can do this in any county and intend on proving it! Fraud and corrupt actions in our County offices are a reality we must all come to accept.

Carol W. Overton did not seek reelection in the 2006 election and is not well thought of in Santa Clara County! However Franklin Bondonno did appear in the June 2006 election. Why do two persons appointed to the Santa Clara Superior Court bench at the same time not seek re-election the same year? Carol W. Overton did however seek reelection in the 2008 election below!

Lets look into San Fransisco County and how 2009 appointee Richard Ulmer ran for reelection to maintain his seat on the bench.
Did you all hear about the California 2009 Judicial appointee Richard Ulmer? Well he had to run for re-election to keep his seat this past June, or in other words he ran in the next general election.

Politics up ante in Ulmer, Nava judicial race
October 16, 2010|By Bob Egelko, Chronicle Staff Writer
Superior Court elections are political afterthoughts, bottom-of-the-ticket entries that normally attract little public attention. But supporters of a San Francisco judge who faces a challenger Nov. 2 say there is much more at stake here than usual.
Judge Richard Ulmer, appointed by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger in June 2009, is running against Michael Nava, a state Supreme Court staff attorney, for a six-year term on the local bench June 2010.
The following here will go back over legislation that applies to the election process of our California Superior Court as well as the actions of Judge Arthur Garcia.
Below is taken from my blog posting @ the address above.
A judicial seat is newly created If created in an election year, it will be on the ballot in two years; if created in a non-election year, it will be on the ballot the following year.
A newly created seat produces a vacancy which, under Art. VI, §16(c) “shall be filled by election to a full term at the next general election after the January 1 following the vacancy.” Fields v. Eu (1976) 18 Cal.3d 322.
A judge leaves office (dies, retires, resigns, is removed from office or is appointed to another post) in a non-election year. The election will be held the following year.
Under Art. VI, §16(c) of the state Constitution, “the vacancy shall be filled by election to a full term at the next general election after the January 1 following the vacancy, but the Governor shall appoint a person to fill a vacancy temporarily until the elected judge’s term begins.” The person who is to “temporarily” fill the vacancy will, of course, nearly always become the elected judge owing to the advantage of incumbency in running for election.
Judge Arthur Garcia was appointed to the bench on 08/27/03 So based on the criteria I have provided you I see that after. January 1 2004 being the an election year and the next available primary would have been March 2 2004. The primary’s switch to there current June date in 2006.Yet Garcia does not run for reelection until June of 06. People how can that be? That would mean his appointment covered the remainder of 03, all of 04, all of 05 and all of 06. An he would seek re election in 06 for his first six year term to start 01/01/07 an that is just what he did!
Not only is that election fraud but every Judge on our Superior Courts at the time in Santa Barbara endorse him!
