Anyone can do this as these violations effect all voters. We do not want neo-liberals and neo-cons simply dismantling our democracy!
Below you see the making of my Federal Court complaint. We are ready to file this complaint but are waiting on the Maryland Circuit Court complaint to invalidate the Democratic Primary for election violations so as to know what to include in this Federal case. These violations are clear, they are real, and they are systemic. The courts should be ruling in my favor on most of these claims.
I'd like people to think how this race for governor is so important as to move Trans Pacific Trade Pact and the neo-liberal dismantling of our democracy.....and that is what is happening. Also, you will see my letter to Maryland ACLU asking them to represent me in this complaint in Maryland and they responded they did not have the resources to do this. Free and Fair Elections is the #1 civil right and liberty we are guaranteed so having the ACLU protecting the laws of going to the polls while not making sure candidates for whom people want to vote are allowed to participate and to allow widespread election violations to openly occur shows we are needing leadership in our justice non-profits. We already have public justice being dismantled----we need these non-profits working for what their mission statements say they work. This issue should be front and center for Maryland NAACP but they actually participated in violating election laws and excluded. Common Cause Maryland is all about shoring up these kinds of fundamental Constitutional rights and yet----no connection to this major election problem.
I will be filing in Federal Court soon. I should hear from the Circuit Court in the next week as to trial date or dismissal leaving me to appeal and start this case.

Cindy Walsh for Governor of Maryland is filing in United States District Court for Maryland in Baltimore because plaintiff is a resident of Baltimore and the election irregularities identified in the Federal Court case include businesses located and operating in Maryland. The plaintiff claims University of Maryland system is tasked with oversight and accountability of all universities under its umbrella and its Chancellor, the Deans, and Presidents of affiliated universities failed to abide by election law. Violations include FCC and IRS laws protecting elections.
U.S. Code › Title 28 › Part IV › Chapter 85 › § 1343 28 U.S. Code § 1343 - Civil rights and elective franchise (a)(1)(2)(3)(4)
Statement of Facts and Claims
Cindy Walsh was approved by the Maryland Election Commission as a legally qualified candidate for the Democratic Primary for Governor of Maryland and was added to the list of candidates for this office on February 25, 2014. The plaintiff immediately reached out to all election venues, organizations, and media making them aware of this candidate and the desire to participate in all election events during the course of the primary. The plaintiff responded to invitations to forums across Maryland that this candidate would be participating within the time frame given on the request. Candidate questionnaires were answered and returned to organizations participating in this primary election. Cindy Walsh responded when an organization chose not to include and encouraged at several points in the primary to include this candidate as it was required by IRS and FCC election law making the defendants aware of there requirements in election law when they choose to participate in elections. All of the defendants below violated either FCC, IRS election law or both as they censured the campaign of Cindy Walsh for election events and media coverage throughout the primary election going so far in some cases to create their own list of Democratic candidates for Governor always minus the plaintiff, actually changing the Maryland Election list of candidates to their own view. The violations vary from failing to invite the plaintiff, to inviting and then refusing participation when the event occurred, to posting election information online or in print, radio, or television that gave a false representation of who was in this primary election. Media may not have to give equal opportunity to all candidates but it does have to give opportunity and it absolutely does have to post a government document like the Maryland Election list of candidates accurately. To change a government document is itself illegal and it is defamation of Cindy Walsh as a candidate, harming her professional aspirations with false statements. A non-profit organization cannot partner with a media outlet that takes the stance of 'selecting' which candidates will appear in forums whether that media outlet is private or public. The 501c3 laws regarding participating in elections are clear-----take no opposition or do no damage to a candidate in a campaign. The FCC laws are clear that whereas media may not be required equal opportunity it must allow access to all candidates. The FCC laws also make clear that media may not discriminate in elections as regards platform in forums and debates. All issues in an election must be allowed to be represented in order that voters are able to go to the polls educated on the issues and candidates so as to make an intelligent vote. This is guaranteed to every citizen as regards their civil rights to elections and voting. The defendants in this lawsuit violated one or many of these requirements and thus the laws themselves. Since the number of defendants is long, the plaintiff will attach a separate Facts and Claims and Demand for Relief for each defendant. The plaintiff will prove these violations were systemic, that the people charged with the duties in these organizations and businesses were notified and chose to willfully, deliberately, and with malice ignore Cindy Walsh's calls for relief from these violations.
Please see individual claims and demands for relief for each defendant.
Legal basis of complaint:
Cindy Walsh for Governor of Maryland is filing suit in Federal Court because of violations to Federal Election laws carried in FCC and IRS organization requirements when participating in elections.
The following IRS regulated organizations violated:
1.501(c)(3)–1; Section 1.501(c)(3)-1(c)(3)(i); Section 1.501(c)(3)-1(c)(3)(iii); 178 Rev. Rul. 66-256, 1966-2 C.B. 210; Rev. Rul. 74-574, 1974-2 C.B. 160; Rev. Rul. 78-248, 1978-1 C.B. 154; Rev. Rul. 80-282, 1980-2 C.B.; Rev. Rul. 86-95, 1986-2 C.B. 73
The following FCC regulated organizations violated:
Section 312 [47 U.S.C. §312] (7) (f) (1) (2)
Section 315 [47 U.S.C. §315] (1) (2) (3) (4) Nothing in the foregoing sentence shall be construed as relieving broadcasters, in connection with the presentation of newscasts, news interviews, news documentaries, and on-the-spot coverage of news events, from the obligation imposed upon them under this Act to operate in the public interest and to afford reasonable opportunity for the discussion of conflicting views of issues of public importance.
Section 399 [47 U.S.C. §399]
Section 73.1940 [47 CFR §73.1940] (a) (1) (2) (3) (b) (1) (3) (b) (1) (f)
Section 73.1941 [47 CFR §73.1941] (1) (2) (3) (4) (b) (c) (d) (e) ) Nothing in the foregoing sentence shall be construed as relieving broadcasters, in connection with the presentation of newscasts, news interviews, news documentaries, and on-the-spot coverage of news events, from the obligation imposed upon them under this Act to operate in the public interest and to afford reasonable opportunity for the discussion of conflicting views of issues of public importance.
To save the time and space of including this list in every defendants' claim below you see the common communication by the plaintiff to media and some of the largest 501c3 venues. Cindy Walsh started with an introduction of my campaign in early March and this list shows the plaintiff tried to seek relief throughout the primary letting these organizations and businesses know the election laws were being broken and how they applied to this election. The responsibilities these FCC and IRS election law place on the candidate of asking for opportunity and identifying violations as they occurred were met. These communications show contact with media, 501c3s, and the Maryland Election and Attorney General tasked with upholding election law and providing Cindy Walsh with relief from these violations. They also show escalating frustration by the plaintiff as the primary election approached with no response from any of these organizations and businesses.

RESPONSE TO THE GAZETTE NEWSPAPER IN MONTGOMERY COUNTY Cindy Walsh for Governor of Maryland would love to answer your questions. I sent a copy of my campaign platform and personal information and now will answer questions:
CINDY WALSH FOR GOVERNOR OF MARYLAND TICKET:
2522 N Calvert St
Baltimore, Md 21218
From: Cindy Walsh – Governor of Maryland democratic primary race
To: Susan Goering - Executive Director of Maryland ACLU
RE: Election violations are systemic in the Baltimore area
Cindy Walsh 2522 N Calvert St. Baltimore, Maryland 21218 443-825-7031
Ms. Goering, As a primary candidate for Governor of Maryland living in Baltimore City I request the aid of the Maryland ACLU and Maryland Attorney General’s office in addressing what is a systemic violation of election law that results in a crony and corrupt political process affecting all elections in Maryland, but especially the elections tied to Baltimore, the largest voting district in the state. As a candidate I receive equal protection under law as regards elections in regions all over Maryland but in Baltimore I have not received one opportunity to advance my platform or to gain face and name recognition in this primary race for governor. This is deliberate and it is why voting in the Baltimore is now down to 20%------there are no candidates getting the benefit of election law for whom voters want to vote. Election are the fundamental principal of a democracy and the US Constitution is unique in the world in stating very strongly that US citizens are the legislators and their rights as citizens who determine law will not be denied. The US is unique as well in a Constitution that offers equal protections under law to all citizens. American election laws clearly state that all 501c3/4 organizations will provide equal access to forums and/or debates open to the community. This includes the political party machines, education institutions from K-college, churches, and private non-profits. These include as well all public media outlets from public radio and TV to government public access media. I attended a public forum recently given by a private non-profit in Howard County that met every criteria in election law that was run efficiently and openly. Every candidate in the election from local Howard County offices to governor race candidates were sent an email invitation and allowed to participate with equal time and freedom to share their platform to the public. I have dates for similar events all over the state of Maryland. In Baltimore, I am left out of every one. Baltimore has a system where 501c3/4 either openly violate the election laws requiring invitation to all candidates and open forum to discuss their platforms or there is systematic exclusion with policy meant to circumvent the letter of election law with an institution hosting a forum or debate ‘sponsored’ by a private group of individuals that then select the candidates who are invited to speak to the public. The election environment in Baltimore are the kinds of elections held in developing world nations having Constitutions not half as clear about protections of citizens’ rights and Rule of Law including law surrounding elections. When I speak to a state politician whose district includes Baltimore I am told that’s just the way we do it. Well, Rule of Law does not allow this. I will take one incident already past as a case for the MD ACLU and Maryland Attorney’s office for election violation with the knowledge that I am documenting many such violations to be pursued at the end of this primary session. Violations of election law taint election results and bring into question the candidate designated as having won an election. In the world of Rule of Law and Equal Protection, this election process would be NULL AND VOID. A government cannot allow candidates in major voting districts to be silenced and state that they have free and fair elections. I am going to start by identifying the Baltimore Education Coalition and its education forum in Baltimore that selectively invited 3 candidates for governor and failed to invite all candidates for governor. Not surprisingly, the candidates for governor chosen were politicians backing the education reform supported by the BEC. This is a clear violation of election law and since education policy in Baltimore is a major priority for parents in the city, the failure to allow politicians with education policy stances counter to what most residents of the city do not want represents a deliberate effort to corrupt free and fair elections and voter’s rights to know the candidates they will see on the primary ballot. When we see a constant reference to the top candidates in the media or as I am known in Baltimore public media-----‘the two other candidates’, you have failed to meet election law requirements that all candidates be given time on public media. Below we see two separate news journals and their approach to elections. My campaign received an opportunity for input in many news journals across the state as they sent out a general email to all candidates in primary races. In Baltimore, the Baltimore Sun which owns most of the news journals outside public media sent the email below and my campaign did not receive this solicitation…..again, the candidates chosen as the ‘top candidates’----which means global corporate and global market----were included. Now, election law does not require private media to meet election law, but media in America has always been pressured by government to provide a fair and balanced presentation of public events and especially elections. I have received no solicitation from Baltimore public media for my campaign platform or time to speak of my issues----a clear violation of election law. The Gazette, a Washington beltway news journal has a general solicitation policy to meet the spirit of election law: Read candidates' responses to questions about minimum wage, the economy, taxes, education, Maryland Health Exchange, marijuana and the environment here. Baltimore Sun’s North Baltimore Patch. As part of its 2014 election coverage, The Gazette is asking all candidates for some basic information about themselves and to fill out a questionnaire. We will post this information on an election page on our website, www.gazette.net. Responses will not be edited, except for possible libel. We need the following information about you and the answers to the questionnaire below by 5 p.m. on March 21. If you run into any problems as the deadline approaches, please let us know. ********************************************************************
The last avenue of election coverage comes with government public access media. Montgomery County has democratic elections and a strong system allowing all candidates access to platforms sharing their views. Maryland League of Women Voters holds its forum in Montgomery County and there is no such forum by the Baltimore League of Women Voters. Its webpage links to this Montgomery County event. Now, as a candidate I am happy to have at least Montgomery County branch adhering to the election laws and one can think that cost of providing this election event may be stopping the Baltimore branch, but again, the one strong source of free and fair elections does not happen in Baltimore, the largest voting district in the state. Then again there is Montgomery County public access media that sends a general email to all candidates for office in primaries to come to their studio to record a platform stance to be available to the public, in Baltimore our government public access has nothing on the primaries: The League of Women Voters of Maryland and its affiliated local leagues hope you will participate in this process and use this opportunity to reach out to voters in your district. For many years, voters throughout the state have looked to the League of Women Voters for fair and accurate information about candidates and their positions, as a nonpartisan organization that does not endorse candidates. If you have already scheduled your appointment for Montgomery Community Media’s Candidate Spotlight, you may disregard this e-mail. The deadline to reserve your space for Montgomery Community Media’s Candidates’ Spotlight is this Friday, April 11 at 12pm. To make your appointment, please call 301-424-1730 ext 351 or 313. I have attached the information for your review. We look forward to seeing you at Montgomery Community Media soon! *************************
I have shared these election violations and deliberate policies made to circumvent free and fair elections for a few election cycles to all the players I have listed above. I have as well written formal complaints to the FEC and Maryland Election Board and Maryland Attorney General’s office for several years about this systemic problem in Baltimore elections. I am submitting this letter to each of these agencies tasked with the protection and enforcement of election law once again, this time as the person victimized by this failure to uphold Rule of Law surrounding elections. I listened to Jon Cardin at a primary event embrace the issue of free and fair elections in his run for Maryland Attorney General. Now, Jon is the head of Maryland Assembly elections committee….and it is no coincidence that his election district reaches into Baltimore. I asked Jon how systemic election violations in Baltimore and his district over decades holds up to having free and fair elections as a platform stance and by extension running for Maryland Attorney General……the office tasked with enforcing election law. Remember, the current Maryland Attorney General Doug Gansler is not only ignoring Baltimore election violations, he participates in Baltimore forums-------like the Baltimore Education Coalition------that he knows violates election law. As I inform the Federal Election Commission of all of these violations of election law by politicians tasked to upholding these laws we will see how the Federal government is protecting election law whether under a republican Bush or a neo-liberal Obama. Remember, Rule of Law and Equal Protection requires laws to be enforced. What the citizens of Maryland need to know is that not only are your rights to free and fair elections being violated by the political appointments to government positions tasked with creating and overseeing election law…and/or candidates allowed to run for office as Public Justice tasked with enforcing law openly breaking the law.…but the American system of government has all your elected officials taking an oath of office to serve in the public interest and protect the US Constitution. No matter the office being local, state, or Federal. So, when a Maryland Assembly politician tells me that Election Law is a Federal Law and not his business, I am shouting that the Federal Election Commission would not be derelict in its duties if all of Maryland’s elected officials were shouting about systemic election violations in Baltimore. It is their business and it is their job. I thank you for your time, Cindy Walsh Candidate, Governor of Maryland primary race
We are in the last two months of the primary elections for 2014 and Cindy Walsh for Governor of Maryland has been mentioned a few times----never by name and yet I am just 10% away from being tied with the 'front-runners' with several months of media saturation. Brown 25%, Gansler and Mizeur around 10% with over 54% undecided democratic voters. Imagine if Cindy Walsh had received a fraction of that media coverage-----there is the platform 54% of democrats seek! More would come.
Baltimore Sun and its many local news journals have never mentioned Cindy Walsh the candidate for Governor. WYPR has mentioned her a few times as 'one of two other candidates' but now only act if 3 candidates are in the democratic race. I searched Maryland Public Television----bastion of free and fair elections in Maryland and not a word. I am not on the list of Governor's candidates in Baltimore Sun or MPT. Morgan State and WEAA with Marc Steiner has not mentioned my campaign nor had me on.
Dan Rodricks had a show on the governor's race and all of the callers stated they did not want Brown or Ganser but someone 'like' Mizeur. That is of course----Cindy Walsh for Governor of Maryland.
No Baltimore news program taped and aired the Montgomery County forums that had the one candidate from Baltimore included in the forum. Having a candidate from Baltimore running in this governor's race is never mentioned. I am 10% away from being a 'front-runner' and 30% from winning the election and you will not hear it in Maryland media.
So, Cindy Walsh for Governor of Maryland has a Federal Election Commission complaint and will pursue this in court. The citizens of Maryland will rebuild free and fair elections in Maryland!
As Cindy Walsh for Governor of Maryland moves to the FEC for election violations----public media still call 10% of polling making candidates 'front-runners' deserving all media attention!

RE: Flagrant violations of Federal Election laws must stop
I am including a note to all of you so all can see how deeply flawed our election system is in Maryland. The citizens of Maryland have had enough and are demanding Rule of Law and respect of election law that allows all candidates in a race to be heard especially when 501c3/4 organizations are involved. Everyone understands the open invitation rule and most organizations in Maryland follow it, but for some reason, the very institutions that once held free and fair elections sacred and served as a political forum for all have chosen to be the source of election capture. I demand that the change happen now as my campaign want a voice in these last several weeks of this primary!
Dr. Loh --------President of University of Maryland College Park
This is Cindy Walsh for Governor of Maryland on the democratic ticket. The one you did not include in this forum. As a 501c3/4 organization you are required to extend an invitation to all candidates in a race and to fail to do so is deliberate intent to damage the campaign of others running. Everyone knows that with a polling of around 10% of democratic voters supporting Gansler and Mizeur we have no 'front-runners' and indeed if my platform was heard the 54% of undecided will have found their candidate----or already have.
The public university is the bedrock of political debate and discussion. If you as President deliberately seek to silence a candidate because of political views you do not support you are failing as head of a public university. My candidacy is real------I am qualified and more capable than any of the candidates you 'selected' to appear. You have a responsibility as an education leader to uphold election law and allow all voices to be heard at all times but especially at election primaries and general elections. I am pursuing the failure of 501c3/4 in Maryland to meet the election law requirement of doing no harm to election campaigns and these events are front and center.
I demand that Cindy Walsh for Governor of Maryland be one of the participants in these forums. I wish acknowledgement and will be attending Wednesday's forum!
Cindy Walsh for Governor of Maryland is filing election complaints with election commissions and heading to Federal District Court (2)
THIS DISCUSSION ON ELECTIONS IS RELEVANT TO ALL STATES IN THE US BECAUSE THIS IS HAPPENING IN YOUR NECK OF THE WOODS.
Who is your pol pledging allegiance to in a corporate state? Maryland is becoming a corporate state.
SEC. 9. Every person elected, or appointed, to any office of profit or trust, under this Constitution, or under the Laws, made pursuant thereto, shall, before he enters upon the duties of such office, take and subscribe the following oath, or affirmation: I, _______________, do swear, (or affirm, as the case may be,) that I will support the Constitution of the United States; and that I will be faithful and bear true allegiance to the State of Maryland, and support the Constitution and Laws thereof; and that I will, to the best of my skill and judgment, diligently and faithfully, without partiality or prejudice, execute the office of________________, according to the Constitution and Laws of this State, (and, if a Governor, Senator, Member of the House of Delegates, or Judge,) that I will not directly or indirectly, receive the profits or any part of the profits of any other office during the term of my acting as___________ (originally Article I, sec. 6, renumbered by Chapter 681, Acts of 1977, ratified Nov. 7, 1978).
I am pleased to be invited and participate in events all across Maryland because people do know election law and follow it. When the larger venues openly flaunt the law----it is a step to break down the process because of course if breaking the law is allowed----no one follows the law....which is the point. If public media and public universities are allowed to break law why should the smaller 501c3/4 follow law? If the Maryland Attorney General tasked with enforcing election law actively participates in a process he knows is breaking the law----
WE NO LONGER HAVE EQUAL PROTECTION AND RULE OF LAW.
The time is now to stop the election rigging in Maryland. Crony party politics and media collusion will end.
Hello WYPR and WBAL-TV, et al.
This is Cindy Walsh for Governor of Maryland on the democratic ticket reminding you once again that media are required to do no damage to any one candidate in an election race -----I listened this week and again heard all four republican candidates listed but only 3 democratic candidates.
Fraser Smith had a reporter on his commentary that actually did some investigative journalism. She reported that over 630,000 voters had changed their party affiliation to independent this past year and you know why? The citizens of Maryland are fed up with the election rigging and party cronyism in this state. There will be change.
I look forward to being on all of your media outlets over the coming general election.
