As a select few of you are aware, my anti-Chapman blog got hit with a rather unusual anonymous comment yesterday. I’m not going to repeat it because I have no way of substantiating some of what was in it, but it was posted by someone who claimed to know Gene’s ex-wife, and it made some very specific accusations about Gene’s background which, if true, would not only destroy his political aspirations, but would render him a pariah forever.

Those comments were posted on other blogs as well. I deleted them from my blog (with explanation), simply because they cannot be substantiated and were highly inflammatory to the point that, if untrue, they could be actionable. At the same time, it was a hard decision because there was one item in there that someone probably wouldn’t know unless they actually knew Gene. That information is not available on the internet except in a lone audioblog from years ago, and even there it didn’t go into detail.

In my explanation regarding why I deleted the post, I suggested the anonymous poster put that information on Gene’s blog, if in fact the accusations were true and could be substantiated. I don’t know if they did that, but it’s possible.

Did Gene suddenly drop out of the presidential race due to these accusations? It’s an awfully big coincidence that he was just talking about how he was to participate in an LP conference call for presidential candidates today, and yesterday he dropped out of the race and deleted all of his blogs, with no warning whatsoever.

It’s possible those two things are related and, if so, I just feel bad that Gene didn’t listen to me back when he first started his campaign, even before I started my blog, when I warned him in no uncertain terms that anything he had ever done will come back to bite him in a presidential campaign. I don’t know if this is some of the stuff that he thought would never come to light, but I do find his sudden disapparance – in less than 24 hours after those comments were posted in multiple blogs – to be a very, very strange coincidence.

I also posted a final farewell to Gene …… the perfect campaign song for him, in video form.

Greetings,

I’ve carried the ball as far down field as I can. With 4 jobs and school starting in June, along with not having a truck to carry me to presidential debates, I see no way to continue the campaign.

I’ve withdrawn from the race and have my sights on the Class Action Materials and operating under the redar toward the Tribulation Period. I’ve deleted all the websites relating to the campaign.

If there were a following for our ideas, it would have already show itself in the form of a donation.

God Bless you,

Gene Chapman
genechapman@hotmail.com

So apparently he didn’t get even one donation.

Gene’s campaign website is indeed gone, and has been replaced by a filler page advertising “Plaintfield Role Slave” (whatever the heck that is). In fact, as he said, all the campaign pages are gone.

That includes a blog maintained solely by his 15-year-old “Intelligent Design Advisor”, which had absolutely nothing to do with Gene’s campaign. It was basically a religious blog. I didn’t agree with anything that kid said, and truthfully read it for laughs, but at the same time that kid put a LOT of work into that blog. It was a lot better blog than Gene’s would ever have been.

Gene shouldn’t have deleted the kid’s blog. That wasn’t right. Gene didn’t write that blog, he didn’t maintain that blog, and precious little on that blog had anything to do with Gene.

Yet to be seen is if he will try to make a comeback into the presidential race, or if he will instead bill himself forever as “Former US Presidential Candidate Gene Chapman”.

Thought I’d move this up here from the comment section. Spur of the moment type of thing.

While meandering around google just a few minutes ago, I found what appears to be a brand-new blog for the 2008 presidential election. It’s surprisingly well thought out, and seems to be trying to maintain a neutral viewpoint. There’s not even a hint of what party affiliation or political persuasion this blogger may have, which is what peaked my interest.

Here’s their blog description:

The purpose of this blog is to provide voters with a comprehensive list of candidates and their positions, and also to provide voters and candidates alike with a forum in which to share their views. Commentary is not only welcome, but highly encouraged.

Unlike some other presidential election blogs, this one is extremely comprehensive so far, with a listing of (and links for) about 75 presidential candidates of every imaginable description. They even listed the candidate for the “Vampires, Witches and Pagans Party”, LOL.

They’ve definitely put some work into it, and given it a lot of thought. The candidate and party links list alone is impressive compared to most blogs of that nature.

Apparently they’re looking for input to make sure they’ve included all the candidates and parties which should be listed, and are also looking for input so they can compile biographical info on all the candidates. They are also looking for additional links to add. So far their link categories seem to be candidates (separated by party), political parties, discussion resources, and general resources.

If anybody’s interested in checking it out or saying howdy, the blog address is www.08presidentialelection.blogspot.com

From
Classically Liberal

…sit down with the kids. Warn them. Tell that there will be people who pretend to be their friends. They hang out outsides the schools, at the malls, anywhere where kids hang out. They lurk around the internet. They will even call at home if they know the parents aren’t around. Not only will they pretend to be a friend but they will promise rewards, opportunity, even cash if the kids just do what they want. And they really, really don’t want the parents to know about this. Remember if you don’t tell you kids about these people they will get your children.

And if you think the comparison between recruiters and molesters is strained then watch the following CNN report. Over 80 recruiters, in 2005, were caught for sexual misconduct with the young people they are trying to recruit. Over 100 victims have come forward. These people are given, without the knowledge of parents, full access to kids anytime they want at any school in the US under Bush’s “No Child Left Behind” legislation. They are given private information on all children including unlisted phone numbers and you are not able to block their calls, they can bypass blocks on any phone. Since 1996 almost 800 military recruiters have faced these charges.
