The Recall City Hall Campaign Update
Phil Jennerjahn wears his shades on a gloomy day.
The RecallCityHall campaign is now 9 days old. Led by 3 failed Republican mayoral candidates and a pothead, the recall campaign is refusing to reveal their signature count, their number of volunteers, or even who is in charge. The recall effort was started by Wisconsin transplant, former mayoral candidate, and "entertainer" (read: birthday party clown) Phil Jennerjahn and his girlfriend, marijuana activist Dege Coutee.
After a disastrous press conference held on the south lawn of City Hall on April 20th (no one showed up) and a weird attempt at a chest thumping announcement of the recall campaign during the LA City Council public comments segment by Walter Moore and Phil Jennerjahn, the campaign has gone into stealth mode. Very few updates at the RecallCityHall.org site, Walter Moore has all but vanished, Phil Jennerjahn has returned to posting self-promoting videos of himself at his site, and Dege Coutee is doing whatever Dege does. David Hernandez remains the sole voice actually trying to take the recall effort seriously.
So the question is;
How many signatures has the campaign gathered?
This is important because the campaign has to gather over 2000 valid signatures per day, every day, 7 days per week for 120 days to meet the 240,000+ needed to meet recall requirements. This means that as of today, Phil needs to have 18,000 + valid signatures.
If the campaign is not meeting these daily goals then they need to re-evaluate their strategy, their distribution of volunteers, their fund-raising needs, and they should share this information with the people who are donating their time, efforts, and money to the recall campaign. Instead... the campaign has only offered up silence.
Several disgruntled recall campaign volunteers have made it known that they have no idea how much money is being raised, how many signatures have been gathered, or had any strategy whatsoever shared with them except the standard "we can do it, you go get the signatures" pump.
Are the volunteers working to gather signatures being jerked around by an opportunist and candidate for congress who conceived this recall campaign in the hopes it would propel him all the way to Washington, D.C.?
For your consideration....
From Phil Jennerjahn's blog on January 28, 2010 announcing his idea for the recall campaign:
"Something happened to me today that I am eager to share with readers of The Jennerjahn Report, but I can't release the details just yet. I will soon, though.
It is an idea that is so big....so revolutionary, that I believe it is going to change American history and that it will put me into national prominence.
Tonight was a huge night in human history.
A huge step forward for personal freedom.
And you are going to be some of the first people to ever hear about it."
We'll keep you posted.
