Re: [ga] Dan Steinberg - Watchdog?
I just had a fun walk through our data park. Mr. Steinberg is not registered to
vote in our registry. Just how is he a member of the GA? Or is he and if so
Let us see; I have not seen him in a wg lately, I just checked a couple of
constituency data bases and did not find him. He is a lawyer but for who? I
could not check the IP constituency?
Other than apathy and the personally laudatory comments from but a few and Ken
Stubbs nomination of this man and the fact that four of us were banned during
this period and the GA had it's lowest participation rate going on does anyone
find this odd?
