WHO IS PAYING FOR "Political Tourist" BILL McCLURE's "POSTCARDS FROM THE EDGE?" --- "Disclosure" shows lacunae, lousy louche developers' payback

HATE MAIL IN ST. AUGUSTINE's MAIL BOXES.

Who's paying for "Political Tourist" WILLIAM ANTHONY McCLURE's "Postcards from the Edge" -- a sniping, lying hate campaign against reform Mayor Nancy Shaver?  

You have a Right to Know.  Who's paying for some nine (9) BM deposits in your mailbox?

Devious, tree-killing, history destroying "developers" want to defeat Mayor Nancy Shaver.  BILL McCLURE has run a five-figure, forked-tongue, direct hate mail sales campaign.  Who's paying for it?    

There are known unknowns and unknown unknowns.  

We know there's foreign money buying interests in Florida real estate, using dodgy LLCs.  

BILL McCLURE (BM) is an alleged fraudfeasor under "ongoing" investigation by the Florida Attorney General's Statewide Prosecutor for Medicaid fraud and other crimes, with a likelihood of imminent arrest or prosecution, according to the June 7, 2018 letter from General Counsel)?

Who's funding the BM campaign?

Why this matters: 
"Money is the Mother's Milk of Politics" 
     -- Jesse Unruh
     Former Speaker, California Assembly 
     (From Dancing Bear -- An Inside Look at
    California Politicsby Gladwin Hill) 

Nonresident "Political Tourist" St. Augustine Mayoral candidate BILL McCLURE (BM) financial "disclosure" is apparently funding his vile Money Bomb campaign with his wife Kim's money. 

BM's "disclosure" raises eyebrows, with undisclosed in-kind contributions and a few stray contributions from a motley cast of characters.

Who are the major donors (other than the aforementioned KIM McCLURE, whose home sale provided the funds for McCLURE's high-on-the hog rental of a tourist home apartment and hate mailings infesting St. Augustine mailboxes for multiple months?

See below for full list of corporations, charlatans, deluded conservatives, some possibly contributing Other People's Money money, to defeat reform Mayor Nancy Shaver:


  1. No disclosure of his own in-kind campaign contributions of a Concerts by the Sea shuttle bus, the "Trojan Trolley," which he uses to cadge votes from a capiive audience, and which he stated in insurance paperwork was for "Political" purposes." 
  2. KANTI PATEL, influential hotelier who won 4-1 approval for dodgy projects like the San Marco Hotel, Mayor Nancy Shaver dissenting.  Notice that KANTI PATEL did not give money in his own name, but gave in the name of his hotels, acting like he has a winning hand in a game of St Augustine "Monopoly."
  3. REALTORS POLITICAL ACTION COMMITTEE ($1000).
  4. ST. JOHNS LAW GROUP  ($1000) developer mouthpiece law firm, which no longer gets its way (7-Eleven at May & San Marco REJECTED in 2015 after fair administrative-judicial hearing presided over by Mayor Nancy Shaver.  Notice that GEORGE MORRIS McCLURE's late understudy,  DOUGLAS NELSON BURNETT', did not contribute his own money, but gave in the name of the Firm.
  5. DAVID BARTON CORNEAL, who demolished Carpenter's House before time for appeal expired, and won 4-1 approval for dodgy dismemberment of the Dow Museum of Historic Homes and conversion into a hotel in HP-1 historic preservation zone, Mayor Nancy Shaver    At least CORNEAL gave in his own name, instead of a corporation. 
  6. ROBERT SMITH ($1000), the "Prince of Darkness" of St. Johns County Repubiican polecat poli-tricks, who recruited five (5) bogus write-in candidates in 2016, closing five (5) universal primaries.  Florida Governor RICHARD LYNN SCOTT appointed a special prosecutor to prosecute SMITH after SMITH's former boss, State's Attorney RALPH JOSEPH LARIZZA, recused himself from the criminal prosecution of SMITH for bad check charges ($3700 check to Screen Arts for NEWT GINGRICH signs in 2016).  How did  impecunious apparatchik ROBERT THORNTON SMITH obtain $1000?  No response.  Did haters share their wealth?  You tell me.  Republican hick hack BOB SMITH & Co. brag about stealing campaign; he had a collection of Democratic Congressional candidate Faye Armitage signs in 2008 and has allegedly asked Ms. Armitage, Merrill Roland and others to ransom their signs .
  7. JEREMIAH BLOCKER ($150), LARIZZA's candidate for County Commission, another fungible corporate lawyer for landowners.
  8. JAMES PENNINGTON ($250), former Chamber of Commerce President who testified at request of flipper's father in city annexation hearing in April 2005 after being offered a "bottle of liquor" to stay and testify after his dredging matter was done.  (Ms. Sue Neely's affidavit on the liquor-for-testimony bribe is in City files).


McCLURE is under "ongoing," active criminal investigation and is endorsed by the Board of Realtors.  

Mayor Nancy Shaver is endorsed by the Sierra Club and the good people of St. Augustine.
