Inside Bill Sizemore's Brain

Plenty of celebrities have their own fan sites on the Web, but damn few have their own ANTI-fan sites. And now Bill Sizemore has joined that distinguished company.

The new site,, was put up by the Defend Oregon Coalition, a group originally formed to oppose the so-called "Taxpayer Bill of Rights" (TABOR) initiative, an anti-government-spending measure.

"Unless you're a cave dweller (not that there's anything wrong with that), you've probably heard of Bill Sizemore, the enormous git who makes a living from pushing ballot initiatives that invariably fail, but cost his opponents millions in 'pushback dollars' in the process," writes "Torrid Joe" on Loaded Orygun. "And, oh yeah, he's got a shady criminal record too - he's currently back in court fighting contempt charges, based on the fact that he (or any of his cash cow organizations that hide his money and support his business) has yet to pay a dime in retribution for previous convictions.

"Speaking of the money trail, the court proceedings have revealed some details about just how much Sizemore has gotten from his campaigns, mostly from Señor Love Daddy of the Desert, Loren Parks. The exceedingly wrinkled Parks is said to have pushed hundreds of thousands of dollars Sizemore's way ... BEYOND what he was putting into the campaign coffers of Sizemore's initiatives."

With the help of Parks's generosity, and despite his legal troubles, Sizemore has succeeded in placing five measures - 58, 59, 60, 63 and 64 - on the November ballot.

"Bill Sizemore has used every trick in the book to get his measures on the ballot," the NoMoreSizemore site says. "He makes his money by qualifying them, and he has no regard for the impact of his measures on Oregonians."

The site contains information about Sizemore's political activities, legal problems and fundraising sources. The Eye suggests taking a look at it - it's pretty funny stuff, especially the opening animation.

    I’m really sorry to break the bad news to them during this season of peace and goodwill, but after this week the right-wingers in Bend and vicinity won’t have The Wandering Eye to kick around anymore. The decision to stop writing this blog was my own, and it was prompted by several factors. More »

    For the past week or so, “Zeo” of the NW Republican blog has had his jock strap in a knot over the prospect of Congress repealing the military’s “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” rule. To hear Zeo tell it, if DADT is repealed and gays are allowed to serve openly in the US military it will mean the end not only of our armed forces but of America, its economic system and civilization in general.
