FRANS RICHARDSON AND THE UNITED ST MAARTEN PEOPLE'S PARTY TAKE A CHUNK OF THE NATIONAL ALLIANCE VOTE
William Marlin, must be sitting at home with a drink in his hand, right now, wondering 'What if?" William Marlin has a reputation for treating his own party members very shabbily. Bienvenido Richardson, who defected to the UPP, spoke of being spoken to like a dog, by his leader Marlin, before deciding that being in the National Alliance was not worth the abuse. Rudy Engel, defected - whispers of Marlin's arrogance and refusal to listen to any advice. Frans Richardson, who used to be Marlin's #2 defected, and brought along Leona Marlin with him. Patrick Illidge defected, and then combusted when he was caught on camera accepting cash from a brothel owner. This lost, also cost the National Alliance. Jason Peterson and Terry Peterson also defected.
This year, members who chose to remain with the National Alliance, and run on Williams slate, complained bitterly behind the scenes of being forced to finance their own campaigns.
Very popular people, who could have brought the National Alliance vote, but were told that they had to take out a loan, of over 50 thousand, decided against it. One person who was supposed to be on the slate, but could not and would not take out a loan, said that he did not want to go into government as an elected official, owing the banks favors.
At postulation day, and at the Rally's many who once 'followed the white line,' showed up wearing blue or green.
William Marlin alienated his largest sponsors including MacSood and Francesco Corallo. This year Macsood apparently put his money on Rodolphe Samuel, and Corallo put his money on Silvio Matser, both Theo and William lost out on those two mega-donors.
National Alliance agents, online and onland, played a lousy game with the voters, and lost and alienated many voters and loyalists.
Agents, such as Kendall Dupersoy, who was supposed to be bringing in new online voters, spent his time being petty, and spiteful online, doing way more damage than good. Kendall Dupersoy's attacks on Tamara Leonard, who is in the middle of cancer treatment with radiation, also only served to make agents such as Kendall Dupersoy look petty and small.
Onland, many voters were turned off by the abrasive, and some might say downright nastiness of many National Alliance members, who thought that they would cruise to an easy victory, and angered many people left and right.
The National Alliance lost many votes, through stupidity and arrogance-
but then again, that's simply their M.O.

Police officer Juan 'Juni' Stasie has been arrested by the Lands Recherché following his suspension and allegations that he had molested a minor. Although statements have been made online claiming that Stasie impregnated a minor, this arrested has to do with his daughter, and the complaint was filed by his wife. The wife later tried to retract her charges, but her accusations were considered serious enough that the case had already been handed over to the Lands Recherché. More updates to follow.
