Apparently, Nightengale borrowed $6k from someone right before running for Governor, and filing for Bankruptcy. I have been very suspicious of her and her motives for running. Basically, disaffected Conservatives should think long and hard before giving any serious thought to her.
A Commenter Davi Rodrigues left the following:
I have worked with her at Save Our State.
First off, Save Our State did not go bankrupt. Instead, it was left to expire. That’s a long story. Basically though, Joe Turner incorporated it, ran it for awhile, and then turned it over to Nightingale as managing director. Her management style was iron hand, and it soon became apparent that it was all about Chelene instead of our agenda. I was there since the beginning and became one of the administrators, but I’m a stickler for legalities, and when things weren’t adding up about the corporate status and the donations, I started asking questions and was soon ostracized by Chelene. I then did my research and discovered that both Joe and Chelene had let the corp lapse, in addition to never completing the 501C3 requirements. Basically, we weren’t a charity,,,ever. So I filed and reincorporated it, and have been slowly trying to get to the bottom of the old corp management through the AG’s office and the Sec of State. Nightingale knew. She knew.
They then had several years of our written effort removed from the internet so it would not reflect badly on her run for office. There has been a file opened at the AG’s office, and now it’s headed to the FTB, but it’s going.
Yes, Chelene filed the chapter 13 BK, and then it was converted to a 7, She had borrowed 6K from one of our members just a few weeks prior to the BK, and after having been left out of the loop pn the Bankruptcy and the later finding out that Chelene was running for goivernor instead of paying him back, our member sued and obtained a judgement. She appealed this week, but it looks like she lost again. I have zero respect for Nightingale. Even after all her previous activism which seemed pretty good to me at the time, I realize now that it was intended for personal gain at the expense of everyone else’s contribution. As far as I’m concerned, she should tarred, feathered, and run out of the conservative movement as a poser.
And Nightengale had a judgement against her for that $6K as well:
