OCG Chairman Robert Arruda said his group believes that Dufault signed the name of Edward O'Brien on two campaign filings by the group Citizens for Representative Government to disguise his involvement, and thus the involvement of organized labor groups Dufault represented at the time, in an effort to defeat a referendum seeking a constitutional convention.

OCG Chairman Robert Arruda said his group believes that Dufault signed the name of Edward O'Brien on two campaign filings by the group Citizens for Representative Government to disguise his involvement, and thus the involvement of organized labor groups Dufault represented at the time, in an effort to defeat a referendum seeking a constitutional convention.
...
OCG took copies of the 2004 notice of organization for Citizens for Representative Government signed by O'Brien (questioned documents) as well as a campaign finance report along with a 1996 campaign finance report for the same organization signed by Dufault (known documents) and presented them to "an independent, out-of-state, forensic document examiner" - Roxi Phipps of Round Rock, Texas.
...
The complaint asks the State police to "conduct an investigation into this matter to determine whether Guy Dufault did sign and have notarized the name of "Edward O'Brien" on the documents.
...
In a telephone interview, Dufault called he complaint, "absolutely ludicrous.
...
"Ed O'Brien is my best friend in life," Dufault explained, and they have worked together on campaigns.
...
The documents signed by O'Brien were notarized by Elizabeth Grady of Pawtucket, who Dufault described as "a classmate of ours."
...
A storm of controversy broke over Dufault this week when a whispered conversation conducted with Republican political operative Michael Levesque during a soundcheck for Dufault's Sunday TV chat show, "The Real Deal" on UPN 28, ended up going out over the air.
...
In the conversation, Dufault said among other things that he could "bring down" Gov. Donald Carcieri, a foe of the casino proposal for which Dufault had been a lobbyist, by releasing names of "past goumadas" or mistresses.
...
Dufault said his statement about the mistresses was based on "unsolicited, anonymous and uncorroborated" information he received.
His apology to the governor and his family for the "inadvertent airing" of the conversation was rejected by Carcieri, who insists that Dufault retract the statements.
...
Subsequently, Dufault has lost several lucrative lobbying clients, including the Narragansett Indian/Harrah's casino effort, Beacon Mutual Insurance and the Working RI union coalition. He is also pulling The Real Deal TV program that was sponsored by many of those same groups off the air.

Political fallout continues for Dufault as complaint filed, TV show dropped
...
PROVIDENCE -- The world of Guy Dufault, the former state Democratic Party chairman who until days ago was one of the leading casino and organized-labor lobbyists at the State House, continued to unravel yesterday.
As new details began to emerge about the botched television tape -- aired Sunday -- in which Dufault crowed to a fellow casino lobbyist that he had the "stuff" to bring Republican Governor Carcieri down, there were these other developments:
A citizens' group went to the state police with allegations that Dufault forged a signature on 2004 election documents filed by yet another group known as Citizens for Representative Government that led the fight against a proposed Constitutional Convention last year.
Julio Marengi, president and general manager of Viacom television stations in New England served Dufault with notice that UPN 28 had canceled Dufault's now-infamous Sunday morning TV-show: The Real Deal.
...
After being on the receiving end of another of Dufault's televised barbs, the Democrats' own likely candidate for governor next year -- Lt. Gov. Charles J. Fogarty -- returned a $1,000 campaign contribution to Dufault.
Not happy with what Dufault had to say about his campaign, Fogarty said he also thought it "appropriate" to return Dufault's money "to make very clear that there is no support from me in any way shape or form of what happened with respect to the governor."
...
The focus so far has been on the exchange that took place between Dufault and Levesque during what they evidently thought was an off-camera, pre-show soundcheck.
...
After slamming Democrat Fogarty as a lifeless candidate, Dufault said: "The only thing we can do is bring the other guy down.
...
But Carcieri chief-of-staff Kenneth K. McKay produced his own videotape of the show that went out on the airwaves Sunday and it clearly shows that what aired was raw tape, with several more unscripted exchanges between Dufault and Levesque at breaks where ads for Dufault's various clients usually run.
...
Dufault says: "Thanks, Mikey.
...
I appreciate your (inaudible) this out for me." Moving on to the monologue he calls -- "Guy's Gone Wild" -- Dufault inexplicably says to the cameraman: "I'm ready . . . I'm going to do the same one I did last night."
After a botched start, he begins again: "You know what makes me wild?
...
In responses to questions left on his own voicemail, Dufault yesterday left this message for a reporter: "As to the taping, I was told by CRI that there was a cue mark for the show and there was a show on that tape that was completely edited and, if nothing else, it should have been checked by others."
In response to a query about whom he held responsible, he said: "I am reviewing all my legal options right now. Other than that I have no other comment."
But he labeled the complaint that Operation Clean Government lodged with the police: "absolutely ludicrous."
...
Her conclusion: Dufault signed and notarized the name of Edward O'Brien, the purported treasurer of the group fighting the proposed Constitutional Convention.
...
In response, Dufault said O'Brien "is my best friend in life . . . He lives in Florida . . . [but]he stays with me when he comes up and he worked with me on that project."
...
Dooley Webster yesterday said Dufault's contract with Viacom requires four-weeks' notice by whichever side seeks to cancel, but the point may be moot in light of Dufault's stated intent to suspend the show "indefinitely."
