Election Denial Is In Vogue

Friday, September 23, 2022

To the two members of the Election Commission who speak on the record about the city council runoff election, I have a few questions.

Regarding the smell test, isn’t hearsay inadmissible?

Regarding interference, what about a state senator endorsing county mayor winner a part of this equation? Or past US presidents coming to town to vocalize their preferences. If you are looking for bait here, plenty of worms to can is my take.

On behalf of your “speaking up”, my take as a taxpaying registered voter is your mouth is best utilized in a court of law and left out of the chance to insert your thoughts to any reporter. Your duty is kinda like a doctor, first do no harm.

My accusation to you is you are contributing to the delinquency of minors, or adults who behave like children. This so called nation of laws needs more adherence from the likes of you no matter the scent you detect. Smell is one thing, when an election loser with dull claws reaches for the law to help a lost case, your best contribution is speaking in court. Your legitimacy as a board depends on it as well as what your attorneys may wish you hadn’t stated prior. The last thing a lawyer needs to do is hire a lawyer. Or further a cause that really has no essence. I know election denial is in vogue.

I am so glad that Candy Johnson, (ex-superintendent's wife) and the Urban League, want to call for interventions and cultural competency education across the district.
