I am sorry Republicans are congenital incorrigible bastards.

The fucking assholes got swept out of power in the municipal races in my town. Normally Mayor makes appointments that are concurrent with his/her term. Thr appointment a mayor makes are town administrators, legal counsels, CFO etc ..


So in the lame duck period .. The outgoing mayor is giving new contracts and the council is changing laws to prevent new Mayor from making appointments... Full details arent yet known.. But they supposedly are putting in booby traps that will cause us pay out contracts if we fire them. Also they are amending deals with developers for the development of a new ( & contentious ) municipal complex that we campaigned against.


I am livid.

Get Romney Mcdaniel to talk to what is going on here. But sadly the media is more interested in the appearance of neutrality so they have to try to go 50/50 on coverage (the ole false equivalence)
