You’ve probably seen at least one of those movies where an evil guard or warden of a prison or prison camp is finally exposed, but they claim that they were always on the side of the prisoners—circumstances forced them to pretend otherwise. They claim they have always been the good guy in disguise—your secret guardian angel. They should be thanked, not punished.
That lie sounds just like last year’s “Annual Report” from our fired ex-law director, Wade.
This isn’t an Annual Report at all. It’s a blatant “I’ve always been on your side/I’ve always agreed with you,” blame the other guy piece of fiction. She still thinks you’re so stupid that you’ll believe anything she says.
She starts out by complaining about the current administration’s “lack of respect for the truth,” and points out that even “Council Members take an Oath to uphold the laws.” THIS IS FROM THE PREVIOUS 4TH WARD MEMBER OF COUNCIL THAT REPEATEDLY VIOLATED HER OATH OF OFFICE TO SUPPORT THE CHARTER. How hypocritical can you get!
Then she makes the incredible statement that, “I have never witnessed so many lies … as what I have witnessed the last seven (7) months of our new government.” She obviously doesn’t expect us to remember all the times she has defended “the new government” during those same seven months. How many times did she blame those who tried to point out those lies as trouble-makers and liars, themselves? How hypocritical can you get!
She moans that she “did not envision that our ‘new’ City government would have such a problem with ethics.” Really? There were ethics problems before the new administration took control. Start with violating her oath of office. Also, remember the card table on the sidewalks downtown selling raffle tickets? That wasn’t legal. She’s hoping you don’t remember her embarrassing and illegal tirade trying to fire the Auditor. How hypocritical can you get!
She “cautions” current “Council Members to spent the time necessary to get all of the facts and use multiple sources” now, but remember during those seven months how everything in the Council meetings was an emergency, and they should just follow her “shepherding” to make those quick decisions? How hypocritical can you get!
Sure, “our ‘new’ government is … certainly a runaway train” now, but everything was glorious and rosy for her back then. How hypocritical can you get!
This isn’t even a complete listing. I’m sure you could include many more examples of your own. After all of these lies and hypocrisy, can you trust anything she says about anything? If she tells me the time of day, I’d have to check my watch. I don’t think that she even cares what the truth is any more.
So what’s behind this ridiculous “Annual Report”? I think she’s still looking for that local government job. I think she’s a skunk appearing to change its stripes because she’s too much of a “hot potato” politically right now. Just like that loathsome movie character, she wants you to believe that she’s always agreed with you—that she’s always been on your side.
We fired her for very good, substantial reasons. With all this continued hypocrisy, she’s proved she hasn’t changed. We don’t want her back as law director, councilman or dog catcher. No thank you.
