The Delaware County Political Reporter

For a couple of years now, the Delaware County Political Reporter has been going after Republican officeholders and wannabes. The Reporter has been all over any comment, action, or decision that had even a slight odor.

As an example: Not too long ago, the Reporter caught Hanks making some strange campaign contributions (see below). But, now ...

The Reporter is on the side of the two of the commissioners and ST eGe -- Delaware, LLC. This in spite of the very questionable vote taken by Tweedledee and Tweedledum.

How did the Reporter gain such an affinity for Tweedledee (Hanks) over such a short time? Could the Reporter have some connection to the stink in Delaware? I wonder.

From the Delaware County Political Reporter:

Todd Hanks, in support of his “buddy” Jordan, funded Jordan’s plan against longtime members of Central Committee by using $6,000.00 he pirated out of his auditor campaign fund that he converted to his “Todd Hanks for Central Committee” fund. No campaign reporting is required for central committee races – Hanks found a new way to steal! We acknowledge that Hanks won his Central Committee race; however, he never had a challenger. Hanks won’t be on the ballot again until 2010, but has received Party funds in the past and continually has fund raisers for himself while endorsed candidates are trying to beat Democrats (and who need the limited money available from contributors today). Hanks is the leading contender to claim Jordan’s office – if he wins. (see the tax trouble situation in "Brenner.")

So, let me get this straight--they (the principals behind the DCPR) beat on the local politicos until they begin doing things that please them, ie. approve certain contracts.

So, taking this to a logical outcome, they beat on Todd Hanks until he would approve their contract, then be nice to him and stop airing his dirty laundry. Likewise--this is why they're going after Ken O'Brien (because he voted "No" on the contract...the CDPR post on E.Coli last week was a dead giveaway to the connection).

So, they're still going after Gavel Boy Jordan--that is, until he would intervene on lobby the Ohio EPA on their behalf to change the regs regarding the prohibition of adding liquid waste to solid waste (which is required for the bioreactor to work). Then they'll be nice to him. Nice.

This is all conjecture, of course. But it makes sense, and seems to be playing out as such.

Hanks and Thompson need to go. This lifelong Republican will be voting and campaigning for Democrats this fall, and forward, until their stench is gone.

Putting crap in place of crap doesn't do any good.

Voting and supporting a democrat is no better than supporting a RINO.

Why don't you support the candidate that best meets your criteria, moral standards, and ethical background, regardless of their party affiliation? Green / Libertarian / Reform / etc... there are many parties to choose from outside of the Republicrats.

I like the fact that a person can disagree with a political official on one issue and not another. Thanks goodness this is the case or I could never vote. That doesn't mean I always agree with the way people disagree. Its the cost of freedom I guess.
