Shawnee Shenanigans Part 2

Continuing the saga from Monday's special council meeting that appointed the mayor's uncle (by marriage), Alan Willoughby, to the open position in Ward II with NO public input allowed.  If you have not read part 1, please scroll down and read that first.

First item of business:  Award for the Best Comedy Act by a Councilmember Trying to be Serious.  That award goes to..............................Jeff Vaught.  Vaught said he couldn't vote for Mike Kemmling (clearly the choice of 1/2 the folks who voted in the election, but remember, no public input allowed) because Kemmling interrupted Dawn Kuhn three times and interrupted him (Vaught) once.  Huh?  That's a reason not to support someone?  And, he said it with a straight face.  Now, is Vaught sure of that?  Maybe he had his players reversed?  Maybe it was Kuhn who interrupted Mike Kemmling?  And what about Vaught?  Did he really get interrupted?  Or did he do the interrupting?  And hasn't he (Vaught) interrupted others?  Oh, by the way Jeff, remember, you still haven't answered the question as to what is your education level.  Like you like to say:  answer the question, answer the question, answer the question (and wasn't that interrupting somebody else?)

Now that we have that out of the way, let's get down to Mickey Sandifer.  Mickey chose the time just before the votes were being taken (and the applicants could not respond back) to, in a very hostile manner, attack Mike Kemmling and accuse him of running the filthiest campaign ever in Shawnee.  Mickey, I won't be politically correct, I just won't be vulgar:  you sir are a liar.  Since when does sending out literature, stating verified actions that an opponent has taken (like votes in council backed by minutes) become filthy?  You stated that Mike Kemmling wanted to fire staff.  Where in any of his literature did he say that?  Show us Mickey.  Back up what you say.  You can't, and that sir, makes you a liar.

Now, you want to talk about filthy campaigning.  What about the piece that was mailed and arrived the day before the election, that was sent out basically supporting you and the other incumbents?  That was filth, and lies, with claims that the Koch Bros. were behind the challenger's candidacies, that they had spent $100,000.  This piece of trash was mailed using a phoney PO Box, and without stating who sent it, which is a violation of law.  And neither you Mickey, nor any of the incumbents that it was designed to back, said anything to disavow this piece of trash.  And in case you forgot what this piece of filth looked like, it's posted below.  So again Mickey, put up or shut up.  Back up your lies, as if you could.  (Click on either of the two images to see them larger).
