After reading yet a SECOND article from Gainesville Times reporter Ashley Fielding about who spent what on the campaign trail to the vacant house seat, we at The Truth are taking up a collection to pay the $50 entry fee to Columbia University for an opportunity to win the Pulitzer Prize.
What a JOKE. I will just come out and say it: WHO GIVES A SHIT! It took me 2 minutes to read one article and a minute and a half to read the other. The total outcome of this led me to one conclusion, I want my 3.5 minutes back. Hey Lois Lane, that’s not reporting.
Let’s talk about news. Who is the best candidate to help make decisions concerning Georgians futures? Who has held office before? Who is qualified and who is not. Who is the clear favorite. Wait for it… who has dirty laundry?
Oh, and another thing, I could care less about the amount of money Lutz owed when he filed bankruptcy. Do you want t to report a story about that? OK, let’s start with “What was your credit rating before you filed bankruptcy, Mr. Lutz?” That would tell us if he was paying those bills. You know, stimulating the economy. How about you go ask Bobby Banks how he feels now about getting Lutz fired. Email me, I will send you copies of the emails that were sent to his employer. Wait, never mind, my bad, the Gainesville Times was copied on those emails, so you should already have them. Call up ole’ Bobby and ask him what he said to Lutz wife. See if he remembers telling her that he doesn’t give a crap about her or her children when asked whether he considered them when he went after his opponents JOB during his rebid for Hall County Commissioner.
County Organ… Truer words were never spoken.
Stop wasting our time with garbage. Did someone get a campaign contribution from a know criminal organization? No? Then why is this news?
Why didn’t you report on the Hall County Sheriff’s Office, under the expert leadership of Jeff Strickland, botching a rape case and letting one or two perverts go free with jam up police work? Miss that one? Or how about Jeff Strickland firing people like he was having a going out of business sale? Miss that one too? No? I will link you to Fox 5’s I-Team, they ain’t scared.
I feel like I am reading the Whoville High School Gazzette.
What about the FBI presence in and around the Hall Sheriff Department as of late? Investigate that. And no, it wasn’t the league of angry Grandpa’s either, that was another county. The only reason the Times reported on that is that someone high up got stuck in a traffic jam in front of the Federal Court building.
The fact of the matter is that The Gainesville Times has announced who was running for this seat and how much money they collected and spent. That’s it. That is all they have to say about the seat. Well, exept for this gem:
“With the number of candidates seeking the office, Tuesday’s election is likely to end in a runoff. If necessary, it will be held Dec. 6.”
Thank you. We were wondering if they would play Rock-Paper-Scissors to see who got the seat. Now we know.
Oh, and change the headline. I have some ideas for you, choose any one, it’s fine, I give you permission;
1: 3 candidates that we could have making decisions for us, forgot to file their campaign finace reports when they were due
2: 3 Missing reports, Todd Reed and Paul Wayne Godfrey don’t know what they are doing – Banks needed time to cook the books
3: Hall County has 50/50 chance to elect an idiot, half forget to comply with campaign laws
4: Best joke of 2011 – How many candidates does it take to file a campaign finance report on time
5: 3 Candidates Miss filing deadline – Yardley spend 85 cents on an ice cream from campaign funds
6: Candidates don’t explain actions for not filing, so here is the names of Jim Walters and Philip Wilheit and any other name we can DROP to make you read the story
7: Oliver forgets to tell Bobby to file – Other 2 neglect to read the “How to be in Politics 101” handbook
I could go on for days. I know I am not alone on this.
I have an idea. How about you look at the campaign finance reports and tell us what the cost was for Mr. “Decisive Leadership” Sykes to replace his signs all over town to ADD the election he is participating in. Don’t tell me you missed that? Seems after our last report, someone got the hint that he wasn’t being very decisive. I’ll bet the “STATE HOUSE” sticker on the signs is a peel away. Under that is a sticker for judge or city council or maybe Sheriff or perhaps dog catcher or hell, who knows. If he was going to change the sign, he needed to take away the “decisive leadership” part.
but alas, I digress.
Please report real news. If you can’t find anything, shoot me an email, I’ll throw you a bone.
