Former Democrat Gubernatorial candidate Mark Lakers plead guilty to a misdemeanor charge of “abuse of public records”.
He paid $500.
Which was MUUUUUCCCCCHHHH less than he claimed many “donors” contributed to his campaign.
Thing is, we still wonder if Lakers is the one at fault here. He certainly has the final word on how the filings are made. But it’s not as if he was writing up the forms. That would be left to his campaign manager (or treasurer).
In any case, many many of the claimed donors stated that they never even spoke with Lakers, let alone pledged to contribute. That will do him in.
We still think he could have survived to run his campaign, but that train has left the station (engineered by new Lt. Gov candidate Anne Boyle).
We hardly knew ye, Mark.
Word has it that state Senator Brad Ashford isn’t crazy that his Mayoral desires went public.
And add a few more names to those who wouldn’t mind occupying the third floor of the City-County Building if Jim Suttle is recalled:
Mike Friend and Mary Ann Borgeson.
OK, let’s just admit that it would be a nutty free-for-all.
Ah Labor Day, Labor Day, what an unusual day.
You hire some dude, then send him away.
To celebrate work, by playing all day.

Have a grand weekend!
And GO HUSKERS!!!
