But first, we noted yesterday that U.S. Senator Ben Nelson has given money to Suttle’s campaign via his PAC. The OWH picked up on our post, and also noted that Nelson not only donated to Suttle, but did so on $5.00-payout-to-vote day, but also gave another five grand the day after.
So clearly, the Suttle campaign’s actions, being investigated by the state patrol, had no bearing on Senator Nelson’s money clip.
However, Rep. Lee Terry did note the voter-fraudness of the take-advantage-of-the-homeless-shelter-residents-by-(allegedly)-paying-them-a-measly-five-spot-to-vote-for-Suttle scandal.
And to follow up, the guy who took over for Noelle and tells Gary what’s what, David Dover says that the voters shouldn’t vote based on Homeless-Gate.
Yeah, tell that to Jerry Ford.
And we got a kick out of Suttle’s official Mayoral spokesperson Aida Amoura’s defense of using the Mayor’s office to respond to campaign questions.
Maybe you didn’t realize this, but right after Suttle’s Five-Dollar-Fraud erupted, Amoura issued a press release from the Mayor’s office telling the press how the campaign wasn’t going to pay the homeless to vote for the Mayor anymore.
See, that’s a no-no. There’s the Mayor’s office and there’s the campaign, and never the two shall meet. Every re-election campaign goes through that, and it is not exactly rocket-science.
Well, except apparently for Mayor Suttle.
Because Amoura defended speaking for the campaign by saying, “the Mayor’s Office was deluged with requests for comment by the news media and the public after the homeless controversy erupted.”
Oh, well, if they were DELUGED that changes everything!
“I strenuously object?” Is that how it’s done? Hm? “Objection, your Honor.” “Overruled” “No, no. I STRENUOUSLY object.” “Oh. You strenuously object. Then I’ll take some time and reconsider.”
See, you simply call up the campaign, and let them respond to the media’s campaign questions. It ain’t that tough.
Well between the NADC and the State Patrol, everyone will keep plenty busy after Tuesday.
And for you Lincolnites, much potential excitement.
The NNN’s own Kyle Michaelis is considering running for City Council. Seems no one has officially declared for District 4, so the 29 year old Michaelis is considering it.
Wonder if he has expressed any views on issues before?
