Twenty-six year old Mitch Paine works for the Nebraska Natural Resources Department.
He ran, and lost, for Lincoln City Council against Cyndi Lamm.
Democrat Lincoln Mayor Chris Beutler now wants to appoint him to the Air Quality Board (whatever that is).
Cyndi Lamm, you will note, spells her name with a “Y then I”, and her campaign website was “www.CyndiForTheCity.com“.
However, in the Democrat Dity Tricks playbook, “CindyForTheCity.com” — using “I then Y” — took advantage of those who don’t know how she spells her name.
But it didn’t stop there.
They then redirected users to the crasss, distasteful, racist and patently offensive video on YouTube entitled “Bum Fights“, showing just what it is entitled, with giggling videographers behind it.
And what makes this especially offensive, is that Cyndi Lamm was herself once homeless. A point which apparently Paine finds hillarious.
Here is the kicker: You can dissguise who purchsed a webpage by using a “Domains By Proxy” which essentially hides who paid for a site.
But not always.
Here is the smoking gun:
In the realm of Democrats calling for resignations and responsibility, this is the top of the mountain.
It was used during the campaign and is still up.
It is patently offensive and wrong.
Paine holds a gig with a state office.
Paine is gunning for an appointment for the Democrat Mayor.
So lets hear it Democrats!
Let’s hear a quick, certain denouncement of this in no uncertain terms, from EVERY Democrat office holder and leader in the state!
And what should happen to Paine? Tell us!
(The Nebraska GOP has demanded that at the very least Beutler remove Paine from consideration for the appointment.)
If you Democrats DON’T denounce everything associated with this, we will consider it an endorsement.
**UPDATE at 2pm**
“Our concern about D.C.-style politics being used in Lincoln has not changed. We have not allowed partisan bickering and the undue influence of special interest groups to keep our community from moving forward, and we should never adopt that way of doing the City’s business.
“What has changed is the situation concerning my nomination of Mitch Paine to the Air Pollution Advisory Board. My office found out for the first time today that a member of Mitch’s campaign staff used a negative and highly offensive campaign tactic against Cyndi Lamm during the City Council campaign. This is another aspect of D.C.-style politics that I abhor, and I have reached out to Cyndi to express my disappointment with respect to this campaign tactic.
“I have also withdrawn my support for Mitch’s appointment, and I will ask the Council to remove his name from consideration for this advisory board.”
For Lincoln City Council?
So who was it?
And what did Mitch know and when did he know it?
