IT AIN’T WHITE BOY DAY
Jesse Kelly is licking his wounds after last night’s concession call to CD8 victor, Ron Barber.
Kelly admitted defeat around 10pm, when poll numbers indicated that Barber couldn’t even see Kelly in his rearview mirror anymore.
After thanking his supporters, Kelly went home.
Because that’s the way it goes.
But with Kelly likely to also run for the CD2 seat, don’t forget: Every once in a while, it goes the other way, too.
A Rio Nuevo board member — one of only 2 originals remaining, btw — made an impassioned, 45-minutes speech at last night’s meeting, calling the recent string of Rio board oustings a conspiracy to cover up massive corruption and misspending of Tucsonans’ TIF money.
The speech leveled accusation at the Senate President, Speaker of the House, city attorney, local businessmen, at least one board member, and the Daily Star.
And it included a bit about how The City is too incompetent to find millions of missing taxpayer dollars.
Oh, if only I weren’t already married…
PROFILES IN CURBAGE
Gov. Brewer has officially updated her directive on what is considered, under SB 1070, “reasonable cause” for detaining or arresting potential illegals. (The controversial legislation is currently being looked at by the Supreme Court, with a ruling at hand.)
Smelling foreign was not addressed.
Locally, Vocally’s “Check Out My Briefs” is intended as humorous commentary. If it didn’t make you laugh, try reading it drunk.
