Oh wow, oh wow!
This morning, I didn't see this article about Mike Doherty taking his (formerly) fellow Commissioners to task, because I couldn't get the PDN's website to open up. Then I was at work all day, and went to a meeting straight from work, then cut my finger making dinner...But now I've read it, and damn, isn't it about time? Thank you, Mike Doherty.
Honesty? Check. Appropriate righteous outrage? Check. Calling creeps on their sleazy behavior? Check. To their faces? You bet! Self-serving and self-righteous outrage from the creeps being called out? Oh, yes, and then some.
"I don't think I did anything wrong," said Chapman Wednesday. "I'm out looking for work. I'm not nefarious. If you have problems with me, tell the whole world. Call for my public resignation."
Well, I won't call for your public resignation, Mike, because I know you'll never do that. Besides, I'd rather see you recalled and/or indicted, personally. In any case, all those idiotic Democrats and white-washed environmentalists who got you re-elected this last time, are they finally waking up to the reality of Mike Chapman? Mike Doherty sure has - and he's doing the right thing by broadcasting it, and calling for an investigation into whether or not any laws were violated. Again, thank you, Mike Doherty.
And gee, does anyone else notice a pattern here? Both Mike Doherty and Selinda Barkhuis were and are in positions to know all the inside dirt in the County Courthouse. And they both point to the same trio of charlatans as the source of the problem: Jim Jones, Mike Chapman, and Dim King Jim. I kind of doubt that both Mike D. and Selinda are having the same fantastic hallucinations. I kind of have to believe, as stated above, that they're positioned to know things, and what they know is making them both cry foul.
Such courage and critical thinking, not to mention placing the public good and their right to know front and center, are things to be commended. So, one last time, good job, both of you. Keep it up!
But does the ever-more unstable Mike Chapman demonstrate any such courage or critical thinking?
"I think every elected official does a great job," said Chapman.
Obviously some people don't share your perspective, Commissioner Chapman. And thank goodness for that.
Footnote: I apologize for the rushed and somewhat detail-deficient nature of the above posting. It was a little late in the game, and I was hurrying, and wrote with the assumption that most people reading this would also have read (or would then read) the PDN article about this fascinating situation.
