Port Angeles City Attorney struggles with definition of profanity
Yes, the headline says it all, but it's what we've been saying for days, isn't it? Hey, Bill, maybe you should let Cherie Kidd write, define and defend her own rules. Lord knows she can dress herself - why not give her a little more leash and see if you can choke her off entirely?
Bill Bloor is brought to you by...
Meanwhile, let's look at what some other people have to say. First up, Doug Honig with the American Civil Liberties Union:
"The restrictions interfere with the free speech right of council members."
"The staff did nothing to halt, stop or slow down this proposed ordinance. I intend to take this outside Port Angeles for legal review...I'm not going to rely solely on Port Angeles City staff to tell that's a legal document."
Says Lee Whetham:
"We're getting readings that are off the chart!"
Comment on the PDN website:
"This story is being picked up by national media because of its absurdity. Port Angeles is being ridiculed as a backwater for stories like this that threaten to further isolate it..."
Another comment from the PDN:
"So Kidd openly lied about Whetham's behavior...Yet she wants to punish opposing council for potty language - which she knows when SHE hears it. Port Angeles burns while Kidd fiddles."
Did not respond to requests for comment.
Maybe someone can explain it all to Cherie Kidd
(speak s-l-o-w-l-y) during public comments...
