I AM voting for him. This is a dirty campaign. All Fargo's people are doing is playing dirty. DIRT DIRT DIRT instead of addressing the needs of Sacramento.

Yes, halo. Sacramento desperately needs a child predator as Mayor.

I think making sure we don't have a pedophile for a mayor is addressing the needs of Sacramento.

And having a pedophile for a Mayor is a need for Sacramento. Keeping him out would be what Sacramento needs....

Many cities around the country have people with rotting skeletons in their closets. Don't be naive. Isn't Heather extremely ill (physically), as well as a horrible mayor who has done nothing new for this city? Along with a WEAK city council, of course. Why not give someone else a shot? And you "pedophile", which is inaccurate. He has never been charged with a crime in that case, and never admitted or was proven to have been a pedophile. Paying a settlement (which could easily have been just extortion, we don't know) does NOT admit guilt, you idiot. I'm not saying he is or is not a pedophile, but we don't know, neither do you......do you?

first off if some man was suppose to have molested my daughter no amount of money could keep me quiet. It sounds to me the mother was looking for a way to get cashed out. I see most of you are blaming Kevin. The girl may have been 16 but that doesn't mean she is all innocent. Her and the mom are nothing but gold diggers I don't believe he did anything to the girl that she didn't want to be done!

Exactly, the media is so biased, especially the local media, it is often difficult to figure out the entire truth. These news stations are looking for the "wow" factor in their stories, and most have an agenda. I am with "Insert name here" I don't know one way or the other if Johnson is a pedophile, but I find it odd, that these allegations are all of a sudden front and forward during a campaign, rather than when the incidents supposedly happened. Or was I on vacation?

You are right, no amount of money could pay me off, if a similar incident happened with my daughter. I would be out for a conviction at all costs.

I completely agree with you. If this were true, son't you think that as a mother you would make sure that he was prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, isn't that what any parent should do? Not just accept a cash offer to shut my mouth!Looks as though we still have money hungry people out there, trying to make anything up to get a dollar. Things haven't changed much!

Also that Heather Fargo I've never seen a more miserable looking women in my life. And the greed that comes with her is amazing. She's old and needs to step down and let a new generation take care of Sacramento.
I agree

He probably did not know the girls age. 16 year olds look much older then their age and they defiantly dress provocatively. What was her mom thinking, letting her daughter hangout with NBA players if she was just a minor? I think mom and daughter are as much at fault here as Johnson.
