Its getting closer to that CROW SUPPER. I'm saving all the crows I kill and should have enough for a big supper for all the "Know it Alls" who predicted doom and disaster on here for so long. Would like your crow backed, boiled, fried or sauteed ? Don't be bashful, speek up and let me know !!
Apparently you are a little slow so let me bring you up to speed on what's been happening. Andy has been gone from DSS for almost a month now. He had to leave for the very reason all the "know it alls" said he would, ie. he was violating the Hatch Act. So he is no longer leeching off McDowell's taxpayers. I know you probably wanted him to go on sucking us but that is just not going to happen for you now, ok? Maybe you should look around for someone else to idolize.
Oh by the way, how this works is that the person who is wrong eats the crow. Please let us know how it tastes.

I still think some candidates are not clear of the Hatch Act on both sides of the floor.

In addition, from what I can tell just because of Andy may no longer work for DSS that does not clear up the fact he started the campaign in violation. There will be more to come from this I am certain.

The OSC is very clear that attempts to right the violation do NOT relieve the fact it occurred.

A public records request can get you all of the emails you want, even from DSS.

This is a lot to take in but does anyone know where political campaign emails are originating from for those who have announced running for PARTISAN offices and already in campaign mode?
Why is the Board of Elections not making this Hatch Act clear to those desiring to run or are they?
And suspension without pay and possibly termination are realities for those who have violated the act already? This could get very interesting to say the least.
It all makes a lot of sense in reading why the ACT is there in the first place to aide in FIGHTING CORRUPTION in politics, imagine that!

What rock did this slime crawl out from under. You people in McDowell need to stop dating your sisters. This idiot must be his own tripple cousin and maybe his own grandpa.

this is absolutely a big problem .This should be changed immediately .It appears only folks who are not qualified can run for elected office.think about it, where does experience count and what for? Again this is the stupid people who run our government,and make laws to screw it up.personally I would rather have the experienced people run for local office Sheriff etc. This is scary.

This same old tired bull s--t starts every election cycle. Looks like the same ignorant people never get tired of repeat,repeat,repeat.

No if you are experienced and have done your job well you should be capable of putting back the necessary money to resign and run an effective successful campaign to show your worth and true intention to be a candidate. it should not be a whim where you just keep working and go for it
jus sayin

hatch act violations definitely occur in mcdowell in probably 75% or more of the elections. not sure why the OSC allows this to continue on and on with no accountability

We count for our own accountability here in McDowell.Send them enough money and they go to more democratic based counties.Hope we can count someone in that can cry like Boehner.We need a good crier on our city council.

Same brain dead junk every election. Always looking for something wrong to bitch about. I'll be glad when the new Hardware Store opens. Maybe it it scatter the brain trust and slow the propaganda flow.
