Nope...it's Pam Frasor. Peloquin deep-sixed Vargas awhile ago. Says that Vargas wants the States Attorney to check into his personal financial dealings. Peloquin & Frasor do not want that.

The mayor doesn't get to pick his successor in the event of an premature exit of his term. The successor is the mayor pro tem. If he was to leave office early, Vargas would be Mayor.

Listen up bonehead, I usually have people pay me for what I'm giving you free. Peloquin and Frasor knew several months back that Vargas was engineering a "Place Coup" behind their backs because he knew they were not going to run for re-election and their attitude lately to the town was something akin to.."let it fall, we will not be around anyway". They saw which way the wind was blowing and Peloquin, to his ever lasting misogynist thinking thought the GOP would help him dislodge Bobby Rush...fat chance. He didn't see that the GOP used him as a sacrificial lamb to the Obama forces. He is trying to maneuver Josh Tate as his proxy to get Mark Potaska and Doug Hoaglund along with other witless no-nothings to run on a ticket that he knows Tommy Brown or Alan Stevo or Vargas will challenge. He will then come in like a shining knight to once again lead Blue Island into the light. Don't believe it..ask Mark Potaska who is helping him and Hoaglund.

Ur not Rep. Rita. He doesn't know how to spell misogynist nor how to use it in a sentence.

Can you please explain who "he" is? If you're referring to Peloquin, can you please explain how or in what capacity he will return to lead Blue Island? I'm being serious, although I cant afford to pay you for your insight.

"He" is none other than the illustrious Donald Peloquin. He is the consummate political hack. He is angling to stay in the game somehow. He tried, through Ray Cantello, to have Domingo Vargas back off from running for mayor by throwing him bone...being city lawyer. But Vargas saw the underhanded move Peloquin was attempting & told the mayor where he could stick his bone.
Peloquin being Peloquin then considered other ways of undercutting Vargas. When Rita withdrew his support from Cantello after finding out that Josh Tate was flapping his gums all over BI about it, Peloquin thought he could engineer something for himself. He got Tate to side with him and get some Flunkies to be proxy for him while also weakening Vargas's support among Hispanics on the Eastside. In steps the perfect flunkies...Mark Potaska, Doug Hoaglund and assorted unknown Hispanics to run in Wards where Vargas has candidates running on his slate. Shall I go on?

I still don't know how this will turn into him returning as a shining knight or how he will be in some position to lead again. Is he convincing people to run for office that he can influence for his own benefit? Cause that hardly seems like a shining knight or glorious leadership. It seems like some of the things you speak of make sense, but why would Rita care if someone was "flapping his gums" about who he was going to support? Everyone knows it's Vargas, now. Why would he want to weaken Vargas' support? Does he want Brown or Stevo to win? Maybe these people, you suggest are running by influence of Peloquin, are concerned if Vargas' entire slate wins, Rita will control the mayor's office and more than half of the city council? Maybe they'd like to see that not happen, for Rita to control the entire city. Just a guess... not a Peloquineer, Cantelo lap dog, Rita crew flunkie, or any other supporter. Just an guess...
