John Barrett, "Today's Worst Person in the World."

"The rest is from the little people."

Did the Mayor really say that..... I guess that about says it all when it comes to his arrogance and worldview. Still power hungry and "special" after all these years. Little people unite!! Vote this bum out, please!!!!!

In the article they said Barrett had spent all this money on campigns,why? Other than Paul Babeu,who else has even been a challenge for him? How could he be spending thousands of dollars on campaigns where he didn't have an oppnent? Something smells 'fishy' here. He didn't his 'Campaign' money mixed up with his 'Keno' money did he?
