So what do you think of Ron Wilsons negative ads against Caviness?

Ron Wilson has proven over and over again that he has no class. Everyone knows his ability or lack there of and for that reason he will not get elected. Can someone please elaborate on his arrest. I spoke with a Rush County Deputy that confirmed he was taken into custody by Wayne County but he did not specify why.

He was arrested for contempt of court. Photo will be coming soon to a newspaper near you. If he gets arrested for contempt of court as an attorney. Who is to say that he will not do it if he gets in as procescutor

He defied a judge who ordered him to present his client.

He is now defying a court order from a judge who ordered the City to rehire officer Lane and pay him back pay, costing the City thousands in more legal fees and exposing us to many more thousands for failing to follow the order.

Of course that was because the City illegally fired Lane based, in part, on Wilsons illegally obtaining Lanes cell phone records.

All Wilson is doing is running because he knows the Dems will be out in the City next year and he needs something to pay for his retirement.

Wilson is a sleaze. He's the kind of lawyer they write the jokes about. Can't say I'm all that thrilled about Phil Caviness, but he's been doing a competent job as Deputy and I'd rather have the continuity.

I don't like either, and will not vote. The ad was fair, however, as Caviness is sleazily circumventing residency laws. Dishonest is dishonest.

Jimmy,

quit trying to pretend you are not one of Wilsons lap dogs. Ya got busted spreading false info, now your are slinking off into the bushes.

If Caviness was truly doing something illegal or even morally wrong, this would have come out earlier. This sleezy attack brought to you from the same losers who brought you Ronnie "I do not want to be police chief" Cameron, Mike "I cant wait to serve/get out of town" Grocox and Billy "I was not elected, but am co mayor" Goins.

I am not voting. There is nothing worth voting for.
It doesn't even matter, Caviness wins this in a landslide. He's still dishonest. Wilson ain't no better.

"If Caviness was truly doing something illegal Or even morally wrong, this would have come out earlier", Unfortunately that isn't true. Caviness deception about his residency was brought out by the PAC group late in the race. Someone would have to file papers to get anyone to investigate the matter. How long do you people think he is going to be away from his Fayette "ranch"? Someone has to feed all of those expensive animals. If someone is going to buy a goat or burrow, someone will need to be there.
Everyone knows what Jim Huston's beef is.

So it took until the week before the election for Wilson to determine there has been a crime? Either he is not very good, or he deliberately tried to ambush Caviness. Either way he should not be Prosecutor.

So Jimmy, we understand, you are not voting, good for you. Quit telling us about it and don't ever plan to complain about the results. If you do not vote, you do not get to complain.

The sad issue with topix is it allows people to be uncivil to one another. Of course I won't be voting for Caviness, but I certainly won't degrade him by calling him a name.
The sad issue with voting is those who go to the polls and vote for a party instead of a person.
My understanding of the article in the paper was Wilson didn't put it in the paper.....othe people did.

I seriously doubt a group of people did this just out of the blue. I am sure it had to be done with Wilsons approval. If not, he easily could have put a letter to the editor distancing himself from the ad.

The beeping I hear may not be from the new trash truck, fire truck or crack sealer, it sounds like it is Wilson trying to put the spilt milk back in the bottle.

I voted early this AM and several voters were there. I talked to a gentleman (I believe to be a Democrat..not sure)and he said Caviness asked for a democrat ballet in the Fayette primaries in 2008. My question is why is that an issue. Does anyone know or am going to have to ask a die hard politican.

"Everyone knows what Jim Huston's beef is."

You flatter me, my country friend, in assuming that "everyone" knows me, or knows the circumstances surrounding my beef with Wilson. However, you are correct in the underlying assumption that no one knows sleaze better than someone who has been subjected to it.

Jim - "sleaze" like circumventing residency requirements??? Or other sleaze..? Cause, to me, sleaze is sleaze. To you, it only seems to work one way. One party.

That proves that Justa dont care really is justa dont know. Saying that you are one party shows he is either new here or has a very short memory. Does he forget Jims battle with the Bridges administration over dont maul main street?

Wow, that was quick! Thanks, Long Time, for pointing that out; for the most part, I'm issue-oriented unless I have personal knowledge of a particular candidate, something I admit is hard to avoid in a community this small. Justa, if you actually read my post at #5 you of course saw that my support of Caviness is tepid at best, and the reason for it. I don't have any personal experience with him, as I do with Wilson.

That would have really helped them out.

Good to see the start of the fall of the Democrats. Today Ron, next year the rest of the them. I am guessing that none of the Democrat Council will run for that office. I think they have all had enough of being Billy Rays pawns.
