Well, It looks like the Democrats of DE haven't gotten a bit smarter over the years, I actually am shocked that this man, the one who narrowly avoided be convicted of fraud, is once more the felon of choice for DE Democrats. I guess you really can't fix stupid.

Ballybunion, Tom Gordon isn't a 'felon' no matter how many slimy tactics the Bush junior Justice Department tried in making it look like that--how many more lies from Republicans are the people going to just take? Paul Clark was the crook and so was his slimy wife!:-D http://www.delawareonline.com/videonetwork/19... - 741k - Tom Gordon's record as County Executive speaks for itself. Tomís priorities are our countyís citizens and employees, not special interests. Keeping our county government transparent and citizen-friendly begins with fixing the currently broken Land Use process. Under Tomís leadership county citizens will have better control over the development process in their communities, through changing the UDC back from the developer-friendly mess it has become. We are facing a very difficult and uncertain economy, and county reserves are close to exhaustion. When Tom previously came to office as County Executive, the county faced a projected $100 million shortfall. Under Tomís leadership that shortfall was eliminated, the county earned a AAA bond rating, and the county amassed a record surplus. Tom did this without raising taxes or sacrificing the quality of county services. New Castle County again needs Tom Gordonís fiscal leadership.
