Columbus needs an honorable Democrat to take his place. Or even a dishonorable one will be better than Mike. True dat.

Has Coleman and Comeblowus, Ohio, gotten better or worse?
ASK the QUESTION.
NO, we've been there to visit. It's become a war zone sewer. We thank the Mayor.

How about a town that fires a good coach and keeps a dirty mayor?
I think Coleman is too shameless to have low self esteem. Well, he does need a bra. Saw the pic. ack!
the coach was not fired he quit before they fired him,they need to get rid of that dirty mayor now.

She drank like a fish on spring break in Miami Beach! yikes! And DROVE that way. Criminal.
About alerting the public, great idea. We know the Dispatch won't do it. Maybe a website or blog? I'm in.
PS - Did Coleman pay the CITY back for all the income Frankie made at her "city job" ... on the books?(Absent from work, paycheck anyway.)
that might be something to bring up at one meeting that they are always holding , i sure wich i was related to the mayor so i could get a job like that.any one else agree, lets get it started on how FRANKI was paid to drink for her money i know two hands full of people who would like that job.

The word on the street has it that Mikey buys her crack for her. She's progressed from booze to crack. yah, he's keeping her quiet.

The way he put family and friends on the city payroll - people who never showed up to work, but got paid, like his drunk wife.
That's criminal --->and he walks free.
Major abuse of power putting all those no-shows on the City's pay roll. Makes me sick every time I see his face thinking of that.

There's no way he's "shocked." Coleman carries the fleas of all the dregs on society. He is their host.

If THAT doesn't summarize it, nothing does. Good job, Maver.

I bet he's shocked. Usually his friends commit the crime and his offices cover it up.
