Good people – I’d like to tell you about someone I met yesterday at the Democrats HD65 strategy / committee elections meeting Saturday.
MBA, Deacon in his Methodist church, Korean-English translator for dispute resolution, the FBI, and Homeland Security. One of the mainstays behind development of the incredibly successful “H Mart” here in Carrollton (our fair city) Tx.
Endorsed by the Carrollton Fire Fighters Association, the Carrollton Police Officers Association, Ron Branson (former Mayor of Carrollton), Becky Miller (former Mayor of Carrollton), and many others, he ran for a seat on the Carrollton City Council last May.
Guess what happened?
He surged in early voting, and the Tea Party incumbent Anthony Wilder’s re-election was in danger.
Then, this was mailed out to Carrollton voters.
So – gay Korean mosques and temples for everyone!
It gets better, though – please click on the “continue reading” to continue reading.
The incumbent felt the need to decry this message in the strongest terms possible!
Well, strongish terms, anyway.
(note The Heritage Foundation in his “liked by this page” column on the right)
Also, he is saddened.
It gets better (or worse) – Mr. Young received a communication early in the year from someone who offered to manage and promote the campaign, for only $4,000.00 a month.
Such a deal!
Being (as he put it to me himself) rather naive , Mr. Young took him up on it.
After the election (which Mr. Young lost by less than 350 votes) he discovered that his friendly campaign manager and his assistant were best buds with the incumbent AND the rest of the good ole boys on the city council – and in fact, teabagger moles.
Live and learn.
If only there was some way to determine where the above letter came from…
Maybe if I just Googled the salutation…
Dear Carrollton Neighbor:
My name is (redacted) and I am a candidate in the current Carrollton City Council election. I have lived in Carrollton for over 36 years.
Nah – still a mystery.
