Dale Washam,

You cost us more than a million dollars with your antics, and you want to keep your job for another term for more of the same (TNT, 5-19)? Clean out your desk early; you’re fired.

Your boss, the taxpayers

    Besides piss off a few government workers, what has this man done wrong?

    The liberals hate him. The TNT hates him.

    He has to be good.

    Does this mean that you speak on behalf of all the voters?

  3. sumyungboi says:

    Dear Parr,

    You’re a shallow and arrogant person to purport to speak on my behalf. You’re a tool, being played by public sector unions and the TNT, the latter having engaged in Kanly with Washam from virtually the day he was elected.

    A taxpayer

    Well Gerry, it looks as tho you’ll have a chance to fire him soon… thru the ballot.

    You guys already failed thru the end run in the courts.

    Has Washam lied about his resume???

  5. GeronimoV says:

    If this fool has the money to put up for a pathetic run at a re-election campaign, he obviously has the money to pay off the debts to the taxpayers and to the county and to the former employees by whom, he’s been successfully sued. His assets need to be frozen and his salary garnisheed before he ships his money offshore, like the rest of the Republican scum.

  6. Uh, GeronimoV, I doubt it is possible to make any more misstatements of fact as you did. And what have Republicans ever done to you, besides lower your taxes?

  7. Well based on the people that are supporting the clown….he will and should lose the election.
    If they like him he can’t be good.

    And to answer the question, ‘what did he do wrong’? he cost the tax payer, at last count, 1.5 million.
    All you ‘cut spending’ clowns pay attention, 1.5 million…..

  8. Chippert says:

    I welcome Mr. Washam’s candidacy! It will be fun to see him come in dead last.

  9. charliebucket says:

    I still can’t believe he ever won anything. It was only because of the complete debacle that was ‘ranked choice voting” that he won the election. And look how his win turned out. I don’t care what his political party is or isn’t, the man is not fit for public office. I knew this before the election and every time his name and statement appeared on/in numerous ballots/voter’s pamphlets over the years, I knew he was a bad egg. I can’t even remember why I thought that, but I knew I would never vote for the guy and it wasn’t because of any media source or anything, it was because of HIM. When I come into contact with toxic people, my radar goes into overdrive….. is the best way I can put it.

  10. Bandito says:

    Washam is the poster boy for RCV. We learned very quickly that RCV did not give the voters enough opportunity to properly vet long shot candidates.

  11. charliebucket says:

    bandito, IMHO, RCV was not even ‘legitimate’. it seemed like one of those ideas that a bunch of bureaucrats sat around and thought up over too many beers, trying to fix what ain’t broken and then sold it to the uninformed public like (the caricature of) used car salesmen sell lemons

    …..instead of sticking with what is the actual democratic process.

  12. GeronimoV says:

    Dale Washam is nothing if not a demonstration that people who continually run for office belong in jail rather than elected.

    Wright was so controversial with his preaching(S)… he was offered hush money…


    ‘Man, the media ate me alive,” Wright told me when we met in his office at Chicago’s Kwame Nkrumah Academy. “After the media went ballistic on me, I received an e-mail offering me money not to preach at all until the November presidential election.”

    “Who sent the e-mail?” I asked Wright.

    “It was from one of Barack’s closest friends.”

    “He offered you money?”

    “Not directly,” Wright said. “He sent the offer to one of the members of the church, who sent it to me.”

    “How much money did he offer you?”

    “One hundred and fifty thousand dollars,” Wright said.

    “Did Obama himself ever make an effort to see you?”

    “Yes,” Wright said. “Barack said he wanted to meet me in secret, in a secure place. And I said, ‘You’re used to coming to my home, you’ve been here countless times, so what’s wrong with coming to my home?’ So we met in the living room of the parsonage of Trinity United Church of Christ, at South Pleasant Avenue right off 95th Street, just Barack and me. I don’t know if he had a wire on him. His security was outside somewhere.

    “And one of the first things Barack said was, ‘I really wish you wouldn’t do any more public speaking until after the November election.’ He knew I had some speaking engagements lined up, and he said, ‘I wish you wouldn’t speak. It’s gonna hurt the campaign if you do that.’

    If that isn’t mixing government with the church I don’t know what is.

    I love the photo…

    Schucks… wrong thread. :(

  15. “Wright was so controversial with his preaching(S)… he was offered hush money…”

    Do any of you conservative ever think that telling out right lies so often effects your credibility?
