It just gets better

EDITOR:

This is really getting interesting. First we have Howard Penn with a NyQuil involved driving incident after “drinking wine with dinner,” which pushed his “blood alcohol close to the limit.” Actually it tested higher than the limit. The quotes are from Howard Penn’s own letter.

Then we have to deal with Mr. Penn’s business dealings leaving tax liens for more than $100,000 and a mechanics lien for $25,000. Howard must think that the county has plenty of money and they won’t notice Mr. Penn’s lack of real business expertise. Lastly Mr. Penn, are you on probation and where did you get the money to pay off your tax deficiencies right before you filed to run for Board of Supervisors?

Then we get to Scott McNeil and an assortment of business issues from bankruptcy to state and local tax liens and finally a property tax default. Besides that Mr. McNeil doesn’t seem to know where he lives. Is it District 4 or District 2? Scott, don’t have Howard drive you home.

Then we get to Mike Pettibone leading the pack on shear numbers of liens and judgments with Penn and McNeil close behind. Also, Mike has that bankruptcy thing. Say it ain’t so Mike.

Then we get to Chuck Holland’s observation that he saw Dylan Sullivan driving while talking on the phone. Dylan, get a headset.

Since we are going after everyone we should bring in Joe “Where’s the Gold” Hoffman, Esq. Let me see if I can make this short. Hoffman appears at his now imprisoned client, Mr. Chartraw’s, home to watch his client being evicted (June 17, 2010). Then (April 4, 2011) Hoffman writes a Letter of Attestation for that client’s benefit stating that the client has $6 million of gold dory bars (not to be confused with Dove Bars), which was used to attract investors to the newly evicted client’s gold mine investment. Now, you will never guess what happened. The investors lost about a half million dollars that allegedly passed through Hoffman’s trust account. And then what did Joe do? He ran for judge in 2012 and lost; but not to be denied he is running again. Would you give your money/vote to Joe Hoffman?

So, what is the big deal about all this? It is appropriate to let your backers and the news agencies know anything and everything that could be embarrassing to the candidate or the endorsers early on in the process. Obviously, none of these folks thought much about that. What do the endorsers think? What do you, the voters, think?
