Since there isn’t a lot going on in the criminal justice, local government world other than former Interim SPD Chief Rick Dobrow removing himself from the Chief of Police selection process (I wish a few more would take the high road), I’m going to throw in this story.
Whether a Liberal or Conservative the quickest way to ruin political aspirations or any hope of a political career is not to follow the first rule of politics, “Never, ever associate yourself with individuals who are documented frauds and liars, as eventually they will be exposed and it will only hurt you.”
If a documented fraud and liar tries to attach him or herself to your bandwagon the first step is to as quickly as possible try and remove yourself from any and all association, and especially never allow them to act as surrogates in any way, no matter how many emails they send you on a daily basis all of which are public records.
The Spokesman Review continues to allow Sled to push his extreme agenda in their comments section, as well as harass and belittle anyone who disagrees with him. There is so much evidence of that that posting the screenshots would take at least a week. One of Sled’s buddies Mike McGarr a late night copy editor and thread moderator over and over again demonstrates his favoritism towards Sled. McGarr’s own numerous comments while moderating the SR threads, including comments on the abortion issue, he usually deletes prior to ending his shift. Some however he doesn’t.
Here is one recent example of many where McGarr backs his buddy “Our Man Sled” to “Falstaff1” who had Andy picked for what Andy really is years ago.
You might note Andy’s statement “Nope. Not even a flag.” which is in reference to Andy’s practice of flagging a comment he doesn’t like several times using his various personas so that the comment goes into “Moderation” so the moderators can delete it.
The SR moderators allow “Our Man Sled” to get away with almost anything compared to some of the Conservative commenters as Sled over and over licks their boots and strokes them in his own comments.
Here is a recent example with Sleds old nemesis David Bray. You might notice Sled also tries to out a commenter he believes is “Justice”.
Any would be politician after considerable contact and stroking by Andy would think, the guy is a pain in the ass… but it is a vote. Well an easy check shows that isn’t necessarily true.
Yes, Andy “Facts are stubborn things.”, and that is exactly what you get right here, facts, evidence, and documentation…as you well know, all of which as hard as you try you are unable to dispute.
“Our Man Sled” continues his blowing up on the SR Comments Section with comment after comment defending his favorite causes and candidates including Pakootas. Most recently “Our Man Sled” has taken up the cause of defending City Council President Ben Stuckart from considerable criticism on a number of issues from the Conservative Commenters. As far as I’m concerned there is nothing wrong with that political discourse back and forth, it gets really nutsy sometimes, but that is the way it generally is. Sled of course will always make ad hominem attacks on commenters who have an opposing view, but that is his standard practice, especially when someone points out how wrong or dishonest his comment is.
This does however create a serious problem for would be politicians as well as others who have been fooled, they sure as hell want the people defending them or supporting their own agenda to be honest and creditable, something Andy has time and again been proven not to be. It creates a serious dilemma for them, because they are politicians or have a strong ideology they have to figure out how to smoothly distance themselves from people like Andy as they know that if they don’t do it smoothly Andy will turn on them like a caged rat, and start spreading his typical made up negative stories.
The moral of this story is, be real careful of who you hitch your wagon to, or who hitches their wagon to yours.
I REPORT YOU DECIDE!!!!
