Mary Upset By City Demand

Mary Souza is at it again, lambasting the city for demanding that failed challenger Jim Brannon pay the city’s legal bill of $36,000 to defend itself from Brannon’s long-running lawsuit. Mary fumes that the city hired Mike Haman to handle the defense while City Attorney Mike Gridley watched and texted from the back of the courtroom. Later, in her newsletter to her minions (the names and e-mails of whom she inadvertently published in her mass e-mailing), she castigates Her Sandiness & the City Council for not asking one question when votes were canvassed in the 2009 municipal elections. No where does Mary mention that her concerns were addressed by Judge Charles Hosack in his ruling against Brannon earlier this fall. She simply blathers on. Per usual. Quoth Mary: “They did not do their job for the voters of Coeur d’Alene; they did not make sure the city election was accurate and trustworthy.  This was their failure of duty.” You can read the entire screed here.
