Deanna: ‘Corrupt d’Alene’ Over The Line

Deanna Goodlander: Since the Reagan Republicans in their infinite wisdom choose to call my City, and by inference myself, Mayor and other Council members and City Staff, corrupt, I thought that I would look up the meaning of the word. Corrupt - guilty of dishonest practice, as bribery…..lacking integrity, crooked, debased in charactor, depraved, wicked evil. How do you react to such name calling? The people I know and work with do not resemble those words in any way. We are simply trying to do our jobs the best way we know how. Others may disagree with our decisions, but does that give them the right to use such words against us? More below.

Question: In a later comment post Reagan Republicans board member Dan Gookin said he would insist that the RR's remove the stickers from its booth. Will one of you check today to see if they have?

In todays political world, it seems that anything goes, If you call people corrupt, somehow that will make others believe that we are, in fact, corrupt. There has been no proof of corruption, no investigations that prove corruption. Tell me please who really is lacking integrity, is wicked or evil? What kind of people will pay money to put those bumberstickers on their car? Just asking.
