OpenCDA Takes Issue w/Nominee

It hasn't taken long for Smiley Bill McCrory at OpenCDA.com to find something wrong with Mayor Steve Widmyer's administration. On Valentine's Day, McCrory dipped his pen into the usual poison (actually that's not a good analogy in this cyber era) and took the mayor to task for nominating Nancy White (notice the three names that Bill uses, as though Nancy was some sort of serious felon) to the city Arts Commission. Nancy? In the controversial 2009 election that was challenged by now County Clerk Jim Brannon, Nancy registered and voted illegally. That came out in the lengthy court action following Brannon's 5-vote loss to Mike Kennedy. She received 90 days of unsupervised probation and a withheld judgment. Not exactly Bonnie of Bonnie & Clyde fame. But Bill "He Who Is Without Sin" McCrory considers the taint on Nancy Ellen White to preclude her from public service on the city Arts Commission. Who knows? Maybe she'll favor Canadian artists to local ones. You can read Smiley Bill's rant here.

DFO: I wonder why McCrory didn't mention that the mayor graciously appointed McCrory's sidekick, Mary Souza, to the citizens board assigned to help pick a new police chief?

Question: Do you see any problems with Nancy White serving on the city Arts Commission?
