Mary Backtracks On Ap-hollow-gy

Yesterday, Mary Souza of OpenCDA ap-hollow-gized for calling respected Councilman Ron Edinger “dumb.” Now, she’s hedging on that ap-hollow-gy by saying that someone of Edinger’s tenure should be more informed re: the issues surrounding failed challenger Jim Brannon’s lawsuit. Spouts Mary of Edinger: “Come on, it’s been more than a year! Now he sits in a public meeting and spouts all kinds of erroneous information, misdirecting the public and confusing the issue? That’s not acceptable to me.” Seems Wallypog’s comment (No. 6) that states Edinger lacks bladder control, hinting that the councilman needs Depends, is acceptable, because it’s still posted on the site. You can read the rest of Mary’s latest rant (Comment No. 10) here. Hucks commenter Steve Badraun has it right when he sez of Edinger: “I have found him to be fair, honest, and above the clamor of petty political jealousy. He truly has, in his heart, the concerns of the common citizen of his city.”
