Mary Breaks Her Silence

Mary Souza, who with Bill McCrory, seems to be the official spokesman for Jim Brannon (who rarely speaks for himself) has broken her silence in a comment below today's OpenCDA post about the ha-huge election loss to Mike Kennedy & the city of Coeur d'Alene. She said she'd have been shocked had Team Brannon prevailed. Intones Mary: "The judge made his true feelings very clear when, during a legal hearing before the trial, he went off on a long, dramatic rant about how the Election Challenge was threatening voters’ rights to privacy. His remarks were highly prejudicial. (and very inaccurate)." Then, she begins the inevitable dot connecting that OpenCDA cranks are famous for. Hosack is "highly connected to the community." He's in the Tubbs Hill Association with Scott Reed. He's -- omigosh -- "known as a Democrat." Blah, blah, blah. You can read the rest of this nonsense on comment No. 13 here.

Question: Should Mary be haranguing Judge Hosack with her character assassination while McCrory still has to face him next week on the contempt charge?
