  •  I think I went to elementary school with his kids. (0+ / 0-)

    My family supported him when he ran for school board back in the '70s. I haven't always agreed with him politically, and have at times been turned off by his personal style, but I was glad to see him elected mayor. To say I'm disappointed in what's happened would be an understatement.

      I lived in his Congressional district for over a decade.  He was very involved and very available and constantly active in community issues, including those not directly related to his role as a Congressman.

      He wrote a letter to help get my Brother In Law transferred out of a potentially lethal situation and into a minimum security prison.  Because I asked, and because he had his staff check and found out I was telling the truth that he had no disciplinary issues.

      I'd put a few hours campaigning for him, but it's not like I'm "somebody".  I never had any money to donate.  

      My BIL wasn't his constituent, and we're talking about state prisons when he was a Congressman.

      Mr. Universe is a known degenerate Robotophile, and his sources include former Browncoat Traitors. What is their agenda in leaking top secret information about the Reavers and endangering us all?

      •  Thanks for sharing that. (0+ / 0-)

        Sometimes when things like this happen to politicians I've supported, I wonder if I've been duped all along. Certainly my Republican coworkers would say so, and it's hard not to sometimes question if they might be right when they speak their nonsense with such certainty. It's good to read a personal perspective on the good that he's done.

          if he's done what he's accused of.

          That's why all we can really judge is a persons actions - we can never know the totality of the person.
