    is Ohiobama going to show up now? He's been trying to sell us Krikorian for most of the past year, at which time he was working for Krikorian, although he now puts up a disclaimer saying he doesn't at this time. (He admitting to "consulting" for him in the past). That poster often appeared posting diaries touting Kirkorian's absurd person polling, in which his was the only name polled against Schmidt, while all the other candidates were listed as "other." His constant posting of attacks on Todd Book based on rumours got a bit old too.

    I met Surya Yalamanchili the last time I was in Columbus for a progressive event, and I was very impressed with him. He's bright, articulate and seems to be a good, clear progressive. He seems to have the momentum for the nomination too. As to whether he can beat Schmidt, it's hard to say. It's a tough district. But certainly Surya seems to have the energy to give it a good try.

      That poster has become more than tiresome.

      I'm leaning Chili. Haven't heard from or about the 3rd in the race - Parker, perhaps? I remember Krikorian far too well to vote for him.

    •  I am not now nor have I ever been (0+ / 0-)

      employed by the Krikorian campaign. And as is clear from my past diaries, I supported Vic Wulsin in 2006 and 2008. Happy now, Senator McArthy? (Oops, does that count as outing?)

      You tried to claim before that my NEWS REPORTING about Todd Book's scandal and resulting withdrawal was "made up." As I recall, you posted that comment just microseconds before the story hit the mass media, and Book did in fact withdraw, on the day I said he would.

      As to the scandal involving his father's Georgia construction company using non-union labor to work on a school construction project in Book's Ohio district, I think it might dawn on you that the Laborer's Union pulling its endorsement from Book and switching its endorsement to Krikorian might count as corroboration. Or don't you know any labor people to check it with?  Or do you think that unions switch endorsements based on rumor?

      •  You, yourself, disclosed that you're an advisor (0+ / 0-)

        to the Krikorian campaign. You're splitting hairs now.

          Unpaid advisor is not the same as staff. You know that because YOU have disclosed that you have previously worked as staff on campaigns, and you changed that disclosure when you left staff positions and became an unpaid advisor.

          I have also disclosed that I advise MANY campaigns and public officials, not all Democratic. I advise on issues on which I hold expertise.
