For those of you who missed it, Billy Bradbury's mouthpiece, Anne Martens, issued a diatribe calling Jim Ludwick, Victoria Taft and Linda Flores a bunch of racists.
In addition to my response here where I highlighted the Elections Division's policy on neutrality (and the fact that Anne Martens excuses a murderer) the Oregonian, in a desperate attempt to plug BlueOregon yet again, did a story on the issue. (The only part of the article that suprised me was that they didn't lovingly refer to Porky Pig, errr, Kari Chisholm as a "media consultant" rather than the "political hack" that his own website proclaims him to be.)
All this caused Miss Martens to issue a "disclaimer" back on BlueOregon.
It has come to my attention, however, that a number of people have attempted to connect my piece – which represents my personal views and mine alone – with my employer, the Oregon Secretary of State’s office.
In addition to my job duties, I am also a citizen.
I think that it is opportunistic and dishonest to attempt to impute something under my personal by-line to my employer in an effort to stir up a political maelstrom.
And she is absolutely right. Someone's personal beliefs don't mean they aren't qualified for any job... except judges. Democrats won't even let them attend church these days, let alone have a personal opinion on abortion or gay marriage.
Oh, and Senate majority leaders can't wish people "Happy Birthday" either.
Scott Summers? Who's that?
Do I really need to keep going to highlight the hypocrisy? Imagine if we had someone in the elections division who said the kind of things that Bill Cosby says. (He's absolutely correct) Democrats would scream that this person should be fired immediately because he is a racist and can't gurantee fair elections or elections rules.
Ok one more, I've asked the Oregonian to put my blog in their "blogs" sections online about 10 times with no response. BlueOregon gets featured in hard news articles several times a year.
