Let's not elect a Democrat to Council District 9

This is not good for the Democrats.
Carlisle aide pleads guilty and will testify against councilwoman Pittsburgh Councilwoman Twanda Carlisle's defense against theft charges became more difficult yesterday when alleged co-conspirator Darlene Durham pleaded guilty to transferring $19,480 in city money to the embattled official.
Luke Ravenstahl was in city council when some of this went down.

He was President of City Council when some of this happened and then failed to support real spending reform.

Twanda = D

Burgess = D

Corruption = Pittsburgh

Politicians in Pittsburgh = D


Yep, there is a leap in logic. But, it isn't a big step.

Most of all, look to the future. When the forumla is

Pittsburgh = ALWAYS D not matter what.

Then what???

Or, Pittsburgh options = ZERO

Hence, corruption sustains itself.

And, Peer Review = less that trusted.

This has little to do with the Burgess campaign and a lot to do with one party rule, trust, peer review, and accountability.
