Wild, right? Like the truth shouldn't play any role in judging the ethics and morals of the person a city selects to be its highest ranking executive. Rather those reporting this need to be silenced by the government, and their newspapers banned.
Here is the latest in a long series of letters that have been sent to Arcadia City Hall. A locale some delusional individuals believe is a palace of secrets, when in reality it is a place where hiding such things from the public is deemed criminal behavior by the State of California.
Trust me, the quickest way to get your letter printed here is to send it to City Hall.
I am sorry, but such extraordinary ignorance regarding how things actually work in the world's oldest functioning democracy has to be given the notice it deserves.
But wait, there's more!
Where there are fools a really stupid social media site cannot be far behind. And these sensitive souls who want the government to ban a free press in Arcadia because it hurts their feelings do have a place to go and air out their peevish whining. And that is the Voice of Arcadia's Facebook page.
Trust me, the VOA folks get very upset when they don't get their way. Here is yet another example of their ongoing war against a reality too cruel for them to deal with truthfully.
Just some of the craziest nonsense you'll read anywhere. Allow me to count the ways.
2) The first City Council member to denounce voter fraud two meetings ago was actually Sho Tay. It was he who helped agendize the topic for council discussion, and fully supported sending the evidence, first published here on The Tattler, to the County for investigation.
3) The claim that the FPPC has dismissed Sho Tay's alleged campaign violations is laughable nonsense. There were three separate charges of political malfeasance filed with the FPPC. While one was rejected, the other two were declared to have enough merit to justify an investigation. Those are now being carefully examined, and will be for at least several more weeks. After which judgements will be issued.
4) The inference that this is all the result of some vast conspiracy involving the entire city government of Arcadia, its City Council, the FPPC, the County of Los Angeles Registrar's office, the District Attorney's office, several news outlets, plus hundreds of concerned residents of all nationalities and political persuasions, is paranoia at a very disturbing level.
These Voice of Arcadia people just might be full on nuts.
So you know, next week The Tattler will be revealing some shocking new information about these investigations. Many people will like what we publish, and some won't. These reports will be posted should you care to review them, but nobody has to read anything we put here.
We're just going to let the chips fall where they may. That's the way it goes on this blog. If you don't like that, go and read something else. Or don't read anything. I don't care.
But believe me, it was never our intention to hurt anyone's feelings.
