Thompson is the ultimate flip flopper. Didn't he oppose re-opening White Street when he was running the first time? Seems like he'll say anything to get elected. He's a goner. There are too many angry people who are upset about the landfill.

Joe Killian

It's up on the website now.

Comments should be interesting.

Billy Jones

The right wing has become desperate-- they're eating their own. Soon they'll have no one to run against the left.

Ron

I don't blame Zack for being upset. The downtown curfew was his baby. That would piss me off too if another council person took credit for it.

Brian

The downtown curfew was as big a waste of time as library porn. Here's hoping the next council lets the curfew "sunset" at the end of this year.

Wow! Two stories in two days illustrating a complete lack of integrity. I am insulted by his arrogant assumption that he can get away with this type of slimy behavior. I can only imagine what he does when no one is looking.

Danny refiled his paperwork weeks ago with the Board of Elections stating that he would be raising more than $1,000. By re-filing paperwork he has not violated any campaign finance laws.

Ed Cone

LKF, the Rhino acknowledges that refiling, but says Thompson's still in violation of the rules.

Honestly, this is an example of the paper's wordiness moving beyond annoying to confusing, so I'll send an EdCone.com virtual tote-bag or coffee mug to the reader who posts the most concise and accurate summary.

Writing compact prose is hard, as Mark Twain famously said. And a great editor I worked for said, If you can't explain it simply, you haven't done enough reporting.

Danny was shady about his reporting two years ago. I started looking at his finances upon learning that he made a WFMY ad buy that likely cost a chunk of change. That buy, plus signs and functions surely cost more than the minimum for reporting... at a much earlier time than he actually reported.

L-K as Hammer points out the Threshold Report addresses INTENT. Thompson always intended to spend more than $1000. He violated the spirit of the law the minute he signed the Threshold Report. Thompson thinks he's the smartest guy in the room. I think his campaign strategy failed.

Ed, how is this for a summary? "Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive". By Sir Walter Scott
