CCR/DW 05-18-15 Melancholy Tweets

the   Controversial  Committee   Report
“We don’t raise sacred cows...we just butcher them.”

   Staff of the CCR  sadly announces that Dylan Westie, Executive editor and Part-time wordsmith and newly appointed Social Media Troll for the CCR, has again developed a serious case of paw-itis.
   This condition affects Dylan when he has had a busy week composing and alerting folks to the shenanigans being inflicted on all the good people in ‘beautiful downtown’ Irving.  And such was the case last week when he dug into the "domestic non-profit corporation" formed to assist QueenB VD, her co-dependent council members (read: Pet Rocks), mega-cash cow cronies who finance her political ambitions, special interest groups and, of course, single source developers.  The name given to this specious organization was: "Irving Opportunity Council."
   The digging of information for Dylan was really intense, as the sole purpose of this nefarious group appears to be to collect mega-bucks from Sugar Daddy supporters of the queen to influence, sway and attempt to wrestle political control of the council for their self-serving agenda.  The digging was made even more complicated as "Irving Opportunity Council" is not required to inform citizens, voters or the general public as to whom may be participating (read: donating) to the group, or how much they may have contributed to this unsavory effort.
   In essence, the individuals and amounts contributed to "Irving Opportunity Council" are hidden from public view.  Hidden, as in, "we know who gave and how much, but we are not going to tell you!" 
   Of course, three individuals associated with "Irving Opportunity Council are known: Marvin Randle, Joe Mapes and Scott Yeldell, who has an Austin address.  These are the individuals who established the "council" which certainly is not an elected body by any stretch of the imagination.
   (While staff of the CCR could speculate as to whom some of the other cash cow cronies might be, we will hold off naming names for the time being.  However, if you should have specific knowledge, drop us a line.)
   The "Irving Opportunity Council" probably had ‘good buddy’ assistance from Irving’s State representatives, "Bogus-Gate Complaint" Anderson and "Squeaky" Rinaldi.  One hundred legislators signed on a bill to change, for the benefit of the general public and voters, the reporting requirements for these non-profit corporations.  However, the measure did not clear for passage due to those who benefit from this ‘organized political-money-laundering’ activity.  They prefer to keep their campaign slush funds out of public view!  
   And apparently, Irving’s representatives believe the hidden money they may receive from similar organizations trumps voters interest and the need to know.  Really?!
   Regardless, the issue may be dead in the Texas legislature for the time being, but it will be alive and well in Irving.  With the District 4 runoff election just around the corner, staff of the CCR will be monitoring the activity and hidden money which might be pumped into Councilman Joe Putnam’s opponent’s campaign.
   While the hidden money collected by "Irving Opportunity Council" is a secret to voters, it is no secret that QueenB VD wants Putnam’s opponent to win.  This would allow her north Irving cash cow cronies to have total control of the city council.  And part of her plan probably includes spending huge sums of "Irving Opportunity Council" bucks to support Putnam’s opponent.
   Basically, what "Irving Opportunity Council" wants to do is to control the Irving City council for their personal benefit and agenda.  In this run off election, they might attempt to buy a south Irving council seat to achieve that purpose. 
   Dear readers, south Irving is not for sale!  And you should alert any friends, associates or voters as to what is transpiring in this run off election.
   With all of this as a prelude, here are Dylan’s tweets from last week.  The above information will hopefully provide detail a 140-character tweet cannot.

Dylan Westie @DylanWestie1 May 17
Will QueenB (Irving mayor) insist "Irving Opportunity Council" publish names and contribution amounts for Dist 4 run off materials? Why not?

   Yes, the run off election will boil down between a seasoned and knowledgeable council member, Putnam, who does not tolerate the political antics of the newly formed political slush fund in their attempt to buy a council seat vs. his opponent, a retired city employee, who could stand to gain significantly from the money-spending-political antics of "Irving Opportunity Council."

Note:  For followers of Dylan Westie on FaceBook, you should know he no longer utilizes that page.  He has joined the CCR publisher with another measure to achieve his new trolling activities for the reports.  And this shouldn’t disturb too many folks, as he was very exclusive in who could even have access to his page…which is the same with his twitter account.
