CCR 06-03-15 Happy NTAHD

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

   Are you celebrating?  What?  Have you forgotten what today is?  Yes, dear readers, this is National Thank A Hypocrite Day (NTAHD).  

   And QueenB VD will be awfully upset if you fail to acknowledge and send best wishes and hypocritical greetings her way.

   The history of National Thank A Hypocrite Day started four years ago in QueenB VDs realm.

   For those who continue to suffer with PADD (Political Attention Deficit Disorder), remember the three splintered planks in the campaigns when QueenB VD ran for mayor?  She promised to: bring new ethics to the city council; provide a new era of transparency; and would stop all the ‘backroom deals’ by council members.

   She sold those promises with the slickness a snake oil salesman would envy.  And the gullible actually believed her.

   So, how is the queen doing after four years?  If you believe an 0 - 3 record is good, then you are probably one of the TEA sippin,’ Kool-Aid addicts, and closed-minded minions who still believe politicos will not lie to obtain a vote.

   Let’s look at the facts for just a couple of QueenB VDs political reversals:

Ethics: After passing a bland, watered down and unenforceable revision to the city’s ethics ordinance, QueenB VD voted and approved two cases.  Those cases had a contributing crony to her campaign, with documented conflict of interest for the issue being considered, seeking council approval.  Cronyism is alive and well in the queen’s realm.

Transparency:  It wasn’t very transparent when QueenB VD, along with her Pet Rocks, divided the city over a resolution of support for State HB 562, which did not even see the House floor for a vote this past legislative session.  HB 562 was an effort to support her newly found TEA Party pals, "Bogus-gate Complaint" Anderson and "Squeaky" Rinaldi, to create chaos and fear which could only be resolved by TEA sippers inciting potential voters into a Flying Harpy frenzy on FaceBook. 

Backroom Deals:  QueenB VD now has a ‘backroom’ that only her Sugar Daddy contributors, Marvin Randle, Joe Mapes and a gaggle of Austin ‘ambulance chasers’ know the location of.  Yes, the Irving Opportunity Council makes ‘backroom deals,’ in a smoke filled room, which would shut down Cool River Cafe.  The primary function of the queen’s back room is to collect mega-bucks, "Dark Money," which does not require the donors or amounts being known by the general public or voters.  Those bucks are currently being flushed into and flooding the campaign to unseat Councilman Joe Putnam.  The irony: Three years ago, the same folks, behind the "Dark Money," supported Putnam.  What happened?  Well, Putnam would not kowtow to QueenB VDs single source developers, special interest concerns and her north Irving string pullers.

   With all the "Dark Money" QueenB VD and the Irving Opportunity Council happens to be pumping into the run off election to unseat Putnam, one fact remains.  The mailings this group is flooding south Irving with are full of half-truths, lies and total distortions.  And sadly, the puppet that benefits from all this misinformation will owe the queen and her north Irving cohorts if their efforts are successful.  And this is how south Irving gets sold out!

   In essence, QueenB VD and the Irving Opportunity Council is attempting to buy votes and the election to control the Irving City council for northern Irving special interest.

   To assist in spreading the word of the devious tactics being utilized by QueenB VD and the Irving Opportunity Council, Dylan Westie, Executive editor/Part-time wordsmith and Social Media Troll for the CCR, has diligently been hacking his keyboard with tweets to inform all the voters in ‘beautiful downtown Irving.’

   The following represents the first three days of early voting tweets.  If you haven’t been paying attention to the run off election, now would be a good time to start.

Dylan Westie @DylanWestie1 Jun 1
QueenB (Irving mayor) P/T mayor, F/T campaigning (IOC bucks?) @ … spreading political malfeasance to the masses. Yikes!

Dylan Westie @DylanWestie1 May 31
Need an SUV or living expenses cash? Maybe Irving Opportunity Council to assist @  Buying elections kids play for them

   Give Dylan a helping hand, or paw.  Go vote early (June 1-9), or on election day (June 13).  More importantly, start following him on Twitter to eliminate his having to re-work his tweets for CCR reports.  His "paw-itis" is painful for a canine his age!

   And remember, south Irving is not for sale to QueenB VD and the Irving Opportunity Council.
   Re-elect Joe Putnam and south Irving concerns will be attended to as they have during the years he has represented this area…with pride, dignity and integrity.
