Charlie White, Indiana Elections Chief, Indicted On Voter Fraud Charges

A REPUBLICAN?.....I NEVER WOULD HAVE GUESSED

FECES FUGITIVE....SOON TO BE FECES FELON?


I had the opportunity to speak with the Transit Police Officer this afternoon who arrested Gloria Soto at her home on Wednesday night. She was charged with criminal mischief and interfering with public transportation, both felony charges. On February 21, 2011 she allegedly smeared dog feces on the drivers seat and steering wheel of a TriMet bus which was on a layover at the Sunset Transit Center.


Since she was eighteen years old, she was transported to jail and has since been released. The officer told me that she had been "dared" by a friend to vandalize the bus in the above manner. The officer also wrote her a 90 day exclusion from TriMet property.


My personal message to Ms. Soto: " If you are going to do something this stupid, do it as a juvenile, not as an adult. You are now in deep doo doo."

"Feces menace" arrested


As far as nicknames go, that's pretty good.

JUST GOT OFF THE PHONE WITH JAY JACKSON

Very cordial fellow, said witnesses are allowed on step 3 but not step two hearings.


He assured me that I would receive a fair and impartial hearing and that “he doesn’t have a dog in this fight” and wants to hear “my side of the story”.
I take him at his word, seemed reasonable enough, so in the words of JACKIE GLEASON,
AND AWAY WE GO!

Is President Jon Hunt Fit?

  I question President Hunt’s ability to represent our membership. He has demonstrated that he will not assure that a document is factual and not misleading before signing it. He will take measures to “side step” or avoid issues that he is not interested in. He has handled two preferring of charge cases and both are handled differently. He will only send mail to some of the members who signed and not all. He will not preserve the security of a list of members. He will interfere with a member trying to protect himself/herself in place, wage, or any other willful act.
            President Hunt has violated our constitution in section 13.15 pages 58-59, section 21.6 pages 103-104, section 21.7 on page 114 and He is interfering with section 22. Our membership is in need to look at his actions closely. With the above facts does our membership feel comfortable while he represents us during so many contract negotiations?

SERFS LOSE INSURANCE COVERAGE IN PENNSYLVANIA-WASHINGTON-ARIZONA

Efforts to slash social spending in the name of budget deficits continue across the country. In Pennsylvania, more than 40,000 people have been dropped from a state-subsidized insurance program for the working poor. Newly elected Republican Gov. Tom Corbett cut the program adultBasic, citing a $4 billion budget deficit. The New York Times describes the move as "one of the largest disenrollments in recent memory." Before it closed, the program had been unable to keep up with massive demand. More than 505,000 people had been on its waiting list for enrollment. Meanwhile, in Washington state, Democratic Gov. Christine Gregoire has dropped 17,500 adults from a state-funded program for the working poor. Arizona Republican Gov. Jan Brewer has proposed eliminating Medicaid coverage for some 250,000 people.

OHIO NOBILITY READY TO SMASH ITS PUBLIC SECTOR WORK FORCE INTO SERFDOM

The Ohio State Senate has advanced a measure that would end collective bargaining rights for state employees. On Wednesday, the Republican-controlled chamber approved the legislation on a 17-to-16 vote. Six Republicans joined with Democrats in opposition. The measure is even more far-reaching than a similar bill in Wisconsin because it would also affect police officers and firefighters. The vote came one day after some 20,000 people rallied at the State Capitol in Columbus to oppose the bill. The Ohio House is expected to approve the measure next week. If enacted, Ohio would become the biggest state so far to curb the rights of public sector unions.

OUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK

Nine Afghan boys have been killed in a U.S.-led NATO attack in Afghanistan. The boys were gathering firewood in the northeastern province of Kunar when a helicopter opened fire. On Wednesday, U.S. commander, Lt. Gen. David Rodriguez, issued a public apology.

JAY JACKSON RULES ME OUT OF ORDER

From Jay:

Al I typically do not allow witnesses at Step II hearings; just the ATU rep and the employee attend. I do not plan on veering from that practice. I believe the paperwork is all in order.
