Shelby GOP chairman Lang Wiseman has some questions for the press. With the election days away, I would like to know, too.
He writes: “Where are the stories reminding the voters about the tax liens, court judgments and personal financial problem of some of the Democrat candidates?
“Where are the stories reminding the voters about Democrat Juvenile Court Clerk candidate Shep Wilbun’s previous term in that office – that is, before the voters threw him out after the Tennessee Waltz investigation started poking around?
“Where are the stories about Democrat Trustee candidate Regina Newman’s recent $260,000 purchase of a new phone system that the County Finance Administration called unnecessary?
“Where are the stories about Criminal Court clerk candidate Minerva Johnican and the employee travael scandal that occurred during her previous term in that office – that is, before the voters threw her out? Or her effort to raise salaries before the new clerk could take over after she was defeated in the election? Or her incendiary comment back then that ‘the only good Republican is a dead Republican’ – a comment for which she has never apologized?”
I’d like some answers, too, and the voters surely would.
