Thumb To Nose, Raspberry

by at 12:12 pm.

Call it silly, but I got a chuckle out of seeing Gerry Nutter thumb his nose at the Editor of the Blog of Record.

Sun Loses Public Records Request on Treasurer Applicants Resumes


Sadly, I don’t expect the Editor to learn a lesson from this. Sadder still, it’s unlikely that a few on the City Council, those that parrot the Editor’s ignorant grandstanding, will either.

The beat goes on.

    Instead of taking it on the chin, lesson learned, the petulant cub reporter opted to spin around and suggest Tom Moses had failed in delivering on his word.

    City Councilor Rodney Elliott raised concerns about Lynch’s decision last October, saying Moses recommended a friend, and that Moses and Labrecque had recently gone on a golf vacation together.

    Labrecque admitted to The Sun he and Moses were friends and had gone on several golf vacations together, including a trip to South Carolina the same month Lynch named him the new treasurer.

    Under pressure from Elliott, Moses told the City Council he would seek an opinion from the state Ethics Commission about whether he violated ethics laws by not recusing himself from the hiring process.

    Moses declined comment on Friday when asked if he ever requested the ethics opinion or received one.

    I don’t think Moses and Lebrecque BBQ together. As far as I know, they are professional acquaintances. “Friends” is a word often misapplied. I think the cub report exploits its use, above.

    Let’s note how this story twists from explaining how the CM was validated by the SOS’s office, proving C.Elliott and The Sun were grandstanding and wasting time and energy. Note how the story tries to twist by conjuring a feeling that Moses is suspect.

    I think I will now refer to Lyle Moran as “the dung beetle.” Whatever C.Elliott/Campi plop into the public square, Moran rolls it out.
