So then, is the saga of the Human Rights debacle over, or will Bookmeyer continue to pick at it until it festers like an open sore infecting the community as a whole? He’s already asked Tom Meyer the city attorney to check the law on Human Right’s commissioners appointments…refusing to let it die even after the council tried it’s best to offer a compromised motion which circumvents the mayor’s authority. This new measure now needs two more reading to become law in this city.
The council had the choice to leave the mayor out of it entirely but chose rather as a show of wanting to co-operate, to allow him to offer names in consideration. His show of gratitude was to continue to pick at this wound. This debacle probably will be the cause of his political failure…which is something it should not be. The real reason should instead be incompetence, self -centeredness….that along with elitism.
He easily found a willing partner in Turncoat; this major mistake was quick to throw himself onto the sword in sacrifice for Bookmeyer. It did not surprise me one bit. How does the saying go; “Birds of a feather flock together.” Even though Bookmeyer was thwarted in his brazen attempt to close the door of hope, and Turncoat was exposed as a liar….even if he teaches Sunday School, their feeble efforts only served to exposed their true nature. Solberg is on that bus with the two of them but she’s facing the wrong way trying to figure where the bus is headed.
