When an apology is another attack

What you will see in this video is nearly all of our county supervisors taking their own board comment time to address behavior they see as so serious and potentially dangerous that they cannot remain silent. I can’t overemphasize how significant that is. It’s a very unusual situation.

I hope you will take a minute to let these supervisors know what it means to you to have them speak up for those who were verbally attacked in such a horrible, dehumanizing way by Mr. Delgaudio, and do not have the privilege, as Mr. Miller said, of turning on a microphone in the boardroom to respond. You can find contact information at the end of this post.

More background on this January 20 meeting is here.

    I can sense the spin now. “It depends on what the meaning of the word ‘it’ is.” Way to go Delgaudio; why slander with adjectives when you can efficiently do it with a pronoun?

    The best part was the voting down of Delgaudio’s Robert’s Rules motion. He’s such an idiot!!

    What a spectacle!

    He should audition for Saturday Night Live. The part where he’s choking back tears because his transparent lie was called out (“He said I lied!“)? Priceless.

    Posted a summary on my blog with links back here. Thank you for covering this so well!

    Thanks, Liz. I see that you have acquired a new audience for your blog. Some people need to have their mouths washed out with soap. As I recall, that only happened to me once.

  7. liz says:

    Thanks, David! I knew the new audience would find me at some point. Surprised, frankly, that it took this long.
