There is a good article about the OpenBand discussion over at TC. Since I don’t have my regular computer, you will have to find it for yourselves. The slimeball Bouna talks about delicate negotiations with the board and how he will do what is in the best interests of HIM. But the county attorney steps in and says no one must recuse themselves for the campaign contributions as long as it isn’t about land. If the agreement stifles competition and utilizes public right-of-ways for its sole use then it is about land. Are these people that dumb? It’s rhetorical. The answer is yes.
When I interviewed Ms. Clarke before the election I saw something in her that I believed would help change the way Loudoun does business. I asked her a question on both my behalf and Eric’s about conflict votes and campaign contributions. When specifically asked about what she would do when OpenBand business came before the board, she said she would are recuse herself. Not legally whether it was voluntary or not…..but to recuse herself period. It seems that again these politicos feel it is the campaign money in their pockets and not the citizens that got them elected. Wrong. And I was wrong about her. Just goes to show how peoples words mean nothing anymore. No ethics other than power management and helping their “buddies”. Too bad. I guess it is time for me to start using some of my retirement time digging dirt on all these slimeballs. Maybe I’ll get lucky enough to dig up something criminal that can be chargable. Whatever may come your way I have no more sympathy. It looks like shit politics with shitty people all over again. You lied, Janet. Have you no moral code?
