Well it`appears to have been launched a little bit ago, but anyways it is out there. It is highly diappointing that they don't allow comments, but some people are afraid of diverging points of view, so it is understandable. Without further adieu:
After reading Brian's comment that I was up Jon Stainbrook's ass, I felt it was important to clarify my feelings about Jon Stainbrook and the Lucas County Republican Party.
I composed this tally for thread on Glass City Jungle.
Talk about ineffective leadership, let’s look at Jon's accomplishments in the last 6 months:
-Forgets to file paperwork to get Jan Scotland on the ballot, blames everyone and their uncles. His own mistake cost citizens the right to a second choice. Of course that is a “rookie mistake” although I can’t remember any other rookies making this mistake in the past.
During FOX Toledo News' extended You Decide 2008 coverage of the presidential election as well as the regional races and issues, a panel of area experts brought insight and lively discussion throughout the evening.
I did not know Jon was "Joe the Plumber's" unofficial spokesperson. I don't know what to take from the impression the author presents, it could go both ways: positive and negative. What do you think?
What was funny is now just becoming sad. Maggie Thurber is reporting that the Lucas GOP is late again on an important deadilnes and they are admitting they have not filed a complete report. Are they violating the law by not filing?
By now its no secret Jon Satinbrook worked for John Kerry according to the Blade, and his hottie Megan Gallagher worked for Democrats Ben Konop and Jack Ford.
From stealing medicine from a sick patient at the Toledo Hospital to Lucas County GOP Central Committee chair
Yesterday, I posted a link of some protesters protesting the Lucas County GOP and I thought it was interesting that there was a mug shot of Meghan Gallagher on the poster. Well a little bit of snooping around landed me some more information on why she has a mug shot in the court system. The reason: Meghan was caught stealing medicine from a sick patient at the Toledo Hospital.
Lisa Renee took some photos of the event and I noticed Jon Stainbrook protesters at the McCain event (no Aaron Lewis of Staind was not there). Interesting that there was a Megan Gallagher mug shot being used on the one sign.
I was sent another photo from someone else:
The Fallen Timbers Republican Club joins other area clubs denouncing the endorsement of Levies by the Party Chairman
In following the admirable lead of Jeff Simpson and The Young Republican Club, The Fallen Timbers Republican Club Executive Board Members officially oppose the endorsement of levies, including the COSI levy, by the Lucas County Republican Party.
Toledo, OH - The Executive Board of the Greater Toledo Republican Women voted unanimously to speak out against the decision of the Lucas County Republican Party to endorse a variety of tax levies, including the COSI Levy. As Republicans we have no business lending our support to increase taxes for our community.
If this is an example of the "New Party", then we are in for only more disappointment. It sounds very Rinoish. Thank goodness that the Young Republicans (I am Vice President) are standing up for lower taxes and good government. If you did not hear Jon this morning on Fred's show you should.
Young Republicans oppose Republican Party Levy Endorsement
Jeff SImpson, head of the Young Republicans will be on with me Friday for a discussion of his group's decision to oppose the Lucas County Party position on COSI. As background be sure to listen to the Stainbrook interview at the podcast site http://www.wspd.com/pages/fredstop10.html. Pay close attention to the caller at the end of the interview and what he says about the tie vote breaker.
Derek Merrin, mayor of Waterville, a member of the Lucas County Republican Party was reffered to this morning on my show as "the whiny mayor of Waterville" by one of Jon Stainbrook's operatives. He also claims that the mayor has not volunteered to help on the McCain campaign.
Following the debate Jon Stainbrook will appear with me on Thursday morning to talk about who won, and to give details on the McCain visit on Sunday. I was thinking about asking the mayor to come on despite the ban but then realized he would just lie anyway.
Also Jared Davis the founder of Check 'N Go on Issue 5 on the ballot.
Should be fun.
For those of you who did not get to attend the Obama event you can read about it at:
Troy Neff took time out of his show today to explain why the replican party was asked to do the show yesterday. He gave all the details of how Jon Stainbrook and Matthew Bartow were invited to host and when they turned it down.
Jon Stainbrok and Matthew Bartow were invited to host the Troy Neff show this morning. Troy trying to reach an olive branch over to rest of the GOP. Matthew had informed the show they chose to decline the invitation. John chose to spend 5 minutes on another show instead of four hours talking to his candidates and the issues that that are important for the Lucas County GOP.
Jon Stainbrook, head of the Lucas County GOP, talks about the last 30 days of the campaign and tonight's debate. He doesn't always agree with the candidate's strategy but it's something you won't hear anywhere else. Podcast available here http://www.wspd.com/pages/fredstop10.html Enjoy!
