Re: ““Underdog” Lowery Lashes Out at Wharton, Herenton, Thaddeus Matthews

Maybe he spoke to the Germantown Democrats because, unlike AC Wharton, Myron Lowery is a Democrat. Wharton, Herenton's choice for mayor, is out for himself. Both Wharton and Herenton have used the Democratic Party for years just to advance their own interests.
In his first campaign for county mayor, Wharton ran away from the Democratic ticket and remained silent on the issue of consolidation. Now that he wants to be mayor of Memphis and doesn't need votes outside the city, he supports consolidation. He's a hypocrite and political opportunist, just like the former mayor.

Re: “Continuing Campaign Rollout, Wharton Opens HQ, Names Co-Chairs

AC is WW without the overblown ego. Now that Herenton has passed the baton to Wharton, it's clear that nothing much will change after the special election. Wharton may be a less-threatening candidate to the East Memphis devils, but he'll push for consolidation just as hard as WW did. Now that he doesn't need suburban voters, his true colors will show.

Re: “State Senator Paul Stanley, Blackmail Victim or Self-Victimizer?

Another Republican hypocrite bites the dust.
I'm sure the GOP is relieved (and surprised) that the college intern was a girl.

Re: “Malone's New Chairmanship Bid Doomed to Fail (UPDATE: It Did)

Back in 2002 when she was running for her first term, Joyce Avery circulated campaign literature suggesting that she was a graduate of both the U. of Ark. and UT. Ark. officials said she attended for "a few weeks" and UT said she received a certificate as a dental assistant. At the time, I was running against her and tried in vain to get Memphis media interested in her academic record. Perhaps now that she's achieved a position of importance in county govt, some industrious reporter will get off his ass and look into this.

Re: “Brainstorming the Herenton Candidacy (cont’d)

It's really very simple. He's nucking futs.
