This isn't the storm I was expecting, but whoo-boy – there's a lot of thunder going on. Disclosure: I supported Kooiker in his bid for mayor.
This one kind of threw me and I'm trying to get my hands on the 1000 pages of e-mails, which ought to be public record now. I'd at least like to see the 110 pages referred to in the first part of the complaint. I'd like to study them before posting too much. Obviously, I have an opinion. But I want to see all the stuff that's available before telling you all what I think of this, although I think some of you might suspect what I'm thinking of it.
There are plenty of other people commenting on the Journal's story here. The PDF of the resolution is available at the Journal's site. I have it and have read it, but can't figure out how to post it.
Feel free Forumpians to try to figure this one out. Like I said, I'm a little stunned. I'll post when I know more. I'm also trying to find the code of conduct the resolution of censure sites.
I also think it is important to note that Kevin's post on Blogmore is in error. The council has not voted to approve a censure of Kooiker. They voted to set a public hearing to consider the resolution to censure Kooiker. He has not been censured, yet.
As for that other storm...I think it's still brewing. If my information is correct, you'll know it when you see it and should be coming soon. If my information is wrong, someone is trying to blame an innocent, which is why I haven't given more detail.
