Welcome to this week's show, where city council members try to out the purvey old man in the crowd.
Cedar Posts was convinced it was Dandy Andy Dulin or maybe the "fast to claim his innocence" Ed the Peacock. Fail Cedar!
During Monday's "Lighting Round", all council members voted in favor of opening a discussion of the Mayor's sexual harassment memo, except Warren Turner.
Nothing like being the only Army Volunteer who fails to take a step backward when the general asks for a volunteer to step forward.
Turner later explained that he didn't want the matter to go any further which might cause a lawsuit against the city by exposing the staff member who alleged the unwanted sexual advances.
Cedar is not a rocket scientist but lets see if we can work this out, the mayor has two staff members and the city clerk's office has four. Well I doubt it's the super sized one or the three who are over forty, so that leaves contestant number 3 and number 6. Whoa, number six is a guy!
The Meck Deck goes into more detail here. And the Charlotte Observer all but convicts Warren Turner with this morning's story "Officals Link Turner to Foxx Email".
Text of Mayor Foxx's Email:
Dear City Council Members:
We owe the citizens of Charlotte our very best effort every day, and I appreciate all of you for your investment of time and energy in making our city a better place. The responsibility, of course, extends to our personal treatment of staff as well, including not engaging in any form of sexual harassment towards them. Any such behavior cannot and will not be tolerated by me, our City Council or the public we serve, and I ask you to keep that in mind.
For those of you traveling to Washington D.C. this week, I wish you safe travels and a productive series of meetings with our congressional leaders and others.
So what is next? And do you get the feeling that our City County Government is just spinning out of control?
Bonus Round: Name a city council member who didn't want to view the Marcus Jackson file during a closed City Council session, answer Warren Turner. Hummmm makes you wonder doesn't it?
The Charlotte Observer closed the comment section on the Warren Turner story due to abusive comments. No censorship here, you are welcome to call Warren Turner out if you like. Just like NASCAR have at it boys!
