Unless there’s something weird is going on with our android pad, it looks like Fronnie’s doing things the easy way now: she’s just blocking all of her outside comments entirely. If so, when did this policy change begin?
If anything, you’d think that a renewed and (now) energized election season would be the time when you’d actually encourage more comments. Unless of course you’re a disappointed Springer supporter who just saw her chances of beating Dr. Gordon get much worse re: the latest vote count, and you don’t want to feel the extra heat.
Or let people publicize the obvious advantages of some of her opponents.
Here’s an odd sentence too from Fronnie’s recent piece about the vote count:
Per a new Burbank election code, the city clerk’s office could accept mail-in ballots postmarked on or before primary election day, February 28, up until noon on Friday.
Sorry, but the local election code had nothing to do with it. Her fault or not, Fronnie’s leaving out the story that our Burbank City Council was forced to amend their own ballot toss-out rule because the state made them do it. Neither the City of Burbank nor the city clerk deserve any credit for the change. And it’s not a matter of “could,” either. They have to count all of these votes.
And such just desserts, too. As we pointed out yesterday, this state law change bumped Frutos out of a guaranteed top spot and made it much easier for Dr. Gordon to beat establishment-choice Sharon Springer in the runoff.
No wonder this booster crowd is being so nasty now. Such a disappointment, yes. Damn! So bring out Big Gun Rogers and his bag of rotting red herrings.
Anyone else notice too how slow/intransigent the city clerk was this week in fully announcing the big news? She waited until almost the last minute to deliver the blow. What a difference with how quickly Frutos was annointed the presumed victor on Tuesday.
