Yesterday Tim Nelson had a press conference to call Candy Andy out on using public money to help Darrell Ankarlo peddle his nasty bigoted tome and prop up his sagging ratings.   A scoop which, by the way, was broken by Stephen Lemons at the New Times.  It’s likely that no one would have paid attention to it had the Feathered Bastard not written about it in his column and followed it up on his blog.   Both the Democratic candidates got wind of it and Tim grabbed the ball and got it in the news.   Here’s Sarah Penske’s New Times piece on it:  http://blogs.phoenixnewtimes.com/valleyfever/2008/07/tim_nelson_takes_on_maricopa_c.php

Turns out Thomas used RICO money, inappropriately, to fund Ankarlo’s little Barnes and Nobles junkets.    And the $11,500 that went toward that is the least of it, when it comes to Candy Andy helping himself and his cronies to money seized in organized crimes. 

The press conference was held prior to a debate between Nelson and Gerald Richard and Sarah has a few good words to say about that as well.  I’m sorry I missed it but it was Bunco night in Chandler. 

After you read Sarah’s piece, be sure to check out Lemons’ latest on the situation

It’s likely no one in town will give me any credit for breaking the story that KTAR 92.3 FM is getting moolah from the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office for top lip-flapper Darrell Ankarlo’s book tour. (Sniff.) But that’s OK. You know who broke that story, boyos.

So this is me, officially giving the Feathered Bastard credit where credit is due.
