Some Oversight

Hello Voters and Supporters,

The dubiousness of the rating game is all starting to tie together after reading one of the so-called alternative sites, Publicola.com, under an article about councilwoman Jane Hague and an applicant for the so-called elections oversight committee, in which it is reported that the applicant said he was recommended by Ms. Huff for appointment to the committee. Really? I didn't realize that the director actually recommends candidates for the oversight committee. If this is true, it's like the Yankees recommending to the baseball commissioner which umpires it wants for their games. Yet, this same oversight committee has a person on the municipal league, and the municipal league is going around rating director candidates. It's more cozy between these three entities (municipal league, oversight & elections) than I ever imagined since I didn't know, until recently, that the elections department had a say on who oversees them.

As readers of Commoner know, I was, of course, not pleased by the rating that the municipal league gave me this year, especially being aware of how they rated a certain other candidate in the special election of '09. For more about this particular disparity, see "Post Script" in our Carnival blog.
