The Emperor Strikes Back

WSPD is reporting that their reporter was physically barred from attending a news conference by Mayor Carlton Finkbeiner. This is a clear violation of the 1st Amendment to the Constitution. WSPD holds the same credentials for broadcast, has a recognized news program, and is entitled to the same rights as any television station (of which several were admitted) or newspaper (at least one entered.)

One wonders, will the Blade report this behavior by their beloved Mayor? Or, does the "civility" they demand of Ken Blackwell on this very day not apply to Finkbeiner. For once, I eagerly await tomorrow's edition - it may even be read before being relegated to puppy duty.

Toledo's "beloved" mayor and his spokesperson "scout" had better get their choreography worked out before trying to tap-dance their way out of this one.

Rumor has it that there are 6 feet and at least one tail between them ;-)

I have my money on multiple lawsuits and a bald-faced lying mayor myself ;-)

Update on the Blade: Still no breaking news on the Mayor's First Ammendment violation. I gues it's true, "All of yesterday's news that fit for the left to print."
