When Ali Razavi, Martin Paredes, or David K write about me - which is pretty often - I normally just roll my eyes and laugh whenever I find out about it. Actually with David K I usually find out right away because I read his blog daily.
The other two I really don't bother with but eventually someone tells me about it.
But David K is straight up getting paid, or played, in his latest piece. Please read it so that you can be up to speed with his lunacy. Click here.
Normally when these fools write shit about me I don't even bother trying to dispel whatever it is they wrote because honestly its usually pretty entertaining and I'd be lying if I told you I didn't get a kick out of all the magical powers they assign me.
To hear them tell it, I am the all-powerful behind the curtains sentient being that runs this town. Which truth be told, if I was in charge around here the first thing I'd do is fix public transportation in the valley and then focus on UTEP football.
Seriously, this is Texas. We need a good football team to root for in this town.
Any who, now that you've had a chance to read DK's latest piece let me tell you what he won't tell you.
First of all, I was never a supporter of Larry Romero. I was rooting for Michael Apodaca. He's a friend of mine and we've worked together on a lot of things over the years in the Democratic Party. David K is a fucking idiot for saying I was supporting Romero. Its another one of those times where he just makes shit up out of nowhere. I think I might have said I thought Romero was going to win in the runoff once it was down to him and Tolbert, but thats about it.
I was supportive of Mikey all the way. I attended his campaign kick-off event. Five Points Bistro as I recall. Yet again, David K shows he doesn't know what he's talking about.
And opposed to the ballpark? Are you fucking kidding me? I love that place. Anyone that knows me, or follows me on social media, knows I've been all for the team and stadium since they unveiled the uniforms. That alone shows you how full of shit David K is. If he can't even get that shit right about me, there is no reason to believe anything else he says.
David K was fed that stuff about Ordaz's staffer, only its a far more embellished fish story from when it was first pitched to me. How do I know?
Because the same member of council that pitched it to him, tried to pitch it to me. And while DK loves to blame Ordaz for everything from Starbucks' Red Cup to Ben Carson plummeting in the polls, I was unaware of her staff change until I was informed by the same city rep that pitched the story to him. I was actually late to the party because from what I have now gathered since then, it was like a full week after it happened.
It was also pitched to media.
And no one bit.
Because when something is pitched to media and they don't bite on it, its the universal sign in the media that something is bullshit.
Only now David K gets to be the pendejo that wrote about it and ultimately looks like a fool for going with a fabricated story to help a city council ally. Which is funny because its the very same thing he frequently accuses me of doing.
How very Martin Paredes of him.
But what does he care what the truth is? I'm guessing that the facts aren't anywhere near what David K claims them to be. And its pretty smart what he and his click do when you think about it. Start a whisper campaign that you can walk away from and say "well thats how I heard it" when it all blows up in his face, but will never really go away because its on obvious HR issue and because of privacy policies almost never come to light.
I'm betting he will owe a lot of people apologies too, but I'm also betting they won't get them either.
Although his allies should probably thank their lucky stars that HR issues don't come to light and that other bloggers don't spread unconfirmed innuendo about their staffers right?
But that's David K's turf, not mine.
The rest of his piece is essentially accusing the Times of participating in a grand conspiracy to take down Romero over something that was old news. Which is weird because confirmation of a business relationship between Romero and the big shot from the other financial advisor firm only recently came to light.
And of course David K is still pushing his narrative of there being absolutely nothing wrong with the City Manager's raise. This guy is has his head in the sand or this is a willful effort on his part and others to create an alternate reality.
Its entertaining, but damn he's looking like a total fool right now.
But one thing is for sure, when the dust settles on all of this, as sure as someone will die in a Walmart being trampled during a Black Friday sale, David K will find a way to spin it saying he knew it all along.
Sure you did David, sure you did.
