I was dismayed this morning when I hopped online and noticed none other than Bruce McCain had purchased an ad on Blue Oregon. That would be sort of like me running for office and seeking an ad on Oregon Catalyst (which ain’t gonna happen).
I mentioned McCain on a previous post. Here’s what I wrote:
You might remember good ole Bruce as the promoter in chief of Bernie when he was in a pinch. He served both as an internal lackey and and external lawyer. Maybe if he gets elected, he can have Derrick Foxworth named as his designee so the long awaited punchline will continue to elude us. Or Lon Mabon.
I go on to say:
McCain had an op-ed published in the Oregonian this week where he blasts Skipper. Showing his true ethical colors, McCain neither disclosed that he was defeated for Sheriff by Skipper in the past nor that he was planning to run in the primary next year apparently against Skipper if needed.
McCain is the same Bruce McCain that represented Lon Mabon's Oregon Citizen’s Alliance. And for those of you paying attention, it’s the same right wing McCain that took on Jeff Merkley in 2006.
The Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office need a clean break from it’s recent streak of bad news. Bruce McCain is the status quo that will make sure the mockery continues for years.
Fortunately, the Oregon voters have rejected McCain for his previous bids for office. Hopefully the voters of Multnomah county will have the wisdom to do so again. Let’s hope someone qualified, hard working and electable steps up to run.
[Note from Kari: Jesse asked me to briefly describe our advertising policy. In short, as long as the ad isn't spam, we'll publish it. First, we believe in political free speech. Second, if someone - even a conservative - wants to spend their money helping progressive blogging survive, that's OK by us. Third, we trust our readers to sort things out for themselves. And fourth, we've had some legal advice that suggests that our legal position is best served by acting as a traditional media outlet with respect to advertising. In short, the ads here shouldn't be seen as any kind of endorsement by BlueOregon, its contributors, or it's readers.]
