Extra! Extra! Tulsa Tribunal Takes Truth To New Low

To date, Tulsans for Election Integrity have yet to distribute any information in opposition to recall. To some degree, this is the result of our having raised very little funds to date. However, we haven't gone after many funds to date, as we have been giving the Mayor an opportunity to end this recall before we have to trouble our supporters by asking for money.

However, no mailer or commercial produced by TEI could ever show exactly how sophomoric, selfish and dishonest the recall proponent are, better than the Tulsa Tribunal mock-newsletter that was sent to my constituents twe weeks ago.

Believing that anyone who reads this thing (especially if they are familiar with the ranting of Mr. Bob Poe at the Chamber's annual meeting last week), will see which side is the side of the angels, I have decided to post it in .jpeg format for downloading.

That way, if you live outside of the district, you don't have to be denied access to what may well live as one of the worst strategic blunders ever devised by a political campaign.

I have only been able to scan and clean up the front and back covers. I hope to have the two inside pages available for your amusement and edification within the next couple of days.

I haven't read such a rambling, disjointed posting in quite awhile.
Wonder what it said.

Pass the Dorito's

Councilor Medlock, you mentioned.....
"we have been giving the Mayor an opportunity to end this recall".........

How gracious of you! Hope he comes through, for all our sakes!! We are not really holding our breath on it, but, maybe our prayers will be answered and we can all get to the business of the city. This has gone on long enough (really, FAR TOO LONG!).

Now, Mr. Mayor, it is your turn......

Post Number 1 is rambling and distorted.

It's either a non-native English-challenged post-graduate student here abouts practicing his/her English.


It's the MAYOR disguising himself as a non-native English-challenged post-graduate student.

And, thanks for posting parts of the Tribunal. I don't live in the affected Recall Districts, so I haven't seen a copy yet.

The Tribunal really picked the right name. It is really rather like an extra-judicial Inquisition, lacking any balance or semblance for a local political checks-and-balances system.

Whew, what a horrible screed! Definitely bound for future bird cage floor covering.

Keep up the good work, Mr. Medlock (and Mr. Mautino).

Indeed, THANK YOU, for taking the time to post the copy of "The Tulsa Tribunal"......for those of us, not in District 2 or 6.

Still seems illegal to use the State and City Logos along with the title of the flyer! Does that mean we all can use those anytime we want, for any reason, 'cause we live in Tulsa?? Doesn't the City of Tulsa and State of Oklahoma legal departments have a responsibility to monitor this sort of thing??

Chris, Thank you (and Jim, Jack and Rosco) for standing up for what's right. We moved away from Tulsa in '88, due to an economic downturn in Tulsa, and returned in 2000. My first reaction upon returning was "everything in Tulsa has gone to hell in a handbasket". We so desperately need a change of charter. We again need a street commissioner, who will be held accountable for the condition of the streets. I could have told you, without knowing the political party of the then mayor, what the mayor's party affiliation was. I did support our current mayor during his election, but will not make the same mistake twice. Unfortunately, I am in Bill Christianson's district, but he's less useful than the mayor, as far as I'm concerned. I so appreciate you representing all the citizens of Tulsa, not just those in your district. I feel much better represented by you than my current city councilor. I am sorry you and Jim are experiencing the distractions of the recall, but please, don't give up. You have mine and my family's support.
