MADDEN SCHOOLS OPPONENTS
Democrat Pat Madden took a few hits at the mayoral debate from both his opponents, Republican Jim Gordon and WFP candidate Rodney Wiltshire. The topic: TRIP finances. Madden, of course, is the top dog at the Troy Rehabilitation and Improvement Program. A cursory glance at some TRIP financials shows a the not-for-profit running a deficit. Madden's opponents took the opportunity to pounce on this fact. However, here, Madden explains how to read such numbers. Hopefully, in the event of a Gordon or Wiltshire victory, Madden will be available at budget time.
This is why you always look into an attack line before using it.
Of course, TRIP can't be run too poorly. The Gordon campaign has used campaign funds to donate to the organization.

We are tired of saying 911 Tape, Gordon 911 Tape...We have settled on "Domestigate", a word we hope encapsulates the call, the illegal release of the call, the contradiction between Gordon's version and the call and the ongoing investigation. As Domestigate continues, a thought occurred to us. If the recording was copied via a phone, why wasn't it copied as a simple audio file? Why does it look like it was filmed in order to capture the audio? Does this reflect the age of the individual(s). Over fifty, perhaps? Also, if we were doing it, we'd plan ahead and use a spouse's phone or the friend's phone. Just sayin'.
