Regular readers know that Irvine isnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t really my thing.Ã‚Â Dan C. has that coveredÃ¢â‚¬â€but DanÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s in New York on business, so I thought I would post a quick observation regarding the Irvine Mayor race.
Duong released a statement yesterday (read it at OCBlog.net) where he claims to be upset over a mailer that claims that DuongÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s business is building strip-malls in Westminster that are in frequent violation of health, safety, and building codes.
Duong even threatens legal action against Beth Krom, but we all know that libel is pretty tough to prove when it comes to political free-speech.
And DuongÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s release is missing an important ingredient: a denial.Ã‚Â None of the facts of the mailer are questioned.Ã‚Â Just a bunch of Ã¢â‚¬Å“It ainÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t my jobÃ¢â‚¬Â bull.
YAWN!Ã‚Â Call me when thereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s some news out of that city.[DuongÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s press release on OC Blog]
