Great seeing everyone at Drinking Liberally last night.Ã‚Â It was a wonderful send off for Mike Lawson who will be missed.
We had a great time discussing our debates with our friends on the right.Ã‚Â I have the final say in two different posts here, both of which end with a question and some folks asked if I got a response.Ã‚Â The answer is no, so I’ll post the questions again.
There was a question for Rep. Chuck DeVore on whether or not he’s planning to accept the $3K salary increase for state legislators or if he plans to give the money to charity as State Senator Lou Correa has done.Ã‚Â Care to answer Chuck?Ã‚Â What about the rest of the OC Delegration, Republicans and Democrats alike?Ã‚Â
The second question was one of disclosure.Ã‚Â Say what you will about Matt Cunningham, but the guy does disclose when he is blogging or commenting on an issue he is also involved with as a consultant.Ã‚Â Very ethical of you Matt.Ã‚Â I posted a question to himÃ‚Â about a post on Red County from Jon Flieschman in regards to a Scott Baugh/CRC Health Services/PO’d Republicans in NPB.Ã‚Â A commenter suggested that Jon Fleischman was a “paid mouthpiece” for CRC as well, something not disclosed in the original post.Ã‚Â I asked Matt, online, if it was true and, with no answer, the post moved along.Ã‚Â But still, as Red County is Matt’s blog, there’s a measure of accountability in disclosure of a fact.Ã‚Â
So the answer is yes Jon is a paid mouthpeace; no he’s not; or, I don’t know (but plan to ask him).
