This guys beliefs has an interesting but common arc. When less affluent he supported progressive causes, voting rights for black men (not women), RFD program and other causes. It is unknown to me if these were his true beliefs or just another politician pandering to his constituents. As his wealth grew he turned more conservative (regressive) expounding anti antisemitism, anti catholic and demonstrated a true nativist bent. It appears his true nature and feelings were willfully exposed when he no longer feared for his elected position or his personal livelihood.

Again it is the Cities responsibility to enforce the rules they promulgated. Most city employees I meet are well meaning and ethical. But ultimately the resulting plan must be approved by them.
Does it really start at 4 AM?

THE TRUTH.. This is widely reported in all media. Less frothing by the NY Times than your friends at Fox. But these stories are always covered by the press.
Wesleywhatwhat.. They didn't target anyone. That is stated in error. The JD applied for and received a subpeona to investigate the leak of classified matters. This is legal and approved in the Patriot Act. Ill advised I agree but it seems legal.
Secondly the 501 C3 is a general welfare tax exempt status much abused by all. The funds cannot be used for partisan political purposes. The Tea Parties are anything but non partisan.
