If you enjoy Mark Turek’s propensity to cover his ears and yell “lalalalalalalalala!” then you’ve got to read this thread. John Chapman takes Mark to task for his random, irrelevant complaints about Democratic candidate for Governor John Richardson.
As background, please know that Mark used to work for Maine’s tourism department but was forced to resign for god knows what. I’d guess being a complete douchebag.
MARK: Mr. Richardson should be asked to explain his family and/or friendly relationship with a man named Jimmy Cook. In addition, taxpayers deserve to know why then-Commissioner Richardson appointed/shuffled Jimmy Cook through various good paying jobs within his Department (DECD).
JOHN CHAPMAN: Re Jimmy Cook, I’ve seen the links — seems he is VERY pro prganized labor, or at least WAS. [...] If Cook was guilty of misconduct – give us the details. If you believe he is simply an empty suit getting unwarranted $, I’ll grant you, that’d be tougher to show.
MARK: [About the] the hiring of Jimmy Cook [...] since you’re personal friends with Richardson, why don’t you explain to AMG how the two are related.
JOHN CHAPMAN: Because I have NO FRIKKIN IDEA if, or how, they ARE related !!!! That’s my point. I don’t think there IS ANY RELATIONSHIP, based on what you’ve posted. If you think hiring this guy Cook is bad, other than because he also had union jobs _ TELL US WHY!!! YOU are the one saying, in essence, “hiring Cook was VERY VERY BAD”.
MARK: One of my past co-workers told me that we had to hire Jimmy Cook into DECD because he was related to then-Commissioner Richardson. Although she didn’t give me specific details, it sounded like a related by marriage situation.
JOHN CHAPMAN: How would the issue of Richardson being “related to” a nonrelative be of any interest to anybody, anywhere?
And so we see yet another Mark Turek master plan torn apart and rolled into tiny little balls for the purpose of being chewed upon and shat out by facts, leaving Mark with only little steaming piles of fact poo. Excellent.
