Even with it’s twisted pretzel logic, MPT Marick’s mea culpa following “Matters” last Tuesday confirmed a pattern of Murdock supporters intimidating Brea businesspeople to remove opposition’s signs and their practice of late night sign vandalizing across the city.
Citing content as the issue, that it was slanderous and in poor taste, Marick completely overlooked the accuracy of much of their content, which eliminates the slander charge, and the sign maker’s right to express their opinion unencumbered by subjective judgment.
Combine what we now know about Marick with Murdock’s 2010 campaign founded on empty rhetoric leading to four years of no promises kept and nothing of note accomplished…
and his 2012 clandestine opposition to Measures T and U which resulted in a $2,000 fine from the FPPC for election law violation… and you get quintessential dirty politics.
Murdock and Marick must harbor pretty low opinions of the people they serve.
Do they think we don’t see through the asinine answers they give to serious questions, the preposterous claims of major accomplishments they pile on their political resumes?
Do they think their whimpering and whining will mask the fact that they, at minimum, have as much mud on their hands as they claim fouls the hands of their opposition?
Mr. Murdock, Mrs. Marick… that sound you hear isn’t fracking in our hillsides, the shrinking of our pension liabilities or cactus growing in the Civic Center Garden. It’s the chip, chip, chip of the epitaphs being chiseled into your political headstones.
