French philosopher Joseph Marie told us two hundred years ago that, in a democracy, ‘people get the government they deserve.’ But we can’t believe that anyone could deserve the leadership of the allegedly murderous, corrupt ex-cop Russell Perdock – amazingly, running for local government.
You may remember Perdock as the cop behind the most bizarre and controversial case to ever go to trial in Lake County; a case that inspired thousands of SA’ers to stand up for the rights of Bismarck Dinius, the sailor nearly sent to prison for the death of sailboat crew Lynn Thornton. After a major effort from the media and local sailors, the truth came out and Dinius was acquitted, but not before the world learned that it was Perdock’s excessive speed, incompetence, and possibly inebriation that caused the death of an innocent woman.
There’s more info on the Dinius vs. Perdock saga here, and you can go here to see this piece of shit’s campaign website, but here’s what is important: If you are in Clear Lake or anywhere near Lake County, please make sure you vote for anyone besides this guy. And while you’re at it, send this story around to your neighbors and friends. Here’s the permalink.
