Times Leader Does It Again
Law Suit Against Haggerty Has Nothing To Do With Senate Election
Sometimes it's difficult to write some of these blogs. Other times it's easy. And finally, sometimes we all just sit around and shake our heads. The shaking our heads usually comes after reading Dave Iseman and his editorial staff at the Times Leader. Well, the schizophrenic Wilkes-Barre daily has done it again. Here's today's lead editorial. Schizophrenic Daily's Editorial.
Haggerty said last week that the law suit against him over the police blotter was politically motivated and that its timing was meant to do him damage in the May 16th primary. Well, the Times Leader has debunked that.
"The election didn't have anything to do with the timing of our lawsuit. Our beef with Haggerty isn't anything new. We've been fighting with him about police blotter since November 2002. "
So, if this battle has been going on for 3 1/2 years, why didn't you sue him 3 1/2 years ago? Or maybe 2 1/2 years ago? Or maybe one year ago? Twenty days before the election! What were you waiting for --- your Biorhythms to be peaking, a fortune cookie that said "good day to file a law suit," or Mars and Venus to be in a synchronis orbit with the Earth? Your own editorial proves that your law suit was politically motivated. Believe it or not, we are not that stupid.
I guess it is much easier if you don't think when you read the Times Leader.
