The droppings never stop…

Alliance for Florida fine
While skilled at back-slapping and carrying other people’s bags, apparently our little friend Michael Shifty, sorry, that’s Ciftci (aka: Squirrel Poop) has difficulty following instructions.
It seems to me Squirrel Poop was way out of his league when he was appointed to serve as Treasurer of the Alliance for Florida. He had some difficulty filing the proper reports the state of Florida requires of political committees.
The Florida Elections Commission fined the Alliance for Florida $1,650 for a late filing of the Alliance for Florida’s quarterly report. (Read the entire complaint and Squirrel Poop’s explanation by clicking here). Squirrel Poop admitted his screw-up and appealed the fine which the state later waived.
The fine being waived doesn’t change the fact that this guy shouldn’t be in charge of anything other than carrying somebody’s bags – and it didn’t clear him of wrong-doing.
Victor Crist shares the wealth with Squirrel Poop
Earlier this week I reported on the fact that Squirrel Poop had received the endorsement of Hillsborough County Commissioner Victor Crist. Crist you will recall used to be a state senator. One of his last acts as state senator was to insert the language into a bill that gave Florida taxpayers the $48 million Taj-Mahal courthouse in Tallahassee.
While Victor Crist is very quick to spend YOUR tax money without regard to anything but his own political survival, he’s kind of a cheap bastard when it comes to his own coin. As evident by his whopping $100 contribution to Squirrel Poop’s candidacy for Tampa City Council.
Way to put your money where your mouth is Victor!
One man for Squirrell Poop
Tampa Attorney Andy Graham wrote the following public comment on Irreverent View this morning:
Weak. I read your entire column twice and it consists of a lot of nothing. Ironic since Ciftci’s lack of substance is the gist of your criticism. It’s a hoot when you criticise Ciftci’s grammar and misspellings and then your sycophants-like Terry-chime in with grammatical and punctuation errors.
Hope you are doing well.
Here was my reply to Andy:
The world can rest now, knowing that Andy “Charlie Crist” Graham has spoken and cleared the air.
Thank you so much for your most meaningful input Andy!
Folks, Andy Graham and the people he supports in elections is exactly what is wrong with, and contributing to the demise of, our once great nation.
Andy has no problem with some clown like Ciftci serving in public office. Andy and those like him want someone who is no more qualified than Ciftci. Because someone like Ciftci fetching coffee isn’t a problem for Andy so long as he is helping pull the strings at Ciftci’s sit-ins or whatever other ridiculous stunts he proposes.
Andy thinks that’s just a lot of “nothing.”
Voters will decide.
p.s. Andy, it’s “criticize” not “criticise.”
It’s nice that Squirrel Poop has at least one supporter in Tampa. The phone calls and e-mails I have received about Squirrel Poop in the last few days were tracking at 100 percent against our little rodent feces friend – until Andy stepped up to the plate.
What a swell guy!
