Bill Bunting’s lies

Anyone who knows me or reads my columns with any frequency knows I am no Charlie Crist fan. I first publicly expressed my disdain for Charlie in a column in February 2009 — long before it was cool, and before I had a convenient option to go with someone else — as Bunting did.

In desperate move, Bunting pats self on back and tells some whoppers. Former union thug makes up charges because the facts aren’t on his side.

In today’s Tampa Tribune, Pasco’s resident-bully Bill Bunting makes a number of claims in a letter to the editor in response to my column about the N.R.A.’s endorsement of his opponent, Steve Simon for Pasco state committeeman to the Republican Party of Florida.

Bunting’s diatribe is full of a bunch of self-congratulatory nonsense, and I expect voters in Pasco County who know Bunting will be rejecting him this Tuesday in his re-election campaign for GOP committeeman.  I’m guessing Bunting knows this too.

Bunting gets “Hammered”

In Pasco County, incumbent RPOF state committeeman Bill Bunting faces Steve Simon. The race is getting far more media attention than one of these down-ballot party positions normally receive due to an unlikely occurrence.

With so many high-profile contested races on the GOP primary ballot, local Republicans may have a hard time figuring out whom to vote for in the lower-profile races that generally don’t get much money or media attention.

Among those, way down on the ballot, Republicans in every Florida county have the opportunity to vote for two state committee members who will represent their county in the Republican Party of Florida. The position carries no government authority and is unpaid.

If your ballot is similar to mine, the state committee position may be on the back page of the ballot, and if you don’t know to look for it, you might miss it.

The position of state committeeman is important in as much as Continue reading “Bunting gets “Hammered””

Irreverent View ballot recommendations

Irreverent View strongly and enthusiastically recommends Dave Weldon for U.S. Senate. Unfortunately, I expect Cornellius’s silver spoon will continue to bring him undeserved fame and decision-making authority he is not fit to hold.

Tampa-area ballot recommendations

A little late, but better than never, Irreverent View’s 2012 Primary Ballot recommendations are out.  These recommendations cover all Hillsborough and a few Pinellas and Pasco county races that cross county lines, plus U.S. House and Senate races.  In most cases recommendations are for Republican Primary races. This is because the Democrats are even worse than the Republicans at recruiting candidates, and there are few contested Democrat races.

For some races, in addition to my recommendations, I have also included who I think will win and why.

Please feel free to share with friends and family, print out and take to the polls, or just delete them and flip a coin. Whatever you do, don’t forget to vote! Continue reading “Irreverent View ballot recommendations”

Local Republicans have say in state GOP leadership races

Steve Simon and Hoe Brown represent an opportunity for some fresh voices, new ideas, and people with real-world experience to serve on the much maligned Republican Party of Florida’s state committee.
