Just an observation based on yesterday. When the St. Louis tea party was burning photos of Russ Carnahan outside his office, Mayor Slay's staff said nothing. When they carried a coffin to Russ Carnahan's home the night after healthcare reform passed, the Mayor's staff said nothing. When the tea party falsely accused two SEIU employees of "brutally beating" a guy in a parking lot, the Mayor's staff said nothing. When the local tea party edited video to falsely claim that an UMSL professor was "advocating violence in his classroom," the Mayor's staff said nothing.
But when President of the Board of Aldermen Lewis Reed works on a compromise with the Firefighters regarding their pensions, the Mayor's staff publicly attacks him on Twitter.
Does this make any sense?
