Johnson County Supervisor and Chairman Rod Sullivan writes a weekly e-newsletter called "Sullivan's Salvos".
An e-newsletter in general is a nice communication piece and I wish more elected officials would use them. Sullivan's e-newsletter however leaves much to be desired. Sullivan seems to crank out misinformation on a routine basis.
I subscribed to Sullivan's newsletter some time ago, but ever since I started challenging him publicly on his stance regarding the Conservation Bond issue, I suddenly stopped receiving my weekly copy. How cowardly and gutless of Sullivan to remove me from his list. What's he afraid of, that I'll expose him for spewing crap?
In his November 8th issue, also available online, Sullivan wrote regarding the Conservation Bond issue: "The other campaign, known as “Flip No”, attempted to use all the best fear tactics of the Bush Presidency and the McCain campaign. Just as the nation as a whole rejected the politics of fear, the politics of hope won the day in Johnson County."
That's nothing but unsubstantiated partisan hack rhetoric. This issue wasn't about GOP vs. Democrat, it was about fiscal responsibility or the lack thereof. It was about want vs. need. It was about a vague idea vs. the lack of a real plan. And note the complete lack of an example by Sullivan. No substantive reference was provided to support his wild claims. This is what liberals do ladies and gentlemen, they put up fake arguments. They make outlandish assertions and wholly fail to back them up.
Sullivan continued with more liberal hack crap: "Flip No gave dire warnings of “30% tax increases” which in actuality are less than one percent. We were warned that “people will lose their houses”. If you think you are going to lose a $100,000 house because of a $1.10 per month tax increase, you have bigger problems than that tax increase! Flip No claimed the bond issue would hurt the local economy."
Again, no cited reference, no example, no names about who exactly said such things..... Just Sullivan typing out wild claims trying to paint the opposition as inherently evil.
Hey Sullivan, who exactly said there would be a 30% tax increase? Hey Sullivan, who with Flip No said somebody will lose their house as a direct result of the Conservation bond tax hike? The answer is nobody did. You can't/won't/didn't name names because you don't have any! You don't have a for instance!
More Sullivan crap from "Sullivan's Salvos": "Even more beyond the pale, several Flip No supporters personally attacked LWF Campaign Co-chair Dick Schwab. If there is a more kind, generous, selfless, thoughtful man in all of Johnson County, I’d like to meet him. Dick Schwab represents all that is good in our community. As I fully expected him to do, Dick turned the other cheek. When you spread lies about Dick Schwab, you have lost all your credibility with me."
Without question Dick Schwab has done some great work in this community. That's has been and was publicly acknowledged during the campaign. But questions were asked. People interested in the bond issue can't ask questions about land deals and the intent of the special interest group Schwab belongs to? Asking questions somehow parlays into personal attacks according to you Sullivan? So who specifically, personally attacked Dick Schwab Mr. Sullivan? What was said/written exactly? What were these supposed personal attacks? Why didn't you provide an example with a proper cite and reference if this claim were true?
This is a Johnson County Supervisor, a Chairman, an elected official - Rod Sullivan - just making stuff up folks. Oh that's right, he's a liberal Democrat.
