Detroit CouncilPerson Puts Teh Onion Out of Business

[Guest post by JD]

It was stupid and racist to point out that the Left promises gifts to their constituents, and likely stupid and racist for highliting a Dem demanding exactly that.

Meet CouncilPerson JoAnn Watson

  1. Racists

  2. She was probably an avid supporter of Kwame the Felon.

  3. She actually used the term “quid pro quo”, which is the ever-so-hard-to-prove definition of bribery. The reason it’s so hard to convict people of bribery is that they always insist there was no quid pro quo, and the evidence that they’re lying is often circumstantial; here she actually calls it that herself! She probably doesn’t even realise the legal implication.

  4. Milhouse, I’m sure Eric Holder will be all over it.

    All over, that is, that racist Republican who’s the Michigan AG looks into it.

  5. Cleveland has it’s Obamaphones, Detroit wants something too.

    Nice legal point, Milhouse, at least this non-lawyer among us didn’t realize that,
    but, between being honest and using legal technicalities to weasel out of something, I pick being honest.

    If found guilty of any crime the punishment should be community service in the form of a truthful public service announcement.

  6. MD, if you put as a condition of her probation anything related to truth you’re just setting the hag up to fail. Best just to give her time in the lock-up.

  7. But Steve, she already has it down

  8. If she wanted something good she should have voted for Romney because he’s rich rich rich and could have given her gift cards to Target or Radio Shack.

  9. I think she was on Pawn Wars, pawning a crack pipe.

  10. You’re racist because she’s black. Don’t think about it too much, and it’ll make sense.

  11. You got a bailout, already, GM is alive, Bin Laden is dead, remember,

  12. Maybe she’s the “Obamaphone” lady’s sister or something.

  13. Yeah, Mitt Romney should have waited until AFTER this Detroit City Councilwoman claimed Obama owes her and her constituents some bags of goodies, before he asserted that Obama promised his supporters some bags of goodies.

  15. “After the election of Jimmy Carter, the honorable Coleman Alexander Young, he went to Washington, D.C. He came home with some bacon,” said Watson. “That’s what you do.”

    Judging from the picture, you ATE all the bacon, Bitch!

    What, something along the lines of:

    “I wish the residents of this city to know that I am one DAMNED stupid ho! And I’m fat, too!”

    ?????

  17. What this woman says is exactly correct. they do what they have to in order to get their guy elected and then he is supposed to come through with the SWAG. Her only problem is that she is too honest, you aren’t supposed to admit this is how it works to the great unwashed.

  18. Detroit city council member JoAnn Watson’s property taxes: $68

    DETROIT — A Detroit City Council member who paid $68 in property taxes this year because city records indicate her home doesn’t exist, said she thought damage caused by a tornado was the reason her bill was so low.

    But JoAnn Watson couldn’t recall exactly when the tornado struck her well-kept brick, Tudor-style home on the city’s west side, saying it might have been 1993 or 2002. She said she was unaware of a city records discrepancy that has for the past decade listed the parcel as an empty lot, despite the home occupying the plot since 1926.

    …”I’ve been a target of a smear campaign,” Watson told reporters gathered outside her home on Sunday.

    If the typical media pattern when confronting the possibility of a “minority” pol hip-deep in a potential scandal, they’ll let Joann Watson declare it a non-scandal, declare she’s ready to move on from it, and they’ll drop it.

    I do owe Doc in Philly an apology. I said making truth-telling a condition of probation was a bridge-too-far. It would be setting her up to fail.

    “I don’t smoke, I don’t drink and I don’t sleep around. It’s an election year. I’ll let you figure it out.”

    I’ve seen a picture of this woman; I believer her.

  19. I’ve seen a picture of this woman; I believe her.

    Me too, clearly, her own personal addiction involves bacon, not just pork.

    the possibility of a Democrat “minority” pol hip-deep in a potential scandal

    You missed a word there. Glad I could fix it fer ya.

    Clearly, any GOP minority involved in a “scandal” rates massive media attention.

    Of course, you could argue that you stop being a “minority” the instant you become a Republican.

    This WOULD explain how GOP minority enrollment never goes up.

  20. Miz Watson has two favorite things.
    Pot and pork belly.

    Dude, we all know if you’re a rethuglican you’re automatically an old white guy.

  22. Speaking of being in receivership:

    http://pjmedia.com/tatler/2012/12/08/california-a-basket-case/

    $25 Billion in arrears, looking to be $31 Billion by the end of next June.

    Corporate tax receipts 200% below budget, personal tax receipts 20% below budget, and spending 5% over budget.

    Buh bye.

  24. “Dude, we all know if you’re a rethuglican you’re automatically an old white guy.”

    Steve57 – White privilege, it’s out of control in Detroit.

    I condemn myself.

  25. At least MI has done some preparation for municipal failures.

    I can’t believe a number of cities will not find funding through bonds impossible come the end of their current fiscal year.

    States that are in deep do-do are going to see their munis downgraded, suprisingly OH is high on that list as are AL and MS.
