Because there are only a few democrats running in the primary, I would guess there will a lot of crossover voting.  This crossover voting could determine if Dennis Milligan stays in office. hmmmmm

I normally vote on the Democratic ticket, but this time I am going to crossover and cast a ballot in the Republican primary.  Many of my friends and professional associates plan to do the same. 

I crossover, have for years and will continue to crossover.  In the county/city elections I wish there was no stated party affiliate. 

Yeah, and with the possible exception of my friend Yvonne, I know what the majority of crossovers are going to be doing and why.  The question is: (1) Is there enough of you out there to take down Dennis Milligan and (2) what will it cost the Democratic office holders with challengers this year who, without Democrat stalwart voters, will likely lose their elections?

Food for thought.  Before any of you vote, be sure and check out the latest installment (and the first real substantive one) of The Dennis Milligan Factual Clearinghouse blog.  I'm dropping bombs tomorrow, for the sake of the naysayers who thought this was an empty promise.  The evidence I will be receiving by 9 p.m. will completely deconstruct the worst of the false charges made against this man, and will also severely impact the credibility of Circuit Court Judge Grisham Phllips' rant in the Sunday Courier, which was riddled with falsehoods, misstatements, inaccuracies and hopelessly faulty judgments.

Mr. Milligan, to put it mildly, is not the monster he has been made out to be and at last, I will be able to conclusively prove this.  Once you've caught someone in a single lie, you tend to catch them in multiple lies, and as the lies pile up, so does the wall around their crediblity.

This will be a bitter lesson for a lot of people in Saline County, and for some, a moment of profound shame.  Decent people feel such shame when they realize that they were wrong, and that they were lured into a lynch mob mentality.  The evidence is incontrovertible, so much so that the opposition attempted unsuccessfully to block it from release.

But it will be a lesson that Saline County needs to learn, not only from this incident, but for the future of elective offices in the coming century. 

Postscript to Von: Care to share what has you feeling so strongly that you're going to actually walk into a voting booth marked "R"?  I never thought you'd do that.  Are you among those buying into the Milligan scripted, manufactured controversies?  If so, my upcoming blog will be an eye-opener for you.

Ricky, You might be putting too much importance into one race.  You do realize there are many republican races going on in this county and country.  (I know president has already been chosen, even though we haven't voted yet.)  I registered as Democrat at 18 years of age, I'm now 57 and have never voted just one party.  Please don't make assumptions about why people crossover, you have enough on your plate without jumping to more conclusions. 

(Dennis, hope you are reading this.  This is what I was talking about when I told you your advocates are not always helping you.)

What Mr. Tripp is obliquely referring to is the hand-picked Democratic candidate for Assessor, Mr.
Steed. I'm sure if you looked closely at Mr. Steed's campaign finances, you'll find the fingerprints of Mr. Meyer's cabal. They're banking -- literally -- on Democrats not wanting to risk Jim Crawford losing his office so they wont cross over. Then Mr. Milligan, in their mind, would safely be esconced in the Circuit Clerk's office for two more years, planning his campaign for County Judge.

So if someone votes R in the primary, they must do the same in November? Is that what I'm hearing?

No. The November ballot has every candidate.

Not sure of RDTs logic here? Would Milligan not need all the R votes he can get to stay in that office?...even if the Democrats cross over to vote against him... there would not be the R votes for Mr. Steed crossing over. We all suspect hes a republican running as a democrat to help Mr. Milligan, but would a real democrat ever vote for him?? Or will R votes drop Milligans race just to put a R in the assesors office?? One of them are going to lose .... I personally hope both do.

No, Eric, the information I will be posting tomorrow and Thursday is going to clarify that the entire "controversy" surrounding Milligan was manufactured, massaged, and conspiratorily scripted over time to have the effect of discrediting him before he served a single day -- a pattern we certainly saw for a brief interlude with Bryant Mayor Jill Dabbs.

What you fail to understand is that with the election of these two, what Saline County experienced was the sidelining of an elite.  Those who served always came from it, were approved by it and were trusted not to touch the staff around them, who were entrenched and convinced of job security they were never entitled to.  When Dennis Milligan became the first Republican to win the Circuit Clerk's office since Reconstruction, all the rules didn't change.  They simply became enforced for the very first time.

And as those proofs are presented tomorrow and Thursday, the unfortunate timing of the editorial comments of Circuit Court Judge Grisham Phillips will become crystal clear, comments that tie him to this social website and to libelous material posted here.  He did it, no one else did it to him, and I will simply point out what the average person wasting the time to read either one might never otherwise see.

Problems for this judge lie ahead, along with others connected to the manufactured, staged controversy.  There is at least one additional huge revelation coming as well, one that establishes what appears to be a deeply disturbed pattern within the previous administration of the office of Circuit Clerk.

These are no small matters, and believe me when I tell you -- this is no bluff.  I am simply your intrepid reporter, and the information I will be providing is a matter of public record for the first time.  Without question, it will settle all arguments over the rights, intents, conduct and integrity of the Circuit Clerk, although he will continue to have unthinking, uninformed, hopelessly partisan critics who will continue to insist that he is some form of monster.

The upcoming Clearinghouse blog will settle all issues, permanently, regarding the non-selection of all former employees, within the full confines of the law, and reveal solid proof that not only have mine and Milligan's assertions been correct throughout, but the people involved, including the attorney who has represented them, knew all along that their versions of events were flawed.  The failure of their attorney to know what I will present, if alleged, can only point to concealment by his clients, or incomplete research on his part.

But one thing will be clear to all of Saline County -- Dennis Milligan has been wrongly accused and unfairly criticized and savaged for what were clearly legal, justifiable and ethical acts that have only one negative possible assessment -- they made some people angry who incorrectly believed they were entitled to a job.

In other words -- he bucked the Tribe, the elite, the good old boys, the clique, the old timers.  Change came hard to those who had never experienced it before, but now the rules will be clear.  Forever. 

And if you were basing your vote against Milligan on any of it -- you'll have new reasons to think it over when I'm done reporting.  And if you participated in the bashing -- you'll have a reason to be ashamed of yourself and think twice before buying into such stories again.  Dennis has already forgiven you.  That is the kind of man he is.

The Saline Courier 12/29/10

Circuit Clerk Dennis Milligan has terminated four people from the clerk's office before he has officially started his term, The Saline Courier has learned. Another person was also dismissed from her duties, but she had already planned on leaving the office this week because of retirement.

"This is nothing different than a new governor taking over," Milligan told The Saline Courier on Tuesday afternoon.

Milligan said he did not meet with the people he dismissed.

When asked about the experience of the replacements who will be coming to work in the clerk's office, Milligan told the Courier, "they technically do not have experience in a clerk's office ...."
 
Cronyism
 
(krō'nē-ĭz'əm) pronunciation n.
Favoritism shown to old friends without regard for their qualifications, as in political appointments to office.



I have never voted party  & wont start this year either.  I watch all candidates & LISTEN to what THEY say not what is being said by others.  Sometime past service is helpful, sometimes it hinders, We shall see.


Good God, if you have this proof Ricky, bring it out, Stop all the sensationalism, it's getting old QUICK.
