Getting the sympathy vote

Some people will do anything to get votes to stay in office.  Members of the Chicago City Council will go to extreme lengths to keep their over one hundred thousand dollar a year part time job.  But getting the sympathy vote is a new one.

22nd Ward Alderman Ricardo Munoz has “outed” himself as an alcoholic.  In a blatant appeal for sympathy, he claimed  the disease has devastated him, his family, his ability to do his part time Aldermanic job, blah, blah, blah.  Of course, all the Democrats are patting him on the back, saying good job.  They are such a tolerant and enabling group.  They have feelings.

This is nothing but a shameless ploy to garner sympathy.  How can anyone run a good campaign against a guy, who if put under stress will try to eat the worm in the bottom of a Tequila bottle.  Give us a break.  Sorry, no mercy and no pity.  If he is looking for sympathy, he should check the dictionary.  It is located between shot and syphilis.   

He has admitted his “disease’ has impacted his ability to do his job.  that is the only reason we need not to have him in office again.  He failed.  He should have resigned.  No second chances.

Instead, he is tugging on our heart strings.  What next, crying about his father, the convicted felon?  Democrats in Chicago will do anything to hold on to that part time job.  Even garner the sympathy vote.  He would have been better off outing himself as something else.
