Jon Elrod Takes Ed Coleman to Task
December 7, 2010 10 Comments
This morning we received a tip on some Facebook Fun from last night. It seems Jon Elrod, former State Representative, had enough of Ed Coleman’s hypocrisy and turned the frustration into a Facebook note.
Coleman, an at-large councilor elected as a Republican, changed Party affiliations to be a Libertarian. This week, Coleman was featured in a press release from the Libertarian Party saying,
“When I ran as part of the 2007 GOP campaign team, it was because I and other small government advocates believed Greg Ballard’s promise to reform government and reduce the spending. It was broken promises like this that prompted me to abandon the failed Republican Party and its bloated-government policies.”
Elrod responded in a Facebook note saying,
“Broken promises? How about running as a Republican and serving as a Libertarian? Or did Mayor Ballard break your heart so much that you questioned your entire political affiliation?
As one of thousands of Republican volunteers, donors, and voters, who helped elect Ed Coleman, pardon me if I ignore his advice on broken promises.
Ed, that failed Republican Party actually got you elected. Let me know when that successful Libertarian Party makes that happen for you (or anyone).
As they say in the Nike commercials, BOOM.
