Video: “Charlie Dooley’s Costly Merger”

October 15th, 2010 by sclemons · No Comments

Hat tip:corrigan4exec

Another Charlie Dooley flip flop has become fodder for the Bill Corrigan campaign. On a Monday, he tells the St. Louis Post Dispatch that chances for a merger with St. Louis City “are better than before.” Then on Wednesday, after his trial balloon crashed and burned in the court of public opinion, Dooley now says that the Post Dispatch “misrepresented his statements.” In a recent blog post, Post-Dispatch reporter Paul Hampel explained what actually happened.

“An item was published last month on the paper’s Political Fix blog stating that Dooley had told Post-Dispatch editorial writers and reporters that he favored such a merger.

“After Dooley read the item, he told me that he did, indeed, support a merger between the city and county, but objected to his support being characterized in the item as ‘a priority’ of his. After some debate, I agreed to remove the word ‘priority’ from the story.

“An edited version of the story ran that left intact Dooley’s repeated statements in favor of the merger.

“After the edited story ran, Dooley’s spokeswoman, Katy Jamboretz, called and left a message on my answering machine that stated: ‘Thank you very much. I just read the new version of the story and it is 100 percent accurate.’

“That blog item drew almost 300 comments from readers, the vast majority of them criticizing Dooley for his support of a merger.)”

  • 10 how to get baby to sleep through the night // May 7, 2014 at 8:27 am

    If they usually take a nap around 10 AM, start putting them down for their nap around
    9:30, that way they are not too tired, but they are tired enough to fall asleep.
    Many years ago expectant dads waited in a room ready for the
    news that their babies had been born. An e-mail alert will be sent to you,
    if the above techniques to get them back to sleep won’t work.

    Hello, I believe your site could be having web browser compatibility problems.
    Whenever I take a look at your site in Safari, it looks fine however,
    when opening in I.E., it has some overlapping issues.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Aside from that, excellent website!

    The story would be this time, as it was strongly emphasized Komoto
    as game management, should play a more significant role than was the case with Final fantasy XI,
    more oriented to pure leveliranje, gridanje and hack & slash questanje.
    Dre Studio has the Noise Reduction fuction, its sound quality couldn’t have been
    better than those products without that fuction.
    To retain any player as long as possible with a MMO game perhaps the most important element is the way, that the system progress of
