SV411 Continues To Lose Credibility

Today awoke from it's two week slumber to continue it's quixotic quest to bring down Cindy Chavez. Say what you will about our site - but at least we're up-to-date!

SV411 - an anonymous blog that attacked us for being anonymous - revealed that the Metro has endorsed Chuck Reed. (Surprise!) Then, later in the day, the blog picked up the story about Chavez receiving donations from developers who bid for contracts. The article parroted Reed's accusations without any examination or scrutiny thereof. One portion of such allegations was that a developer from Connecticut "got" seven individuals to contribute to Chavez. These are very serious allegations. But as we mentioned in our earlier article, Reed's campaign is filled with parallel arrangements that also smell like big interested donors (like Dennis Fong) "got" office managers and relatives to max out in their donations to Reed.

This is the blog that:

1) Went after Nancy Pyle, Ken Yeager, etc. for freeloading at the Grand Prix but never outlined any of the luxurious events Reed attended on the public's dime;

2) Found that the only thing that was relevant from the Norcal Grand Jury transcripts was that Cindy referred to representatives from Norcal by common names, but found nothing improper about Reed's undisclosed conversations with CWS prior to the Norcal vote;

3) Announced the endorsements of Chuck by a handful of local leaders while not once blogging about the pantheon of prestigious endorsers of Cindy;

4) Referred to Chuck's ripoff of $38K from the public's money as "creative juggling of 'job-related' expenses" and a "minor misstep".

At least our site is honest about the fact that we editorialize. At least our site doesn't pretend to be anything but the rants of a couple of young students.

It's over!

No one leaves posts on your site because the race is done (see http://cbs5.com/topstories/local_story_290150806.html)

Good news, the electorate knows something. Restore the Pride with Reed!

back when i was a kid, my brother and i played this game. we collected all the cow dung and hurled it against our barnyard wall and see whose fell slower. it was quite an exciting game...for 8 year olds.

someone needs to tell chuck to stop playing this game. all he's doing is throwing bullshit and hoping that it sticks.

Pretty pathetic, Mr. "Restore the Pride"

The headline of the link you provided says that Chavez is closing the gap.

You really trust poll numbers these days when only 1.5 weeks ago they indicated that both candidates are within the margin of errors? Fine, go ahead and sit back on your laurels, buddy.

I love your repeat posts. Pathetic.

People who are persuaded by polls are sheep. Keep herding...

What I don't get is...

Didn't Chuck vote against Eminent Domain of Tropicana?

Then he received money from Rich de la Rosa + friends as well as D. Fong + friends.

How is this any different from what Cindy allegedly did?

Anonymous...please continue thinking it is over....funny thing is that the election hasn't happened yet, and three weeks is a very long time in politics.

That poll? Out of 1,000 calls, only 700 were registered voters, and of that only 500 were likely voters, not a good indication of what will happen in November.

There is no doubt in my mind that our city will be best served by Cindy Chavez, as she is really the best person for the job.

This site like the chavez campaign is dead. where's the biased writeup of last night's debate I attended?

Reed owns chavez when the discussion is about real issues. Chavez is out of her element discussing planning, fees, transportation, the arts, etc. Reed showed a smooth delivery, knowledge, and just Chavez behind the woodshed and beat her good, real good.

Obviously the best alterntaive and the future mayor. Long live Reed! Restore the Pride in '06 babay!
