    Why is this an issue?

    Is what Kai Frankling did wrong? Well, of course if the allegations prove to be true.

    How does this apply to politics or Shirley Franklin’s political positions? It doesn’t.

    It will reflect on Shirely to some degree. We’re humans; we all gossip. We need to let the Mayor know that she has our continued support and respect though. She’s a strong, tough lady, but extra encouragement and support at such a time is critical.

    It would be nice if the Dems had cut Bush/Cheney as much slack on Plamegate as you’re willing to give the mayor. Her perp fugitive son-in-law may have been living in her house during part of the period in question. And, she didn’t know how her daughter was/is living with no visible means of support?
