Keith Gross Fires Back…Sort Of

HD-80 candidate Keith Gross (D-Everywhere) has responded to critics regarding recent questions concerning his residency, as the Dunwoody Crier reports.

[UPDATE: 23 May 2008] H/T to Decaturguy who, in comments, makes note of an article in today’s Southern Voice where Gross is now refusing to release any additional information about his experience, including his resume.

“He is adamant about not releasing a resume, not just to you but anyone,” Steve Acuna, Gross’ campaign manager, said after repeated requests for a list of the companies Gross has owned or for which he has worked. “Keith was concerned about his safety, and he didn’t want people coming and knocking on his door. There’s already been some of people knocking on doors trying to find him,” Acuna said.

What does releasing a resume of past experience have to do with your current personal safety? More important, how do you expect to win an election for public office if you won’t talk to people?

    The Southern Voice reports today that Gross will not release his resume or give any more information as to the businesses he has owned because he is “concerned about his safety, and he didn’t want people coming and knocking on his door. There’s already been some of people knocking on doors trying to find him.”

    Then maybe you shouldn’t run for office.

    There is something really odd about Keith Gross, isn’t there?

    “Keith was concerned about his safety, and he didn’t want people coming and knocking on his door. There’s already been some of people knocking on doors trying to find him.”

    Is he concerned about voters knocking on his door or was one of his past business partners Tony Soprano?

    With 0% of the precincts reporting CNN is calling this election for Mike Jacobs. We tried to exit poll Mr. Gross, but he just ran away in fear.

    I have a feeling he’s lives in a slightly delusional world. He knows, at least on a subconcious level, that a spotlight on his “resume” will make it hard for him to reconcile his Donald Trump, titan of industry self-image.

    I found it a little suspicious that a millionare wheeler dealer, who started buying and selling businesses at the age of 14, was now a realtor at some no-name agency.

    Didn’t I tell you guys that Keith Gross was an amateur? Not willing to show his resume? Democrats should be embarrassed to have a candidate like this. Even if all the accusations are false, the idea that he isn’t willing to show his resume is farcical. Isn’t it obvious that this guy is just trying to buy the seat? Other than his money, what exactly does he have to offer?

    People can knock on his doors all that they want. Don’t his filing papers have his address as well as the voter roll?

    In the immortal words of Queen. Another one bites the dust.
