Tuesday, Aug. 22, 2006 | Reporter Evan McLaughlin backtracks in the record to show how truth-teller Diann Shipione has triumphed after taking a beating at the hands of our self-serving pols and their paid hatchet man, John Kern. That no allegation was left unstated is how the brutal game is played.
Politics is a blood sport and no reputation survives unsullied by rumors, distortions and half-truths. Men or women who seriously question the political status quo In San Diego are frequently labeled by innuendo or editorial as contentious, unstable or egotistical by their enemies. Sometimes it works. Fortunately, sometimes it doesn’t. Thank you, Evan McLaughlin, for a good story.
