Friday, July 11, 2008 | Lepine’s support of Michael Aguirre for City Attorney says it all about what is wrong with the City of San Diego, and local politicians.
For Lepine to support a local candidate for public office based only on their political affiliation is a joke. The local city offices are supposed to be non-partisan. Her switch is even more bizarre when you take into consideration the fact she was suing Michael Aguirre for some very humiliating and debasing activity.
My questions to Ms. Lepine now are: Were all of the allegations you made against against Mr. Aguirre false? If the allegations were true, do you want Mr. Aguirre to remain City Attorney, because the misconduct you alleged in your suit is now acceptable for a City Attorney? Was your change of heart based on the fact that the “New Clinton Democrats” believe that elected officials are exempt from any moral or ethical standards of conduct?
I hope someone will answer my questions? Politicians at every level are truly a joke, including former candidates.
