A meeting was held earlier today with several donors and community members within San Diego City Council District 7. The purpose of the gathering was to determine whether or not to move forward with a recall of the increasingly embarrassing Councilwoman Marti Emerald. Consensus was that she cannot survive a recall in a non-Obama tidal wave election. A larger group will be meeting this week.
Since the MSM has been covering Emerald’s trials and tribulations in front of the Ethics Commission, I haven’t felt the need to do so. But reading the news I’ve been thinking that Marti has to be asking herself “Is this what I signed up for?” In the last two years she’s gone from being a beloved San Diego institution, to most observers thinking that perhaps she belongs in an institution. I’m thinking from her weeping at the Ethics Commission that maybe she is starting to get it: this isn’t going to end. This isn’t even the best of the ethics complaints. Is this really how you want to spend the next few years, Marti?
