Shocking News About "Mayor" Dellums! Shocking!

Ron Dellums has ongoing IRS problems? He might back out early because of them? And he's going to Washington to become a lobbyist after this?

I am absolutely flabbergasted by all of this. What an unexpected turn of events. Especially for a man known for his dignity, dedication to transparency, and work ethic.

[End saying the opposite of truth for comedic effect]

Dellums articles always bring me out of my slumber. New news about old Ron is always fun. Especially the comments following them. Especially since I no longer live in Oakland and have to deal with the fallout.

Article from The Onion Accidentally Posted on the Chronicle

The title is "Oakland Mayor Ron Dellums To Decide on 2nd Run". It's really funny! And who knew the Onion followed Oakland politics! Quick, go see it before the editors realize they made a mistake and take it down.

I Had No Idea I Was So Popular

I came back to visit Oakland this week after a year away, and people are so excited at my return they're rioting! You like me, you really like me!

Poor taste? Certainly, but after a year away when you come back to this, and Nero Dellums shopping while Oakland burns, you can either laugh or cry. I wrote a little more about it here.
