My wife Sheri just returned home from picking up our two youngest children from Day Care. On the way, she happened to stop at the light on the corner of Spy Run and State St. She saw a small group of Kelty supporters chanting away on the corner near the old Kroger store. Once they noticed the Henry sticker on the back of the car, they became belligerent and started screaming at Sheri, sticking their signs in front of the car and Sheri actually felt threatened. Not only that, they scared our special needs son, Dustin with their actions. Sheri recognized Glenna Jehl, because they attend church together and rolled down the window and screamed Glenna's name. Once she was sure Glenna was looking, Sheri told Glenna she should be ashamed of herself for the way she and the others were acting.
Another woman who works with Sheri is the wife of a youth pastor at a local church. After speaking with some Henry supporters, he agreed to allow a "Henry for Mayor" sign in the front yard. Right after the sign was put in, the pastor's neighbor came over, yanked the sign out of the ground and threw it into the street. The pastor looked at his neighbor and asked what gave him the right to come into his yard and do such a thing. The neighbor's sole answer was that the man was a pastor and he didn't believe a Christian should be voting for "that man".
What in the hell is wrong with these people? What makes them think they are above the law? The only thing I can think of is that they are emulating the actions of their figurehead. If Kelty can lie about campaign contributions, then they can obstruct traffic on Spy Run. If Kelty can put up an illegal sign, then they can act threatening toward Henry supporters. If Kelty can lie and claim to know nothing about a cake he was already photographed with, then they have the right to take stuff from someone else's property.
Are these the kind of people you want to be associated with? Is their figurehead the kind of man we want to run our city?
Nah! I didn't think so.
