What’s the difference between a vicious animal and a conservative candidate?
Eureka City Councilwoman Melinda Ciarabellini, who is going door-to-door for Rex, took the mic and dropped a Q on the crowd. To paraphrase:
What’s the difference between a pit bull and Rex Bohn?
A: A pit bull will eventually let go.
We certainly saw the locked jaws Rex and co. during that loser of a lawsuit they took all the way to the California Supreme Court over the balloon track, which lost every step of the way.
Supervisor Virginia Bass, Current Sheriff Mike Downey and former Sheriff Gary Philp were there, and Downey said Bohn would help restore things Humboldt County lost, like jobs and “integrity.” He didn’t elaborate on that. Maybe he meant salmon and redwoods.
The same pit-bull question was popped to supporters at an Allison Jackson rally way back when. Popular imagery to a Republican crowd, perhaps.
The only other candidate so far is Annette De Modena. Deadline for other hats to fall in the ring is March 9th.
