REX BOHN: Liar
OMG, Rex! Haha! You exemplify the term “mealy-mouthed” in this post on the North Coast Journal blog about your two-faced campaign tactics.
We called Bohn earlier today after seeing the top mailer [here] over at the Humboldt Herald blog. He claimed not to know what the Humboldt Herald is and said he couldn’t comment on the mailer because he hadn’t seen it. We offered to email him a link to the image. He said to send it to his campaign email address but warned he wouldn’t be able to look at it until “after 4:30 or 5 because I’m at work.”
We offered to send it to a work email. “I don’t use it,” he said. Then, “It’s for work only.”
He again said he couldn’t comment on the mailer because he couldn’t see it. Then he said, “I’m leaving here about 4 and I’m gonna go walk until about 5:30, 6 or 6:30.”
We offered to send him a link while on the phone. “Well I don’t work — pretty much — in an office. I’m out in the field mainly. I’m actually out in the yard on a piece of equipment right now.”
We offered to describe the mailer to him and then did so, mentioning the full slate of Democratic endorsements with his name in the middle of the flier. We read the phrase beneath his name: “Rex Bohn the Best Call! For ensuring jobs, public safety and preservation of the beautiful north coast environment.”
“Hmm, good statement,” Bohn said. But he still didn’t know whether or not the mailer came from his campaign, as it clearly stated. “I can’t say if it’s mine or not. I don’t know.”
After learning of the other mailers, we sent Bohn an email and left two message on his cell phone. We’ll update this post with his response, once we hear back.
Apparently Rex has so much money that he doesn’t know where it’s being spent, or that it’s being spent in a way to fool voters that he’s in line with the Democratic Party. He also can’t check his email or answer questions about apparently dirty behavior by his campaign.
Just like Rex didn’t know who was behind the shadow group who put up full-sized billboards for his failed campaign for Eureka City Council in 2004.
Integrity is not Rex’s middle name, nor a platform for the $80,000/year job for which he wants your vote.
