Who knew that a shit storm would blow in after posting Mike DeFusco's invitation this morning! I'll get to that shortly.
Mike's invitation has been updated as follows:
Back to said shit storm.
So, I took my 14 year-old daughter to the Museum of Art and Design today. We were enjoying an exhibit called Crochet Coral Reefs: Toxic Seas when my phone rang. I texted back, "I'm at a museum in NYC. Text me if its important."
17 texts followed, which included the following sentiments :
"Ravi has been having fundraisers for years, your hatchet job on Mike was wrong... Ravi is trying to sabotage Mike's now.. isn't that who sent you this invite... Ravi is having an event that night... You're buying the Bhalla bs...You must have been asked to make up for yesterday's post... enjoy the tank..."
Was all that really "important?" Not to me.

What is interesting is the nerve that GA touched by posting Mike's invitation.
Like I ruined a surprise (?)
Posting DeFusco's invitation was not a "hatchet job." A political insider who would call it a "hatchet job" is curious indeed. It seems to me that such tirades are supposed to intimidate or bully one into writing what the texting-tyrant WANTS written.
Not happening. If you don't like the opinions expressed here, then SHOO.
First Ward Councilman DeFusco's term ends on December 31, 2019.
Hmm, so that leaves 1,057 days left in his term after the February 7th fundraiser.
Then of course, Mayor Dawn Zimmer's term expires on December 31, 2017, which leaves 327 days left in Defusco's term after his February 7th fundraiser.
What does it all mean?
Well, it never hurts to build a giant campaign warchest. It's smart, actually. But... it's early to a fundraise for a 2019 election, isn't it?
One month ago, Mike told GA he was not running for mayor ( I'd asked, "When are you running for mayor?")
This is a quote: "Mayor would be a significant pay cut and I'm enjoying my advocacy on the council."
Whatever you say, Councilman!
