Since it’s Friday I didn’t check my email until just now. I see that I missed a note asking me to elaborate on the RPI ED thing by creating some sort of pop quiz for Mr. Anderson. Since I didn’t really have the time, I thought I’d just pass along the email that was sent to me.
To continue your post from yesterday, might I suggest a blog post idea for today?
I worked around Jim Anderson during the 2008 Victory effort here in Iowa. Jim is nice guy to have a beer with but is laughable at best for that position let alone RPI ED.
One thing that stuck out to me was that he never really left Polk County unless there was a visit by Palin or McCain.
So, on the eve of the SCC voting to confirm Jim as our next ED, it might be appropriate to give him a Krusty Pop Kuiz.
You could list a series of pictures of Iowa landmarks and ask him to state what it is or where it is located. (I’m guessing he will have trouble with this).
You could also intermix a few pictures of Polk County establishments that I know he is well aware of…Local bars and, of course, Prairie Meadows. I know for a fact that he frequented this joint quite often.
Krusty, there is too much at stake for an out of town beer buddy of Strawn’s to come in an take the reigns at RPI. Jim is just not ready for the job and I’m guessing with your spin on this Kuiz it will further illustrate this point.
Take this idea and run with it as your own. I don’t care, I just don’t want Bar Buddy Jim to be the next ED.
I just had another reader email me and say that apparently some Victory staff had a run in with the law at Prairie Meadows on Election Night 2008. Iowa Courts on-line shows that Garrett Payne, the Director of the Ames Victory office and subordinate of Anderson, was arrested at Prairie Meadows on Election Night 2008 for Public Intox and Disorderly Conduct.
GARRETT EDMUND PAYNE
PLED GUILTY TO PUBLIC INTOX
PLED GUILTY TO DISORDERLY CONDUCT
1 DAY JAIL W/ 1 DAY CREDIT TIME SERVED
Payne still owes $25 in court costs.
