Democrats Pray For An End To Learning Curve
Salt Lake County Democratic Chairperson Megan Risbon has had a rocky start. Her inaugural effort was the ill- advised endorsement of a candidate in a non- affiliated municipal race. Her man, Derek Dyer, brought home 74 votes in a district with 16219 registered voters, a majority of whom are Democrats. The county party still doesn't have a website. She was severely and publicly criticized by Mayor Rocky Anderson for involving herself in the Italy expense scandal: "I have a hard time understanding why she's even involving herself in this. She knows nothing about the facts or the issue" She was recently humiliated on KCPW (you can listen here) by Republican counterpart James Evans. When she was asked for evidence to back her press- release claim that Evans voted against ethics reform, she could provide none but promised to "do some research". Evans then proceeded to mention he had supported the ethics reform of Representative Ralph Becker, a Democrat.
