I Prayed These Two Would Never Darken My Door Again

Received this email today from Mark Towner: "I post a simply reply to your 97.5 revelation and from nowhere I am flamed by Mike Ridgway or his supporters. I respectfully request you remove this messages posted by likely Mike Ridgway. I did not post this, please remove this and any other references to me." I don't moderate comments. You can't hide behind a restraining order, and use the Internet to bait and slander your personal political enemy then try to hurry and delete everything. (by 'everything' I mean comments on SLCSpin and multiple posts on Spyglass. Did you just think we wouldn't notice?)

I take it by "those two" you mean Mark and Carrie Towner, right?

Breaking News:

Once again the police where called at tonight's Salt Lake County Republican Executive Committee meeting when Mike Ridgway entered the room, saw Mark Towner, moved to the other side of the room to stay in compliance with his 20 foot anti-stalking injunction and sat down not realizing that Carrie Towner was sitting in row in front of him.

Suddenly, Carrie Towner turned around and started yelling at Ridgway that he was violating his injunction on purpose.

Towner ordered Ridgway to leave, stating that he would call the police.

"You have to leave, you have to leave!"

Ridgway said, "call the police, I have a right to attend this meeting."

Ridgway and Carrie Towner came to an agreement as to where Ridgway could sit, but SL County chair, James Evans entered the room and told Ridgway that he could not sit in that Chair because he was chair of the meeting ad he did not want anyone sitting behind him.

Ridgway changed his seat again, but then decided to leave the meeting.

Moments later police arrived and were either told or interpreted (Mark Towner's papers) that Ridgway was not to attend any Republican meetings. What the police must not have known is that Ridgway's injunction was modified as to allow Ridgway his right to attend Republican meetings.

Ridgway concedes that due to the size of the room and the strategic placement of Mark and Carrie Towner he was incapable of following the court order without violating it. That is why he left the meeting.

Questions:

If the Towner's are so afraid of Ridgway, why is Mark Towner posting speculations and images of Norman Bates and "Psychopaths" in reference to Ridgway?

Why didn't James Evans allow Ridgway to sit in the only chair that Carrie Towner agreed was allowable?

Who is stalking who Pinto?

Additional Breaking News:

Salt Lake County Executive Committee bars Michael Ridgway from attending future Executive Committee Meetings.

The following resolution was passed unanimously by the committee with one abstention by Carrie Towner, Senate District 2 chair.

Whereas, Michael Ridgway conducted himself in a disorderly manner at the August 2006 executive committee meeting of the Salt Lake County Executive Committee (the meeting), distracting members of the committee during the meeting;

Whereas, Mr. Ridgway distributed materials to members of the EC during the meeting after being told not to by the chair;

Whereas, Mr. Ridgway acted in a physically aggressive manner, slapping away the hand of Mr. Carlson while he was waving off Mr. Ridgway, clearly indicating not to distribute materials to his place at the table, afterwards pushing his way through to place materials in front of Mr. Carlson anyway;

Whereas, Mr. Ridgway repeatedly ignored calls to order from the chair;

Be it therefore resolved, that Mr. Ridgway be barred from attending SLCoGOP EC Meetings until such time as he offers unqualified apologies to Mr. Carlson, the committee and to the chair for his behavior, and he agrees to abide by the instructions of the chair.

Submitted September 14, 2006 by Phillip Carlson, Senate District 7 Chair

Sounds like SLCoGOP EC a.k.a the County Cartel Corps (CCC), had some real important business last night.

Did you pass a resolution barring James Evans from slandering decent people? Hell No, that would go against our Code!

Did you pass a resolution barring Mark Towner from slandering and libeling Mike Ridgway? No its okay to mess with Mike because he's a pain, I mean how dare he go against the grain, what a Norman Bates!

The reason James Evan didn't want Ridgway behind him: "Because nobody sits behind the CCC Imperial Wizard!"

What a baby! Towner needs to grow up. He wants to post, but when people challenge him he threatens people. Didn't he also threaten other bloggers? He can respond on his spyglass crap that no one reads.

This situation can be traced back to the government's decision to de-institutionalize the non-criminally insane back in the 1980s.

Ridgway is nuts. Period. He needs to rent a life for a couple of weeks which could convince him to get a life of his own in the long term.

Ridgway has expended a lot of energy and upset a lot of people, but what has he accomplished? Is life in Utah any better because of Ridgway's antics?

Too bad ol' Mikey can't channel his energies into something more productive, which would be just about anything other than what he is doing right now.

I have to agree with "the man". It's about time someone stood up to Mike Ridgway. (BTW, Mark Towner is equally as crazy but less bombastic).

I applaud the SL County party for getting rid of Ridgway and focusing on winning elections which Mike has never cared about.

"It's funny how one insect can damage so much grain."

"Empty Garden" by Elton John.

Think of "grain" as the Salt Lake County Republican Party. Who would be the insect?

Answer: Mike Ridgway, Salt Lake City

I don't think he damages the grain per se. He just annoys the hell out people with the intent of driving them out the party.

I think he hopes that no one will be left standing but himself and he can be the boss.

What a scary thought.

Obviously you have no idea what Mike is trying to say.

Obviously I'm too chicken to post my neame, but I do think Mike has some good points.

Hang in there Mike.

then no posts until 7am? From then on clearly from different posters. Look at the previous posts, simular structure and inside knowledge. It's my hunch that these four posts all came from the same person.
