O'Donnell: Another Tin Foil Hat Candidate
In 1988, he was fired as an auditor with the state for doing township business on the state dime. O'Donnell justified it, saying that no tax dollars were lost and he always made up the time lost. He did appeal his termination through his union, but I have never been able to determine what happened.
What bothers me is his cantankerous, mean-spirited style, which he displayed to County Council right before the primary.
During courtesy of the floor, he got up and gave a campaign speech. In Mccarthy-esque style, he claimed some candidates are inadequate. "I will not name names, but you will know who I am taking about, but I will name names if I am chosen to represent the residents after the primary."
I'm waiting for him to name those names.
O'Donnell, like Controller Steve Barron, likes to claim he's a "certified fraud examiner." That's a fancy way of saying he's not an accountant.
He claims that "if you are not part of the solution, you're part of the problem." Since he has proposed no solutions to County government, other than attacks against people he does not name, I think it's safe to say he's part of the problem.
Notwithstanding the LV Labor Council endorsement, which frankly casts doubt on their own abilities, O'Donnell belongs with Phillips in the tin foil hat brigade.
