This blog has never been set on moderated status. That means that comments are posted directly and immediately without being reviewed by the Impeach Mallory Crew.

I took a few comments down on a post after I got a couple complaints. Let’s try to keep it reasonably clean. You don’t have to play nice, but you can keep it clean.

People have argued that some of the banter devalues the legitimacy of the blog. We do have legitimate grievances, supported by legitimate and very real facts and circumstances.

Investigations currently underway aren’t going as quickly as some contributors would like. It is understandable, but that is the nature of the beast. Sometimes the news comes fast and furious, and sometimes the natives get restless and stir-crazy if they aren’t fed raw meat on time and on schedule.

Keep your eye on the prize. We are not done by any means.

Monzel: Please note 3M's choice is AGAINST managed competion. If you vote for this manager, you will violate the trust your supporters have given you.
Don't sell your supporters down the river as D4S has done.
We would begin an impeachmonzel blog. Count on it!

Good story by Korte today.
He slapped 3M's wrists for his screwing over City Council.
Warning to City Council.....do your job and follow the charter.
KUDOS to Chris Bortz for saying and doing the right thing.
Keep this up and Chris will be the BEST candidate to replace 3M in 2009.

I agree.
The Mayor must have even more hubris after he got that honor in columbus this weekend.
His staff insisting everyone refer to him as "Mr. Mayor".
The driver/bodyguard.
He thinks he is king.
"Mr. Mayor" read the Charter. Bortz is on the money and is the true leader of City Hall.

You know, if this good old bro from Kentucky takes that City Manager's seat, N8 & Nicole Davis will have psycho fits if he doesn't start "cleaning up" at the get go. You know those 2 have been screaming for the police chief's head since time immemorial.

I'm not surprised that 3M attempted to pull this quick, slick one over on everybody.

Hats off to both Bortz & Ghiz. Leslie got heartburn over the financial package this Kentucky boy is reportedly to receive. Um, isn't the Finance Committee & full Council supposed to have a say in this? I would certainly think so.

Memo to 3M: you know, there could be a no-confidence referendum run on you & you'd be out the door faster than you swiveled in.

Memo to the Truth Squad: I completely agree. We all need to clean it up. The banter is OK, but we need to exercise some decorum. You're right in saying that the investigative process is going to take time - those wheels turn ever so slowly. I believe we could help each other & the cause by continuing to dig for more facts & incidents.

Friends, let's don't destroy a good thing here. We can have fun & chatter away, but let's agree to exercise restraint with the colorful adjectives. With that, let's go!

Keep it clean when talking about D4S, Howdie,N8,3M and JB?
This crew demands a few expletives from time to time.
However, with the craziness at City Hall, we must do all possible to defeat 3M's high handed move on the manager.
Monzel is the key. We must make him see that this is his MOMENT OF TRUTH!
D4S's will have his next published screw up soon.
Fired from GE, impeached by WECC for pushing personal agenda, lost his lawsuits, dumped by EZ for conflict of interest. WHAT NEXT????? The TRUTH SQUAD will prevail!

(Enquirer, 6/9/06, Dan Horn)

Attorneys spar over cars
Oba-killing suspect wants wider self-defense view
BY DAN HORN | ENQUIRER STAFF WRITER
Howard Beatty's already unusual murder case keeps getting stranger.

Attorneys on both sides have waged a legal battle in recent weeks that includes a request to expand Ohio law, a reference to the medieval "doctrine of sanctuary" and a debate over the role of cars in modern society.

The issue is whether Beatty, accused of killing community activist Kabaka Oba, can claim he acted in self-defense.


Police say Beatty shot Oba to death April 12 as Oba sat in his car across the street from City Hall.

Beatty's attorneys asked a judge last month to expand Ohio's definition of self-defense so people no longer have a duty to retreat from danger if they are in their cars. They say Beatty had a right to protect himself with lethal force if he felt threatened by Oba.

Prosecutors ridiculed that argument in a response filed last week in Hamilton County Common Pleas Court.

Ken Lawson, Beatty's lawyer, argued last month that the law should regard cars the same as it regards homes - as a place people have a right to defend with lethal force.

He said cars today are more expensive and more like homes than ever before.

Assistant Prosecutor Mark Piepmeier said that description does not apply to the "$250 clunker with obscured license plates" Beatty was driving the day of the shooting. "The defendant's position stands both law and common sense on end," he wrote.

"If the defendant fled to the nearby cathedral after the shooting and attempted to rely on the medieval doctrine of sanctuary, his position would be more tenable than the self-defense expansion he now seeks."

Yes indeedy. The wheels are turning. However, I'd like to know how much Lawson is being paid to puppet this case thru the Courts & who's paying the bill. Granted, Lawson no doubt believes all prosecutors are stupid & the law abiding public is far stupider. Deters put some of his top guns on this & Howdy's gonna get a bus ride to Lucasville, regardless.

Hi,
I put this on the Beacon to voice my opinion on the Mayor's SNAFU

si says:
09 Jun 2006 at 05:19 pm | #
The point is that the Mayor could easily avoided this SNAFU.
He campaigned on collaboration/participation. He could easily have involved council.
The fact that he chose to make this a defacto ubilateral choice was a power grab and a slap in council’s face. Had he communicated along the way and had council participate, buy-in would naturally develop.
That’s the spirit of the Charter. Legalistic word parsing will not help City Hall work as a team.
The Mayor is acting like an immature bully that does not have the wisdom to create the teamwork and collaboration he promised.

Anon 12:55 pm, brother Joe tells all his friends hes the manager for kid D4S so whatcha tellin
us is Phenice is like a manager beard for the campaign? Convenient for an exterior fall guy where there are no interior ones available. Waznt that a tv show, The Fall Guy, cept we got the political fall guys: Howdy, Esther, N8 and Nicole, Lawdawg bounces, Phenice. Wonder if any of them are old enough to remember this was the same shit that sent trickie Dickie up the creek before he was resurrected as a phoenix for lobbyist interbational? D4S and 3M really like those Ph sounds. Phool, Phenicie,Phrequent Philandering (oops, philaundering), phour more years (one will try). Chairman Burke working on his no-phall zone so he can escape into the phat cave. Um,Um,Um quite a goody jar for us to work through, wouldn't you say? Think the Phorays to Deetroit and Chicago to get help will keep D4S hopes alive with 3M political phantasy game consultants manning the phone lines? Phlame on til later while Dickie and Tim help find D4S actual work. Hooty-hoo

Over at Cincinnati City Hall, clown-cil members' shorts are all in bunches because they didn't get to meet the latest beefy Black man Mayor Mallory wants to pay a lot of your money to have near him. This one is Milton Dohoney, a real "heavyweight" from Lexington, to be Cincinnati's new City Mangler. He's not as big and burly as Mallory's bodyguard Scotty, and from the pictures we've seen, he's not as Black either.

Mallory?s critics say most people may not be aware what the mayor is up to here. The Mayor seems to be attempting to circumvent clown-cil and appoint the new City manager. The Mayor has spun this in the media as it is his right to do this. This was an underhanded political move aimed to position the clown-cil into accepting this guy for City manager. The way that this was introduced was a slap in the face of our Nine Fine Clowns and carefully positioned to make them look bad if they fight him on this.

Meanwhile at The Blower, we're trying to get a head start on coming up with a nickname for this doofus. Suggestions so far include: Uncle Miltie (has an Uncle Tom connotation, what with his being from Dixie), Milton Nohonkey, Honey-do Milton, Honey-do Dohoney, and Mallory's Devil's Food Dough Baby.

Now you understand that Milt Dohoney will have to do exactly as he is told by Daddy Mallory & the white boys who do all the powerbroking in this city. People such as Terry Summers (former Delegate to BF), has already bellyached about 3M being the white man's puppet.

Dohoney isn't going to dance the way these black klan factions dictate. And that's really going to upset them, as I'm sure they're licking their chops believing the police chief is the first one out the door. (That, I don't believe, is going to happen right out of the gate.)

At any rate, I like Uncle Miltie. Doughboy Dohoney would be cute, too. Uncle Miltie has a sell out, stepinfetchit, yes boy ring to it.

Twinsing up like mental,political, economic gangbangers who only care for their inner sanctum seed, but don't really take care of it when they spawn or cause to be produced? A power egg of their created kind that they manipulate for their own ego and greed? Keep dysfunction going, keep as many sheep with wool over their eyes to do Mallory bidding. What's pitiful is that seeing good people who seemed to believe in citizens turn against the best interests of the people the claim they render service. So very sad to see and know.

Just call me "soupywolf", WJrs cuzzin of sorts.Have we noted something??? Certain blog nosticators are being kept quiet. Court Street is reeaal quiet. Trickie Dickie's photo is out of sight in socialblog land. But he's pulled in so much money for Phool Heinlich and Timmy is using Dickie and his minions as the financial fundraising arm of the Democratic Party. The big DC thinkers at DLC and the Clintonian think tanks are being used by Uncle Dickie and his buddies at the Enq, Harold to paint the top down theory of citizen participation! We at the top make you think you thought it with Barack, Hillary and company, toss on Cuzzin Jerry who's really not a bad sort for good measure, tell the regular citizen and loyal Dem participant to LOOK FOR THE VISIONARY STAR IN THE EAST, THE BASE WILL TAKE CARE OF ITSELF and once your ass is looking to the east we loose again. Our citizens political persuasion, cannot look to Columbus or DC for leadership. Checking most recent political financials and we see uncle Dickie and company in everybody's pocket. Know the names of DW's minions and Timmie's special fundraising task force and we get to the real bottom of barrels.
Chrissy Redturn becomes Chrissy Redface and needs to read his financials before shaking hands with real Dems before loyal party regulars revise the Godfather and Greenhouse boy finds the hindquarters of a donkey in his bed.He and Dr.Howard better get a grip on what's real and what's trickie Dickie before they continues on the path of least resistance with 3M on behalf of D4S and lose the rest of the Democratic power base.
Young and old neighbors and Dems are being cut right and left by Dick, Tim, Mark pet union label wearer Ratfort. And how does this all come out of the WestEnd? The Mallory boys didnt sweep their trails when they went back and forth around the state.3Ms office minions are too full of egosass when they visit other cities and cast for better roles than 3Ms staff. Fannie didnt raise dumbasses but she did end up with lazyassed pretentious princes that can never be kings because their people are leaving them. The West End Citizens Rebellion lead to reorganizaion of local parties as we know it.And just think, D4S 'pom-pom' Mallory contributed to the positive turnaround with his brothers 3M and Joisy Joe.
Can we buy the JB, fumigate, then open a Soup Kitchen? D4S could buss tables for tips. Okay, taking that back, send him home to Fannie. I want my soup!

Let's do a deal with D4S to get it free.
D4S gets all his real estate free, he lives in his parents house and he pays no taxes.
Being a waiter is too demanding for D4S.....what to do??
He could be a spokesperson for Whizzinator. D4S can preach about the danger of failing a pee in the cup test (how it can ruin a GE job and all that).
He could run an on line Pimp School. Teach folks how to pimp their ho's and be Poverty Pimps as well. There's lots more money at the EZ and D4S is an expert at pimping that system.
Dale's cooking a big pot of crow soup. After 3M get's bitch slapped by council and D4S gets arrested for embezzlement, the Mallorys will be needing to eat and sip a lot of crow.

At the Gay Pride Parade today:
While waiting for everyone to step off on the parade in Burnet Woods, the blue Ford Taurus trawls the roadway, with the same blacks & whites, in black suits, black Oakleys, & cellphones up to their ears. 4 Mallory Mafia thugs in this lead car. Directly behind it, some burgundy colored car, 3M riding shotgun & Scotty riding "president".

No, 3M didn't get out to talk & interface with the participants before the parade started.

However, he got paid back richly. Along the parade route in the Clifton Business District were chants, "Mark Mallory! Take a stand!"

Punk thugs in a lead car. Scotty riding "president". Friends, that just goes to show all of us what 3M thinks of this city (crime) & exactly what he's going to do about the problems & issues (nothing).

Also, I think it's a large bit of 'showboat', too, in carrying around an entourage. They all watch entirely too many bad flicks & cheesy music vids starring Notorious B.I.G., or some other lowlife gangsta.

This crapola really stunk & the Gay Pride Parade & Festival people knew it, & didn't appreciate it one bit.

No sign of D4S, no sign of Honking Heimlich either. Completely AWOL.

West End group demands police investigation of Mallory
Cincinnati Business Courier - 5:13 PM EDT Mondayby Dan MonkSenior Staff Reporter
Print this Article Email this Article Reprints RSS Feeds Most Viewed Most Emailed
Leaders of the West End Community Council are asking Cincinnati police to investigate Dale Mallory, the brother of Cincinnati Mayor Mark Mallory and a Democratic candidate for the 32nd District seat in the Ohio House of Representatives.

Neighborhood activists, meantime, are asking Cincinnati's City Council to investigate Mallory's work for the Cincinnati Empowerment Corp., a federally funded poverty-fighting agency that engaged Dale Mallory as a consultant last spring.



Mallory insists he has done nothing wrong and that his critics are engaged in a politically motivated "witch hunt" against him.

"These nitpicking naysayers are wasting their time," he said. "Our family takes pride in its successes, not in stealing nickels and dimes."

West End Community Council Treasurer Maggie Moon is asking police to investigate the withdrawal of $1,119 from the group's bank account June 1, more than three months after Dale Mallory was impeached as the group's president. Moon said Mallory has refused to turn over financial records, but the group recently obtained from National City Bank a $1,000 check, authorized by Mallory, to the West End YMCA. Another check, for $119, went to an individual. Both were dated June 1, 2006.

Mallory told the Courier that the money was for an arts program at the YMCA. He said the expenditures were authorized by the community council in February. Moon claims there was no such vote and the money should not have been withdrawn.

On another front, a group of neighborhood activists is asking City Council to look into Mallory's work for the Cincinnati Empowerment Corp. They claim the agency paid Mallory to promote the development of a one-stop social services center in the West End.

Mallory's February impeachment followed months of infighting over CityLink, a proposed social services center that a coalition of churches wants to establish at 800 Bank St. The program would provide job training, addiction treatment and educational and counseling services for homeless people and prisoners on early-release programs.

Activists in the West End and surrounding neighborhoods have opposed the CityLink initiative for months. They claim Mallory helped to promote the project by keeping the West End Community Council from voting against the initiative. Recently, the group obtained through a public records request copies of Mallory's invoices to the Empowerment Corp. The records show Mallory met with CityLink organizers more than a dozen times between September 2005 and January 2006.

"He did everything he could for months to obstruct a vote. At the same time, he was working behind the scenes to promote CityLink," alleged Tom Walter, owner and president of Klotter Builders Inc., which manages rental property and creates for-sale housing on Klotter Avenue in the West End.

Walter and Eve Bolton -- who lost a Democratic primary to Mallory -- requested Mallory's billing records from the city under the Ohio Open Records Act. After reviewing the records, he asked members of Cincinnati's City Council to investigate whether Mallory used Empowerment Corp. funding to promote CityLink and whether that work was a conflict of interest with his community council duties.

Mallory told the Courier he wasn't promoting CityLink, only helping the agency evaluate whether it should support the initiative. He said it wasn't a conflict because he never took a vote on the CityLink initiative.



"Those were informational meetings," said Mallory.

Empowerment Corp. board member Len Garrett said he wasn't aware that Mallory was holding regular meetings with CityLink organizers. Garrett said Mallory's contract called for him to act as a liaison between the Empowerment Corp. and neighborhood community councils all over the city -- not to work on specific developments.

"If I had known he was working with CityLink and billing us, I would have stopped it," Garrett said.

Anon 6:27, you serve Dan Monk the soup. I'm going to rustle up a porterhouse steak dinner, all the trimmings & all he can drink. If he wants fine cigars & fancy women, I'll see what I can do about that.

Patience in matters such as this is a great virtue. The wheels turn slowly, but when the stuff hits the fan, it flies in many directions, as you have just seen.

It's all over. D4S & the Mafia need to fold up, pack it in & go underground or something.

Woo Hoo!

Been dead over at N8's place for awhile. He's probably lapdogging for Lawson during that Jury Trial of Dante "Pretty" Person, the piece of dirt who shot at the 2 female police officers.

"Pretty" is gonna make some big bull in the joint a pretty bride. Just deserves.

So, with N8 & Lawson out of commission, there's no one minding the store. Down goes D4S!

Dale Mallory may be a bigger idiot than even I had ever imagined. Cutting checks four months after being removed from office? The man is not just a criminal, he is a very ignorant criminal. I guess maybe I gave him too much credit.
