Madison Council to spend $10,000 to find out.
Shadayra Kilfoy Flores withdrew her demand for a public hearing Tuesday pending results from a professional forensic data and voice firm to determine who said the terrible C-word during the council meeting in the early morning hours of September 2.
The Madison Common Council obliged by voting 17-2 Tuesday night 10-06-20 to spend $10,000 on expert analysis.
That did not stop Kilfoy-Flores from continuing to accuse Ald. Paul Skidmore Tuesday night.
“Ald. Skidmore is a paid employee and an elected official he should be held to a higher standard. I waited for an apology. what Paul Skidmore did was abuse of his power … What that is saying, Women and minorities that we don’t belong at the table.”
Is Blaska a victim, too?
Kilfoy Flores also took a shot at this blogger. “I want to say to David Blaska you are disgusting, you are gross. You should stop trolling me. To use Anisa Scott’s name against me is despicable.… Blaska let your people know to leave me alone, please.” (Not certain what she means by that, unless it is quit writing about her?)
Which is interesting, since she posted this not-so-veiled threat against Blaska when we ran for Madison school board in 2019.
Harrington McKinney came to Skidmore’s defense.“Ald Skidmore has been tarred, feathered and accused without any due diligence. He said he didn’t do it. … what happened to ‘innocent until proven guilty’?
“I also object to due process, or lack of it,” Ald. Skidmore said. ” It was a matter of a couple days before I read my name in the paper and a letter signed by 14 of my colleagues and that said ‘Skidmore did it.’ Fourteen of my colleagues have already commented that they have come to a decision. I will be voting no.’
Harrington-McKinney and Skidmore were the only votes against the voice analysis.
Blaska’s testimony, abridged:
Does it bother you that this Inquisition is so nakedly partisan? Ald. Prestigiacomo encouraged Madison to “F-bomb S-Word up” in a scheduled riot that PROMISED “no bad protesters, no good cops?”
Ald. Kemble uttered a profanity — and in both cases, there was no doubt to the identity of the speaker. Doesn’t it bother you that they get a pass?
Politics is what this Marxist show trial is all about.
Shadayra Kilfoy Flores is Cops out of School, Derail the Jail, Defund the Police, F-bomb 12. In other words your kind of people. She tried to derail Chief Koval, now it’s Paul Skidmore.
Her very own written complaint lifts the curtain on this political hit job. Alder Skidmore: “has a history of speaking and voting in a manner that I believe could be fairly characterized as sexist and racist.” In other words, the alder votes wrong. He supports police.
Skidmore, her theory goes, “had just lost a fight to those who have fought tooth and nail to see a city where all people feel safe.”
FEEL SAFE? Tell that to State Sen. Tim Carpenter, Dr. Beth Potter, Mr. Carre, Anthony Chung, and Anisa Scott. Tell that to the victims of escalating car thefts, home invasions, and high-speed shoot-outs.
