More On Opposition To Straub
WISH TV's Jim Shella has a story on the opposition to Mayor Greg Ballard's new Public Safety Director appointee, Frank Straub. Shella interviews my good friend and leader of the Republican Liberty Caucus, local attorney Elizabeth Karlson. Unlike other news reports, Shella gets the political importance of this disagreement rather than focusing on bashing gun rights activists like some others have chosen to do in the news media. "And that leads Karlson to her real target, Mayor Greg Ballard," Shella reports. "Both on Facebook and in her role as chair of the Republican Liberty Caucus, Karlson makes the case that Ballard is not true to Republican principles." "The Straub confirmation is one battle in a much bigger war."
