Running for cover from SAMBLA
One of the worst spectacles of SAMBLA (Sam Adams Man-Boy Love Affair) has been the weak- kneed and mealy-mouthed reaction from the Mayor's colleagues on the city council.
First, Randy Leonard. While it is true that he has evolved his position to a place in which he is probably more critical of Adams than any other councillor, he still looks like a complete weenie.
Randy was the primary attack dog when the rumor was surfaced by Bob Ball. He led point on destroying Ball's reputation for "smearing" Sam Adams.
Once Adams admitted the true nature of the relationship, Randy stood by Sam saying "Sam didn't lie to me" because all Randy asked Sam was "did you have sex with an underaged person."
Well, that one flew like a lead balloon, and Randy knew it. So he knew he had to stake out a slightly more defensible position, and Adams made it easy, because his own story kept changing and then it was revealed that he and the boy did play kissy face while the kid was underaged.
But Randy still has not called for Adam's resignation, nor to my knowledge has has he apologized to Bob Ball, whose story now has been proven 100% accurate. So Sam Adams totally played Randy Leonard, used him to destroy a political foe whose story turned out to be true, and Randy is STILL not calling Sam out?
RANDY! Grow a pair!
The others are just as bad. Nick Fish hasn't said much at all. Amanda Fritz is openly supporting Adams, as is Saltzman.
Unbelievable! By their continuing to work with Sam Adams, these folks are condoning a 42 year old man's abuse of a 17 year old boy, and on city property! They are condoning lying to suborn an election.
As far as I am concerned, NONE of these folks are worthy of our respect until and unless they call for Sam Adams resignation and refuse to sit with him on the council.
