Lions and Tigers and Bears: Abdul's Done It Again
Ok, I try not to write about it, but I just can't help myself. It's like fish in a barrel. Abdul's probably making s*#t up...AGAIN.
This time, he's spreading the rumor that Melina Kennedy is in some sort of feud with Ed Treacy over who she hired as her campaign manager. Again, as far as I can tell, this is total bull. Complete and total.
I sat at Len Farber's Fundraiser at the end of March at the SAME TABLE with Melina Kennedy and Ed Treacy well after she hired Nick Buis as her campaign manager (Abdul says the feud's because she didn't hire Adam Kirsch), and the Chair and Melina had more than a pleasant conversation. Much of which I said I wouldn't put out because it was inside strategy stuff.
Unlike Abdul, I try to back up my stuff with facts. In case you doubt my story, I found this picture from the event on my friend Jyoti Weaver's Facebook page. These are photos of the event. On the right hand side, you can see Kennedy in the red and Treacy in the blue sweater. I'm there on the other side of the table.
They were civil and seemed to enjoy each other's company.
All I can tell you is that once again, Abdul is relying on sources that want to divide the Marion County Democratic Party...or, more nefariously, he's maybe doing it on his own. It's no secret that Abdul's relationship with Kennedy and with Treacy is not the best.
