Someone Tell Bob the Election is Over

Bob wrote on columbuzz:
"During the campaign, I brought up the issue of Fred Barkes, our Columbus Township Trustee, using $225,000 of money from the Assistance Fund, which every resident in the township pays, to buy a maintenance building for the township fire department.  Fred knows that is not only against the rules, but it is against the law and could be considered a felony.  Fred told me that himself, early in the campaign."

Bob, you've been "looking into this" for the past six months and you still can't cite the specific law that was broken.  Conversely, I have cited the specific law that you broke and it is, without a doubt, a felony.

"But nobody cared.  Nobody listened."

Nobody believed you.  Most people think you're a raving lunatic.

"On Election Day, "vote re-pub-li-can, vote re-pub-li-can, vote re-pub-li-can"
"We know he's a crooked bastard, but vote re-pub-li-can, vote re-pub-li-can, vote re-pub-li-can" baa baa baa baa baaaaaaaaaa"


You are wrong AGAIN.  They know he's NOT a crooked bastard and that you're a chronic liar.

"So he got away with what is probably a felony."

We all know that you got away with what is definitely a felony.

"People who live in the township, and in the city of Columbus, pay for Columbus CITY fire protection and don't pay for township fire protection.  Since the trustee used assistance money, $225,000 worth, to buy the maintenance building for the fire department, that means people in the city, who helped pay for assistance, got to help pay for fire protection in the part of the township they don't live it.  That's sneaky, wrong, and, most likely, illegal."

Just because you disagree with how the money was spent does not make it sneaky, wrong, or illegal.

"So what are we going to do about it?  I think the State Board of Accounts needs to take a closer look at it."

They already did that during the audit.

"And if it is a felony, maybe our prosecutor should look at it as well."

Maybe the prosecutor should look more closely at odometer fraud.

Bob is still delusional that he lost the election due to straight ticket voters. Bob, you lost in a landslide. Plus, I know that you even had votes for the sheer entertainment value you would have provided. The large majority of people see through your claims for the lies that they are.

Bob's problem is his lack of facts. You... have... no....facts.

Hey Mercman,

I saw on some podunk forum Bob made a post claiming someone was making vile posts on Columbuzz back in August/September time frame. He said they thought it was you, but they figured out who it was.

Lie.

They did think it was you, but the posts weren't vile, and they didn't figure out who it was.

I told them who I was. I gave them my email. I did so because he kept calling me Merc. He would post my comment, reply, and when I would best him with my next post, the guy would delete them all.

Super investigation, Bob.

Whoops, I forgot this part.

I say this because he posted that he was working on linking us together. If he wants to do that, he will need to play six degrees of seperation, because I have no clue who you are.

Official Press Release Statement from Bob Freeman:

Not a Crook

Mercman... really, I am said...

For a long time (and probably still) Bob truly believed everybody thought the way he does and agreed with how he sees things, except for only ONE person....Mercman.
Therefore, anyone opposing Bob or his views, must be Mercman.

He refuses to believe that people see him for the fool he is, except for that one troublemaker...Mercman.

I've seen him falsely accuse MANY of being me. I just watch and laugh.

Some of that was caused by intentional misdirection by me, but most of it was, and still is, Bob's intoxication from his own cocktail of Incompetence and Arrogance.

The election is not over until Bob says it is over.

Bob has the final word....period...you'll see...I'm working on it...nuff said...too bad...get over it....I'm done...etc.



There once was a fool named Bob,
Who lost his house, his wife, and his job.
He always denied,
And he lied, and he lied,
'Til he was run out of town by a mob.

Could that be Mercman standing behind Bob in the photo link above?

It is quite apparent that Bob is bitter over the election. Bob is such a blowhard and obviously has sour grapes.

He cannot fathom a world that:

1. Votes him down because they didn't feel him the best candidate for the job
2. Where those with different opinions than his outnumber those with his opinions.
3. Where another candidate resonated with the people more than him.
4. Where people fed up with the way things are voted against the party in power in Washington (the same way many did when they voted for Obama).
5. Where people agree with the Republican agenda more than the Democrat's.
6. Where people have two different ways of looking at things and ways to solve them (if they need solved at all).
7. Where they vote for experience or were satisfied the way the job is being done by the person already with the position.
8. Where he loses because it was his fault.

No, if he lost and the evil Republicans won it has to be because they are party loyal sheep who would vote for an evil, despicable Republican candidate than ANY Democratic one.

Please. Of course he fails to reason that the mayor (Democrat) has won a number of times in a row and other candidates have too? What happened there? Well, he doesn't consider those because they don't fit in with his "belief" of which no logic or proof is necessary.

"FROM THE 2007 SBOA Audit
COLUMBUS TOWNSHIP, BARTHOLOMEW COUNTY
EXAMINATION RESULT AND COMMENT
IMPROPER BUDGETARY EXPENDITURE

Purchase for a maintenance building was made from other services and charges instead of the
capital outlay category.

Disbursements should be paid from properly authorized line items. (Accounting and Uniform
Compliance Guidelines Manual for Townships, Chapter 13)"

Note that the manual says SHOULD not MUST.

It is also under 'Guidelines', not 'Rules' or 'Requirements'.

SHOULD

----Moron. You can't divy up the tax spendings like that. Affluent people can't protest money spent on poor relief because they don't use it. I can't complain about the trustee keeping up a cemetery on one side of the township because I've never even seen the cemetery. I certaintly can't (and wouldn't) complain about my neighbor getting fire assistance with my tax money just because the city covers my side of the street and not the other.
