More Philliness (again)
Politics in Philadelphia reaching yet ANOTHER low point:
He adds a Web site for firing at Fattah
Newspaper publisher Jerry Mondesire isn't relying just on the pages of his Philadelphia Sun to influence the 2007 mayor's race.
He's got a Web site up, too - but don't look for his name on it.
Mondesire, also NAACP chapter president, is the creator of www.fattahxray.com, a site seemingly dedicated to mocking longtime rival U.S. Rep. Chaka Fattah (D., Phila.).
The newspaperman has already announced that he might challenge Fattah for his House seat next year if the Democratic congressman decides to go through with his possible run for City Hall. (Mondesire does not want Fattah to have another easy congressional reelection while also running for mayor.) The TrekMedic believes this is because Con. Fattah doesn't cowtow to certain NAASAA* political forces,...
Consider the Web site, for which he is the registrant, an addition to his arsenal.
Among the "news to watch" and "Chakatoons" (which have not yet appeared) is this survey question: "Do you think Congressman Fattah is doing the job you elected him to do?"
Among four possible answers: "No! He is totally inept" and "No! His golf game is suffering."
Mondesire, by the way, is supporting State Rep. Dwight Evans (D., Phila.) for mayor, who is considered certain to run, but has not yet announced.- Marcia Gelbart
