Slime-O-The Day: Jimmy Dimora

dimoraWe'd love to have been a fly on the wall when Bob Bennett cut his deal with Jimmy Dimora to oppose Issues 3, 4 and 5. Dimora, you see, is a Cuyahoga County Commissioner. Dimora is also chair of the Cuyahogo County Democrats.

Dimora pissed off a lot of people last week for announcing his inane opposition to the Reform Ohio Now amendments.

Now that Dimora's voice is showing up on answering machines all over the Cleveland area telling voter's to oppose Issues 3, 4 & 5, there is a whole army that want Dimora's hide. From a recording of the robocall:
Hi, this is Jimmy Dimora, chairman of the Cuyahoga County Democratic Party with a report and message about Issues 3, 4, and 5.

. . .

Issues 3, 4 & 5 should be defeated. Please join me in voting no on Issues 3, 4 and 5. Thank you for your time and attention.

Announcer: Paid for by Ohio First.
That last line pretty well sums it up. Jimmy is paid for by the Ohio First guys. Internally, it would appear that the entire CCDP may not be on board with Jimbo. The CCDP until recently had a link to the Plain Dealer article on its home page (bless you, google cache! - see below) but now the site seems to have been scrubbed of all anti-RON messages.

Fortunately, or unfortunately as the case may be, it's our guess that Dimora realizes that if the RON amendments pass, hack-a-riffic pols of his ilk in both parties will be done for as new activists who relish competition rush into the Dems and the GOP, sweeping out the old guard.

It can't happen too soon. And, hey, you could always call him and tell him how you feel. 1-216 -443-7180.

And, make this reason #403 for Denny White to find a new job.
