If this were a conservative sign filled with bad information (lies) our Scooper, the Former Union Editor, would be all over it, posting a retort on his blogs.
So the question is why this Scooper ignoring this obvious lie by the supporters of Measure S? Rather than go into a lengthy discussion on the distortion I point the reader to this discussion on Rebane’s Ruminations Especially this comment by a Measure S Supporter, admitting the sign is a lie:
Well, if you consider that Ms. Smith and one other ASA member heard that the BOS was planning a ban directly from the mouth of Mr. Greg Diaz, as well as another high ranking county official, the ASA group had no reason the believe that this was not the plan.
Especially when you have to rent and pay for bill boards 4-5 months before they are installed.
Now the board has recently clarified this position, but that makes no difference at this point…..

So, does this lie make a difference? I think it does, it damages the credibility of all supporters of Measure S. Vote NO on Measure S!
