The Piercing Truth

This is right from the dictionary and seems to describe Albuquerque, Berry and Schultz. Fascism (f ash ,izem) noun An authoritarian right wing system of government and/or social organization. (in general use) extreme right wing, authoritarian, chauvinistic and/or intolerant views or practices. Fascism tends to include a belief in the supremacy of one group over another, national, ethnic, especially social strata or monetarily; a contempt for democracy, an insistence on obedience to a powerful leader, and a strong demagogic approach.

Pushin' the Poll?

A few minutes ago we were forwarded an email from one of our Eyes. Apparently the email was sent to supporters of Mayor Chavez and encouraged them to vote in our Eye Poll. We want to welcome the mayor's supporters and urge them to get an Eye full after voting. We've copied the text of the mayor's email below.
From: Mayor Martin Chavez
To: undisclosed-recipients
Subject: Your Vote Needed
Date: Wed, 13 Jun 2007 09:10:16 -0600

Hello Everyone,

I believe under my leadership, and with your tireless help the City of Albuquerque has grown into the world class city that we have all dreamed of.

A local blog in town, www.eyeonalbuquerque.com is asking Albuquerque residents if they approve of my job as Mayor?

Every small poll such as this counts, please take thirty seconds to vote in this local blog.


Best Regards,

Martin J. Chavez
We just wonder... is this an attempt to push the poll in favor of job approval? Last night at about 10:30 the poll was dead even with 48% approving of the mayor's performance and 48% disapproving. Admittedly the Eye Poll is an unscientific poll, so it will be interesting to see if the final numbers from this week's poll are skewed heavily toward approval as they should be; or if they are not what does that really mean?

----- Editors Note -----
When we first this was first posted we forgot to include the email header from the message forwarded to us - that has been corrected above. Could this have been a faked email... easily. However, since we have received it from multiple sources we believe it to be at least someone working on behalf of the mayor. If you received this email, feel free to forward it to us at editor@eyeonalbuquerque.com.

Ok Eye...even I am having a hard time believing this one, but will watch for the "skewing" of the poll and hence your "redemption" :)

The accountability on the email seems so transparent as to be stupid if true. I don't know that anyone thinks marty chavez is stupid.

Are you comfortable that the mayor actually sent it?

Is your source impeccable? is his?

Any government that is not vested in truth and has a disturbing lack of integrity will fail the citizens. I voted for this Mayor each time that he ran. I felt that this site was nothing more than a ragg. These past few days have chnged my opinion on both issues. I will not be treated as an idiot who doesn't see the cameras for what they really are. This Mayor and his lying Chief need to be replaced.

I received the email and I did forward it to the "eye" this morning. I found it interesting that the Mayor or his supporters would be sending me an email asking me to respond to a blog that I did not know existed until this morning. The email did not end in the normal city email address - @cabq.gov .

I have learned to never doubt how stupid or smart people are until I get an opportunity to know them and I am no longer surprised that smart people can be very stupid.

Some "smart" people start getting really "stupid" when they PANIC!!!!! Somebody is starting to sweat a bit don't you think?

EVERYONE THAT VISITS. Vote: top right of this page. Marty approval numbers only went up after the city employees we ordred to vote in favor of 'approval'. If you have to mandate this especially on City worker time, what does this say. They're voting "approval" out of fear of losing their jobs.
Stop being bullied. Get the gumption to say no.
Why is everybody affraid of him?

As an ex city employee I can tell you that most dept heads and directors are afraid of the guy and afraid to stand up to him---never could understand why though.

I SUSPECT THAT'S WHY YOU ARE AN EX-EMPLOYEE !!! Moron !!!

Better to be an ex-employee with integrity than a hypocritical little whore. That's right, whore.
Like being known as that? (Like the pretent Republicans who work for this mayor)
You obviously can't hold a job in the real world. Case in point. Our so called Transportation Director.
