Eye Poll: Marty's Biggest Scandal

We've been taking quite a bit of flack for not publishing the results of our early summer Eye Poll. One poster claimed that we were "pissed-off" by the results. Actually, concerned is the word we'd use but in either case, we hadn't posted the results due to some rather pressing vocational issues.

So here they are... According to May Eye Readers the biggest mayoral mishap over the last 8 years was (insert drum roll here)... coming in with 26% of the vote, exaggerating red light camera statistics! The ABQ PAC, Evidence Room, and Bode Aviation Scandals each came in with 10% of the vote, Marty's greenhouse gas got 8% and 2% didn't know.

What has us concerned (and what more than likely our pernicious poster wanted brought out) was that 36% indicated that they didn't care (view the results here). We suspect that Marty's Minions were busy clicking away at the only selection that they could vote for. And obviously if your job is dependent on Marty remaining on the 11th floor throne, it's in your best interest to not care.

Apathy is what got us to this point - locally and nationally. Too many people don't take the time to judge the content of the character of the people they elect. Multiple scandals that are brushed under the rug by election time are an indication of a character flaw - one that's easy to miss if you don't take the time to care.

When are we going to hear something from you about Pete Domenici and Heather Wilson's biggest scandal?

How about how your hero RJ Berry got affirmative action treatment for his construction company by naming his wife the president, even though she never came to the office or ran a construction job? There's a real honorable man for you.

How about something about those GOP scandals, Eye?

People do not care about Marty being unethical - they know he is. attack him because he is incompetent at his job- unemployment rates, Eclipse mess, crime. That's why he needs to go!

Your logic is a bit illogical. Why would the Mayor's people care about a scandal poll but not care about the vote for mayor poll? I think Marty would have people respond to both, if he had them respond to any.

People did not care.

Sounds like there is going to be more coming out on the fraud waste and abuse. Everyone knows there is a problem with money and accounting in this administation.

The Airport scandal is goint to take its toll.

It's funny that there are so many scandals to pick from.

Look at the comments on KOB about the airport funds,,,
