The comment below was emailed earlier claiming to be from another Mayoral candidate. I don't trust that the name used was legit so I am not posting the name though. I do want to hear your thoughts though. One of the things that concerned me about the Touch of Class posting was the age of the offense. But the more I thought about it and the more I spoke to other people, I was convinced that integrity and character matter for a person today, yesterday and yes , even from 1989. And at the very least, don't we have the right to know what type of person we elect and don't they have an obligation to address our concerns.
Here is the comment posted earlier, minus the posters name as they claimed.
1989? really? You're that desperate that you'll stoop to this?
campaign doesn't care about what the Mayor might've done in 1989, and quite
honestly I don't think the residents of Hartford do either.
I think it is an attempt to deflect attention away from Pedro Segarra, Let me know what you think.
Keep in mind we have just gone through the Catholic Churches pedophile priest scandal and I don't recall anyone saying we shouldn't discipline child abusing priests because their crimes were committed 20 or 30 years ago
Someone that is willing to ignore oaths they take as an attorney or a prosecutor in 1989 will most likely do the same today . The truth is the same in 1950 , 1989 or today.
I'll go back to a Mark Twain quote Segarra seems to be fond of "If you always tell the truth, you never have to remember the lies". So let's see if he remembers the truth.
And I think whoever wrote that comment, I think you are drastically underestimating the people of Hartford. We do care about the truth no matter its age.
