Is Jerry Green Plainfield's answer to Mephistopheles?
Neither fans nor foes of Plainfield Assemblyman Jerry Green will want to miss David Rutherford's firsthand account of Jerry's jobs technique.
David's post is entitled 'The Patronage Mill' and you can read it here. In it he describes Jerry's attempt to recruit David.
It appears to be just a coincidence that on Tuesday Jerry put up a rambling post protesting his innocence and non-involvement in local affairs, attacking the bloggers, and rambling disconnectedly. Is it any wonder that his nickname at the Statehouse is 'Mumbles'? (It seems possible, from stylistic evidence, that the entry was dictated to someone -- a much younger staff person?)
The bloggers extract their own revenge -- Olddoc took a scalpel to the Assemblyman today (see here).
And Bernice caught Jerry in one of his usual non sequiturs, contrasting actual slimy Jerry words about a candidate for public office and his protestation that he is innocent of such behavior (see her piece here).
At any rate, you can file Jerry's post under 'Fiction' and consider David's, Bernice's and Olddoc's under 'Fact'.
