Last week, the News Journal reported Kathleen Davies won her Merit Employee Review Board appeal hearing. She will be reinstated at the Auditor of Accounts office after a two and a half-year ordeal. She ran for State Auditor but lost to opponent Kathy McGuiness in the September 6th Primary. McGuiness won the General Election so the two women will soon be working in the same building.
Eric Morrison wrote a guest piece on this saga and what it means for Delaware: Continue reading →
A citizen in the 9th State Representative district caught Monique Johns or someone from her campaign stealing a Kevin Hensley flyer from their door. This is a very bad optic for the Democrat opponent of incumbent Republican Kevin Hensley.
The citizen has video cameras on their porch. In the first video, from today, it clearly shows Hensley inserting a flyer into the door. In the second video, also from today but later in the day based on shadows and the sun moving to a different position, an African-American woman wearing a red jacket and a white baseball cap comes to the door. She takes the Hensley flyer from the door. She looks on a list of some sort and then puts her own flyer in the door. I have never met Johns so I can’t tell if it is her or not. The shadows make it difficult to find out.
The citizen wrote this as a forward to the two videos and picture of the Johns flyer:
Nice Sunday for our local candidates to make house calls. In the first video is Kevin Hensley dropping by the house and putting his flyer in the door. A little later in the afternoon we got a second visitor. Monique Johns who in the video clearly steals Kevin’s pamphlet out of our door and replaces it with her own. Enjoy
The explosive Facebook video can be found here. It has been viewed on Facebook over 4,300 times today and I have no doubt it will continue to rise. Johns lost against Hensley in 2016. After this, I can’t imagine any citizen wanting to vote for her. Some may say it was an honest mistake but it looks pretty damn blatant to me! What say you Delaware Election Commissioner Elaine Manlove?
With two days until the Delaware Primary, things are heating up. For the State Auditor race, some people are getting scared of a Kathleen Davies victory. So much so they are willing to torpedo their professional life so folks don’t vote for Davies. When it comes from the Auditor of Accounts office with someone who reported directly to Davies, that is very bad for that employee. The Merit Employee Review Board has not even finished their hearing but Tammy Smith feels she can say whatever she wants. I think what may shape Smith’s career is her Facebook post, not the outcome of the Primary. Continue reading →
Jessica Bies with the News Journal wrote an article about State Auditor candidate Kathleen Davies and willfully withheld information provided to her that would have drastically changed her article. There is absolutely no credible reason for Bies to withhold crucial information like that. Continue reading →
