Rap brawl at City Hall
Mayor Bob "Big Boy" Filner to take on Jan "Mayor Slayer" Goldsmith in Epic Rap Election this Fall
Filner on Feud: "It's time to settle this like adults - adults who wish they could rap."
Popular vote will determine champion; winner gains control of so-called "discretionary funds."
Longtime rivals release opening statements at event announcement; skirmishes expected to continue throughout the summer.
Goldsmith: "Don't see the need for a poll/ This mayor's out of control/ His plan is taking its toll/ Peeling bills of the roll/ Digging deeper than coal/ It's time to Fill-ner the hole!"
Filner: "I got a plan for Jan, City Atttorney/ He's done, had his fun, now it's time for a journey/ He roll flat on his back, on a hospital gurney!"
