Rally to recall Filner fizzles

Michael Pallamary, a prominent Land Use expert (A-hem) launched his recall effort today at the Civic Center. This supposed widespread and popular movement was an epic bust. The movement boasts 5000 likes on Facebook--it must be hugely popular right? because it's not like it's easy to buy Facebook likes and create the illusion of popularity. Obviously people are busting at the seams to see Filner go.

You would never know that if you had seen the rally today and I was at the last two pro-Filner rallies and the energy there was truly electrifying and inspiring. The energy at the Recall rally was wha wha whaaaaa.

It's interesting that these 'protectors of women' are going full speed ahead with their recall effort considering none of the claims have even been filed and no evidence has been brought forward.

In fact on July 17 Channel 10 did a 180 on their story about Democratic assemblywoman Lori Saldana demanding he resign. She said Filner should not resign right after she announced that she had been warning people about Filner for years. "So far, the attorneys have not met the burden of proof of criminal wrongdoing,"

She also told Channel 10, "Until an employee is willing to come forward, these attorneys are drumming up a lot of anger, a lot of emotion, but they're not presenting the evidence that would be needed for either a civil or criminal conviction."

Why is this Land Use expert so eager to get the recall started before any of the allegations are even proven? Could it have anything to do with the failed effort by developers to steal Balboa Park using their frontman Irwin Jacobs and his trojan horse of a gift to destroy the historic landmark status of the Cabrillo bridge and open the park up to future development?

There were a lot of supporters of Filner's at this Recall rally who were sick and tired of being bullied by the likes of Pallamary and his smoke and mirror campaign. They were the only ones there out of passion. The people who supported the recall were utterly bored and lacking any luster or real passion or sign-making skills. These people were clocked in.

This Pallamary put his recall website up well before any of the sexual allegations were made. The effort was an epic failure. What a coincidence that a month or so later some anonymous horrific allegations emerged that would surely spark outrage.

No prominent citizens attended this rally unlike the pro-Filner rally where many prominent and respected activists spoke in favor of Filner.

This effort is a coup and citizens should be absolutely outraged that special interests are using the media to paint a narrative that is so far from true it is laughable.

Be careful San Diego. This is OUR City and the promoters of this effort are angry because Filner has proven he actually works FOR us. He is the best mayor we have had in decades and we must be careful about buying the media propaganda on this.
