Still Waiting, Drew
One day later, Drew Theodore's campaign has yet to present any evidence supporting the candidate's claim that Will Folks "attacked his family" and "attacked his father," either here on FITS or anywhere else for that matter.
Theodore's assertion, made during Monday night's Comptroller General debate, has since been picked up by dozens of news outlets across the state, including an editorial in this morning's Sun News.
We'll be the first to admit it's easy to hate Will.
In fact, Heather S. finds him positively intolerable prior to his daily Blended Venti Mocha Frappucino (with the chocolate drizzle) treat from Starbuck's. We're pretty sure David Wilkins, Dan Cooper, Hugh Leatherman, Bobby Harrell and John Rainey aren't big fans, either, to say nothing of Greg and Betty Ryberg. Apparently, Will's mother still loves him, but based on our conversations around town the circle of trust doesn't extend that much further.
Accordingly, it's completely natural to assume that any nefarious and diabolical accusation made against Will must be the truth, which is precisely why Drew Theodore said what he did in Monday's debate.
There's just one small problem.
It's not true.
We've scoured this blog from top to bottom and there's absolutely nothing - zero, zip, zilch, nada - that we've written about either Theodore's family or his father.
Now FITS has suggested that Theodore himself bears an uncanny resemblance to actor Chris Sarandon (pictured above). And we've also had a lot of fun with his strange (and since-removed) posts from several automotive blogs. We may have even slipped up every once in awhile and called him a "liberal" or a "Democrat."
But attacking his family? Attacking his father? Please.
So once again, in the interests of fairness, we're asking Drew Theodore to prove the claim he made in Monday's debate. If he can't, he needs to admit that the statement was untrue and apologize.
