This message kinda makes sense now…

January 15, 2008

I received the following message over a month ago. It kinda makes sense now:

Date: Dec 13, 2007 10:48PM
Subject: u need 2 investigate. . . .

Danny told [REMOVED] that he is not going to be mayor because he makes to much money from his retirement from the railroad. 20,000 more a year than he is supposed 2. How the hell was Hancock Mayor when he owned half the city?? The city voted him in. . . but I guess you have to be poor to be mayor. Get the word out? Will ya? [REMOVED] Danny has promised jobs and already hired people. This is bad.


All of the “[REMOVED]” stuff is either a) not relevant and would only serve to help identify the sender and/or b) personal in nature (it was from a good friend of mine).

I didn’t post it at the time because it didn’t really make sense (and I didn’t bother inquiring further). I suppose I should have.
