Brandon King has debate opponent who humiliated him arrested, jailed and instructs cops not to let him make bond on his word only that he was “assaulted”

CLEVELAND, OH – Richmond Heights resident Brandon King lost a mayoral debate miserably to a first time candidate with a lengthy criminal record who simply outclassed and outknowledged him with every response.  “Name-dropping” King was humiliated in front of an audience of supporters to a repentant ex-offender who made the mayor and his two ex-offending brothers look more like a criminal than he’d ever been.  He even made the mayor’s master’s degree in business look like nothing than just a piece of paper since King’s never been hired by a major corporation or government agency to use it.

Councilman Timothy Austin accused of arson murder attempt after he asks elderly couple for more home repair money and the ex-Iraq war vet was refused

CLEVELAND, OH – An 80-year-old East Cleveland couple narrowly-escaped being burned to death in their home at 14105 Orinoco Road after a murderous arsonist torched the front and rear doors of their residence on August 21st.    The tactic is similar to one lawless soldiers and terrorists disregarding rules of conflict use to massacre unarmed civilians or drive out “holed in” enemy combatants.

Turner raised over $6.2 million to Shontel Brown’s $4.5 million and lost by 4000 votes with their endorsements and that of Russian United States Senator Bernard Gitman Sanders.  It’s Kevin Kelley who now has to see if he can do better with one of the two local endorsements.  The Plain Dealer
