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. According to

Attorney Darryl Eugene Pittman made history in 1985 as East Cleveland’s first mayor since 1904; and one who had to implement a new form of government

CLEVELAND, OH – Attorney Darryl Eugene Pittman was elected on September 27, 1985 as East Cleveland’s first Mayor since 1904; and he died on July 10, 2021 the day before his 72nd birthday.  Darryl was a Columbia educated attorney born and raised in Youngstown, Ohio.  He was an older brother, a husband, a father, grandfather and one of the smartest men I knew.  Geek smart.  So is his brother … Ron. To his peers in Cleveland’s legal community Darryl was known as a good lawyer and partner in Pittman, Buchanan, Alexander, Hardiman & Wade. Two of his partners, Dean Buchanan

Melinda Gates had to deal with a Microsoft engineer being busted at their Seattle mansion for kiddie porn and Bill’s friendship with convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein

CLEVELAND, OH – Microsoft co-founder and chief executive officer William Henry Gates, III thinks his wealth gives him the ability to solve the world’s problems.  Now that soon-to-be ex-wife Melinda Ann French-Gates has filed for a divorce the world is learning the world’s 4th richest oligarch can’t even solve the problems in his household.  The oligarch Gates’ “family” image is headed for a nose dive as journalists ignore the public figure’s request for privacy.  Big Tech doesn’t care about anyone else’s privacy.  The Gates don’t get a pass. Published reports originating with the Daily Beast are alleging that one of

Juanita Gowdy’s running for East Cleveland mayor because voters are disgusted with Richmond Heights resident Brandon King’s lying and stealing

Council vice president Juanita Gowdy started asking the hard questions about contracts, police warrantless pursuits the media calls high speed chases and Brandon King's spending as soon as she joined council on January 1, 2020.

CLEVELAND, OH – Council Vice President and East Cleveland Sunrise publisher Juanita Gowdy is counting on the truth that the voters of East Cleveland know more than a few things about Mayor Brandon King that disgusts them as she challenges him for the “chief law enforcement officer”s job he holds illegally as a Richmond Heights resident.  Elected officials under Ohio laws must be residents of the community they’re elected to serve. For the past nearly two years, Gowdy and East Cleveland Sunrise co-publisher Justyn Anderson have been distributing their 5000 circulation newspaper to every household, door-to-door, providing information-starved voters and

Ex-US Attorney Herdman needed mortgage fraud felon Darryl Moore’s $2.8 million in restitution; so the USDOJ said nothing while he stole it from East Cleveland in no bid HUD demolition contracts with King’s help

CLEVELAND, OH – When Richmond Heights resident Brandon King usurped the office of East Cleveland mayor as a non-resident of the city on January 1, 2018, his friend, Darryl Moore, had only made $3400 in restitution payments to the United States government through the U.S. District Court of the Northern District of Ohio. Moore had been indicted on August 16, 2007 with Leon S. Heard, Steven I. Helfgott, Robert McNair, Mark C. Olds along with other defendants involved in a mortgage fraud, securities fraud, money laundering, wire fraud, interstate transportation of stolen property and conspiracy to acquire millions in dollars

Brandon King vetoes East Cleveland’s appropriation law before he got it from council in the most crazed, self-dealing veto this writer as an ex-mayor has ever seen

The most audit of East Cleveland's finances is from 2014 and shows Mayor Brandon King and Gary Norton weren't requiring employees to record the times they started and stopped working.

CLEVELAND, OH – Richmond Heights resident Brandon King’s continued illegal presence in the office of East Cleveland mayor has created yet another problem for the city.  King doesn’t know it, but Michael Smedley and Belinda Kyle told friends when he was campaigning for the seat against Una Keenon and Devin Branch that he was “too dumb” for the job.  King’s latest veto of the 2021 appropriations ordinance gives their words an air of knowing credibility. I don’t know King and have only met him in passing three or four times in life.  Maybe.  The most we’ve said to each other
