Do as I say, not as I do.
We’re used to that sort of attitude from Democrats, and apparently Ed Fitzgerald is no different.
In January, we told you that he issued an edict to his staff that they better spell his name correctly, or he would refuse to sign the document and send it back. They were warned that the proper way to put his name was “Edward FitzGerald”, and don’t you dare forget the captial G.
“Effective immediately, regardless of deadlines or emergencies, Ed will no longer sign letters, contracts, documents, etc. that does not have his name spelled properly (Edward FitzGerald),” FitzGerald’s administrative assistant Tanya Hairston wrote.
“Additionally, please remember that his last name does have a capital G and should be used accordingly. I have also be informed to please return any documents that does not conform with his instructions to the sender.”
So, yesterday, I received an email from Edwerd with the subject “A Big Announcement!”. On Wednesday of next week, he will visit the three Cs to officially announce his campaign to be Ohio’s next governor. He really wants us to attend. But look at how he signed the email.
He signed it “Ed Fitzgerald”. In case you think I altered the image, the Cleveland Plain Dealer picked up on it, too.
He admonished his own staff about how to spell his name, and then ignores his own direction in the biggest announcement so far of his ambitious campaign. Is this the best Ohio Democrats can come up with to challenge Kasich? Another corrupt Cuyahoga County politician, who wants out of the county so bad that he plays on Facebook during council meetings?
What a clown.
