She could take a lesson from Bass in class. Should have thanked her opponents and their supporters.
Re-read the first sentence. Though she doesn't thank her opponents, she thanks everyone who voted in the election.
No, she thanks everyone who voted for HER. You read the letter again.
9:38. I totally agree. Virginia named Kerrigan and his supporters and said she heard their concerns. Fleming basicaly said "screw everyone else. Now I can do what I want". She didn't disappoint.
Hahahahahaha. What did you expect!?!?!?!? Long live the queen. She said what she had to say in order to get elected. Get over it. She played the game better. The "I'm not a polotition" line was a nice touch. But she plays one on TV
You people are a sad combination of vile and pathetic. Believe I'll have a beer and bask in contemplating your misery. Soooo tasty.
Thank you all who voted for me, thank you all who gave me money. The rest of you can kiss my ass.Signed sincerely Maggie kiss my ass Fleming.
I think it's hilarious. Fleming duped a lot of people.
Poor babies. You lost. Your candidates were losers.Signed--- 60 percent of the voters. You really think you are smarter than the rest of us? póg mo thóin
6:41PM It does not matter what she would have said, you would not have been satisfied. What you might think about is what she can accomplish over the next four years. Give her the benefit of the doubt, give her a chance, if in four years you are not convinced, vote for someone else.
Anon 9:34 "Your candidates were losers"? Maggie, that's you, isn't it? The answer is "no". They lost but they are not losers. Well Arnie Klein was a bit of a loser.
Arnie will remain a loser. Even though his close supporters bad mouthed Fleming behind her back, she will welcome them with open arms because to her face they sing a different tune.
I have to agree with Mike, give her time, and give her a chance - you may be surprised.It won't be easy - and she will need your good energy.
If she wants time maybe she shouldn't call her opponents losers.
As if Ms. Fleming were the one posting, the which she is not. Ms. Fleming is a person of grace and manners. She has some supporters, though, who are more than willing to counterpunch. So, people who think they can insult, lie, distort, put whiny post election comments on facebook pages and generally act like sore losers without getting a reaction are kidding themselves. You will get called out. Meanwhile, as Rose notes, time will tell. If you want the DA's office to fail, you will be disappointed.
As opposed to you who can lie, distort and attack opponents and their supporters on this blog.
Fleming may have manners. I think she showed her lack of grace in this letter. I'm more concerned about the deciet and lies me self. That and her history with CAST and skirting coating finance rules
Klien was one of 3 candidates who lost the DA election, But he's had a long and reasonably distingushed career, and whatever you nthink of him, defining him by that one circumstance is silly.
And he is a buffoon who barely mustered 5 percent if the vote. 1/5th of Firpo and 1/10th of Fleming.
Maggie is a wonderful person. It pains me that a very small minority continue to talk trash about her. Maggie was an extremely effective deputy DA. She won the election by an overwhelming majority, beyond a landslide. She will be a great DA. Give her just half a chance and she will impress you all, even though some may never be able to admit it.
She has had chance after chance to show she has class. She had chance after chance to run a clean campaign. She failed.I do not trust her.
Supporters like Mike are what lost her support. She used him to make up flat out lies about opponents.
The original point was that Fleming lacks the class of Virginia Bass. It was pointed out in the campaign. She shows it again here. She says shes not a politician but she used sleazy political tricks to get elected.She had people like Mike, Max and Joel slime her opponents. She could have helped herself if she was graceful but she did what she always did.
anon 5:27PM you must be richardMaggie ran a sqeaky clean campaign, but then you know that.URanAH
9:39 You must be Mielke or Losey. Get a life.
This blog has turned into a cesspool of Firpo Dollison trolls (or maybe it's just one troll, but ugh).
Why do you read the blog and why do you comment?If it is untrue, walk away. The fact that you keep responding is telling.
maybe troll richard?
Maybe it is you making all the comments?
Comments are open, but moderated, for the time-being. Good luck.
