Mayor Subprime requests a meeting w/ private citizen over parodies of him

You would think Mike would be used to the hassling by now, but it is all about controlling the message I guess. He has told me several times he doesn’t believe in censorship. Well Mike, what would you call dragging a private citizen into a meeting with you after he posted parody photos of you on his Facebook page? Grow a thicker skin.

JT Nelson talks about his meeting on Facebook;

JT Nelson I’m not going to say much… but let’s just say he didn’t offer me a job, NOR does he find this funny. [walking away with tail between legs].

• So much for being Grand Poo-Ba of the St. Patty’s Day parade. Did he take away your birthday?

JT Nelson Pretty much. I think I’m grounded.

• You’ve stained the family name. I’m thinking JT Jelinkovic will be your new name.

• Hope you charged him for your time.

JT Nelson I thinking about the last name “Timberlake”…. JTT. I like the sound of that. Maybe I’ll run for mayor.

• Well to put it this way in my opinion, he needs to realize he is a public figure and his actions on national tv reflect our community. In other words, when your a public official, don’t be dancing around pointing at people like a teenager on crack. Too bad I can’t find a video of it online.

• I am kind of surprised he didn’t find the humor in it. It was all in fun, and he is probably embarassed because he realized how ridiculous he looked. I noticed it while watching the game too. I hope he wasn’t too tough on you. You are not banished from SF for life, I hope!

Here are a few of my faves

Now I am worried about my 32 ounce sodas…. All cameras on Daugaard Saturday night at the State AA Champion game…It is only fair!

We’re forced to contend with his ego propaganda. He should accept our opinion of him. However, there’s no constitutional freedom inside city limits. Smile at him in person but denegrate him in public. Heil Huether!

Top Picture:
It’d be a disaster except I did it on purpose to make room for more nothing at the falls.

Bottom Picture:
When we can’t book the events center, we’ll use our north africans for cage fighting.

Whenever a person chooses to become a public official, they should either be extremely careful of their actions, even when having fun, or be aware of the fact that somebody is going to find something about them to ridicule. He should grow up.

Who is JT Nelson? And does MMM have people scouring Facebook to see if anything negative is posted about him?

#6 hmr59 on 03.15.13 at 7:53 pm

Well, it seems as if hizzoner’s addiction to TV cameras came back to bite him on the ass. Fer chrissakes, get a frickin’ sense of humor and a thicker skin or get the hell out of politics!

#7 JT Nelson on 03.15.13 at 9:39 pm

To be completely fair, he didn’t call me into his office for this. I coincidentally had a prior meeting scheduled for this morning. I decided to come clean thinking he’d see the humor in this… Oh boy, was I mistaken.

If the Mayor of this city gave someone a scowling (online or in person) for what was printed about him, this should be made public. Just what was said, what is the relationship to the mayor does this person have, when did this happen and how/whom was this person contacted by for this meeting? Enough with the innuendo’s,what the fuck happened if it really happened. No one should be strong armed by a local politician for shit said online.

Could this be Mayor Mikes brother?–nba.html

Come on Mike… You told me you read this blog… Bring me in for a good dress down.

JT, thanks for the clarification and laffs. To tell you the truth, I think your parodies are clean fun, way cleaner then what I do. And I know the position you are in, I had a VM from Mike one time that was over the top.

Did this piece run on ksfy or did MMM have it pulled?

#12 scott on 03.16.13 at 10:13 am

Said MMM to Mohamad Ali, “No, I’m the greatest!”

#13 Poly43 on 03.16.13 at 12:27 pm

Did this piece run on ksfy or did MMM have it pulled?

KSFY ran a short “teaser” lead-in on News @ 5 on Thursday. A longer story interviewing both mmm and JT was to air later that night on News @ 10. Did not happen.

#14 Scott on 03.16.13 at 1:24 pm

Sorry, that’s not a story. Imagine if our local news covered every time a local leader was pissed at a citizen. Scott would be on the news every day!

#15 Ol' Timer on 03.16.13 at 2:31 pm

I saw it also and comment to the wife that I could not believe that the Mayor of Sioux Falls would seat himself between the talking heads and point at his junk.

Maybe when the WWE comes to town but the Summit League. At the least very inappropriate, if trying to be funny then you better be able to take the heat afterwards.

#16 Pathloss on 03.17.13 at 3:03 pm

I like Scott #12. 3-M is an arrogant ass.

Got a kick out of this interview yesterday;

Besides the BS argument that our poor kids need indoor tennis, coming from the Mayor’s wife (never mentioned in the interview) I found it amusing that they interviewed her behind a news desk. Most if not ever interview on Inside KELO has been in Lazy Boys. Hmmmm.
