My cameraman asked Steve if we could come this morning and film and interview some of the people harassing him, and he didn’t want us to, then he calls a press conference and invites the ‘real’ media;
Hildebrand says for the last two weeks, his business has been visited by large groups of people who’ve disrupted staff and other customers.Â Hildebrand believes the missionaries behind movement are connected to the payday loan industry.
Floyd Pickett is the organizer and says he’s here to do homeless outreach. Â He says the people he’s bringing in are paying customers who aren’t doing anything wrong. Â He has plans to bring in even more people. Â On Wednesday, he says he’ll bring in a bus of 150 people.
Hildebrand says he believes Pickett works for the man who owns North American Title Company.
Of courseÂ there isÂ ‘obvious’ reasons why this is going on, Pitty Patt Powwers couldn’t resist to spin this being about helping the homeless and elitism;
It seems more than a bit elitist and snobbish to complain that these paying customers are being hauled in by his political opponents who are buying them food there.
So Patt, how many bumper stickers your campaign store business sold to Planned Parenthood and The Freethinkers? You know the business you were ‘unethically’ running while working for the SOS on the taxpayer’s dime. That’s right, you are Republican, you’ll take money from a dead guy as long as the check clears, doesn’t matter if you earned it or not.
This is truly hardball politics that have nothing to do with helping the homeless or missionaries. There is a part of me that feels sorry for Steve, but I also believe in KARMA. Steve’s political sins of the past may finally be catching up with him (you know, like getting Huether elected). BTW, why don’t you give your old meal ticket a call and see if you will help you out, or better yetÂ your pal BarryÂ in the White House.
I also find this ironic on another level, it doesn’t hurt to have a homeless shelter a few blocks away from his establishment for easy access to them, I have always felt that was a bad location for the shelter, and I bet Steve is thinking the same thing now.
At the end of the day, I will admit, this is fun to watch, gutter politics at it’s best.
