The Union-Trib has the goods on Dan Dalager and his sweetheart kitchen deal from Aztec Appliance, whose owners Matthew and Robin Gordon were contesting a violation before the city council.
Maggie says she was offered a free refrigerator but turned it down. Even Stocks had enough sense to recuse himself.
I'd like to see a prosecution.
State law prohibits elected officials from accepting any gift or combination of gifts from the same source worth more than $420 in any one year. Dalager reported accepting no appliance gifts in 2009, on state-required disclosure forms.
The scary thing is the only way this came to light is that Dalager went blabbing about his free kitchen to a reporter. How many good old boys are on the take but not so loose-lipped?
Dalager doesn't even have a campaign web site up. Is he phoning in the election because he thinks he can't lose, or can't win?
