Josh Stanley's twitter excuse is an insult to everyone's intelligence (part 1)

UPDATE for the media: My appologies to reporters who were trying to contact me. All media inquires can be directed to me at ctblogger@yahoo.com.

Wow, simply wow!

Here's what Josh Stanley said to the News-Times about his LONG history of racist and highly misogynistic Twitter posts.

I never would have expected myself to be in this positon where I would actually have to filter my thoughts..."
Filter your thoughts...so in other words, you never thought you would be in a posisiton where you couldn't express your TRUE feelings...classy.

But wait, wait...there's more!

Stanley, who was encouraged to run by his mother, Colleen Stanley, a member of the City Council, and Boughton, a seven term mayor, said he knew enough to go to his Twitter account to remove offensive posts as soon as he was nominated in May.

"I knew my stance on the social media aspect had to change," he said during an interview Tuesday night, before he cancelled his Twitter account. "I knew I could not be this person and run for office, so I took down stuff that was inappropriate."

Really Josh, you seriously thought about your tweets when you thought about running for office...well can he expalin this tweet that was done days before he was nominated?

There is MUCH more to come...prepare to be more outraged!

When living in S. Africa, I learned the ANC has the ANC party and the ANC Youth League. A person in the party is considered a member of the Youth League until the age of 35. The Youth League has its own programs but its primary goal is to support the ANC. Perhaps Mr. Stanley should follow this model. Take the next several years supporting his fellow republicans and demonstrate an approach to public office that does not require an apology

On September 26, 2007, ten plaintiffs filed suit in response to an arrest of aday laborers at a public park in Danbury, Connecticut. Plaintiffs amended their complaint on November 26, 2007.

The amended complaint states that plaintiffs sought to remedy the continued discriminatory and unauthorized enforcement of federal immigration laws against the Latino residents of the City of Danbury by Danbury's mayor and its police department.

Plaintiffs allege that the arrests violated their Fourth Amendment rights and the Connecticut Constitution because defendants conducted the arrests without valid warrants, in the absence of exigent circumstances, and without probable cause to believe that plaintiffs were engaged in unlawful activity. In addition, plaintiffs allege that defendants improperly stopped, detained, investigated, searched and arrested plaintiffs. Plaintiffs also allege that defendants violated their Fourteenth Amendment rights when they intentionally targeted plaintiffs, and arrested and detained them on the basis of their race, ethnicity and perceived national origin. Plaintiffs raise First Amendment, Due Process and tort claims.

Plaintiffs request declaratory relief, damages and attorneys fees.
