'Corrupt' is probably too strong. And 'special-interestized' doesn't get past my spell check. I guess we'll borrow the characterization made by a Democratic lunch companion the other day: "In the pocket of developers."
This lifelong Democrat was a little chagrined at admitting that he had voted for Horiuchi, but he had a specific reason he couldn't get out of. We understand. We used to vote for Horiuchi, enthusiastically in fact, but the list of questionable transactions just got too tiresome.
We would prefer a 5-4 Democratic majority on the council, but we can't vote for someone whose integrity we seriously question. This DeBry guy might be a novice, but right now, Horiuchi's experience is the bigger problem.
