The 'Softer Side' of Mayor Eric Brewer and a Twofer for East Cleveland Ohio
Just when you think you've seen everything in politics, along comes another whacked out story about one of those we have appointed as one of our political leaders.
This story comes from East Cleveland, Ohio. That's where the current Mayor, Eric Brewer, seems to be quite overexposed; and, just before Tuesday's vote for his reelection.
No, he didn't 'streak' or unzip in public. Instead, he was caught cross-dressing in some very provocative lingerie poses (Click to See Full Story: Mayor Eric Brewer's Lingerie Photos Put Reelection Campaign in Jeopardy").
The following is an Action News 19 broadcast regarding the Mayor's little problem:
All indications are that Mayor Brewer is doing a fine job. So, what if he has a kinky side to him? He's actually helping the East Cleveland business community by broadening his buying activities in both men's and women's specialty stores. After all, women's clothing and accessories -- especially makeup -- can be quite expensive. I'll bet he didn't pay off-the-shelf prices for those 'pumps' in a man's size. And, let's not forget, Mayor Brewer could better address woman's issues than his opponent because he does seem to have that 'softer side' to him.
All kidding aside, I'm not sure, if I happeneded to be an East Cleveland resident, if I would either vote against or for Brewer to stay on as Mayor. Those pictures are rather embarrassing and, because of that, they might actually compromise his ability to lead the city. However, looking at his T-shirted and very much younger opponent (as seen in that video), I'm not sure that voting for Eric Brewer should be out of the question.
In politics, the choice is always between one of two concepts: Either picking the better of the two candidates or, more often than not, selecting the lesser of two evils. In this case, though, I'm not sure what choice voters will be making.
