Outtakes 6/6/13

VOTE FOR LAU

On Tuesday, June 11, Pensacola, Gulf Breeze and southwest Escambia County will vote for who will replace the late Clay Ford as the state representative for District 2.

Walter Bryan Hill was the surprisingly strong winner of the Republican primary, thanks to outside help from the insurance industry and a series of statewide electioneering communication committees that funded a vicious slander campaign against former Gulf Breeze Mayor Ed Gray, III. There was even one mailer that somehow tied the conservative Gray with Nancy Pelosi and Barack Obama.

It didn’t matter that Walter doesn’t live in District 2. No, Walter lives in Marcus Point, where Clay Ingram is the state representative.

It didn’t matter that Walter changed his name to Mike in 1994 after he was hit with a federal tax lien.

It didn’t matter that Walter doesn’t have any members in his Tea Party of Northwest Florida, which he founded and serves as its president.

Walter won the Republican primary for State House District 2.
