Kudos to the Beacon...

Since I have given the Beacon flack before I have to give them credit for the story they did about Weisner's fundraising and how it relates to getting paid by the city. A little dispointed they ran it on the Sunday of a holiday weekend but still...

There are two interesting tidbits

A majority -- 58 -- received city payments before Weisner's term, but only eight gave any money to his two-term predecessor, David Stover, the records show.

Also 

"A number like that doesn't faze me," Weisner campaign manager Mike Wilson responded when asked about the number of donors who earned city funds. "It's a tough question, and I don't think it's a fair question.

Sorry Mike, it is a fair question.  I am looking forward to an answer.
