Let Walter Debate!

Former Congressional candidate and LA County Seal crusader David Hernandez had submitted a letter to the Daily News about the upcoming mayoral debate. As many of you hoped, he has chided all of the challengers and not just Mayor Poopy. As well, he asks that that minor candidate Walter Moore be allowed to participate.

Let’s see, a failed Police Chief, two Assemblyman who governed during the 12 billion State surplus turning into 35 billion dollar deficit and a State Senator who was and is still in office during the worst period for small business, big business or any kind of business in California, are upset because the Mayor won't debate them. What is there to debate about? Your past performances speak louder and clearer than anything your high priced spin doctors can come up with. Those who are really outraged are the public who have not heard from the “lesser known candidates” If you really want to hear fresh, honest and ideas not encumbered by special interest ties, let Walter Moore debate.

Now I know some of you out there think Walter Moore is some kind of loser who doesn't measure up to your self-important standards. And yes, he has not managed to yet get bought and paid for by the various special interests in town. But he has managed to get some press and capture some attention. Yes, the debate hosts have a right to invite whomever they want. But any citizen has a right to run and I believe the voters have a right to hear them. And quite frankly the press has an obligation to report on them without making judgements as to their viability. I am not necessarily in favor of Walter, but for Christ sakes, let the kid debate. If he makes a fool of himself, so be it. If he makes a fool of Mayor Poopy, Bitter Bernie, Tony Villar et al, even better.

Let's hear what Walter has to say. Give him the chance to shove his foot in his mouth before you do for him.

Nicely said David Hernandez. However, let's face it, Walter Moore sounds like an idiot and have you seen his webpage? With Latinos being the majority in this city is he out of his mind wanting law enforcement to go after illegal immigrant? Many would like that but it just isn't going to happen in LA. Nice try

It is the desire to mitigate present circumstances that makes Moore an ideal choice.

I agree. If they don't let Moore debate, they give him an issue he can hang his hat on. On the other hand, if they let him debate and he crashes and burns, then he is no longer an issue.

Stand up for democracy and let the guy join the debate. Do we limit who can vote based on whether they're views are mainstream enough?
