Its the Second Anniversary of the infamous, vile and repudiate "Bullet Between the Eyes Email" by Michael "MEAT" Trujillo.
Happy Second Anniversary MEAT!
** Blogger's note:
Great beautiful Super Bowl Sunday morning to all as we make preparations to view America's greatest sporting spectacle. For this blogger, Super Bowl Sundays will always have a moment of reflection on what transpired two years ago on Super Bowl Sunday in 2011, during the heated CD 14 City Council Contest between City Councilman Jose Huizar and challenger Rudy Martinez. As I many of us associated with the campaign proceedings were making their way to locations of choice to view the game, Martinez Campaign staff were disclosing the Trujillo crafted email below to various media sources
. The story went viral on Monday
and resulted in Trujillo's termination as Councilman Huizar's Campaign Manager.
Trujillo, who is currently associated with the CD 13 City Council Campaign of John Choi,
was quickly forgiven by the machine
but the sting of the email will live on in the Martinez Family, who had lost a member due to gun violence. In closing, as we prep to enjoy the festivities today which includes a performance by the Sandy Hook School Choir, let this email serve as a teachable tool on what constitutes (or not in this email case) appropriate discourse in political dialog, especially in a country that finds itself immerse in grief and debate, in the aftermath of the Sandy Hook Tragedy---Scott Johnson.
This email shall never be forgotten.
Your thoughts ..............
