John Flynn sent out an editorial to me and other local media. I don't live in John Flynn's or Steve Bennett's district so I don't know all the details but I figured I'd post it.

I ran into John Flynn last summer and he said that he reads my blog. I appreciate it Mr. Flynn.

Republicans love when Democrats go after each other.

I'm not a big John Flynn fan, but compared to Steve Bennett I'll take Flynn. Steve Bennett has the biggest ego I have ever seen. I am a Republican who voted for Bennett but I assure you I would vote for anyone but Bennett now.
Flynn's right about Bennett's inability to listen or work with anyone. It's time to move him out.

John Flynn has no idea what he's talking about or doing. I don't like Steve Bennett, but on one hand he rips Bennett and on the other heaps praise on Foy. John, do you even know what state your in ?
