Sally Bell viciously attacked
Sally Bell was viciously attacked by the Tulsa World editorial board
in their endorsement of Karen Keith. Here is some of what they had to say.
Sally Bell, the Republican, is a dangerous and angry person who has made a name for herself with one issue.
She believes her family was rooked when its aging amusement park was forced off the Tulsa County fairgrounds and, therefore, county government should be starved one day at a time.
In other words, she's running for spite.
Spite can carry you a long way. It has already carried Bell to a landslide victory over incumbent Commissioner Randy Miller, the frontman for the effort to evict Bell's Amusement Park.
What does Bell have to offer beyond memories of a roller coaster? Very little of substance and nothing of value. She has put forward a radical anti-tax plan that was designed to appeal to the masses, but, if implemented, would endanger basic county services.
It's a recipe for public embarrassment and stalled progress.
The good news is that an endorsement by the Tulsa World is the political kiss of death. We will be talking about this hatchet job Monday on the show.
