Brian Wilson Deposes Mayor of Toledo

Talk show host Brian Wilson toppled Toledo’s Mayor-for-Life Carly Finkbeiner today.

Another career politician bites the dust – thanks to the hard work and dogged activism of one of the nation’s most talented talk show hosts.

Wilson has hammered Finkbeiner for the last three years as a talk show host at WSPD and was a leader of a petition drive to recall Finkbeiner from office.

Wilson’s heat became too much for the three-term mayor, who signaled that he would not seek reelection. A primary occurred today to allow Toledo residents to choose a replacement for Good Time Carly.

I hope Brian gets the chance to write up the story of how he brought down this rascal.

    Thanks for the kind words, Jim.
    Will be taking the next week off to annoy the bass at Smith Mountain Lake. Will try to take to take your advice to scribble a cogent account of how it happened, It ain’t pretty – but it could be instructive.

    Oh sure. He tells Jim Bovard, in public forum, about his vacation. But does he ever mention this to his Faithful Legal Department? Nooooo….. I’ll just suck an earful of Dirk and have a brain seizure or something, right?
