The Democratic Patronage Mill

Rachel Barnhart names the names, and tells the story the Democrat and Chronicle hasn't the integrity to print.

Update: This is the second time in recent days that Rachel Barnhart has pointed out this topic:

I’ve always felt ... [Maggie] Brooks was held to a higher standard in the press than Democratic officials. If the parking ticket scandal had happened to the county sheriff’s and not city police, it would have been tossed into her scandal pile. But something tells me Mayor Tom Richards won’t be dinged. Democrats are guilty of some of the very same things identified with Brooks’ administration, but they’re not raked over the coals to the same extent. (Anyone want a piece of downtown land for $1 to build luxury condos?)
