After a brief round of astonishingly softball questions, the Lane County Commissioners have sent Bloomberg stooge, Val Hoyle, to continue in private life. They have chosen Jim Manning to take Chris Edwards’ vacated Senate seat. The final vote was 2-3 with Bozievich and Leiken voting in favor of Hoyle, and Farr, Stewart and Sorenson voting for Manning.

Commissioner Jay Bozievich gushed about his close working relationship with Hoyle and his cooperation with her to get driver’s licenses for people with “green card issues.” He noted that the overwhelming number of emails he received about this appointment were against Hoyle and said he would “ignore that noise.”

Sid Leiken was “impressed” with the questions the commission asked and by all three candidates. He said he “did not give a damn” about the emails he got opposing Hoyle.

Republican Commissioner Pat Farr shared how he walked door to door to elect Val Hoyle for her House seat (yes, he said that.)  but he did not want to squander the opportunity to send an African American to be the first black Senator from Lane County. (He was talking about Jim Manning, the winner.)

Bozievich responded to this by saying he supported Hoyle even though he had a black roommate in college and two black people in his wedding party. (No, we are not making this up.)

Make no mistake, Jim Manning is no friend of gun owners and has the endorsement of far left organizations, but what he does not have is a quarter million of Bloomberg’s money.

Today was a great victory in keeping Hoyle away from the legislature. Thank you to everyone who made this happen. 

To Bozievich and Leiken, who have both sought help from OFF in the past, rest assured we will do all we can to see that you are replaced.
