One day after the shock and awe turn-in of 19,803 signatures to place the Parking Plot referendum on the ballot, Yvette Simpson tried to justify before Willie Cunningham on 700 WLW Council's attempt to avoid a vote on the issue. Cunningham accused Simpson of voter suppression, a charge she really could not rebut. This past Friday, he also confronted her with her hypocrisy on opposing referenda, but supporting a public vote on S.B. 5., a charge she really could not rebut.
But the sweetest part of the interview certainly was Simpson revealing a glimpse of her imperial attitude: "there are going to be people...who do not have the aptitude to understand the deal." Priceless. Listen to the entire interview here. The priceless, condescending quote starts around 3:00.
