Re: “At Caucus, Burlington Dems Back Progressive Council Prez Knodell

Genese Grill got caught trying to run a dirty campaign and stir up negativity against her opponent by impersonating an anonymous commenter online, and her defense is that she's been using her real name on her campaign page? I would certainly hope so! If she *really* wanted to use her own name, surely she could easily find the account info button at the top of this very page?

However, this appears similar to her usual modus operandi of relentlessly spamming the Front Porch Forum with anti-mall material, which many believe led to that campaign's failure because people were put off by her long-winded posts there, often exceeding 10-15 pages daily. This abuse of public forums is quite in keeping with the political strategies of a post-Trump era. Grill also tried to sabotage Bernie's campaign by smearing his wife during the election because of a personal grudge over being unceremoniously fired from her last academic post, years ago. She didn't care if Bernie, whom she supported, lost; her only small-minded and petty goal was to keep Jane Sanders out of the White House as First Lady (see http://www.sevendaysvt.com/vermont/jane-says-sanders-secret-weapon-or-a-political-liability/Content?oid=2670992).

However, if she doesn't get her way, we may expect to see this city council hopeful collapsing on the floor of the police station in tears again, which is where she was observed last summer after another failed campaign to stop the air show. Burlington, please dig deeper and ask yourselves who you really want having access to city government?
