I am not being paid by the Bee to say this

Wow, Bites is on fire!  And he's woken the sleeping Bee up, too.  How's this for a quote, from K.J.'s attorney,

"People are curious about all sorts of things, that doesn’t mean they have a right to know them,” said Hiestand. “There are a lot of nosy people, the K.J. haters, who have nothing better to do than to ask for more than the law requires. But we have no plans to deviate from what the law requires.”
Doesn’t the public deserve more disclosure than that? Bites asked. After all, this is the mayor of the city.
“What the public deserves is what the law requires. If the public wants more disclosure, the public should change the law,” Hiestand said.

Okayyy.  That really sounds like someone with nothing to hide!  We need to throw this fucking bum out.  And meanwhile, instead of being in Sac to deal with the heat he's getting, K.J. is at the DNC.  He's a fake Democrat, what the fuck is he there for?  Oh yeah, to schmooze and get donations, the things he's best at. 

I know this is a flip-flop for me, but can I urge you all the subscribe to the Bee?  Hear me out: it's imperfect, yes, but it's still the best place to get your day-to-day news about Sacramento.  Also, and this is highly subjective, but I really look forward to reading it every day over coffee.  Sure, sometimes that takes less than 5 minutes, but for the price, that's not bad.  And, New York Times crossword puzzle.  C'mon.  It's like 3 or 4 bucks a week.  Try it!

The term "haters" also appears in a letter to the editor defending Johnson. That seems to be one of their new defense tactics: suggest that anyone who disagrees with anything KJ does is just a hater, so not worth arguing against. The "nothing better to do" part of the quote that you emphasize is meant to send the same message: if you disagree with Johnson, your opinion is not even worth considering.

I read online occasionally but I publicly broke up with the Bee (in the letters section) over their anti-union stance.

Ha ha, I probably shouldn't have said that with my blog name, since they run my stuff all the time. D'oh!
