Councilman Jim Motznik yesterday publicly accused Operations Director Art Victor of trying to manipulate the selection process to boost one candidate -- apparently Deputy Director Mike Gable -- over current Acting Director Robert Kaczorowski. Mayor Luke Ravenstahl said he was "a little bit disturbed" at the process. Councilman William Peduto urged against a "witch hunt" against Mr. Victor. (P-G, Rich Lord)
Sure there's more important news -- libraries closing, gubernatorial candidates announcing -- but let's get this strangeness out of the way quickly. Motznik lighting up the administration in public? Victor fiddling with his own irons? At least the Mayor is still out of the loop, or I'd feel like we fell into another dimension.
