Avel Gordly Talks to Just Out; Doesn't Make a Lot of Sense

Posted by Wm.™ Steven Humphrey on Thu, Jan 21, 2010 at 8:37 AM

In an "interview" strangely shy of quotes, Just Out writer Amanda Schurr sat down with former senator Avel Gordly—chief petitioner and the face of "Total Recall Recall II: The Reckoning"—who surprisingly, didn't seem to have a lot to say. You'll remember that Gordly didn't even show up to file the paperwork at the City Auditor's office yesterday, and seems to be keeping a pretty low profile for someone whose campaign needs strong word of mouth and media attention to be successful. You can read it all here, but the most revealing parts of the "interview" were as follows: that the recall campaign plans to use somewhere between 25-30 paid signature gatherers (as opposed to the 700 volunteers that were supposedly called upon last time), and that Gordly grudgingly admits that Adams' tenure so far has been "somewhat effective." Soooooo, if that's the case… why exactly is she even putting a moderate amount (and I'm being generous) of energy into this?

“I believe in forgiveness,” Gordly concluded, “but I also believe in accountability, and the character and integrity of our city…. When we know better, we do better. We now know, so we need to [get this on the ballot and go from there] to do better.”

I have no idea what she's talking about. Do you know what she's talking about? Anybody else suspect this might be a problem for the campaign?
