Quite an article in the Lost Coast Outpost yesterday. Turns out Chet Albin had a drug induced rage-fest at Arts Alive:
Is it surprising that Albin went off on a local artist because he felt entitled to campaign on a certain portion of the Gazebo? Not at all. This is just what one would expect from an appointed Crony who feels entitled to his position. The hubris would be astounding in many places, but not in Eureka. In Eureka, the Mayor and Police Chief can conduct Christian Prayer breakfasts using public funds.
According to the story, “Fritz remains upset by this series of events, which he sees as highly political. “They were playing the arrogant authority,” he said. “They really did hurt my feelings and do owe me a public apology.”
Good luck with that! Albin lied to Fritz by telling Fritz he would be making a public apology. Albin lied to the public when he claimed to be a democrat (he is a die-hard tea party republican). Albin lied to the Lost Coast Outpost; “Reached by phone this morning, Albin denied agreeing to make a public apology. “Absolutely not,” he said. “That is not true.” On top of that, if you can’t get the entire council to agree on apologizing for the massacre of the indigenous Wiyot in Eureka, how could a single member of the Klown Council be expected to apologize to an “asshole” who was bold enough to stay in a spot that Albin claimed belonged to the City Council.
Apparently, in Eureka, a council member facing re-election who’s part of the Crony Crew doesn’t have to worry about putting on pretenses. Albin certainly didn’t. First off, he went to the Gazebo to campaign while under the influence and out of control. “He was on too many drugs, he told us numerous times,” Fritz said. “He knew he shouldn’t have been there. He knew that he was out of control and in the wrong.” Fritz’s account of Albin’s statements was corroborated by Pearcy, Bourque and McDonald.” Secondly, knowing that there were independent witnesses who could tell the truth of the meeting and confrontation, Albin went ahead and lied to the Outpost. LIED. Makes one wonder what he lies about when there’s no way to disprove him on his Council seat.
According to Fritz, “Chet, after me asking nicely for a them [Albin & Newman] to move, Albin comes over to me, gets two-and-a-half inches from me, starts calling me an asshole, tells me Eureka City Council doesn’t need people like me in their town and he’s going to have me arrested.”
Chet, you’re so wrong. You’re either Intoxicated with power, just plain intoxicated or both, either way the real truth is the Eureka City Council and the Citizens don’t need a jerk like you.
