Covington City Commissioner Steve Frank is getting a little bit of local coverage after posting the following to his Facebook account on Sunday: “Turn out the lights on the Occupiers, I feel like going Taliban on them!!!” Frank yesterday explained in a grammatically challenged response the wildly circular logic behind his statement: “The taliban, through there (sic) eyes are resisting occupation.

Then they passed off a GOP County Party Chairman as an educator’s endorsement. Now, they downright lifting We Are Ohio’s endorsement and passing it off as their own… after calling that grandmother, essentially, a liar just a few days ago.
