St. Pete’s worst City Councilman, Wengay Newton, officially endorses the worst candidate for Mayor, Kathleen Ford

One demagogue has voted for another, as City Councilman Wengay Newton just posted on Facebook that he has voted for Kathleen Ford for Mayor.

“Just picked up a ballot and VOTED for Kathleen Ford Mayor and YES to Stop The Lens on the Aug. 27th primary at the Supervisor of Elections Office 500 1st Ave. North,” writes Newton.

In case you are having any difficulty deciding who to vote for for Mayor, just consider the prospect of Newton on Council with Ford in the Mayor’s office.

I shudder to think.
