After the viewing the video of the City Council meeting, I have to correct my early story. Kip Billups was not ordered to be removed from the meeting because of his clapping, it was because he refused the Mayor's order to stand. WOW. Even worse than originally reported. Does the Mayor think she is playing some sort of game of Simon Says where she is the dictator and if you don't follow orders, you get arrested?
The City Council knew they fucked and immediately went on a PR campaign to spin the City Council meeting. And local media, as usual, played along. More on that in my next article.
