Of course, when I asked for evidence, they could provide none. When I asked for proof, they went away. I'd guess they just don't like this guy, for some reason. Why don't all you naysayers come forward? Punk asses.

Thank you; and I stand by my earlier comment: he has accomplished absolutely nothing.

Can't say as I can find anything too troubling in that bio. Maybe the others are just making oysters, when they could be squeezing out some juice?

I happen to agree with happyrock. Gary Sherrer is a doofus. Civics must think he knows something the rest of us do not. Please inform us.

I think it's civics that's been at the oxygen starvation end of the gene pool for too long. It's easy to make incendiary statements such as he/she/it has made, without any real facts to back it up.

Enlighten me, please. By the way, being Lt. Governor is not an accomplishment. I will eagerly await the response from the Gary Dufus fanclub.

Well Happyrock you obviously have no idea or clue of Mr. Sherrer's past accomplishments both in the public and private sectors. I will not waste our time listing them for you as I want you to continue to live in your shallow end of the gene pool and ignore all facts that might actually give you an informed opinion.

Well, Homey let's see. I hold a real job, I pay my taxes and give of my time and money. You must subscribe to the Gary Sherrer motto: If you can't work, teach and if you can't teach, work for the government.

I guess being a moron qualifies you to be Chairman of the Board of Regents.
