An Ohio man seeking the nomination for Stark County Treasurer has a complete meltdown during a campaign speech. Phil Davison is currently a councilman in the village of Minerva, Ohio, population 3,934.
He began his speech by introducing himself and telling the audience that he has four degrees from the University of Akron — two bachelors, in history and sociology, and two masters, in communication and public administration. Davidson has worked in factories, at the local Target Store and, for eight years, as a bailiff at the Stark County Court of Common Pleas. For reasons not yet known, he left that position as a court bailiff last year, and has been unable to find work since.
While you can detect an agitated tone right from the start, Davidson soon began shouting "I WILL NOT APOLOGIZE FOR MY TONE TONIGHT. I HAVE BEEN A REPUBLICAN IN TIMES GOOD! AND I HAVE BEEN A REPUBLICAN IN TIMES BAD!"
As Davidson's shouting continued, there was complete silence except for a few moments of laughter.
In a common "Second Amendment" theme adopted by Republican candidates, Davidson shouted "IF NOMINATED TONIGHT, I WIN! - TELL YOUR FRIENDS! - TELL YOUR NEIGHBORS! - TELL RANDY GONZALES I'M COMING! - BOTH BARRELS, GUNS LOADED!"
He makes a $260-a-week stipend as a Minerva councilman, which adds up to roughly $12,480 a year. “I certainly can’t live on that, but that’s all I’m doing right now.”
Not to be a "Gloomy Gus" but, loosing your job in 2009 is unfortunate, leaving a job in 2009 without another job lined up requires a level of stupidity not compatable for a "treasurer" of anything. I'm just saying.
