Say it ain't so, Shameless Joe. Joe Galligan is indeed doubling down in his effort to run unopposed for Controller. When it comes to short circuiting democracy at taxpayer expense for his own benefit, Joe Galligan is clearly the most qualified.

It appears that Joe Galligan is pioneering a new way to run for office. Never mind running a campaign to try to win votes; just let the taxpayers pay the court costs for your lawsuit and appeal to clear the ballot of any choice but yourself for elected office. Vladimir Putin could learn a thing or two from Shameless Joe.

What's next Shameless Joe? If your appeal is denied, are you going to go to the State of California Supreme Court? No doubt the taxpayers will be happy to fund you.

The State Court of Appeal just denied Galligan!

Wow, that was quick! What's the betting line on whether or not Shameless Joe goes for strike three by filing an appeal with the California Supreme Court? As a taxpayer, I can place a bet on Shameless Joe striking out and at least recoup the taxes I've already spent funding Shameless Joe's legal whiffs.
