Austinites: See the new Clean Austin campaign website supporting the Open Government Online and Clean Water charter amendments on the local May ballot.

Follow details of the campaigns for these two citizen initiatives at the
Open Government Austin blog and the new Clean Water Austin blog.

Using a shadowy watercolor image of Jack Abramoff on the "" website is pathetic demagoguery.

They should be ashamed at resorting to such tawdry sensationalism.

If you say so. On the other hand, I imagine if politicians had to record all their meetings and phone calls with Abramoff on a public website in real time like in the charter amendment, the scandals wouldn't have occurred, certainly not to the same extent. I'll bet it would also slow down some of the Austin City Council's tax giveaways to big companies for the same reason.

It's the Eisenberg Principle: The act of observing a process alters it.

Funny, I thought it looked more like Willie Horton.
