In case you do not know this knuckle-dragger’s story, when he’s not being arrested for missing jury duty Mike Franco has been a serial candidate and serial loser in almost every election for the past decade or so running for a number of posts from Governor’s Council, State Senate, State Representative, Animal Control Officer – and now he’s running for At-Large City Council in Holyoke. Nobody is really certain where he lives because he’s run from East Longmeadow, Springfield, Chicopee and Holyoke. Franco is an MRA, Donald Trump fan, Conspiracy Theorist, Tea Party Extremist and an adult man that cannot grow a decent mustache. As you’d expect his platform is something like : everyone that does not work is lazy, feminism is worse than Nazism, Obama the “socialist” is building reeducation camps and everyone that does not agree with Mike Franco should move to France. That’s him in a nutshell (pun intended).
Many may remember that wonderful hot mic indecent back in October of 2013 where misogynists Todd Murphy McGee and Daniel Breezy-D Bresnahan let the world know what kind of assholes they are when they spoke the truth at a time that they thought nobody could hear. It was comedy, but it was also very disturbing… My recording of this event was picked up by local and regional news, some popular feminist and some political blogs. It really shamed these two man-children as they deserved but it also exposed what is most certainly a hostile work environment inside those council chambers. Now, almost two years later and as promised a much needed training was scheduled for all on City Council to attend.
So, here is Franco’s first salvo at who he’s deemed to be a political opponent. As a result of the the training that Franco calls “forced and potentially iron-fisted indoctrination training” and councilor Jossie Valentin’s suggestion that the session be open to the public he lashes out at her:
What a fucking jerk, huh? He’d certainly fit in with those other two morons in council… that is if he could ever win. I can only assume that he’s just comic relief in this election… not very good at it, but he tries his best.
