To his credit, Marshall makes no attempt at faking his being unbiased and objective. He very much has an agenda in everything that he writes. Based on The New Wentzvillian's analysis of Larry Marshall's musings, it would appear that he is an operative for either Leon Tow or, maybe, Darrel Lackey (both Wentzville Mayoral Candidates). Mr. Marshall does not hide this either; going so far as to post, apparently for free, the fundraising invitations for those candidates that he favors.
The New Wentzvillian reached mayoral candidate Tow today who said that "everyone has their opinion and a right to express it." He went on to say that, because they're only opinions, he is pretty much neutral when it comes to Larry Marshall's on-line writings. When pressed by the New Wentzvillian as to whether Tow might want to distance himself from Larry Marshalls negative blogging about Wentzville politicians, Tow again said those are just opinions and everyone, including Tow, can start an on-line blog at any time.
The New Wentzvillian also reached out to Darrell Lackey and Bill Schuette. Lackey hasn't responded as of the time of this story, but Schuette said, interestingly, that he "stays off [Larry Marshall's] website because he thinks it gave [his] computer a virus during the same time that the City of Wentzville allegedly shut down access to Larry Marshall's on-line blog on all government computers" for virus reasons. Schuette added that he thinks Larry Marshall's on-line blogging would be fine if he "told the truth" and made it more clear that Larry Marshall is the one writing the on-line blog. He found the "Anonymous" comments on Larry Marshall's blog a bit troubling too.
Then there's mayoral candidate Nick Guccione. There is no doubt that Guccione should be no fan of Larry Marshall's on-line blogging. Marshall openly shows his disdain for Guccione by only writing the alderman's name in the Marshall on-line blog with a line through it --
Guccione points out that he has a thick skin, but worries somewhat, like Schuette, about the misinformation and anonymity with which Larry Marshall operates.
Marshall's latest blog attacks Guccione's recent campaign mailer and says that it is a "campaign mailer disguised as a questionnaire." The New Wentzvillian has obtained a version of Guccione's mailer for your review below. You be the judge (we'll add a poll at the top left of this news service), is this piece "disguised"?
This disguise is reminiscent of the kid who won't wear his costume's mask after about the first five minutes on Halloween night.
