{Any rally attended by Katherine Smith must be questioned!}

The ‘Rally for Talley’ held outside the steps of Anaheim City Hall last week was the latest public display of support for former city attorney Cristina Talley. Since then, there’s been a raging debate on the blogopshere as to the circumstances surrounding her sudden, forced resignation during the January 29 city council meeting. Rally organizers cried foul and the press release for the event claimed she was ousted by the council majority for advising against the controversial $158 million GardenWalk hotel tax giveaway. Her supporters also insist that Talley was in violation of the California Voting Rights Act (CVRA), an allegation made in an ACLU lawsuit claiming Latino political disenfranchisement via an at-large electoral system. And because Talley had that stance, Anaheim’s city council pushed her out. “All I know is that I got that from very, very good reliable sources,” rally organizer Joanne Sosa relayed in an interview on-site. “We feel that they have their agenda,” Sosa added later, referring to the council majority that yaktivists insist pushed Talley out for being a virtuous Adelita. “It’s the Disney agenda. It’s business as usual.”
