Ethics Complaint About City Council Member’s Tweets Dismissed

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — An ethics complaint against a Minneapolis City Council member concerning controversial tweets posted during a Black Lives Matter rally has been dismissed.

DFL City Council Member Alondra Cano took part in a Black Lives Matter demonstration around Christmas last year at the Mall of America. During that protest, she posted screenshots of complaints she received from the public about her participation in the rally to her more than 2,000 Twitter followers, including the names, addresses and phone numbers of her critics.

She later deleted those posts, but defended herself — saying those comments were sent via the city council website, which archives and makes public any comments posted, along with the contact information of the posters.

In the passage of a resolution Friday, the City Council agreed, dismissing the ethics complaint filed against Cano, but acknowledging that her actions violated “the ethical aspirations” of the rules.

  1. Thank goodness common sense prevailed and the trollers got what they deserved. What a bunch of racist bigots the lot of them were and are!

      ST F U You dumb fuking piece of chet liberal!

    2. Mike Coxin says:

      I’m sorry for what I said. I didn’t mean it. My boyfriend just jousted me and I was in pain. I couldn’t help it. It won’t happen again. Long live Liberals and the Democratic Party!

    3. Even if one is a racist bigot, it’s then ok to publish their personal info? So much for being a liberal.

      As reported here at CCzero; Governor Dayton explicitly told the government’s prosecutors to give the arrested blm criminals a free pass, and not to pursue bringing any of the other blm involved to justice for their crimes that night. It is the right thing to do. Anyone who objects to living with and paying for criminals should leave the Socialist Welfare State. Their diversity makes us stronger. We need more of these Welfare Socialists in public office to flaunt the law and import more third world welfare malcontents to grow the Village.

    If anyone is going to investigate tweets they should go after Trump. In my book, he is the ultimate pig.

    1. Mike Coxin says:

      Remember Trump said he will release his tax returns when Kilary release the 30k + emails she deleted.

      1. Mike Coxin says:

        But you know, the more I think about it, how can someone get 30 thousand or more emails and read them or have time to delete them all. Maybe the GOP is making all this stuff up. How can one person know the content of that many emails? Heck, McCain couldn’t remember how many houses he owned. And Trump can’t remember if the checks he signs everyday are from his foundation or his businesses. The GOP is such a group of winey losers.

        1. Mike Coxin says:

          The liberals are getting their a sses handed to them. Trump can say what ever he wants and his ratings continue to climb!

          Liberal is true definition of failure!

          TRUMP 2016!

    No Surprise.

    When was the last time a Democrat paid the price for their stupidity and heinous behavior?

    1. Jeff says:

      it might just happen November 8th.

  4. Jeff says:

    do the apologists for Cano understand this wasn’t about the tweets, It was about the personal information of her consitituents that was required to contact her was copy/pasted on her tweets. Thus putting at risk her constituents that happened to disagree with her.

  5. Mike Coxin says:

    Democrat! The true definition of hypocrite!

    1. Mike Coxin says:

      Oops, I’m sorry. I meant Republican! My bad.

      1. Mike Coxin says:

        Nice attempt. Just another pathetic liberal assuming someone else’s name.

        1. Mike Coxin says:

          Nice attempt. Just another pathetic republiturd assuming someone else’s name.
