We received a bizarre email chain from candidate for Baltimore City Sheriff, Mike Schaefer, in response to an earlier post we wrote about his disbarment, slumlording, and subsequent entry into the Baltimore City Sheriff’s race. Apparently the “CONTACT US” link at the top of the blog confused him, so he sent emails to WordPress, and to Lucian Marin, the guy who designed the WordPress theme we’re using. Keep in mind, we don’t actually know Mr. Marin — there are literally hundreds of themes you can choose from if you use WordPress, and we happened to really like his. Sorry, Lucian, for the emails you received.
The email chain, including multiple headers and ramblings from Mr. Schaefer goes on for about seven pages, so we’ll spare you all of that. However, we did receive the following email once Mr. Schaefer figured out the complex task of sending an email to the correct party:
Am the landlord’s candidate in this race, if you read the website, and have done a very good job but for a few glitches, an LA judge ordered to repair 7 things in 30 days, hired contractor who took are of 5 of them, told me he had material delays as to two, had him come to court explain that, expected judge to commend us for 5 of the 7 and give 30 days for contractor to complete last two, instead got 5 days in jail for “failure to patch and seal all holes cracks and crevices” and 5 days for “failure to have smooth and cleanable surfaces on all walls”, try and explain that to hardened criminals in LA County Custody as to why-are-you-here, that was early 80s. I am a survivor and we need public officials who understand how government can thrash good citizens and their efforts. mike My son is in entertainment promotion in LA now, here is pix of him with one of his friends, one of the more bizarre, he also knows Weird Al and Pauley Shore; I represent the living Munchkins, the Lollipop Munchkin 90, from Wizard of Oz, the 1939 classic firm; you and baltimore would enjoy this law professioanls with 100 nights of in field ride along police experience, as the new sheriff. mike schaefer
He also included a photo of his son with Pee Wee Herman. The email text above is 100% as I received it, and not edited. Folks, I couldn’t make this stuff up…but I do try to be fair and post responses and rebuttals. No matter how…disjointed…they might be.
