Amezcua campaign mimes, then surrenders, at the Yost Theater

Debbie McEwen practices her free speech, at tonight’s Council meeting

The Alfredo Amezcua campaign spent a week screaming on Facebook about free speech, but at tonight’s Santa Ana City Council meeting, which was held at the historic Yost Theater, they sent a mime to the podium, then waved the white flag.  I was embarrassed for them.

Ruben Alvarez, who serves as Amezcua’s photographer, turned in a speaker card.  I asked him where his censorship sticker was and he blanched.  He must have thought I read his mind.  Moments later, when he took the podium, he put a piece of white tape over his mouth, then proceeded to hold up sheets of paper with words on them.  It was all so lame I couldn’t even follow what the heck he was trying to say.
