CARMEN SABATINO’S MORNING MAYOR SHOW DISRUPTED !. Thu, 11/03/2011 – 12:32 — wayne2008
NOVEMBER 3, 2011.

MODESTO – At around 10:30 this morning during the taping of the Morning Mayor on the BlogTalkRadio Show with Modesto City Council Candidate Carmen Sabatino as the host. Former Voice of Modesto reporter and writer Emerson Drake who was invited previously by Sabatino showed up, as the conversation progressed Emerson Drake requested for the 390 stories he had written for the Voice of Modesto to be taken down.

Carmen Sabatino then asked Brian Dubois a candidate for the Modesto City School District to make sure that happens…Dubois and Drake then began talking about the technicalities in moderating the now defunct Swarm blogging site which is an addition to the Voice of Modesto website, Sabatino then told Emerson Drake to leave an argument ensued. At this point the listeners to the Morning Mayor Show could then hear an argument in the background between Sabatino and Drake then someone said call the police. The sounds of things being tossed around and more noises which sounded like shuffling could be heard.

The audience in the chat room then began discussing Emerson Drakes involvement with the Voice of Modesto and how was the only good writer the Voice of Modesto had and everything fell apart after Emerson Drake was replaced as both the Co-Host of the Morning Mayor Show and as a writer for the Voice of Modesto.

The Morning Mayor Show then continued after Emerson Drake had left the building, Athens Abell another candidate for a local school district then arrived, the show then discussed Dave Lopez who is a Modesto City Council member and Carmen Sabatino’s opponent in the current election. With out notice the plug was pulled on the audio, Athens Abell was speaking to the audience trying to see if they could hear anything. With about 15 minutes of the show left nothing could be heard and the bloggers were being kicked out of the chat room as was I for asking that Carmen Sabatino bring back Jenny as the Co-host of the Morning Mayor show.

It is unknown if the police arrived at that point, this is a developing story and you will be updated.

This episode can be heard at the Blog Talk Radio website for The Morning mayor Carmen Sabatino.

    It was quite an argument and surprised Sabatino and the audience in the chat room.
    The after talk about what had just happened was also revealing for what we didn’t see but heard according to Sabatino and Brian Dubois allegedly Emerson grabbed the cell phone and tossed it and apparently some head phones are missing.

    Stanford may have it online by now, if not you can look for the archive of the show if you type in Morning Mayor and look for the Jan 14 episode which also has the current episodes of the Morning Mayor, the altercation begins about half way through the show.

    Question, Wayne: you said Athens Abell is a candidate for a local school district, do you know which one? I hope she knows who she’s associating with by joining Emerson D at the hip.

    I believe Athens Abell is a candidate in the Hart Ransom School District. She already knows who Emerson is, they met at the Med.

    Ah, there we go. So she’s one of 3 candidates running for 2 spots on the Hart Ransom School District. I’m not sure if Hart Ransom is like the other small school district here in Stan County, but that very, very small school district pays its board members $200 per month (4-year term, that comes out to about $9,600 gross over a 4-year span) and full medical benefits over those 4 years. Talk about a sweet deal. I wonder if Hart Ransom does that.

    I think Athens is a Tea Party member not for sure if she will take payment she may donate it back into the system.

    That’s a question to be asked.

    Actually – I don’t know if Hart Ransom is correct anymore – she was going to be running for Hart Ransom but then she found out that you have to “actually live in the district you represent”.

    She does well. Hopefully she will not try and sabotage me like her current mentor, Carmen Sabatino does. You know – by trying to make me lose relationships and my job.

    Oh, and one more thing – the anti-carmen Sabatino website is here:

    Looks like drugs are once again being sold in the Krishawn street area.
