Brimer will appeal

I guess State Sen. Kim Brimer hasn't lost in court often enough yet, because he wants to try again with the appeals court.

"We are in the process of both: campaigning for the fall election and appealing the district court's decision on our opponent's eligibility," according to a statement from Brimer's campaign.

Davis' office said Brimer's attitude and response are why she chose to challenge him for the office.

"Mr. Brimer still doesn't get it," said Matt Latham, Davis' campaign manager, in a statement. "After his second failed attempt to deny the voters of Senate District 10 a voice in their choice for state senator, he continues to hide behind his lawyers or even to face his opponent in a public debate of the issues important to the good people of District 10."

Brimer's office said in the statement that he would debate Davis if an appeals court rules she is eligible -- and if she repays the salary she earned as a city councilwoman from May 2007 to January 2008.

Any other conditions you want to impose there, big guy? Soft lighting, pre-arranged questions, no brown M&Ms? I know how hard this sort of thing can be, so I'm sure we can accommodate you. Sheesh.
