Have petard, will hoist

Seems like just yesterday that the main leg breakerpolitical consultant for mayoral candidate Michael “Boy Wonder” Berry was accusing Orlando Sanchez for being soft on tax scofflaws. Turns out that Berry has issues of his own:

Monday, Berry’s campaign consultant blasted Sanchez for scheduling a fund-raiser at the home of people who owed back property taxes.

As it turns out, one of Berry’s own steering committee members, lawyer Mark Dulworth, had the same problem — overdue taxes of $2,770 on a house he bought last year in West University Place.

Berry spokesman Chris Begala said Dulworth’s mortgage company was supposed to have escrowed money to pay the tax bill that became due Jan. 31.

After learning that had not happened, Dulworth paid his back taxes on Tuesday, Begala said.

Begala said that Dulworth has contributed $100 to the Berry campaign in addition to being a steering committee member.

This is all just incredibly petty and tawdry, and I’m enjoying every minute of it. Keep it coming, fellas, I need something to tide me over until I get to see Matrix Reloaded.

    If memory serves correctly, didn’t Chris Begala work for Orlando last time? All the team switching is as much fun to watch as anything. I guess we should expect gaffes when twentysomethings decide to run for mayor in big cities, huh? As The Fat Guy frequently says, You Kids Get Off My Lawn!

    While Kevin and I are rarely in agreement on political issues, this time he speaks for me.

    Meanwhile, please pass the popcorn, and can we get the lads to go into a swimming pool for a catfight?

    So much for the Michael Berry campaign’s big “smoking gun” they tried to use against Orlando Sanchez. All it did
