Matt Lafata Declares Himself Mayor of Frisco! A Coup?

The election of the new Mayor of Frisco, TX WAS supposed to take place on May 10th, 2008. But rules, laws and ethics have never stopped Mayoral Candidate Matt Lafata before.

Why spend the time and money on an election, especially one on a Saturday! Saturday is for being pool-side with a healthy ration of beer!

So, on or before May 3rd, Lafata or his campaign team boldly proclaimed on his Official Campaign Website that HE, MATT LAFATA, was the "MAYOR OF FRISCO!"

Not only is this a violation of Texas Election Law, but makes you wonder how much in control is Lafata over his Campaign Committee....and himself. Lafata, the man who would lead a City of over 100,000 residents. Proclaims himself Mayor. Hmmm.

Confusion reigned (or would have if anyone had really noticed). Was this a coup attempt? Who was in control at City Hall?

And what of the REAL Mayor of Frisco, Mike Simpson? Was he safe, hiding out with the Frisco Resistance or was he imprisoned? Was he still alive? Was he playing golf?

Fortunately, panic in the streets was averted as, by the time anyone realized that they were living under the iron fist of MAYOR LAFATA, he removed his new title from his web site on May 7th, apparently being educated, after serving SIX YEARS on the Frisco City Council, that it was against Texas Election Laws under Title 15 to claim you hold an elected office that you don't actually hold. I'm sure (and disappointed) that he was shocked when he learned that news.

So the Coup that No One Knew; as this will be remembered in song, was over.

The election is back on for May 10th. Matt Lafata is back to being a term-limited City Council Member running for Mayor.

He will have to deal with a Sworn Complaint which was Fedexed to the Texas State Ethics Commission today. But Mr. Lafata is no stranger in dealing with ethics complaints. Just another bump in the road.

Maybe if he had just paid more attention during Council Meetings: fellow Councilman Jim Joyner, who sits next to Lafata at City Council Meetings, publicly confirmed for attribution in front of a small crowd at the last Candidate's Forum that the years-old "open secret” was true:

Council Member Matt Lafata spends the bulk of practically every City Council Meeting banging away on his personal laptop (the City built a nice computer right into his desk), quoting Joyner, "working on his Blog, his News Letters, and, God knows what else!"

Maybe that's why, despite his self-proclaimed multi-tasking abilities, Matt Lafata seems so uninformed on government in general for a SIX YEAR City Council Veteran.

Maybe that's why he thought that he could just announce himself to be MAYOR OF FRISCO and all this foolish election nonsense could be disposed of. Maybe.

So life in Frisco goes on with virtually no one knowing they were living under the Lafata Regime during the infamous Coup that No One Knew.

The REAL election is this Saturday, and I am happy to report that, after a few nervous hours, I was able to communicate with Lafata's opponent in the Mayor's race, Maher Maso, and he is safe and well.

But I still haven't heard from current Frisco Mayor Simpson yet. If anyone can confirm he's OK, please drop me an email. I'll sleep better.
