Dillingham is the One Playing Politics

Hamilton City Council has denied Rawnica Dillingham Wilson Dillingham Ruscigno Dillingham Rusicgno's request to transfer a liquor license and as expected she -- and her lawyer -- are trotting out all of the old one-liner favorites about backroom politics and political payback.

Let's review what we now about the party that is still going on at V's, shall we?

The police get calls to go out there quite a bit. Some might even classify that quantity of calls as " a lot" of calls. Let's review one in particular...
The Hamilton Police Department's vice unit conducted an undercover operation late last night at V's Nightclub, 1483 Millville Ave., after receiving tips the business was planning to offer erotic dancers to patrons, according to a department news release.

Posing as customers, detectives said they saw dancers wearing little or no clothing, offering erotic dances for $5 and touching patrons inappropriately, according to the release. Detectives also said they observed Eryka Huckins, a 20-year-old female from Cincinnati who was later arrested, expose her breasts and allow dancers to touch them.
That's not the sort of thing that you get to "do over."

I continue to be amazed at the gall of this woman. She defiantly throws caution to the wind and violates the law and then has the audacity to play the politics card as if her own actions had no bearing on the decision at all. She has never shown any willingness to accept any kind of responsibility for anything that has ever happened. Politics had nothing to do with this decision. Her record and actions have set these events in motion.

Rawnica lost the race to Commissioner Chuck Furmon because she was a lousy candidate who has a rather casual relationship with the truth. I give her plenty of bonus points for moxy and theatrical performance skills, but enough is enough already. Her 15 minutes were up a long time ago and she refuses to leave the stage gracefully like the petulant child that she is.
