Medlock's Ethics Take Another Hit

Today's Tulsa World editorial page takes a swipe at the ethics of former city councilor and current radio talker Chris Medlock.

According to the editorial, Medlock has been receiving offical city e-mails intended for his successor, Councilor Rick Westcott. These e-mails give Medlock information he can use on his radio show to spout off about perceived mismanagement at city hall.

The World points out that Westcott was a Medlock supporter when Medlock was the subject of a recall campaign and "is understandably upset that Medlock kept quiet about receiving the e-mails."

We'd be upset too. But we can't say we're too surprised about Medlock's silence. With Medlock, it was always more bluster than substance.

I haven't listened to Medlock. But then, I only tuned in DelGiorno when a Republican candidate got defeated, like when Henry beat Largent. DelGiorno's boo-hooing and bad-sportiveness was really satisfying.

Medlock looked like a chump when the World revealed that he did not possess the master's degree he relentlessly touted to the other councilors. He is just a rabble-rouser.
