City commissioner quits over mayor's Obama slam

(CLOVIS JOURNAL, NEW MEXICO) — A Clovis Realtor resigned from the city’s Planning and Zoning Commission on Wednesday, saying he may get involved in a recall of Mayor David Lansford.

Brent “Bud” DaBell said he was resigning because Lansford called Barack Obama an illegitimate president and “the carnal manifestation of evil.”

“Any belief that Mayor Lansford’s position will not be a tipping point in future endeavors and government funding for Clovis … can be nothing but naive,” DaBell said in his letter of resignation. “I feel that my time can be spent more productively serving the city of Clovis by looking into the possibility of a recall election.”
