The political tiff continues over the poll paid for by Councilwoman Sandy Sheedy's re-election campaign that showed city residents want to vote on any proposal for a new sports arena that involves public assets.
Sheedy is now the focus of a complaint made to the Fair Political Practices Commission. The charge: Sheedy didn't tell those who were called that the poll was paid for by her campaign.
But there's something about that complaint that doesn't quite make sense: it was made by a guy who doesn't live in the city and wasn't surveyed by Sheedy's pollsters.
Robert Langdon lives in Rosemont - at least according to the address he listed on the FPPC complaint and voter registration records. I emailed and called Langdon to ask why he filed the complaint, but haven't heard back from him yet.
The complaint also charges Sheedy improperly used her official position as a council member "to foster her re-election campaign" by posting the poll results on her city website.
For her part, Sheedy said the city attorney told her there was no reason she couldn't post the poll results on her website.
And Sheedy said she also checked with an outside attorney who told her she did not need to tell those polled that the survey was paid for by her campaign because it was "not an advocacy call."
"It was just an informational poll, it was just to find out what people thought," Sheedy told me. "Unfortunately, some people didn't like the results."
One of those people apparently was R.E. Graswich, the special assistant to Mayor Kevin Johnson. Graswich took to Twitter Monday night to go after Sheedy and the poll.
"Sandy Sheedy phony poll to kill 4100 Entertainment Sports Complex jobs draws formal complaint," read one Tweet.
"Sheedy could be fined & sanctioned for posting phony anti-Kings poll on city website," read another.
