The other day I noticed that John Fullerton had posted a response to my blog post of TWO MONTHS AGO as follows:
“As I told you last summer at the Harbor Group luncheon, I am an independent and NOT a Republican. Like I told you, I changed it several years ago. I also told you I haven’t been involved in partisan politics in almost 15 years ago.”
John must have been a little unglued to post such an ungrammatical thought but I got the gist. Did I argue with him??? Heck no, I replied “Whatever you say, John. Have a great Holiday season.”
A couple of days later I got a letter from his office manager to saying: “Just a short note that we will NOT be doing your tax returns in the future.”
I cried for hours, of course.
I guess this is my punishment for calling him a Republican. This is the guy who was the county CHAIR of the GOP just a few years ago. I always thought we had a good, if slight, relationship. I’ve never said anything but nice things about him. Can’t remember why I started having him (I should say, his staff) do my taxes, but I’ve always been satisfied. Well, next time I see John I will offer my apologies for having called him a Republican. Such are the times we live in.
Then I guess I’ll have to find another CPA, or maybe I’ll just start doing them myself again. So my punishment will involve about five minutes to find someone else. If this ends up costing me money, I’ll let you know.
BTW I checked out the Humboldt Republicans website for the first time. All mention of John’s checkered past as a Republican have been excised long ago, of course, but what they DO have front and center is a link to Brietbart. Such are the times we live in.
