Allison staff steals Pat fliers right in front of me!
Last night, Pat Kernighan was invited by District 2 DJs and bar owners to visit several establishments in the Grand Lake and Park Blvd neighborhoods. As Pat was leaving the Easy Lounge, Aimee Allison and an orange-shirted entourage showed up to crash the party. Ms. Allison spent several hours hanging with the clubbers, dancing to hip-hop while dressed atrociously (she was wearing a black velvet blazer with large silver embossed buttons over a tea-length jersey gored skirt, black tights, and pumps with exaggerated toilet heels).
I noticed after awhile that the Pat Kernighan literature the bar's workers had put out seemed to be gone. Assuming that patrons picked it up, I placed a few more fliers on tables. As I was sitting and enjoying a drink with a companion around midnight, Allison staffer Alli Chagi-Starr, with Ms. Allison standing behind her and watching, scooped up the Pat fliers on the table in front of me and walked off with them. I gaped at her, and then saw a young woman run after Ms. Starr to demand that she put the fliers back. Ms. Starr said that it had been a mistake (which is absolutely untrue: I watched her steal them with my own eyes), and gave them back. The young woman was told by a man who appeared to be with the Allison campaign that "Pat is corporate," whatever that means. I assume it was a justification for thievery of campaign material, witnessed and therefore approved by Aimee Allison herself.
