Ubiquitously Yours, Jai-Lee Dearing

Jai-Lee Dearing has mastered the trick all magicians before him have failed: to be in two places at once.

Apparently while being interviewed on WCHB 1200 AM radio, Dearing was also involved in an online discussion with the Detroit Free Press' Stephen Henderson and fielding questions from freep readers. At least that's what he wanted people to believe.

The interview ran over longer than Dearing had anticipated, and his campaign manager, Mike Carroll, was actually the one fielding questions online. Carroll said that his answers were consistent with the candidate's, noting “Jai-Lee and I are of one mind. They’re his answers,” but now acknowledges he should have signed in under his own name.

I wonder if the new city charter will allow Carroll to sit in and vote on matters if Dearing can't make it to council.
