Blong Yang Is Winning The Fifth Ward Yard Sign War, While This Blogger Has No Idea What A Brett Buckner Yard Sign LOOKS Like...

To those who live in the Fifth Ward, it's obvious that city council candidate Blong Yang has been winning the yard sign war quite handily. Yang's signs are EVERYWHERE. Even Level Three Sex Offender Peter "Spanky Pete" Rickmyer has a sign in his yard.

Do not mistake that last remark as a criticism of Blong Yang. To my way of thinking, anybody who can make Peter Rickmyer do something useful, like rake leaves, pick up litter, or post a yard sign near a busy intersection, is something of a miracle worker. Though I am mystified why the most notorious sex offender in North Minneapolis supports Blong Yang who, from what I have seen and heard, may be in a dead heat with Ian Alexander as the most anti-sex offender of all the candidates.

As for other candidates in the race, I think I've seen a few Ian Alexander signs, but I don't even know what a Brett Buckner sign looks like. Green Party candidate Kale Severson has been living up to his first name in this race: He's Green, and he's really more of a garnish than an entree. But I have a vague memory of maybe, possibly, seeing one of his signs so that puts Kale slightly ahead of Buckner in the all-important race for next-to-last and the avoidance of total humiliation at the polls ala Lennie Chism. 

If this race were decided upon nothing but yard sign placement, then it's Blong Yang by a landslide. If it were decided upon which candidate is most likely to support turning the proposed Bottineau Transit Line into a groovy vegan co-op, then it's Kale Severson.

There is no Blong Yang on the offender locator. There is only a BLONG XIONG and he is not on supervised release. Your comment is worthless.

I will correct you, with one half of an apology also, because this may not be him. There is a "Sonny", not "Sunny", Blong Yang on the Department of Corrections PRISON website a.k.a. The Offender Locator. Jail is not prison.
The Hennepin County Jail Roster is NOT the Offender Locator.
I am hopefully wrong but feel the need to know if this man is who he is. Is Sonny a nickname In Laos or Cambodia also as it is in the U.S.A.?
You are the best hope in this situation because you are more believable than our daily shitrag the Starless Tribune.

It is very clearly not the same Blong Yang but if you're so interested in talking about it then provide me a link to the information.

Sonny Blong Yang? Looks similar? Are you kidding me? He wears glass and has facial hair. He is 9 years old than me. And, I'm much better looking than him. :)

Goodness, how can anyone mistake Sonny Blong Yang for me? I guess some folks are just using the "All Asians look alike" logic.

Anyone suggesting that Sonny Blong Yang is me is absolutely WRONG and needs to check his/her vision and facts. Unbelievable.

While I'm here correcting the record, let me say this: JERRY MOORE DOES NOT AND WILL NOT WORK FOR ME!!! Are we clear on this?

--The Real "Blong Yang," who is running for City Council in Ward 5

You are a farce when it comes time to backpedal and you still have not done the proper footwork;
link my butt, it doesn't
surprise me that you do not investigate this guy and conveniently play dumb since YANG is not XIONG:
What's up? Since the YANG that is on the offender locator is a sex offender you might want to have your proof to distinguish the two since the ONE is running for the 5th ward in the sex offender capital of Minnesota.
Investigate YANG like you do BUCKNER or admit you don't care for blacks too much.

Comment rejected which contains three defamatory statements about three different candidates for Ward Five. Publish that crap elsewhere.
