City Council Votes Down Money For Little Boy Stuck In Tar Pit


March 6, 2016 - Local

In a shocking move of partisan politics, members of Pasadena City Counsel did not approve a measure to send $150 to help free little Timmy Thomas from a tar pit.

Thomas had allegedly been playing with friends behind the Children’s Museum when his ankle got caught in three inches of tar and slowly started sinking. At the time this article went to print, Timmy was reportedly up to his neck in tar.

“Today is a sad day for Timmy. But more than that, it’s a sad day for Pasadena politics,” said Democratic councilman Robert Frand.

“Unfortunately, our Republican colleagues could not find the strength to vote for this bill when we attached a minimum-pay law to it,” he said.

The addendum would have mandated that Democratic council-members receive 3.5 times the pay of their Republican counterparts. The Republican leader of the council spoke out against the measure this afternoon.

“It is sickening that the Democrats would try to use Timmy’s plight to give themselves a raise. Sickening.” he said.

“All we Republicans asked for is $150 for Timmy and $2.6 million to defund abortion programs. It’s sad the Democrats were willing to let Timmy die for politics.” he added.

In the meantime, Timmy feels he is running out of time to be saved.

“There is no God,” he said.
