ELECTION '12//ASSEMBLY 18
June 4, 2012 | The whole world, it seems, is against Joel Young. Times like these call for a little heavenly intervention. In a YouTube video posted last April, Young was interviewed for a poorly shot and nearly inaudible talk show called, "Truth Today with Gloria Thomas."
It features the host's oohs and aahs during much of the four-part video as she poses softball questions to the embattled 18th Assembly District candidate. The presence of a Young for Assembly t-shirt hanging in the background takes away an question of the program's bias in favor of Young. In fact, if Young continues to the November election, an argument could be made the video should be a campaign expenditure.
In the meantime, here's video of Thomas and Young praying for "obstacles" to be removed for Young on election day and adding another WTF moment to the East Bay's inauspicious political year.
