Is Ken Wishnick in trouble with his own caucus? That's the scuttlebutt, anyway. Wishnick was apparently part of a behind-closed-doors ambush of a couple of local reporters, led by the Bernardo Junta, of course, during which Landon Chapman threw his substantial weight around and berated these reporters for supposedly slanted coverage. This is par for the course with the Bernardos, who see these kinds of intimidation tactics as simply another tool to accumulate and maintain power (it's also not a very good way to ensure you get the coverage you want, and is likely to have the opposite of the desired effect).
Wishnick, on the other hand, should really know better than to cozy up to these cranks. Granted, he did win the Independence line, which means he had to genuflect to Len Bernardo (and Langdon Chapman) at some point. But he decided to caucus with the Democrats, thus he owes it to his party to show a little loyalty.
Hey, Kenny? If the dinner-party invitations suddenly dry up, this is why.
