And it worked!

Most advertisers have pulled their ads. The only advertisers who haven't pulled out appear to be those who got the advertising in relationship for in-kind work (Riddle plant farm provided some rather ridiculous looking landscaping for example) and Ben Fu who stated that he would rather lose a few votes than pull the ad.

Says a lot.  And to think that was the union's pick for the chief law enforcement officer.

He was well-funded and looked like a strong candidate out of the gate. Plus they wanted Kunzweiller out because he charged Betty Shelby with a crime.

That, and Kunzweiller was saddled with prosecuting a Tulsa Police officer who used department computers and resources to stalk his daughter's boyfriend.  Up to that point the D.A. had done everything the union wanted, but expecting him to ignore a high-profile killing like that was just unrealistic.  (new topic?)

As for the LED billboard:  The couple killed at that intersection yesterday evening making a left turn from 41st onto Yale would have certainly seen the bright, oversized billboard in their peripheral.  If it were playing video it could have caught their attention at the worse possible time, but we have no idea whether or not it played a role in the deadly crash.
