Another Bridge Fabrication

Subject : Bridge Issues
Summary :

A Moline council person is claiming,"The East Moline bridge is a done deal." Truth or fiction?

Text :

According to a well-known Moline councilman, the East Moline bridge is a done deal.

That means that the city councils of Davenport, Rock Island, Moline, Bettendorf and East Moline have each voted to hold a referendum to form a Five City Wide Taxing Authority...

Which means that the citizens of each of the five cities have agreed via referendum to the formation of a Five City Wide Taxing Authority...

Which means that the United States Congress has voted to approve the Five City Wide Taxing Authority...

Which means that we are all paying at least one-half cent more for sales taxes.

Can't be true. The news media wouldn't have missed the party in East Moline.
