In case you are wondering what Daniel Patterson has been up to, he just ended his quest for a seat on the Silver City Planing and Zoning Commisson.
Yeah, that’s in New Mexico.
He claimed that he’d been a part time resident of Grant County for the last ten years, a fact that local authorities have had trouble verifying.
He applied as “D. R. Patterson”, which he says was not done to decieve anyone. According to the Silver City Sun-News, he put in his application on May 29th, only a few weeks after he got run out of the legislature.
NB: Patterson wouldn’t be the first disgraced Arizona politico to run off to Silver City. I remember one ex-Democratic congressional candidate disappearing there leaving a bunch of unpaid bills from a local consultant.
