Kevin Johnson,What about your friends?


Every now and then I get a little crazy
That’s not the way it’s supposed to be
Sometimes my vision is a little hazy
I can’t tell who I should trust or just who I let trust me 

People try to say I act a little funny
But that’s just a figure of speech to me
They tell me I changed because I got money
But if you were there before then you’re still down with me

[Chorus:]
What about your friends
Will they stand their ground
Will they let you down again
What about your friends are they gonna be low down
Will they ever be around or will they turn their backs on you

2016 may be a challenging one for Mayor Kevin Johnson.  An old sexual allegation has resurfaced, an allegation that goes back 20 years

Organizations outside of Sacramento are calling for the Sacramento Mayor to resign.  There are indications this may be just the beginning.

The mayor has a little more than a year left and has said he is not running for a third term.

The mayor was well liked in Sacramento’s business community.  The Bee seemed to be a friend to the mayor.   The mayor’s ascension is somewhat remarkable. At a  meeting in the Bay Area last spring,more people knew the name of Sacramento’s Mayor than San Francisco.

If you  Wiki his name, most of his skeletons ,allegations are front and center. With all this information readily available, the majority of voters in Sacramento elected him ,not once but twice.

Kevin Johnson has never been convicted of sexual crime.

Earlier this year an  sexual harassment allegation by a city staffer came and went.

That was followed by stories of his involvement with the National Conference of Black Mayors and then the video release of the 20 year old Phoenix Police Department interview with a teenage Phoenix girl accusing him of molestation. Which lead to  ESPN’s shelving of a movie chronicling his involvement retaining the Sacramento Kings .

From that moment  on the mayor has been in freefall.

Kevin Johnson was an excellent power forward, but he is not a street fighter.  He’s not quick on his feet and is not comfortable in press conferences.  He has a staff that runs the line of defense for him.

 The Bee has been critical of the mayor of late.  The drum beat is growing louder.  Other groups and the Sac Bee may call for the mayor to step down.

After watching the disturbing detailed video of teenage in Phoenix  Some believe Johnson should have been convicted.  However this case 20 years old.

Throughout his tern, K J has had large groups of supporters. From local projects to the Sacramento Kings.

These new attacks leads us to ask, where are his friends? where are his allies.
