Six Debates, Same Story: Pete Dinelli Too Risky to Lead City
  ALBUQUERQUE, NM — The candidates for mayor finished up their sixth and final debatetonight on KNME, but voters got more of the same from Pete Dinelli: a risky choice who lacksideas and doesn't believe in Albuquerque."The people of Albuquerque saw tonight an angry and shrill candidate in Pete Dinelli. Not onlydoes he make it a point to tear down the city with false claims, but it's clear that he doesn't evenbelieve in the city and its people," said Chris Sanchez, a spokesman for the campaign. "Maybethis is his way to scare voters into voting for him. But it's not working because the people of  Albuquerque know that if Pete Dinelli couldn't even keep his small Safe City Strike Force under control, there's no telling how badly he'd mismanage the city. He's just too risky." 
BACKGROUND:
The Safe City Strike Force, which Pete Dinelli oversaw, was so out of controlthat it cost the city a $1.7 million civil rights lawsuit because the unit illegally evicted tenants andhumiliated them.Source: Albuquerque Journal Below is pour fact-check of the KNME debate.
