Trey Garrison has fact-checked the Build the Hotel media release -- wherein the pro-convention center hotel folks blast the anti-hotel faction's signature gathering methods as "manipulative, misleading and over the top" -- and found it lacking in, um, facts. And, more to the point, he reveals the true identity of one of the folks whining in the release about being accosted by "extremely aggressive" signature gatherers on two occasions. Turns out, Sophia Dowl is owner of Alpha Business Images on N. Central Expressway -- whose Web site reveals hers is the company behind the Tom Leppert for Mayor Web site, c'mon. As Trey notes, that is "not acceptable." --Robert Wilonsky
