I can’t think of any matter of any importance whatsoever, that Dobbie voted differently from McKeithen. He doesn’t appear to have a mind of his own. Maybe Kathy McKeithen helped Dobbie get elected on condition that he always support her. Maybe she’s brainwashed him? Maybe she does his laundry? We have no idea why Dobbie has no independence of thought. We can theorize all we want but it won’t change the calculus: McKeithen plays with two council votes at all times—and she’s been hard at work on the third vote (Widmer’s).
