On Civility and politicians in trouble

Peter Kelly, the mayor of the city where I used to live  (Halifax, Nova Scotia) is in a spot of trouble. It appears that his administration "loaned" several million dollars to a concert promoter that subsequently went bankrupt with the city holding the bag on 400k in bad debt.
Of late his facebook page has been overwhelmed with people calling him nasty names. His response to this is to say that all discourse on his page must be "respectful".

Personally I think that using the city as a slush fund is pretty fucking disrespectful but that is just me
