Norman Councilman caught on mic sharing vulgar disdain for jeering citizens…

Someone may want to tell Norman Ward 8 City Councilman Matt Peacock a thing or two about the recording capabilities of modern microphones!

Earlier this week, the Norman City Council held an at-times contentious debate over the proposed University North Park development – a project that would build and fund through TIFs a $230 million arena for OU.

At one point in the evening, when the council was trying to determine when or even if they should put the question to a likely non-binding vote of the people, Peacock filed a motion to hold the election in July.

His suggestion was greeted with jeers and boos from the loud and vocal anti-arena crowd who always attend and make noise at things like this. Peacock didn’t appreciate it, so he whined a bit, and then, when he thought no one could hear him, said…

Well, I’ll just let you watch it. Your virgin ears will never be the same.

Yikes! What a whiny crybaby! I hope somebody washes his mouth out with soap, and to make it taste even worse, uses Norman drinking water to do it!

I say this as a guy who many people think is a fucking asshole, but something tells me that referring to a bunch of Normanites who are simply expressing their concerns at a public meeting by that very same name isn’t the best re-election strategy!

Sure, that’s not as bad as calling them Texas fans, but it still crosses a line.

I think my favorite part of the video – outside of the omniscient voice of that grandpa who I think was about to offer Peacock a Werther's Original – is the stoic reaction of Councilman Stephen Tyler Holman.


You know he was sitting there thinking, “Did he just call everyone 'fucking assholes,' or am I just way too stoned?

Then again, I also liked the dirty looks Peacock gave when the jeers first rolled in:


“That’s the motion, guys. MMMmuuuuuuhhh.”

Anyway, vulgar quips aside, the Norman City Council set a vote on the arena matter even though the city attorney says the courts will likely rule the result invalid. You can read about all that boring stuff here.
