Lied about increasing the Police Force, lied about Akron's budget, lied about cutting all non essential travel (he just left for Heroshima Japan for a Peace Rally with Me-lissa), he lied about not being drunk and he lied about the police. They were on the scene in 3 minutes.

The Mayor being totally drunk was slow to react and probably misdialled a half dozen times since there were 17 calls ahead of him.

Liar Don strikes again!!!!!!!!

According to public records, that's where a good hunk of his campaign support $$$ always seems to come from. Figure Fat Jimmy the Janitor's pulling the strings?

Evidently, you don't read the bylines in the PD either. But I know, to you scarry, accuracy is tres gauche.

Howie, you are astute beyond your years. Meet me at Bob's on East AVE Monday and I will buy you a burger and flies.

Did you hear the City is trying to buy Plusquellic's boyhood home and turn it in to a library! Thongboy is going to be the curator.

Maybe I should be mayor. I'm kind of like the Northeast Ohio weather - if you don't like my personality, wait five minutes and it will change.

no. I hadnt thought about that.

I think you are an ignorant putz.

Like those folks who tell others who exercise their rights to freedom of speech, association, or religion that "if you don't like it here, why don't you move to (fill in the blank).

Do you have to be a drunk to become mayor?

Or is it most just happen to be drunks?

I know a good way to raise money for Tallmadge and Akron.

Have a drinking contest between Grimm, and Don.

Pick a bar, charge a cover, and lets watch these two drunks go at it.
