BRIDGEPORT -- Mayor Bill Finch was ordered Wednesday to appear before the same judge who ruled Paul Vallas was not qualified to be superintendent of schools. But in Finch's case he was in the Main Street courthouse for jury duty.

"I'm ready to serve," he said, minutes before being called to be questioned for the jury in a civil case about a young woman murdered in a Stamford hotel.

Finch, however, never made it beyond the initial stage before being sent on his way back to City Hall.

It's all bullsh!t. The dull animal, in having to fill out the regular questionnaire for ALL jurors, would have checked off the question regarding employment ("are you an elected official") and would have, even given name recognition, been sent a form excusing him from service.

His showing up was entire gratuitous and obviously a ploy for publicity which unfortunately the ctpost, not even soft and absorbent for its only conceivable USEFUL purpose, is all too happy to give him (and in the process 'renewing' the brown ring around it's nose).

So now we have this bs story. What happened to a real story? Who will repay for the illegally gotten driveway? Or, "What's another $400,000.00 graft gift courtesy of the Bridgeport taxpayer"?
