President of Council (Term ends 12/31/11).
He just didnt like getting caught
Names were used without their permission. Just like Van Jones and the 9/11 truther website.
Sure, I believe all of you/sarc
Wonder if Mike Coleman (mayor of Columbus and all-around used car salesman) is on the list?
“They ought to have to wear a liar meter.”
A liar meter attached to a politician would NEVER make it through the warranty period. It would blow up.
