Revelations we cannot quite believe about the mayor…but they are all true
“Take off your shirt, DeMaria ordered. “I hate that shirt on you.”– Josh Resnek reading to the mayor’s Blue Suit from an official Revere Police Report
By JOSH RESNEK
When the Blue Suit got into my Honda Fit Tuesday afternoon in Glendale Square I told him straight out, “You’re not going to believe the stuff I’m about to read your seat belt.”
“What’s this about? Tell me everything. I want to hear it.
I think I know what you’re getting to. I’ve heard some things about a certain incident, but no one has ever given me details. Carlo tends not to talk about the bad stuff,” the Blue Suit said to me.
“Come on, Josh. What is it?”
“It’s about Carlo’s behavior with one of his employees as detailed in extensive police report I have about the incident,” I said to the Blue Suit.
The Blue Suit smiled.
“Come on then. Bring it on,” he said to me.
“Let me begin by telling you and our readers this is from the signed police report that led to a criminal hearing in Chelsea District Court. Here’s the story.”
Carlo requested that a female employee working at his Winthrop donut shop should report to the Revere donut shop. She thought this was strange. But she went along with it.
She reported to work at 8:30 a.m., Carlo and his aunt were present inside the donut shop. Carlo’s aunt left the store. Carlo and the employee, called Ms. Doe in the police report, were left alone inside the store.
The following is directly from the report:
“IT WAS AT THIS TIME, MR DEMARIA EMERGED FROM THE OFFICE TO THE FRONT COUNTER AND SAID TO MS DOE “I HATE THAT SHIRT ON YOU…I HATE HOW IT LOOKS ON YOU…I WANT TO CUT THE SHIRT.” MS DOE REPLIED THAT THIS WAS HER UNIFORM SHIRT AND THAT IF HE DID NOT LIKE IT’S APPEARANCE SHE WOULD TUCK IT IN BUT THAT HE COULDN’T CUT IT DOWN BECAUSE IT WAS HER ONLY SHIRT. MR DEMARIA RETURNED TO THE OFFICE AND BAKERY AREA OF THE STORE.”
“What’s wrong with Carlo wanting to cut her shirt?” the Blue Suit asked.
“You’ll see,” I told the Blue Suit.
“A SHORT TIME LATER, MR DEMARIA CALLED MS DOE INTO THE OFFICE, WHICH HAS NO SECURITY SURVEILLANCE CAMERAS. DEMARIA WAS STANDING IN THE OFFICE WITH A PAIR OF SCISSORS IN HIS HAND. AT THIS TIME, DEMARIA ORDERED MS DOE TO TAKE OFF HER SHIRT STATING “I WANT TO CUT THE SHIRT.” MS DOE REFUSED. MR DEMARIA MADE THE DEMAND TWO MORE TIMES PULLING AT HER SHIRT LIFTING IT UP. MS DOE REFUSED THE REQUEST. MR DEMARIA THEN PUT THE SCISSORS ON THE DESK AND PULLED DOWN HIS PANT EXPOSING HIS P…S AND GENITAL AREA TO MS DOE. MS DOE STATED THAT SHE WAS ABLE TO LEAVE AFTER HEARING THE FRONT DOOR OPEN.”
“You’ve got to be kidding me!” the Blue Suit exclaimed. “Please go on,” he added.
“AFTER SERVING A CUSTOMER, MS DOE WAS CLEANING UP EMPTY SUGAR PACKETS THAT SHE HAD DROPPED ON THE FLOOR. MR DEMARIA ASKED HER IF SHE KNEW WHERE THE BROOM WAS AND MS DOE REPLIED “NO.” MR DEMARIA THEN TOLD MS DOE TO FOLLOW HIM AND HE WOULD SHOW HER. MS DOE BELIEVES THERE MAY HAVE BEEN TWO CUSTOMERS SEATED AT A TABLE DURING THIS TIME. MS DOE FOL- LOWED MR DEMARIA BACK INTO THE BAKERY AREA, WHICH IS OUT OF VIEW.”
“MS DOE STATED THAT MR DEMARIA GRABBED HOLD OF HER WRISTS AND BEGAN PULLING HER TOWARDS HIM IN ORDER TO KISS HER. AS MR DEMARIA’S FACE CAME CLOSE, MS DOE TURNED HER HEAD AWAY TO THE RIGHT. DEMARIA THEN NUZZLED AGAINST MS DOE’S FACE AND NECK AREA. DEMARIA THEN ASKED MS DOE TO “TOUCH HIM THERE (REFERRING TOHIS GENITAL AREA).” MS DOE REPLIED “NO”. DEMARIA THEN TOOK A FIRMER GRIP ON MS DOE’S RIGHT WRIST AND GUIDED HER RIGHT HAND TO HIS GENITAL AREA, WHICH WAS CLOTHED UNTIL HER HAND WAS PLACED AGAINST HIS P…S. WHEN MS DOE TRIED TO PULL HER HAND AWAY, DEMARIA WOULD TIGHTEN HIS GRIP. AS A RESULT, MS DOE FELT SHE HAD NO CHOICE BUT TO LEAVE HER HAND AGAINST HIS P…S. MS DOE STATED THAT SHE BEGAN TALKING ABOUT MR DEMARIA’S WIFE, WHICH CAUSED HIM TO LOOSEN HIS GRIP ENABLING HER TO BACK AWAY AND GO TO THE FRONT OF THE STORE. MS DOE STATED THAT TWO CUSTOMERS SITTING AT THE TABLE SAW HER COME OUT OF THE BACK AND LEFT SHORT- LY THEREAFTER. DEMARIA LEFT THE STORE AT APPROXIMATELY 3;03 PM AND HAD TOLD MS DOE TO REPORT BACK TO THE REVERE STORE FOR WORK IN THE MORNING.”
“Woe! Woe! Josh is this for real?” the Blue Suit asked me. “How did you get this?” he asked me.
“It’s called going to court for it – freedom of information,” I added.
The employee told police she felt uncomfortable with Carlo, that:
“MR DEMARIA HAD MADE RUDE/INAPPROPRIATE COMMENTS TO HER ON AT LEAST TWO OTHER OCCASIONS, HOWEVER, SHE DIDN’T WISH TO BE CONFRONTATIONAL ABOUT THEM, BECAUSE MR DEMARIA HAD GIVEN HER EMPLOYMENT WITH CONVIENT HOURS.”
She told Revere Police investigators that Carlo said: “If you’re good to me, I’ll be good to you in and out of work.” The Blue Suit was stunned.
“You’ve got to be kidding me,” he said in amazement.
“I’m not kidding. This all comes from the Revere Police report. Not a word of this report is made up unless Carlo wants to contend the police didn’t know how to do their jobs,” I added.
“What did the police do?” the Blue Suit asked me.
“They advised the woman of her employee rights. They advised her to call the police if there were any further incidents. The report was signed by Revere Police Sgt. Carey and Detective LaVita.
“What happened next?” the Blue Suit wanted to know.
“Next week my friend. Next week I’ll lay it all out for you,” I told him.
“It’s all about what it says on Carlo’s signs. It’s all about proven leadership.”
