The Blue Suit reveals secrets
“I never believed he was such a common crook.”– The mayor’s Blue Suit talking about Carlo to Josh Resnek
By JOSH RESNEK
The pressure of the campaign has been getting to the mayor’s Blue Suit.
The mayor’s Blue Suit told me Tuesday afternoon he felt terrific pressure coming from the mayor. He said the mayor’s attitude had gone from rotten to worse than rotten, that his greed had turned to avarice, and that the mayor’s bullying tendencies were at an all-time high.
‘He is not dealing well with the pressure caused by having two candidates who are going after him. Don’t forget, Carlo hasn’t had a real candidate in 14 years,” the Blue Suit recalled.
