“Kevin O’Donnell is calling all the shots. He’s the real mayor.” — The Blue Suit
By Josh Resnek
“You know you’re going to kill me with these interviews,” the mayor’s Blue Suit said to me recently.
“From the day he picked me up at the cleaners, the mayor has been outraged about me talking with you. He’s tossed me around. He’s thrown me on the floor. At one point, he grabbed a big pair of scissors and he screamed at me,” the Blue Suit said.
‘What did he scream?” I asked.
“I’m going to cut you to shreds you bum,” he threatened.
“He held the scissors tightly against my pant leg.”
“I’m going to cut off your leg unless you keep your big mouth shut,” he answered the Blue Suit told me. “I was petrified.”
“Then he tossed the scissors to the floor, called me a wrinkled piece of second grade cloth and design, and scrunched me into a ball before tossing me inside the car he was driving. Boy, what a bad experience that was. You have no idea,” the Blue Suit said to me.
“You know how jealous and greedy the mayor is,” the Blue Suit said to me.
“Everyone who knows him knows that about him,” I answered. “You don’t know how nasty and underhanded he can be. I do. I know all his secrets,” the Blue Suit said.
“That’s not the first time he’s threatened to cut someone up, you know,” the Blue Suit said.
“What do you mean?” I asked.
“He did it to an employee at his donut shop. He put a knife to her throat. I know. I was there. The Revere police came. They wrote up a five page report…and then it just seemed to disappear,” the Blue Suit said to me.
