This is likely related to the shady book deal reported here: link


Mayor Pugh is currently on week 4 of a "Leave Of Absence"




IRS too.

Funny how people who seemingly hate the mainstream media so much go out of their way to emulate their style ("BREAKING! GUYS!LOOK!!!!!1") when it suits them.

On topic : neat.

It looks like there is some agreement, 8,700 copies of the book are setting in a warehouse.

Did she cry about the number of FBI agents that were used and that they had their guns with them?

Closing thread due to violation of political forum rule: "Just posting an article and link, particularly as the first post in a thread, w/o any additional commentary to continue the dialog is not allowed. If it's good enough to post it's worth commenting on as well."
