That being said, why put this guy through the ringer? He is struggling desperately to come up with an answer to every question thrown at him. Grant you, every answer is the same, with the same "okay, God bless" ending, but why use him as a source of entertainment and target, why not just give him an easy out and simply suggest that if the Mayor gig does not work out, maybe he has a future serving on some sort of committee.
Just toss this guy a crumb instead of trying to cut him off at the knees, there's just no need for that.
And Matt Jones may not need my vote this year, but if he wants to hang onto that seat, he will eventually need votes, and when he does, people won't forget the public tongue lashing and scolding he gave this man over using gift tape on his new front porch screen door. Hey Matt, if your reading this, and I bet you are, let me know the repair costs over the damage the Scotch Tape caused to your door. I'll cover the repair bills.
I'm sure if Mr. Cohen loses this election, the Scotch TapeGate will have played a major role in his defeat.
