Coffey v. Lorch: Masochism’s as good as necrophilia to a blind yes-man, so off to council we go.


Is it the Ides of March yet? It seems like a long time ago, but as the council minutes, January 19 was the night we learned about the price of Dan Coffey’s swing vote: Council attorney Matt Lorch’s job.

ON THE AVENUES: Jeff Gahan and Adam Dickey are Trumping the Donald when it comes to breathtaking moral turpitude. Have they no shame?

First, the minutes.

So, will there be further beak-wetted fireworks tonight?

Is Coffey still lusting for human blood, or was the mayor’s promise to rehabilitate senior housing at Riverview Towers (Coffey’s traditional vote haven) enough to satiate the Copperhead’s appetite?

If the matter arises, how will the shameless City Hall sycophant Bob Caesar vote? The Green Mouse suggests that Caesar has come dangerously close to showing signs of a conscience over the appeasement of Coffey at the expense of a loyal Democrat … but Caesar covets the mayor’s chair, and so does Pat McLaughlin, and they don’t know whether Jeff Gahan will run again … so what to do, especially when your default setting is political weakness?

Hmm. Looks like I picked another bad night to stop drinking.
