    Yup, that's our mayor.
    He's racist, quoted as saying "those orientals work so hard! they never leave their machines!"
    He's incapable of handling his liquor, having been thrown out of multiple bars, AND also kicked out of the military ball for intoxication!
    He once snapped mid-conference and ran outside and slapped bumper stickers with his home phone number on multiple cars in the area.
    He's made gagging noises in council to demonstrate his opposition to funding proposals.
    He has been arrested for DUI and possession.
    He has been charged for assault and threatening death against his wife (charges dropped, but she is never seen in public).
    He was photographed cheerily with his arm around a neo-nazi (who was in full regalia, so no "was he really?!" excuses!).
    He has claimed that the football team that he coaches would all be "nothing but gangbangers and criminals" if it weren't for his guidance. (just got fired from that job today actually!)
    He has groped other politicians.
    He considers the opposition to a casino as analogous to "banning McDonald's for fat guys like me".
    He routinely calls anyone who opposes him a "commie".
    When asked if females should be in politics he said "they can call me at home, we can go for coffee and I'll explain how politics works, but you have to be over the age of 18!".
    He's said "if you're not doing needles or not gay you wouldn't get AIDS probably, that's the bottom line", and followed it up with "if women are getting AIDS it must mean they're sleeping with bisexual men".
    He's sworn at reporters and city council members (calling one a "slithering snake" while IN a council meeting).
    And he called for a public lynching as being analogous to having a public meeting about homeless shelters.

    Oh, and regarding bicycle riders:
    "What I compare bike lanes to is swimming with the sharks, sooner or later you're going to get bitten"
    "My heart bleeds for them when someone gets killed, but at the end of the day it's their own fault."
    "It's no secret ok, the cyclists are a pain in the ass for motorists" (when informed that this was inappropriate he retracted the word "ass")
    "Roads were built for busses, cars, and trucks and not for people on bikes"

    He's special. But "special" with two "sh's and a "u".
    If steel is real then aluminium is supercallafragiliniun!

    As an albertan it should take an awful lot for me to ever feel sorry for Tdot. But you folks have had my deepest sympathies since the last election.

    Is this for real? It's like a bizarre comedy.
