Might Vidal have more surprises in store? According to one source, the manager claims to have kept a journal in which he documented each instance of the mayor's office asking him to do something in violation of the county charter. Vidal has also told supporters that on 21 different occasions, he was given orders by the mayor's office regarding personnel changes -- including hiring relatives of politically connected individuals.
"I'm not aware of any log the manager kept," May says. "But if he's got anything like that, he should take it to the State Attorney's Office."
Vidal refuses to discuss journals or lists of names. His only response is to smile broadly.
