I know this is a little bit out of our coverage range, especially now that we have The Juice, but please forgive me, because I can't pass this up.
Broward County Mayor Stacy Ritter is involved in a bit of a scandal
. As a state representative, she voted for legislation that benefited a fraudulent viatical company that employed her husband, spent $100,000 to refurbish her home, and lent her a boat.
New Times Broward-Palm Beach columnist Bob Norman has emerged as her most vocal critique, and Ritter has come up with this real humdinger of a joke that she just needs to tell anyone who will listen multiple times.
"New Times is good for two things: wrapping fish and finding a good penis enlarger. So I'm not worried about New Times," is what she said
on WFTL today.
Which, according to a Naked Politics
, is exactly what she told The Miami Herald
earlier in the week: "About the Broward-Palm Beach New Times: 'it's only good for wrapping fish in' or looking for a 'penis enlarger or a male escort.'"
Oh, yeah, well, umm, Ritter, the only thing you're good for is wrapping fish in or being a reliable place to find a penis enlarger or male escort. Hurts? Doesn't it?
