Ooooh, burn!

The PG had an article in the paper this morning in which Jim Motznik (you know how much I adore this former Annoying Burgher) basically spoke as if he was already elected City Council prez.

Motznik, who has been president pro tem for four years, said he has spoken with all the members and asked them to support his bid for the job.

“I’ll probably leave council members where they’re at. If everybody’s on the same page, I’m not going to make any waves.”

And then this morning council went and voted Doug Shields in as prez on a 7-1 vote. Guess who was the lone no vote?

Oh, Jim. That has to smart.

    I guess being a pompous ass has its own reward.

    You should have heard him on Marty Griffin (KDKA 1020) this morning after the vote. He was burning all bridges by saying how disgraceful the council is and it’s ashamed these people represent this city. What a big baby.

    Looks like Jimmy issued an apology today. Damage done.

    I’ve been in Maryland for 4 years. But how Pittsburgh continually elects this guy is beyond me.

    As for the apology, probably too little and too late for him.

    Ditto on how he is elected over and over …. he is a known and proven thief – and he stole from the city, no less! Wake up voters of Pittsburgh. This guy is a pompous (sp?) ass and a loser to boot.
