I'm having a really hard time understanding why Lon Burns is allowing Anthony Jones to hold a fucking press conference today.  What possible benefit could come from this?  This is just a really stupid move in my opinion.  The only person Jones needs to be talking to right now is Jim Letten...he definitely doesn't need to be pleading his case in the court of public opinion.

What's he going to do?  Cry patsy? were in the book depository with the fucking rifle, bro.  You're not going to get out of this by pleading your case on the 6 o'clock news.  Put the microphone down, step away from the camera.

I can't imagine how this is going to benefit him.

This is going to be a canned response, hopefully not, but I have little faith AJ is going to come out and say "they did it, here is the proof..."

I could write this myself..."thank you for giving me the opportunity today to speak to you about this matter. I was unaware of the circumstances surrounding the alleged actions of Mr. Meffert and St. Pierre and could not have been able or expected to research, address and resolve these matters for every possible contract that is active within the City Hall IT department. As a lead administrator my job was to make the best of the current situation and navigate the departments resources to perform more efficiently and consistently. I regret not being able to provide more assistance but I cannot tell a lie"

He falsified an invoice....he's busted. He can say whatever he wants to say, but it can't possibly help him could only hurt him.

He can try and distance himself from Meffert and St. Pierre, but it's not going to help him legally. He may end up saying something that actually incriminates himself further....I think its a very stupid idea.

So what time does this fiasco begin?

I recall Derrick Shepherd having a similar presser ("Hyeeeelllll NOOO!!!" was his most memorable statement) and we all know how that turned out.

Maybe he's out front running interference for Nagin, et al, who knows at this point.

"I am just a patsy"

His goal is to force Nagin to pay for his legal fees (and get him a better lawyer) or he's going to take the whole ship down with him, to continue Eli's nautical references.

Blaaahhh Blah Blaaah Blah Blaaaaah. The old saying that someone has Diarrhea of the mouth is really appropriate with Mr. Jones. He spilling the goods on everybody and everything to try and become a real patsy in this fiasco.

The co-conspirators will try to force some pepto bismal down his throat very soon to shut him up..............its inevitable.
