Toronto say hi to your newest hero (pictured on the side). Kristen Lucas is the 20 year old co-ed who was involved with city councilor and former mayoral candidate Adam Giambroni and who blew the whistle on Giambroni's little affairs while he purportedly had a live in partner seen with Giambroni in the photo below. You can read part of her story here.
Now some of you might say why am I calling her a hero? Why should I view her that way if all she did was unknowingly had an affair with this politician?
Well I am calling her a hero because Toronto you better recognize that this woman single-handedly has saved your city from being ruled by a nitwit. You should be writing odes and singing her praises.
Think about it. If she doesn't come out with this story, maybe Giambroni's campaign doesn't get derailed. He apparently had an excellent campaign team and maybe just maybe they find a way for him to beat Smitherman and next fall this man is our mayor.
Why is this such a bad thing you ask? You say well he's done a decent job running the TTC. Decent could be argued I guess since the TTC has seen better days and to tell the truth service sucks right now but still he does have a bit of management experience right.
Well you are correct but then again I personally believe that the events of the past few days have proven that this man is too stupid to run this city. His handling of the whole affair thing proves this and yesterday's press conference to announce his dropping out of the mayoral race gives even more proof that he is not ready for the big time.
But Adam Giambrone’s City Hall office had armed him with only one page of a two-page speech, say two sources close to his campaign.
So with the eyes of the city upon him, he realized a page was missing. Suddenly, he said “Thank you,” spun on his heels, and charged out a door and down a staircase surrounded by a phalanx of city staff and security.
“He only had the first page, the second page was still in the printer,” in his City Hall office, said a campaign source who spoke on condition of anonymity.
What do you mean the second page was still in the printer? Who goes to give a resignation speech and gets on stage and then all of a sudden realizes they are missing a page? If the dude can mess up something that simple what do you think he would do running our city? Good lord we might wake up one day four years from now as a satellite of Mississauga by the time he was finished.
Its this simple, you wrote a two page speech (Since they claimed he crafted it himself) then make sure you have a two page speech in hand, or at least if you only have one page make sure that its double sided. Come on dude. Or keep a copy on your blackberry man, I know all you political cats have one. How do you mess up not having the entire speech.
And even if God forbid you are silly enough to lose or miss page number 2 don't just run out abruptly. What are we little children here? Man up son! You're a politician wing it fool, wing it. Go freestyle!
Now after seeing him screw up a resignation (and ya got to be a special type a eediat to mess up quitting) how can we possibly have any confidence that that man could have run this city?
That's why I (and you should too) applaud Kristen Lucas for her bold act at the expense of her self and the ridicule that she will now draw from folk even though its not her fault. She stepped up to the plate. She called Giambroni out on his lies and the fallout was that dude choked under pressure and showed his true colors. He is a fraud (not a particularly damning trait in his line of business) and he clearly doesn't have the backbone to be mayor.
People will call her names and say she is just looking for attention and fame etc and who knows maybe that's part of it, maybe she wanted to be heard to have her story told. Whatever it was I cant help but think she did the right thing. Maybe it was done in haste or in anger cause Giambrone was playing her but ultimately it worked out for the best for our city Toronto.
So big up Kristen Lucas, you are my hero and I salute you. nuh ridicule di gal give 'er a medal nuh. Thanks for saving us from Miller 2.0.
