Manoli's Mixed Coverage
Wednesday, October 26, 2005 :::
Richmond City Council President Manoli Loupassi can't catch a break. On the same day he offers a paper to ban nepotism in city hiring (aimed squarely at Mayor Wilder's nephew), we also read that he's defending an accused masturbator (to borrow a portion Style Weekly's headline) who was caught in the act just a couple of blocks from St. Catherine's school (which, for those who don't know, is an all-girls school in Loupassi's council district).
Local residents interviewed for the Style piece are livid. Manoli is apologetic. But hey -- he's on retainer.
One step forward and three steps back for the man who would be Lieutenant Governor.
