Toledo's major gets caught breaking the law
_WTVG_ August 4, 2007 - More controversy surrounding Toledo's mayor as 13 ABC cameras' bust him for parking in a handicapped spot.
Toledo's mayor gets a ticket for parking in a handicap spot. It happened after 7:00 last night at the Westgate Building.
The mayor says he did it to keep his dog from suffering in the heat. He was at the building for a 45 minute massage therapy appointment treating an injury to his achilles tendon.
Here was his explanation. "There were no other people parked here. There were five other spaces. I have a semi-torn achilles tendon, my dog is overheated. That's why we parked in the shade."
There were plenty of parking spots nearby. In fact every other handicapped spot was open but most regular spots were in the sun. The mayor's dog Scout stayed in the car with the rear windows open. Carty says he intends to pay the ticket._
(I'll use boldface and italics once Ive figured out the new tools)
As both someone with knee problems and dogs, I cannot imagine leaving my dog in the car for 45 minutes yesterday. So he has a sore ankle??? HE can take care of himself - imprisoned, his dog could not. He ONLY got a ticket for illegal parking??
His elitist thinking "there were 5 other spaces"... Bullshit!! Can he speed 100mph down a highway because there are two other lanes??
