One clue as to what that correct presentation wont include: any reference to the independent movie filmed by undercover informant Tim Willis in the same downtown office space where one of the governments videotapes has shown Ford pocketing FBI cash. That money, several thousand dollars worth, was handed over by a supposed representative of E-Cycle, a fictitious computer firm used as an FBI front. Thats news-media talk. That dont mean nothing! Ford scoffed about speculation that he might claim only to have been an actor in Willis fictional drama.
Ford also doubts that this weeks resignation from the state Senate of former colleague Kathryn Bowers, ostensibly for health reasons, necessarily means she is about to change her plea, as expected, to guilty. Shes had real bad health, Ford said. Im privy to some stuff. I mean, long before all of this came up.
This picture also raises the quesion of whether heads of state get together before joint appearances to discuss how they'll dress: "Today, I'm going with an open-collared dress shirt and slacks. I'm rolling the sleeves up two turns."
"Cool. Me too."
