Carty and the Marines a summary of the last 48 hrs

Carty vs Marines and 7 days later, a rundown of the latest events

This so called ruckus is now going on its seventh day. With spilled milk everywhere, apple carts overturned in every corner, the fan and walls covered with you know what, the collateral damage is not going away anytime soon. Things have only marginally subsided and while the Marine issues seems a year old, there are new issues popping up, mostly because Carty himself continues to upset apple carts. With all of this Cartigula Chaos‘ one wonders if it can ever be cleaned up. It also makes one wonder with the mayoral primary only a little over a year away, if Carty has sealed his fate if he decides to run again. While Carty seems to have appeared to have signed an apology, he still appears to say he made the right decision.
:
On Saturday, the Blade reports the Carty Collateral Damage‘ may extend to the 3/4% levy renewal.

For some reason Carty needs to have the last word in his 6 things sent by e-mail. While trying to appear to apologize, he speaks out of the other side of his mouth that he did the right thing; very strange. Carty also backtracks on his 06 edict where he says he did not want Marines in Toledo.:

Of course, this is not enough, the appearance of Carty tossing the late honorable officer Spann under the bus hits the fan and sets the community and police officers off on Friday.

Also, a National Radio Blog notes that Carty’s slip may still cost WJR “several hundred thousand dollars.” The national blog also says does not sound like the words were mixed.

And Michael Miller guest hosts WSPD’s “Eye on Toledo”, and most of the show is about the Marines vs Carty incident.
You can listen to it here.

Also on Friday you hear Carty being a bit apologetic, maybe after the toasting he took in the Blade on Thursday.

On Thursday, things did not lighten up. The Blade toasts Carty in an editorial and a not so flattering cartoon.
