Here's an excerpt from an email that went out last night from Pink Martini's Thomas Lauderdale.
Lauderdale is one of Mayor Sam Adams' friends and supporters rallying around the mayor following the news Monday
he lied about having sex with Beau Breedlove, a legislative intern [emphasis mine]:
We are now going forward with our press conference, to be held today (Friday) @ noon @ City Hall on the SW 4th Avenue side. Not to be confused with the rally of support @ 5:30pm, this press conference will feature community leaders and elected officials with the important message that there is a lot of work to do in our city, that we should remain calm and not rashly cry out for the mayor's resignation. This press conference will also be an opportunity for people to express their personal support for Mayor Adams should they choose. At the very least, we must remain unified in our support for the agenda set forth by the Mayor.
The first of the day's rallies
begins at 10 a.m. It includes people who think Adams should resign.
