First of all, let me tell you, the claims that Pierce has made about Brad Collins “sexually harassing” her are laughable. They are almost certainly pure fiction. Some of you may have seen the email going around from a former City Hall insider explaining that Teresa never complained about Don Perry’s ongoing commentary on her looks and attractiveness. If she’s just SO sensitive that now she needs to be on permanent disability, you’d think that Don’s constant panting and whistling would have had her in the vapors years ago. So her claims don’t pass the smell test.
So again, what gives?
Here’s what I take away from all this. First, though she is a loathsome and poisonous person, Teresa Pierce is not entirely foolish. She knows her disability claim will go nowhere, but in the meantime, it sure does dress up her attempt to extort some cash from the City.
Second, I doubt that Rogers would let her leave if she was still being a useful minion. But now that Kent Myers is long gone, Glenn Cutler is gone, Larry Dunbar is gone, it seems like Karen Rogers might – I say might – be throwing in the towel at City Hall. Think about it this way too: If her only reason to have her hands on city business was to skim some money off, how much more can there be to skim when the City is so incredibly deep in debt?
Finally, speaking of money, I think that Teresa’s ham-handed attempt to extort $100,000 from the City has a “me too” feel to it. As in, did she hear talk (like I have) about the City settling with Yvonne Ziomkowski, and think “me too”? I suspect so. I also suspect that Rogers will have promised some sort of job or financial reward to Pierce as part of this.
So share what you know, what you’ve heard. Tell us the truth about Toxic Teresa.
