Voter fraud specials on LoPorto's "menu"

The following (obviously fake) menu for Lo Porto Ristorante "Gaffe", sent via fax from an anonymous source Friday evening, doesn't pull any punches on the restaurant's owner, Councilman Michael LoPorto, and other area Dems allegedly involved in the ongoing voter fraud scandal.

With dishes like Weasel con Kevin ("a thin, breaded turncoat, served in our delicious red sauce over shredded absentee ballots") and Frittura di Brown, the menu clearly came from someone who has been following the voter fraud story closely, but there's no indication who the prankster is.

The full "menu" below.

Tutunjian: I think this is an excellent opportunity for the Council to take the lead

One day after Mayor Harry Tutunjian urged the City Council to take the reins on a feasibility study of the Dauchy Building as a future city hall, he issued a memorandum to the Council further explaining his position. In the memorandum, he cites the Council's criticisms of previous bidding processes -- most likely referring to comments made by Councilman Bill Dunne, D-District 4, and Council President Clem Campana regarding the former City Hall demolition -- as a motivation for the Council taking the lead.

He also agrees to support "an appropriate budget transfer to pay the expense." The full document is embedded below.
