City Council candidate John Hartley has sent out this mailer to voters apologizing for the incident that led him to plead no contest to charges of committing a lewd act in public.
As he did in our story today, Hartley maintains that was only urinating and continues to use the colloquial reference to nature’s call:
It all started because I had to take a leak; and the next time I’m walking door-to-door and I have to take a leak, I promise not to do it in my truck, but to find a bathroom instead.
The mailer also features testimonials about Hartley from six women and City Hall watchdog Mel Shapiro.
