What on Earth! Imagine getting paid to say stuff like this with a straight face:
Mr. Ravenstahl referred comment to his attorney, Charles Porter, who said the former mayor took the computer because he was concerned the Peduto administration would move in, hide it and then concoct a story about it going missing.
“He didn’t trust the administration, so he thought it prudent” to take the computer with him, Mr. Porter said, “so that people couldn’t claim any derogatory things about him.”
Mr. Porter said he does not believe there is any reason the city should have alerted the FBI because he said the matter does not involve any federal jurisdiction.
