    A few, basic, English skills would go a long way. This reads as though he made the advances during the news conference today.

    Come on Bob – get off your 'rehab' ass and resign… there's no doubt, with this many women coming out with allegations against you (what is it, eleven now, Bob?), that you are never going to be treated seriously in this city again.

    Step down – be a man, not a whiny little 'victim' of your self-made 'disease'. THEY are the victims, you scum bucket. You are nothing but a joke that USED to be a politician – that's over now.
