Councilmember Mike O’Brien’s provided an awesome twist ending to this whole anti-panhandling nonsense.
Councilmember Mike O’Brien ended up the key vote Monday on the bill’s 5-4 passage. By switching from yes to no at the last minute, O’Brien made it unlikely that the bill will become law as the council needs six votes to override a veto.
McGinn said Monday he lobbied only one council member — O’Brien.
The councilman’s flip was the likely unraveling of Burgess’ panhandling bill, which he has been working on for months.
The end…….OR IS IT?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
