Milledgeville Georgia Mayor Richard Bentley
Here's Milledgeville Mayor Richard Bentley on the alleged sexual assault by Ben Roethlisberger in his town (via TMZ):
"Anything that can draw interest to our town and make people want to visit, we would like."
"If it peaks people's interest about our city, we would certainly welcome them here."
Good on him for not wanting to let go of a good thing.
But, a really great mayor would be proactive.
How about guided tours of the bar with reenactments?
How's about a new town slogan. Something like: "What happens in Milledgeville stays in Milledgeville because we'll fuck up the investigation."
OK, granted, a little long for a slogan. Maybe they can just shorten it to something snappier like:
"Milledgeville: We're rapetastic!"
"Our bitches are drunk! - Help yourself!"
Maybe I'm being too harsh. Maybe TMZ took Bentley's comments out of context...Oh, wait. There is no possible context in which his comments would be anything less than beneath contempt.
Oh yeah, speaking of fucking assholes: DUMP BEN!
