Mayor Eddie Perez's Defense lawyer Hubert Santos topped the dyslexia defense with a statement that's almost too good to be true. "What's the bottom line - is Mayor Eddie Perez a crook? No. There's not too many crooks showing up every day at city hall, working for the betterment of the people of the city of Hartford." Let's focus on that "there's not too many crooks showing up every day at city hall" portion. Surely Santos is aware of him, him, him (three in a row for Waterbury!), him, him, her, him, him, or perhaps him to just name a few. I know everyone is entitled to vigorous representation but making such statements makes everything look like a farce. It's no wonder the public has such animosity towards defense attorneys. But hey, maybe I'm taking the statement out of context and Eddie has much better city hall attendance than other Mayoral crooks?
