Philanderer Bob Nichols has hired the consulting services of Terry Scott, President Carl Nixon Mango Festival. I thought a quick bio was in order.
Back in 2009/10, when I was helping New Times reporter Tom Francis research the bullshit known as the Mango Festival, one thing always stuck out.
You see, according to Scott, there were only 3,000 paid attendees to the multi-day event.
Yet, when you check out pictures from the Mango, there’s a swarm of humanity up and down MLK.
Day and night, lots of people.
But Scott had to stick with the 3,000 figure … because he only declared $17,000 in total gate attendance.
God damn crook.
It’s also important to keep in mind, this very same event, with Scott’s pudgy little fingers in the cash box, received well over $1M in funding from Deerfield Beach.
Thanks to the amazing help from the New Times, we were finally able to convince the city to stop pissing away taxpayer cash.
Cash, I opine, that ended up in Scott’s pocket. Though, as Nana told me, stolen money is long spent on hair cuts and blue jeans.
I helped kill the Mango. I brought Scott’s crooked ways out to the public’s eye. And for this I get a death threat by a gent who might very well prove wrong the adage, “weebil’s wobble, but they don’t fall down.”
Read Tom’s story, if you haven’t already. It’s amazing.
Bob Nichols uses Scott’s services. That’s really all that one needs to know about his time behind the bench.•••
