It’s hard for me to believe that City Attorney Mike Gridley told Team Brannon attorney Starr Kelso to shove his papers where the sun doesn’t shine, as Kelso contends. Gridley, after all, was on the witness stand at the time. And Kelso seems to be the only one who heard the comment — and mebbe someone else from Team Brannon as Mary claims in her OpenCDA.com screed but per usual doesn’t identify. Tom Hasslinger, of the Coeur d’Alene Press, asked Gridley about the exchange during a break. He writes in an online story: “Gridley, outside the courtroom, said that wasn’t exactly the exchange the two attorneys had. He said he told Kelso in unspecified terms to stop the behavior during the questioning, adding that Kelso had tossed one of the paper exhibits at him instead of just handing it. ‘You don’t treat a witness that way,’ Gridley said”/Tom Hasslinger, Coeur d’Alene Press.

Question: Do you think Gridley really told Kelso to shove his papers where the sun doesn’t shine? Would you think less of the city attorney if he did?
