Abramson: “Who is this kid?”

That was but one of the responses our Mayor had for Jefferson County GOP chairman Brad Cummings, the latter of whom had delivered earlier today a factual, coherent and scathing indictment of the Abramson administration’s (largely) post-merger shenanigans at the party’s headquarters on Muhammad Ali Boulevard.
