The Politicker’s investigation into the apparent double-life of Council Speaker Christine Quinn continued this afternoon when our crack reporting team confronted her with the evidence that she is in fact Kim Morrison, satisfied JB Auto Care customer.
For those of you not following this Watergate-like scandal, yesterday The Politicker revealed that Ms. Quinn was apparently going under the alias “Kim Morrison” and living in Weymouth, MA, where she liked to frequent a local auto mechanic promising “picture perfect auto care.” Ms Quinn, AKA Ms. Morrison was pictured on a flyer for the mechanic alongside a testimonial in which she says, “Dealing with JB Auto Care has been the best experience I have ever had with car repair. I’ve been letting people know and will continue to do so. Thank you.”
“I have no idea how this happened,” Ms. Quinn told reporters today, clearly trying to come up with a quick explanation to tamp down the burgeoning scandal. “It’s bizarre. I don’t think I’ve ever been to Weymouth, Massachusetts…I have never been to this car dealership.”
Ms. Quinn conceded that she and her partner do own a car, but quickly added, “I am not Kim Morrison.”
And then, in the manner of those who confronted with the fact that they have been living a lie, Ms. Quinn anticipated our next question, digging the hole for herself only deeper.
“I have no soap opera inner life … It’s bizarre.”
Ms. Quinn quickly resorted to humor in an effort to keep at bay The Politicker’s continued investigation into her double identity.
“It ain’t that good of a picture, either. Were they looking for a va va va voom headshot that would bring people in? It’s just a goofy government government head shot.”
“I would be interested to know if it helps or hurt sales, ” she added.
Fear not, however, dear readers. The Politicker is on the case. And we are on to you, Ms. “Morrison.”
