Denver City CouncilmanDoug Linkhart
found himself in a bit of a fashion conundrum last week. After being called a racist in a letter to theRocky Mountain News
-- based on his statement about kids who wear "saggy, baggy pants all over the place" — Linhart's campaign manager joked that his boss consider a makeover. Maybe a grill?
In December 2003, Cat gave the good councilman a new look — and damn if the clothes didn't make the man! In fact, Cat noted in Off Limits that week that "Leftie Linkhart" looked downright H-O-T in his new duds from Rockmount Ranchwear.
Maybe he'll break them out again now that he's running for re-election. A well-defined ass never hurt any campaign.
