We’re launching a “Get Cacioppo Outta Dodge” fund. Speakout mogul and political gadfly Michael “The Italian Stallion” Cacioppo said he’d leave town for a sizeable pile of American dollars and a player to be named later. We’re taking donations here at Town Talk Towers, and have even offered to help him load the U-Haul. If you’re writing a check, remember it’s spelled “T-H-O-U-S-SA-N-D” when you fill in the amount. His beautiful wife, however, has to stay.
