Fogle: Unsafe at any speed

Originally uploaded by johnvierdsen

The following was told to Vierdsen by sources close to Vierdsonian Democracy who eyewitnessed the event. Because this was reported to John, and he didn’t personally see it, the applicable phrase is that the following allegedly happened.

It was 3:50 a.m. at Bar None on Saturday when political consultant and blogger Adam Fogle of Richard Quinn and Associates needed to take a piss. Zooming himself through the crowded bar in his motorized wheelchair, Fogle made it to the bathroom, but the door was closed and there was a line. Fogle looked drunk. Very drunk. And Fogle, he needed to piss.

Noticing the young man in the wheelchair, a 26-year-old health care professional decided he would open the door for him and let him use the toilet. That was when Fogle did it. He ran over the man’s left foot with his wheelchair.

“It hurts badly,” the health care professional said, back at a table near the bathroom where Fogle had just emerged. “It’s a three on a scale of one to 10,” but he expected it to be much worse by the next day, he said. “I’d give it a 50-50 chance that my navicular has been fractured,” he said. “It hurts like a son of a bitch.”

The man was angry.

“You don’t just roll over someone who’s going to open the door for you,” he said.

According to the man, Fogle did apologize, although it was “well after the fact.”

“I think he did that shit on purpose and laughed about it,” the man said.

If you were at Bar None early this morning and witnessed the incident, Vierdsen would like to know your take.

    I was actually at Bar None around that time, a little earlier actually, and did see Fogle there. He was outside the bar at point and inside it at another.

    Too bad they can’t lock you up for being an asshole. Well, I guess that’s debatable…
