Apparently 2009 was a banner year for Toledo politicians. Yesterday was the 10th anniversary of the "boo Ben Konop" video which went viral back in the day and actually got copied on South Park, Family Guy, and The Cleveland Show. Today it's the Finkbeiner "fatso" incident in HIghland Park. A group of kids were gathered in the park when an earlier altercation was about to pick back up between two fighting teens. Mayor Carty Finkbeiner was walking in the park and decided to step in. In the video you'll hear the mayor call one boy "fatso" and refer to another as "fat ass". At one point it appears one of the teens was about to punch Finkbeiner from behind before being stopped.
Finkbeiner threatens to get the police there in two minutes and shut down the park. Happy 10th anniversary Mayor Finkbeiner
There may be some unsafe for work language in the video.
