Here is the story in the paper. See how it works, right?
I stopped arguing with Mr. Grattan to be respectful of the other people in the room but I think the contrast between the politically unconnected Ms. Mulligan-Moore, low level bookkeeper, and the well-connected lawyers is fairly obvious. I didn't need to hammer than point home in the context of the meeting. In one case Mr. Grattan wants every penny. In the other case, he throws up his hands. One is ongoing and involves more money-- but there is nothing he can do. And the accused is someone he knows personally and is connected politically. I see. Duly noted.
