Sources tell PoliticsNY.net the Erie County Auto Bureau in the Rath Building is abuzz about the end of a short-lived clerk stint by perennial candidate Sam Herbert, who has been "let go" from a part-time job at the bureau following a rather bizarre episode.
Herbert, who has announced another run for Fillmore District Councilmember this year, was fired after a woman complained of inappropriate comments from the erstwhile candidate. What may have been a playful quip by Herbert, perhaps bucking up on his humor in preparation for this year's run against incumbent David Franczyk, backfired badly.
A woman approached Herbert's auto bureau window and, according to our giggling sources, she was, well, endowed with generous bosoms bursting out at the seams. As Herbert chatted up the gifted customer, he blurted out his absolute delight and asked the woman if he could write his telephone number on the her breasts.
Needless to say, when the stunned woman complained to Herbert's supervisors, he was canned.
The irony, however, is that Herbert has written a lot over the years of his religious convictions, his distain for society's acceptance of gays and how political correctness and progressivism is against God's will. He often rails against the loss of "family values" in today's society. But somehow, offering to write your telephone number on a woman's bosoms is completely fine for Sam Herbert.
