Lawyer Clay Ruby argues Ford has never explained his 'peculiar' view of the conflict law. #Fordcourt
Ruby summarizes his case: Ford "ought not to be believed," but if he is believed, his error was not in good faith. #fordcourt
What's not believable? That he never received council handbook, never read it, took oath of office again + again without reading MCIA:Ruby.
Ruby: Ford took an oath each time he was elected to abide by the law governing conflict, so to say he never read the law is not believable.
How do I put this delicately? Ruby seems to argue that nobody could be so ignorant of the rules of his own job, so Ford must be lying.
Ruby argues Ford never has reasons for what he does, 'Just a fixed, firm belief that is unshakeable'. #Fordcourt
