Seven months ago Somerville’s assbag Mayor Joe Curtatone continued to make a fool of himself by suing Kirk Minihane and Barstool Sports, after he idiotically got pranked into believing that Minihane was disgraced plagiarizing Boston Globe columnist Kevin Cullen, and conducted a 20 minute interview. It’s one of the funniest interviews I’ve ever seen.
I enjoyed this. https://t.co/zsSogiBdmc

It all started when some no name SJW reporter from the Boston Herald feigned outrage because Barstool Sports sponsored some giveaway towels at the Bruins Stanley Cup Finals Game 2. Curtatone virtue signaled about it, and defamed the company by calling them racist.
As a fairly rabid sports fan one of the more regrettable things I've seen is the attempt to disguise misogyny, racism & general right wing lunacy under a "sports" heading. Our sports teams & local sports fans need to push back to stress that's not us. @NHLBruins #mapoli https://t.co/BrT97HBoHc

Minihane knew that Curtatone was too much of a bitch to sit down with him and talk about it (because he’d ask real questions), so he had to pretend that he was a Globe columnist who was recently suspended for lying a million times about being at the Boston Marathon bombing and knowing the Richard family and several first responders personally, in order to get an interview. That’s how much of a coward Curtatone is – he will only sit down with an a reporter that he knows his on his team, regardless of the fact that the guy has spent his entire career lying in columns.
Instead of just owning the fact that he foolishly got catfished and embarrassed by Minihane, the Mayor announced that he was suing Minihane and Barstool in Middlesex Superior Court.

He hired high priced attorney Lenny Kesten and the media wrote all about it.
Then yesterday this happened.
Hey @JoeCurtatone – just wanted you to be the first to know that the judge just dismissed your idiotic lawsuit. Maybe Kevin Cullen will call for a comment tomorrow morning.

Dismissed with prejudice. Didn’t even make it to the discovery phase, never mind trial. Ya know, because it wasn’t a “secret” recording if Curtatone idiotically agreed to give the same interview to Cullen, and he’s obviously a fucking idiot for falling for it.
Fucking embarrassing. This is the Mayor of your city Somerville residents. You did this. You elected this ass clown. Well done.
Question – will he still be donating to the women’s shelter?
Or was that only contingent upon bankrupting Barstool Sports?
Just like with our lawsuit with Gaffney, the media wrote all about it, and were hounding the Mayor’s office for comment because he was going after someone they don’t like.
And just like with our lawsuit with Gaffney, the media was nowhere to be found when it was dismissed. Almost as if they want the headline to come up on Google that you were sued, but they don’t want the public to find out that the lawsuit was complete bullshit.
So much time and money was wasted on this lawsuit, paid for by the taxpayers of Somerville. Internal emails show that Curtatone’s people were freaking out and writing up drafts after Curtatone got catfished by Minihane. Here’s a draft of a statement written by Michael Meehan for Curtatone (because the Mayor of a City of 75,000 is too busy and lazy to write his own God damn speech), Somerville’s “Political Communications and Digital Media Specialist.”
“White, male grievance.”
You look like every white male ever, and you’re filing a grievance.
This guy was getting PAID to write this draft. This is what your tax dollars go towards.
My personal favorite was when Meghann Ackerman, the city’s communications director who likely set up the interview in the first place, contacted the real Kevin Cullen to let him know what had happened. First she sent him an email after the interview with a comment for the story they thought Cullen was gonna write.
Cullen of course had no idea what they were talking about, but not being at an event has never stopped him from writing about it before. He had no idea what she was talking about though.
HAHHAHAHAHAHHA!! Who’s stealing more money? Kevin Cullen or Meghann Ackerman? By the way, she is EXACTLY what I pictured a political hack in Somerville would look like.
Do you have a door knocker on your nose? Do you hate Donald Trump? Do you like getting paid to fall for prank phone calls and set up your boss to be humiliated? You too could be the next Communications Director for the City of Somerville.
Ackermann and Meehan continued to send emails back and forth about the statement they were putting out.
This went on for hours. This is how they spent an entire day of work. Good thing there’s no potholes in Somerville that need fixing.
Oh, and here’s some more emails Curtatone’s office received from LOSERS who were cheering him on. Like this one from North Falmouth’s Brian Sullivan, with the subject “Portnoy hate speech facts.”
Imagine waking up every day and being this guy?
Having an arsenal of 10 year old tweets and comments to discredit a website you simply don’t have to read? He must be a real sport when his wife is pegging him.
Here’s another from old man Bill Peverill of Watertown.
“WE THE PEOPLE OF BOSTON need to hold them to the same standard we would hold those whom they hold in contempt.”
I don’t think you or anyone else even knows what that means Billy, but if you’re going to say “we the people of Boston,” you probably shouldn’t have your address as Watertown. Just sayin.
And finally this one from Ryan J.
Oh snap! He archived an old post that they deleted! How did Curtatone ever lose his case with that one?
I contacted Lenny Kesten for comment on the dismissal, and asked who was paying him.
Lenny, I’m really disappointed in you. Ya said a lot of nice things about me in 2017 and 2018 when you were representing the state troopers I went to bat for when their bosses forced them to redact a junkie judge’s daughter’s arrest report. That was a nobel cause, and now you’re reduced from taking money from this scumbag? Come on now. You and I both know this case is in fact over, and Mr. Minihane’s behavior was HILARIOUS! Your client is just a beta male cuck who has pie on his face and ran to you because you had no problem cashing his checks. Win or lose, you still get paid, amirte?
Interesting that he said that no city funds were used, thus implying that Curtatone paid out of pocket for this. Lenny’s not cheap, and Curtatone doesn’t get paid that much for being Mayor of a dumpy little Boston suburb city. But the problem is that taxpayer money was spent on this because Meehan and Ackerman both work for the city. If it were a private lawsuit, as they all claim, then city officials would not be involved at all.
I also texted Meehan for comment, and he was exactly the drip you imagined he would be.
