Worcester City Councilor Michael Gaffney gets shit on a lot by the local media, particularly Worcester Magazine, which is 100% in bed with Mayor Joe Petty and the McGovern Crime Family. Granted he is a politician so he’s more than fair game from the local media. But today Worcester Magazine (which is free because no one would ever buy it) basically called him a white supremacist. We’ll blog about that later. But just understand that for now Gaffney has reached his breaking point with these people and he’s ready to spill the beans. It turns out that Wacky Walter Bird is actually a borderline sexual predator who uses his position as editor of a free newspaper to try to coerce his underlings into sexual flings. Oh yea, he’s also in a serious relationship with another woman with whom he lives. The following is an email we received from Councilor Gaffney. His words are italicized followed by our commentary in bold…..
I’ve been contacted by three women that have been harassed by Walter Bird, Editor of Worcester Magazine. Each instance occurred at different times. In each instance Mr. Bird had a position of power over them. His advances made them uncomfortable, but they were concerned about any adverse consequences.
While I have many screenshots, most reveal the identity of the innocent parties, so those that you are about to view were capable of being shown without exposing them.
Sometime ago, I read a comment about Mr. Bird posted by a woman on Facebook. I reached out to her as I was aware that Mr. Bird engaged in the same behavior with another woman. I’ve removed some of the text as it would identify her. Here is her take on Mr. Bird:
Does this look like the kind of guy who women would call “creepy?”
All I’m saying is, when that guy buys you a drink, you make sure the bartender hands it to you. Because he has tiny hands and it might spill!!
I called him a “dog.” She responded “He’s a predator.” She had more to say about her interactions with him, but the comments would identify her.
There is a second woman involved, but to describe her interaction with him would reveal her identity. But I’ll make this very clear, he was in a position of power over her and used it to try to score a date, classic sexual harassment. If Mr. Bird wants to deny his behavior, I will post it. The point is, Worcester Magazine’s Editor engaged in sexual harassment. Mr. Bird knows that this woman still has the message and would do well to be honest about it.
Now to the third woman and the screenshots exposing Mr. Bird.
The first states “I get turned on by you sometimes.” In context, the woman involved is half his age, Mr. Bird was in a relationship with another woman, and he was a reporter allegedly offering the young woman to do a story on a project she was working on, so it’s actually pretty nasty:
In a moment you will read the rather tragic back and forth between the young woman and Mr. Bird. Mr. Bird allegedly told this young woman how he pleasured himself thinking about her. She advised that he approached her to tell her this while she was at her place of employment. To be clear, Mr. Bird had influence at her place of employment as well.
He hinted at performing the act on another occasion in this screenshot “and I … you know”, “I think of how you smell .. and your hair”, “and things I’ve wanted to do”:
What woman wouldn’t be turned on by the thought of this man giving himself the dishonorable discharge?
“and I don’t remember you being in Belgium.” Clear sign that she is changing the topic, take the hint.
Now, you will note that the above screenshot comes after the following screenshots. There is a reason why they are not in order. It is not to confuse you, but Mr. Bird mentions another woman and for her protection, she will not be mentioned.
But, back to Mr. Bird’s advances. It appears the young woman really doesn’t want to be sexually involved with Mr. Bird:
“Maybe that’s as far as I wanna take it.” Another hint.
You’d think he would’ve picked up better advice from hitting on chicks when he met this guy:
Come on Walter. If you’re gonna try to score a 22 year old chick you gotta keep your ass in shape:
We all can’t be blessed with Jurassic pork like your boy Ron Jeremy.
But Mr. Bird pressed on:
“Rock the place” and then we will discuss “all the stuff going on…”
“We get our freak on.” Let me remind you that this young woman could be his daughter.
I think you’re being a little harsh on him Councilor Gaffney. Young chicks can’t help themselves around him. He’s irresistible. Even ask him:
“You’re crazy”, “certifiable.” Still not getting the hint.
You can form you own opinion on “Oh so worth it” and “devastatingly handsome”, but the “You’re crazy” and “certifiable” are not an acceptance of his advances.
Worcester Magazine, is this the type of person you want leading your paper?
By allowing this behavior, you are condoning it.
Seriously, how can this guy keep his job after this? Better question – when does the boycott of Worcester Magazine start? Not boycotting the magazine itself, because no one reads that anyway. But Worcester Magazine is FILLED with ads. Every local business in Worcester’s got a spot in there. They charge over $1,000 for a full page ad that no one sees. I have no idea why, but I guess local businesses just like pissing money away when they could be making cash-money by advertising with us.
So when are the SJWs gonna start going through Worcester Magazine and harassing and boycotting all their advertisers? This dude is a pervert. He clearly has a thing for unwanted sexual advances on women he does business with, and has power over. Seems kind of hypocritical to bother the good folks who advertise on our blog while giving a pass to the businesses that finance this sexual harassment factory.
If you haven’t read this blog we wrote last month, then read it now. It shows Wacky Walter on a local cable access show hosted by City Councilor Gary Rosen. Skip to the 24:12 mark to hear his thoughts on why Turtleboy should not be linked on the City of Worcester’s website, but Worcester Magazine should be:
“Let’s stick with real media here, OK?”
Real news? You once wrote an article about your friend Steve Quist starting a Facebook page:
Here’s another quote from that video:
“Wacky Walter: Can we just stop having that discussion? When you start blogging about fat people with tattoos, who beat up their sisters, we’re not talking about news anymore, so let’s just drop that. It’s an entertaining blog if you like that stuff. It’s not a news site.”
Yea, we’re not real news because we blog about terrible people, many of whom are fat, have tattoos, and have beaten their sisters. Walter is much classier than that:
No wonder he thinks the only reason we won Worcester Magazine’s “best of Worcester 2017” award for best local news source by making hundreds of fake accounts and voting for ourselves:
The people and the fake accounts that he put up voted for him, just like they voted for Mike Gaffney. We were at our party and it was time to award best councilor and best news outlet and nobody clapped. I had to tell them to clap. You won’t hear that because they won’t report that. So when they say ‘we were voted best,’ it’s only because they voted.”
Of course this blog is hardly a surprise to anyone who has been following Turtleboy for a while. Check out the level of maturity he has with people who comment on Worcester Magazine’s Facebook page – spoiler alert – he calls everyone who is mean to him “Aidan”:
Hey Walter – don’t poke the turtle. Or Councilor Gaffney!! Maybe instead of calling him a white supremacist you should be covering the fact that he spent the entire day today cleaning up Cookson Park, which has been completely neglected like many parks in Worcester, by Mayor Petty, who you endorsed in 2015.
Something tells me Worcester Magazine won’t be endorsing Gaffney for Mayor in November. Can’t say I blame them. Terrible people are attracted to other terrible people.
We urge you to support the following local businesses.
