Bibb Commissioner Storms into Cumulus Offices, Gets in Krok's Face

Mon, 22 Dec 2008

Bibb County Commissioner Joe Allen flipped today (Monday, Dec 22)...

Apparently, he was on the first floor of my building, eating at a restaurant....we're on the 5th floor..he hears second-hand that I was talking about him and his "Kids Yule Love" charity...didn't even hear it himself..

..he storms upstairs to my General Manager's office, John Rodriguez. He demands an immediate meeting with me..

I say I'll give him 10 minutes, but that since he's threatened me to my General Manager, I'm recording the conversation for broadcast...

Right off the bat, he goes nuts..he stands up at one point, comes across the room to me and gets in my face...I felt threatened as he appeared ready to strike me..and he's about a foot taller than me.

UPDATE:

A quick note:  After playing this with my wife...I have to agree...she's right...the one thing I did wrong here: I stooped down to his level.  Instead of egging him on in this and calling him any names, I should have just been decent toned and said very little..he'd have hanged himself anyways.  So, please accept my apology for getting down on his level and acting like a baby, like he was...two kids on a play ground.

Let me tell you this:  This does not change my position on Joe Allen at all.  He's a coward and a bully.  THIS is how he behaves behind the scenes all the time.  He has now been exposed.  That is his issue.  For me, next time, I need to pray before heading into what I knew would be a tense, confrontational meeting with a bully who has power and is not used to having people stand up to him...my bad.  But I will never back down..just need to tweak my style a scosche.

SUPER UPDATE:

Late yesterday, my General Manager, J-Rod, informed me that  Allen  was told second hand information, and  had been told by two clowns in Dublin that I was disparaging his charity, Kids Yule Love.  Not true.  After my GM told him that he personally listened to the audio, and that that's not the case, he replied, "Oh, I guess I owe someone an apology.". 

So this guy just storms Bibb offices, half cocked and not knowing what the real story is, acts like a bully and baby...and then realizes he's wrong?  THIS is what we elected in Bibb for LEADERSHIP??  WOW.

All of the audio is on tape..and on this website. Click here

everyone knows allen has a temper. evidently krok does, too, and they both got mad. but since krok is a misinfotainer and allen holds public office, allen is the only one held accountable.

This is the same thing I went through with the Monroe County Superintendent, Anthony Pack, in my Salon. He started yelling and pointing his finger at me. I think Joe Allen has a brother in Monroe County.

WE LOVE KRIS KROC BECAUSE HE DOESN'T COVER UP LIES AND SIDE WITH POLITICIANS. HE IS THE ONLY TRUE REPORTER THAT TELLS JUST LIKE IT IS AND MAKES THESE POLITICAL SNAILS SQUIRM AND SCRATCH THEIR JOCKS FOR CRABBY LIES. GO KRIS! WE LOVE YOUR SHOW.
