But now in today's JG story he admits that he went much further than that:
Didier said although he told Larmore he would not be returning as an attorney, he said nothing has been officially determined, and it won’t until the council’s closed-door meeting.
Wait a minute here. That is exactly the accusation that councilman Pape levied and Didier denied. I would say that telling Larmore he won't be returning is more than "discussing the aspects of going with one attorney versus having two". Video doesn't lie. Furthermore, how could Didier tell Larmore he won't be returning if nothing had been officially determined.
Didier is using nuance by employing the word "officially". The truth is these decisions were made in advance and Didier went ahead and told Larmore before the council even had a vote. This is not how council should operate and using the excuse "this is how it's always been done" doesn't make it right...
