"As for my future, these are misdemeanors. They don't preclude me from being involved in the political process in the future. And I will be involved in that when this is over with, without question. Maybe I'll run for mayor. But if were to do that again, I would do it from a really serious, aggressive position.

"I think that a lot of these problems that I have are because I got people in the system who don't want an outspoken, aggressive individual like myself out there who digs, scratches, claws, and goes to the wall for the disadvantaged, the throwaway people, the homeless, the people who don't have opportunities to succeed. I'm probably one of few people who could lead the community, with a degree of confidence that we could stop the crime out there.

"I am in good shape, and I am going to do something big when this is over. I don't know exactly what yet, but something."

"I know that some people are happy to see me in hot water, but that just verifies that when I was doing my political thing, I was doing a good job. You're not doing a good job if people aren't hating. When you're doing a good job for the people you represent, it's going to piss some people off because there's never enough for everybody.

"Still, it's not a very pleasant thought to know you could be going to jail or prison when you understand have to go there without having had an opportunity to really prove yourself innocent, to prove that the prosecution was wrong.

"No, I don't like that thought at all."
