The New Babbage Free Press received this statement today:
As should come as no surprise, I am the owner of many companies throughout our fair city. For this reason, it would be near impossible for any business to transpire in this city, without my being involved to some capacity. This is not corruption, this is the burden of being overly philanthropic. The newspaper needs to sell paper and charges of corruption move units, that does not make a charge true.
Mr Osgoode Underby, Personal Assistant and Advisor to the Mayor
