Bill Shaikin reports on a popular rumor mill conversation from yesterday:
In a twist that has Frank McCourt threatening legal action, the driver with whom he alleges Jamie McCourt had an affair met this week with a Taiwanese legislator interested in strengthening ties with the Dodgers.
Jeff Fuller presented a Dodgers jacket and an autographed baseball from Manager Joe Torre to Sen. Justin Chou. In turn, Chou invited Jamie McCourt to visit Taiwan.Fuller represented himself as a personal assistant to Jamie McCourt. This is pretty outrageous conduct on Jamie and Jeff's part, something that makes little sense in light of everything swirling around the Dodgers. Either Jamie made a horribly misguided decision that she needs to be publicly associated with the Dodgers, or Jeff made a monumental misstep and is likely the subject of Jamie's lawyers' ire. This is just bizarre.
Frank should channel his inner Judge Smails here and "slap an injunction on them so fast, it'll make their heads spin."
Certainly one of the odder moments in the saga thus far. If you have any thoughts about this, I'm game for a discussion in the comments. This just doesn't make sense.
