Scott Wagman comments on death of Tampa police officer



ST. PETERSBURG -- Mayoral candidate Scott Wagman is already acting like he is mayor.

On Friday, he sent out a statement acknowledging the death of the Tampa police officer who was killed last week.

It read:

"We mourn the tragic shooting death of officer Mike Roberts of the Tampa Police Department. There is no such thing as routine police work and the passing of Cpl. Roberts underscores the risks that all police officers take in defending citizen's safety. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his wife and son, as well as, Cpl. Robert's colleagues as they deal with this tragedy."

Meanwhile, Wagman was at Georgie's Alibi a few hours later fishing for votes, according to the Facebook status of the popular gay bar at 7:46 p.m. Friday: Georgie's Alibi is excited for a fun and crazy Friday night! Scott Wagman will be hanging out promoting his campaign for Mayor of St. Pete...come out and meet him! Also, tonight, porn stars Dallas Reeves and Justin Wells will be in the building after 9pm, dancing,...hanging out, and signing autographs. Don't forget happy hour goes till 9pm with 2-for-1 drinks, and after 9pm all Bacardi and Bacardi Flavor drinks are only $3.75!
