WARNING- This video contains language that some viewers may find offensive.
Chris was followed by Teddy Parham, 6th District City Council candidate, who described her work and the point at which she became vilified, off-topic for the stated press conference. She cast a wide range of accusations towards individuals who I mostly do not know, and of which I cannot pass judgement upon the correctness or truthfulness of her statements. You be the judge.
