Worst PDX Mayor Ever

2:00 in the afternoon? While people are at the bar? Dude is carrying a ladder and a bucket of likely accelerant and whatever else in broad daylight? Not typically the move one makes when they're going for an insurance claim. Must be more of a personal grudge deal. But someone's gonna recognize the guy. Weird.
