That’s what he told me,” Cecilia, a retired trade official, and economist, said, before adding: “Fred’s politics burn a little hot, but I’ve never known him to violate the law… While I believe, as he said, he was on the Mall that day, I don’t have any evidence, nor will I ever ask him, unless he tells me, where he was after he was on the Mall.”
