Politician: Loophole Saves Me from Mohawk Bet

11/12/2009 2:25 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Congressman Robert BradyLike any crafty politician, Congressman Robert Brady (D-PA) has found a way to flip-flop on an important issue ... and we're talking about the Mohawk Challenge between Brady and Congressman John Hall (D-NY19) over who would win the World Series.

As we all know, Brady's Phillies lost ... but his press secretary tells TMZ: "The Congressman will not be shaving his head."

Here's the deal. Brady's peeps say the Mohawk Challenge was rendered null-and-void because the only person we could find to take the bet was Congressman Hall -- who happens to be mostly bald. So that technically doesn't make it a Mohawk Challenge, does it?

Send a message to someone you're not on friendly terms with any more -- or someone who needs to see that an alliance with you could be quite valuable! Diplomacy comes naturally now.

What a weasel. He needs to man up and pay off his bet. I feel sure had the Phils won, he'd be asking for the payoff. Just ANOTHER politician shooting his mouth off and PANDERING to the public. What a tool!

Come on people, Brady is a politician and politicians are known to lie. Furthermore they make (big) promises, but for some reason seem to forget these promises.

Oh boy... when were growing up, didn't ya just hate the kid that would make crazy challenges / bets and then refuse to carry through when he lost the bet??? So what... did they all grow up to be politicians??? This guy is flat-out a punk and hopefully people will see his true colors and he won't win re-election. Then, he can take his ball and go home. " Not fair... I don't wanna play " ... jezz grow up ya little whiner!!!!
