Citing a lack of transparency that torpedoed his Papal Candidacy, Tom appeared at the steps of the Court House to announce that he has filed suit to void the recent election of a new Pope.
Tom challenged the vote as Cardinals were forced to vote, did not have to show photo ID and that there was a hint of black in the alleged white smoke. Until the matter is resolved, Tom will set up a Pope in Exile office in a leading Rome bar.
Vatican observers has noted that Tom’s candidacy is up in smoke.
Late Breaking News: After a hastily arranged Conference Call, Tom announced that he was withdrawing his suit and will hit up Carnival with Pope Francis.
Who knows with the right pictures, there could be a new election shortly.
