Some Venice residents are demanding answers and calling for Mayor John Holic to step down after a photo of him posted on Facebook shows what appears to be him groping a woman. Last week, a Venice resident sent the photo to the mayor and city council, demanding answers. Holic told WFLA-TV that he was with his wife in downtown Venice back in February when a group of people in pirate costumes came by. Holic says as the picture was being taken, the woman grabbed his hand and put it on her chest, which he claims “wasn’t even a body part. It was clothing over a balloon.” He maintains his innocence, but did apologize to the city for “putting myself in an awkward situation.” The woman in the picture allegedly refused interview requests, but put on Facebook that she was just having fun, and apologized for the uproar.
