Chris Donovan explains what it means when he says “I took care of you” to a guy who wants to give him cash in return for killing legislation:
Two weeks later, he shows up – unexpectedly – at the convention. I said, “I took care of you.” When somebody wins, you say, “I took care of you.” When somebody loses, you say, “Sorry it didn’t work out.” That’s just how we talk. Now, the government obviously thought that sounded bad. When I saw the tape, it did sound bad. The way it sounded is not what I meant.
