"I'm the thanksgiving turkey."

Those words coming from Doral City Manager Joe Carollo -- who says he expects to be fired Monday night at a special meeting.

The meeting taking place at 5pm, and is being billed as an "administrative evaluation."

At a news conference Friday, Carollo drops an accusation that relatives of councilwoman Christi Fraga tried to offer Mayor Luigi Boria her vote to let Carollo go in exchange for payments.

That sum of money is unknown.

Carollo says Mayor Borgia told him that he reported the incident with the State Attorney's Office -- but hasn't heard anything since.

Carollo's term as city manager has been contentious between him, the mayor and council members.

Fraga is expected to hold a news conference following tonight's meeting.
