Sentences that keep going after a quote's attribution.


My boss keeps doing this. I'm pretty sure it's incorrect, but I can't convince him and I can't find any authoritative sources that address it. Here is what he does:


"This lets lets us get an idea of what's going to happen in the industry in two years time," Geoff says that allows them to position their business to better service their clients in the future.


So he'll write the attribution -- "Geoff says" -- and then he will just keep going with other things the guy said. Please confirm if this is incorrect.
