And Let’s Not Forget the Mayor’s Prior Check Incident
Under my post about the new check situation involving the mayor, Tommy Cranston reminds us of the first, infamous check matter, this one also with the City of Providence triangulated in but starring both of the Cicilline brothers.
the 75K check
Yeah. Remind me: did that get paid back to the city?
Now, regardless of Attorney General Patrick Lynch’s helpful
whitewash finding of no criminality in this matter (it’s amazing all of the wrong-doing he’s failed to see during his tenure; he’s kind of like a professional wrestling referee in that regard), isn’t this money still owed to the city?
Would this state of affairs – the blithe non-repayment of these funds – be tolerated if the check had been tendered by anyone other than a family member of the mayor?
I didn’t think so.
And David Cicilline wants a political promotion?
You really are kidding me.
