WBLS Affair: Reprimand of mayor to stand?

WBLS matter to be resolved tonight?
Tonight's Plainfield City Council agenda has two items concerning Mayor Sharon Robinson-Briggs' misadventures funding the August 2010 WBLS broadcast, in which monies received from Investors Bank for one purpose were appropriated by Her Honor for another -- the radio broadcast.

What I am being told is that Plainfield's special charter, which gives the Council the power to fine the Mayor in this matter, omits any mechanism for effectuating such a fine.

What that suggests is that the fine, permitted but unenforceable, will be dropped but not the reprimand.

And you can be sure that Mayor Robinson-Briggs will try to crow from the rooftops that she has been vindicated.

Despite that fact that the check shows otherwise.

Oz, as Olddoc says, Oz.

If our mayor crows, it is because that's what she is, a crooked old crow and we'll be rid of her soon enough. People will come out in droves to vote this woman out. I hope she realizes this. This also shows how we need to change our outdated and ineffective charter. See you at tonight's meeting in the court room.
