  1. What about the “outside” office staff? I believe they could be very helpful, to get a better idea of just how corrupt this guy is. How lucrative would it have been if Richmond County voters bought his song and dance about moving the arena to the old mall site? I remember that he worked the idea pretty hard.

  2. You are a horrible mayor and should be standing beside Sias in court. You have tried your best to hide your actions, spend money on frivolous things and refuse to produce receipts nor follow the procurement process set by law. You are a condescending gas bag and a typical political hack. You even used a non profit charity as your own personal play fund. How you can say you’re a preacher is beyond me. You should resign immediately. What a hack!

  3. This investigation needs to probe much deeper. The taxpayers of Richmond county have a right to know where and who the money was dispersed to. All of this. – investigation, forensic audit needs to happen prior to any vote on any budget. The money that is wasted and misappropriated needs to be accounted for, every last penny. Taxpayers have been in the hook long enough.
