Remember when city leaders congratulated themselves for fixing all the homes affected by the housing scandal?

Mission not-yet-accomplished.

The city has successfully repaired 41 homes damaged by malfeasance from 2004-06 in the Community Housing Improvement Program, better known as CHIP.

But officials have rarely mentioned another 17 damaged homes, which were part of a different housing-improvement program, funded by a Community Block Development Grant.

 The city has been bilked out of millions of dollars by unethical city employees and their cronies who never did the repairs or did shoddy repairs. What is being done from a legal standpoint?

I agree with outsider. Where is Baxter and Cordray at to look into this?

I see the people in Cuyahoga County, in relation to the corruption probe, sure are up in arms about Cordray. They want to know why he recused himself stating "conflict of interest" yet refuses to tell what the conflict of interest is. They want to know, too, after all that's come up over and over about the prosecutor, Bill Mason, why isn't he being investigated? (does this sound familar or what?) They're even up in arms over that judge Brigette MaCafferty that was nabbed for case fixing with a defendant, Steven Pumper.........why is she still sitting on the bench when Pumper is serving 6 years in a federal pen.

Truth or Dare

This, the leasing of public water-rights off of public parkland to cash-strapped private entities, the reluctance regarding drilling to investigate the coal tar plume, the lack of info. regarding the discussion of a Safety Levy on the ballot let alone the absolute refusal of even considering raising the Adm./Ent. Tax to help offset our costs for Safety Services so that we may bring police officers back and help w/road/street maintenance, the fact that this city still has an interim-everything..........so, on and so on,  is what will be kept in mind come November.

There sure is something that smells about this whole situation.  In my opinion something sure does smell with the Ohio Attorney General's office, too.
