New Orleans cites 'unlawful' activity in suspending former tech chief; Jones plans appeal
Even after we (bloggers mostly) have spelled out how Anthony Jones was systematically being set up as the fall guy for the crime camera scandal....Nagin goes ahead and drops the axe on him.
The letter says Jones' "objectionable transgressions include but are not limited to ... unlawful receipt of a gratuity from Ciber," a city contractor that paid for Jones to attend and speak at a conference in Colorado; "authorizing the preparation and subsequent payment of a false invoice" to contractor LSI Research Inc.; and "intentionally making material changes to cost and performance specifiations" in LSI's crime camera installation bid and Ciber's network services contract.
That's really funny, Ray. How about that fat ass Christmas trip you and Meffert took to Maui on Imagine's dime? Or how about the fat ass trip you took to the 06 Chicago Playoff game on HSOA's corporate jet...then went back and paid 400 bucks for after it became public knowledge?
And as far as "intentionally making material changes to cost and performance specifications"....why did he have to make those changes?
If Jones takes the whole wrap on the crime cameras....it will be a travesty. I hope the AG's office read the IG's crime camera report and threw the city's report out the window.
