Update on the Pornography Trail

Apparently Dave Helling has requsted copies of LTs emails. However, the emails have to be screened by the City Attorney's office for confidential correspondance. Unfortunately that can take months. So everyone needs to tell Galen to make this a top priority and speed up the process. Those who were on the receiving end of this pornography could come forward and help speed this up too. Unless of course they too forwarded these materials which then puts them in the same boat as LT.

Galen isn't going to hurry up - he works for WC. The Mayor & Council need to man up & take care of this. I know the council everyone is watching this blog - come on, let's get this done! We're watching and in three years we're voting. We won't vote for anyone who covers this up!

Doesn't Helling have enough to write right now? What in the world is wrong with the Star? I had more respect for Dave Helling than I do for the Star, but this is ridiculous. He's not writing a novel, for crying out loud, it's NEWS! We've been writing this blog for months. The scandals have been going on for years. Half the town knows about the corruption - and he can't write a series until he has all the emails and everything? Let's remember, the woman was hotlined. There's more than one copy of the stuff. come on, Dave. Do a little digging.

Galen is not a fan of WAC. He is more beholden to and protected by the council (read the charter). There are other directors who are not in league with WAC - e.g., CPD; OMB; NCS; potential CFO & a certain A to the CM & his spouse.

On good authority, Wayne intends to refuse to turn over the investigation of LT's porn to the Council citing some obscure provision in the new Charter. This is not going unnoticed by the Council....it is being played out like a chess game....slow and methodical....

Obviously, no one has any pornography to share....too bad for all those that seem bent on going in a direction that is a big dead end.

Since the "knowledge" of LT's porn has finally been made known to the Mayor and the Council it has more than likely has been wiped clean and completely covered up by Wayne. Poor Riley has been picked on so much by this trashy blog...if the truth hurts, too bad so sad. Riley go back and watch some of your performances at the Council meetings. You deserve Emmys for some of your soap opera dramas. It doesn't show off anything but your ignorance. I'd give you a quarter to call someone who cares but I don't think there is anyone left that thinks your melodramas are worth a pewter quarter!

This whole PORN-GATE thing is a total JOKE and a complete waste of time. I have it from a good source that this "PORN" is nothing more than two emails forwarded by others which happened to get through the City's filter. Its NOT, REPEAT NOT XXX erotic porn. I think it's ironic that out of the what....4,000 City employees, a single, minority female is being targeted....THIS STINKS OF CONSPRIACY. you other City employees better watch what you receive and forward...don't get too comfortable hiding behind the spam filter.


This whole thing blows....

To Gloria S - that female also got a promotion she wasn't really qualified for, and roosts, like you, on 29. Don't threaten city employees - your credibility isn't that great. Your outrage is not attractive, and you don't know what you're talking about.

So many interesting observations. I find the venomous language and actual cursing about the blog seems to come only from those who don't believe the system is going to work and Roy Greenway is going to present the evidence to the Council as he was requested to do about LT's pornography, and how the process was not followed in her case.

As I've said before....the witch-hunt is over. Greenyway didn't find anything....that was provin in closed session yesterday.

One last thing: GET BACK TO WORK YOU LOSERS!

David Martin at the Pitch blog site writes on October 25th regarding an interview with the porn consuming queen "I asked if she was worried about what might be presented to the council." Her answer "I don't know what's going to be presented".

An innocent employee would have said, emphatically, "NOTHING! There's nothing to report."

Now she's blaming others, threatening to sue the City and playing her "race card" and the "poor little weaker sex female card". What's being Black or female got to do with propagating porn at work? Where's the personal responsibility? You were big enough and bad enough to be Assistant CM, to act as CM in WC's absence and accept the big bucks that he doled out to you. Step up and admit your errors. Learn from Tricky Dick, this cover up business will only get you in deeper and it will follow you the rest of your life. Fess up. Be a big girl.

Seems like folks that WC brings to town have a pattern of leaving town with pockets full of hush money, eh... i mean our hard-earned tax dollars.

Well said 9:56. The devastating blow to me was to see that the Council does not have the brass to do its job. Cauthen really does own the council and can get away with complete abuse of power.

After closed session LT and he must have felt their power surge - and the council emasculated themselves - because they were too tired, afraid and 'sick' and it's too 'personal' and they just didn't want to 'see' what was supposed to be presented to them. Doesn't mean it isn't there. Too many people have laid eyes on this woman's porn, and somewhere, there's someone who hotlined her who knows.

Just remember next time he leaves town and leaves this art history major he lowered HR standards to put in the as assistant TO the city manager and then promoted to ACM and gave her an out of range salary - all with impunity and no HR oversight - IN CHARGE OF OUR CITY - that if something happens to Cauthen - meet our new City Manager - LT Underhill.

Hey, let go of the porngate b.s....and all this talk of who gets what in pay. What a waste of taxpayer money on city employees that have little more to do than complain about others all day.
