#2 While it's hard to believe the Director didn't know, it can happen. When I worked at one public hospital. the chief accountant failed to mention to administration that the mayor's budget office had double credited a very large account. He wasn't raiding the account or anything, he just wanted a cushion for hard times and apparently felt the admin couldn't be trusted not to blow it.

#3 "Fear of embarrassment and budget cuts ...."

And none of that money was pocketed spent or "donated" to politicians inappropriately?

We call that a slush-fund.

#4 The City of New Britain (CT) is embroiled in a legal dispute with multi-housing and apartment landlords. New Britain wants to fine the the landlords for 'excessive' 911 responses to their properties. The mayor there has hired a PR firm (known for working on Democratic political campaigns in more than a half-dozen states) for $100K.

The money was "found" in the cash-strapped city's legal defense fund (over which the mayor has discretion).

If Democrats the fear's justified.

They'll blow anything.
