    Johnson should pay for the audit. He has known for almost a year that he wrote a bad check.
    This should be a campaign issue.

    Johnson needs to figure out what he’s doing. Things have been going from bad to worse since Ray Manley retired. He fires his aide and then he hires his pal to be his aide, they both apparently have serious and on-going financial problems. Johnson portrays the aide as being an attorney which he is not, and tries to justify paying him more than the previous aide on this basis. The aide is making wild statements to the point he has to be banned from social media and censured by the caucus. What next? The district deserves better than this. # crazytrain

    If ANY other city employee did what he did, they’d be fired and prosecuted.
