If you missed last evening’s Metro Council ad-hoc committee meeting on Animal Services, it was tons of fun. And not just because Jim King got his rear end handed to him by his own attorneys several times over. If you wish to watch the entire meeting, click here to stream it or download it.
Just want the juicy bits? That’s what we’re here for.
Here’s the Jim King nonsense:
We hear King is now pandering for Fischer because he fears the release of dirt stemming from his daughter’s custody battle.
Also hear from members of the ad-hoc committee and from King’s own staff that King is attempting to railroad the investigation and is pressuring members of the committee to wrap things up instead of digging in for the truth.
While Jim King played the role of excuse maker and apologist, Kelly Downard was the opposite and pushed hard for cooperation. Downard not only ripped on the obfuscation from the Fischer Administration, he promised to go to war for whistleblower protections and demanded Fischer crew stop blaming the messenger(s):
Refreshing, to say the least.
Here’s a look from Kevin Kramer about Sadiqa Reynolds’ unbelievably irresponsible behavior with official government documents:
Kramer brought up a great point about determining legality of what’s gone on and what Fischer’s done to cover it up.
Here’s one of the committee’s attorneys explaining that they have subpoena power and the ability to compel documents and witness testimony:
Yep, it just got real.
And you know things are bad when Tina Ward-Pugh gets bent out of shape:

The next meeting will be in a couple weeks and you can expect all hell to break loose between now and then.
