I knew the lies were going to be instant!
The City of Bloomington did NOT uncover the fraud at the Coliseum. They were warned many times. David Hales did not do his job – I hope Joliet is thrilled with their choice for City Manager.
The fraud could not have happened if the City had performed even a slightest oversight of the asset they forced citizens to pay for. David Hales should be listed in the indictment along with everyone who has been on the Council since I started writing about the fraud YEARS ago. The two exceptions were Judy Stearns and Kevin Lower who attempted to force an investigation when professional hockey turned into junior hockey. They were shut down by Hales, Renner and the rest of the Council.
I have copies of three of the indictments and 3 mug shots.
Renner is conveniently on medical leave and Hales took another job.
