Coup d’état in Quartzsite, AZ *Only Ones Style*
Holy Mackerel! What in the world is this all about?
Apparently the Police Chief owns and operates this place Boss Hawg style!
Short story long: a little tiny town in Arizona is some kind of enclave for an annual Recreational Vehicle conclave.
All goes well until the new Mayor discovers “eight or ten unnamed individuals receive checks from the town treasury EVERY YEAR” The alleged annual amount is upwards of $250,000 DOLLARS and has been a line item expense since 1991!
Suddenly, a secret meeting is held and THE POLICE CHIEF is named Ruling Majordomo by Council Majority as part of a State Of Emergency Declaration. The duly elected Mayor is locked out of city hall and no council member is available for comment.
WOW! Talk about a breach of Professional Conduct! Even if lawfully appointed, the Chief must resign his position as a Law Enforcement Officer and if unlawfully appointed the Chief is bound by his sworn oath to the Constitution to decline the Council’s offer.
Yahoo AP Excerpt:
Foster was elected in May 2010 on a campaign promise to investigate corruption allegations in the town.
He said since being in office, he has discovered that every pay period, eight to 10 paychecks go to unnamed people and that he has been denied access to financial records to find out where the money goes at every turn.
He said that’s been happening since 1991 and amounts to $250,000 every year. “That’s literally millions of dollars,” he said.
