How much was incompetent Thaw paid to leave ARMC
Athens Regional Medical Center, Inc. is basically a secret organization just like any police department in the State of Georgia. The lawmakers in Atlanta love secrecy since then the incompetent jerks can be rewarded with public money and go elsewhere to shaft more unwitting Georgia Citizens. This is the Georgia “Good Old Boy” Way and has been for centuries.
Let us suppose, for the sake of argument, that Thaw had a 5 year contract with a base pay of $ 1 million per year plus many unknown perks. When he was allowed to recently resign, with glowing statements about him from his crony Marylyn Farmer and her dupes on the Board, despite all the horrible stories about him by doctors and other employees at ARMC, Inc., how much money was he paid off to leave quietly and not sue the Board of Directors?
He had completed about three years on his contract. Therefore two years remained for about $ 2 million plus perks. Remember how this works. As soon as trouble developed he would have had his lawyers deal directly with the Board in secret negotiations. The Board does not want a public spectacle so they are willing to pay dearly to prevent bad publicity which was already bad enough. And also remember the lawyer would get about one third of the take. And also remember the income of this multi corporation money machine is of the order of $ 1 billion or $ 1,000 million a year and this is not the personal money of the Board. So there is plenty of dinero to go around and feather everyone’s pockets, especially in secret where no member of the public can know or find out the obscene truth about it all.
Here is likely what Thaw’s lawyer negotiated. A payoff of a minimum of $4 million with a likely maximum of about $12 million to buy Thaw’s silence and agreement not to sue ARMC despite the fact the he is the sole cause of this nightmare in the public hospital of Athens, Georgia. This is not bad is it? And remember his lawyer would get about 1/3 to ½ of this easy money basically extorted from the Board due to fear of a public lawsuit.
In fact, if the truth were known the numbers could even be much higher. Secrecy in government is a very dirty business. I wonder when the duped citizens of Georgia will ever wake up and demand their lawmakers cease and desist from this gang rape of citizens and taxpayers in Georgia by the Good Old Boys in Atlanta. Shame, shame shame on you worthless, corrupt, obscene cowards in Atlanta, Georgia and in the Georgia Supreme Court for sustaining this obscenity in Georgia Government all due to SECRECY. And Shame on every member of the cowards on the Board of Directors for engaging in this gang rape of citizens and patients in Athens Clarke County by their so called “public hospital” here. The good hard working and taxpaying citizens of Georgia obviously love to be fooled and fleeced by their corrupt lawmakers. Those under the Gold Dome today make Talmadge look like a Saint.
