Auditor says city attorney paid illegally
The way Chattanooga paid its city attorneys for most of the past half century may have violated the state's conflict-of-interest laws, and the city now could try to recover any illegal payments, according to an internal audit report released last week.

Mayor Littlefield is "not interested in revisiting the past," or discussing restitution for a HALF CENTURY of conflict of interest cheating of taxpayers, is that right or am I reading that wrong?
So if I commit a crime is it ok for me to say, "Listen y'all, I know I've been cheating you for fifty years and by cheating I mean skimming and stealing. Yes, that IS a crime, technically, but I didn't know I was doing it and besides, since I've been caught, I STOPPED! Yes, just like that, I have corrected the "problem" and now we can start with a clean slate. Right? Why do you have to bring up the past?"
Presumably violent offenders can use this defense as well? "Yes I murdered that old lady YESTERDAY, but she is dead now and putting me in jail won't bring her back."
Robbers, "I did knock off that Mr. Zip, but shoot, that was in December and my kids needed a Christmas tree...I won't do it again! I have a job now! Huh? Construction."
Rapists? "Oh yes I did rape that co-ed but she was a whore. Did y'all see her running around naked? Yes, I did burn her clothes-I thought she was dead! Ok, ok, ok...look, that was five years ago. I've not raped any women since. Yeah, I know I'm in jail. But I promise I won't rape any MORE if you just let me out. OK?"
Child molesters? "I stop when they get they permanent teeth. They ain't gonna remember nothin'. Then, there's that statute a limitations. We gotta put the past behind us, forgive and forget, turn the other cheek. Speakin' a cheek, somebody needs a spankin' mmmm hmmmm."
