As always he is lucky.Anything he might be convicted of pertaining to this matter would more than likely be a federal crime due to the source of the money.

Let us hope the NEW saying on State Auditor's web page is true and is followed in this case for all involved.

"No one is above the law. We hold all stewards of taxpayer dollars accountable, to the highest degree of the law."

The auditor is already looking into the DMR. He knows, I am sure, that any fraud he uncovers will be another notch on his belt when he runs for the govs office.He is very serious about this. The Walkers do not have the clout they once thought they had.And when the first indictment or target letter is served up their friends will flee faster than an Auburn fan at the Iron Bowl.The clock is ticking very slow.Info is being gathered by many.Taxpaying citizens are mad as hell.Time to cut the deal.

Further examination of state auditor website reveals there are 5 different messages on homepage. Comment #44 above was just one of 5.

All 5 would appear to show he is serious about his job. Bring up homepage various times to get different messages.

I would bet good money(my own,not CIAP money)that Pickering and crew are sharpening the legal knives and will be slicing and dicing very soon.I have been told by a very reliable source that several people have come foward and have provided some very good information to the authorities.Some of this is from the Bolton Building.Time for others to start stepping foward and tell the truth about how they increased the value of useless realestate to over a million dollars an acre to help bail out dumb business people who had ongoing financial issues.I do not need to say names because they know who they are.

Kevin Kavanaugh, Scott Walker Appointee, Sentenced For Theft

MILWAUKEE A former associate of Gov. Scott Walker convicted of embezzling money from a veterans' group has been sentenced to two years in prison.

A jury found Kevin Kavanaugh guilty of theft in October. Prosecutors say Kavanaugh stole more than $51,000 intended to help veterans and their families.

The 62-year-old Kavanaugh apologized in Milwaukee County Circuit Court Friday. Judge Michael Guolee called the apology "worthless."

Kavanaugh will also serve two years of supervision after his prison sentence and must pay more than $51,000 in restitution.

As Milwaukee County executive, Walker appointed Kavanaugh to head the county Veterans Service Commission. Prosecutors say he skimmed money from phony withdrawals from a veterans-service organization.

Kavanaugh is the fifth Walker aide or associate to be convicted in a secret probe. A sixth is awaiting trial.

That is not the reason INFO posted the article.The article tells of fraud/theft like we are seeing at the DMR and what will happen to those people who are convicted of doing this.CIAP money is not to be used to help family and friends unload property they are in financial trouble with.

Must be nervous: You gave the explanation for the post as good or better than what I could do. Thank you for your continued very good insight into our local situation.

Reason: For background or reference info to give interested readers info on penalities for wrong actions with money at other places.

Wow, It is truly fishy business that hit the Sun Herald today about the FOUNDATION run by Billy Walker that bills our state enormously amounts of money for two yachts that are certainly money laundrying pits! The State is billed by Director Billy Walker from DMR to pay astronomical amounts of money to maintain two yachts in Biloxi that are owned by a bogus foundation that was set up by Billy Walker to fleece the state of taxpayers money! Yep, it's time a whole bunch of Good Ole Boys pay the piper for becoming multi millionaires at the expense of tax payers!! Keep this investigation going. God only knows how deep their illegal dealings are!! Power & Greed, Southern Style!!

This is like the saying"Deja vu all over again".Cedar Point relived.You got the Kingpin of local scams,David Harris involved in many aspects with boats,repair services,realestate,non-profit s and experiance.Brad Lemon's company providing the insurance at non competative rates.Frank Palazzo and Tom Reynolds with more worthless land,political connections and experiance.And now they invited Billy Walker to the scam who is not very smart based on what we know so far.I do not know if he had any involement in Cedar Point but we all know the others did.I hope somebody is trying to figure out where the 7 million went that the oil companies paid to DMR or Walkers dummy foundation.Notice how he named it to sound so official.And how about David Harris telling the Sunhearld that he did not have any records, they got wet/flooded because he stored them at ground level at the harbor when he had any empty three story building at same location.He thinks everybody will say Oh, OK.Wrong.He is going to be taken to the mat this time.He got away with the Cedar Point scam but this time people are fed up with him and the rest of this gang of thieves always trying to take from the taxpayers.They will not be so lucky this time.

Because they are not Public Servants....Most public employees are public servants and spend their lives working for the people. These crooks are political parasites. I bet the republican party is so ashamed of this bunch. How did this happen? Isn't the GOP the conservative party that doesn't want big government? I am confused.
How did they let people like Walker, Baby Walker, Joe Zeigler, Billie Boy Hewes, to name a few of the clan....call themselves republicans? It's an absolute grace to the old guard that were the republican party. These are just a group of insecure wannabes that aren't man enough to make money the old fashioned way....instead, they have to steal it from their neighbors...which happens to be all of us Taxpayers! I say, show no mercy....throw the book at them...and don't miss a one of them involved in this huge conspiracy. And if the Republican party gives a hoot about their organization, they should jump in and help with this investigation and boot the scums out of the GOP....and I know the democrats won't take them.

Tidelands


Tidelands and Liaison Office Grant Management Coordinator: Joe Ziegler

What is the Tidelands Trust Fund?

The Tidelands Trust Fund, which is comprised of funds derived from the lease of tidelands and submerged lands, is administered by the Department of Marine Resources as mandated by the state law. The guidelines for administering these funds, as stated in Title 29, Section 15, of the Mississippi Code of 1972, are as follows:


"Any funds derived from lease rentals of tidelands and submerged lands, except those funds derived from mineral leases, or funds previously specifically designated to be applied to other agencies, shall be transferred to the special fund. However, funds derived from lease rentals may be used to cover the administrative cost incurred by the Secretary of State. Any remaining funds derived from lease rentals shall be disbursed pro rata to the local taxing authorities for the replacement of lost ad Val orem taxes, if any. Then, any remaining funds shall be disbursed to the commission for new and extra programs of tidelands management, such as conservation, reclamation, preservation, acquisition, education, or the enhancement of public access to the public trust tidelands or public improvement projects as they relate to those lands."

What are Tidelands?

Those lands which are daily covered and uncovered by water by the action of the tides, up to the mean line of the ordinary high tides.

For further information regarding Tidelands Leases, boundary distinctions, and more please visit the Secretary of State's website at http://sos.ms.gov .

P. S. Mr. Zeigler makes $86K/year plus perks to steal from the Taxpayers of this State. The Phone company relieved him of his duties for doing the same thing there as he is doing at the DMR now. And his new title is "Special Projects Officer", and he is Bill Walker's right hand man....second in command. Not educated in any way for that position, by the way.
And Zeigler's wife, Connie, is employed on the 5th floor of the DMR with a "Title" and is being paid salary. And so is Baby Walker's wife, Trilby Ryals. She is on the 6th floor of the DMR in Public Relations....recently hired.
