I not sure if the courts ruling is the right one or not. I worked at goodyear for 34yrs and I knew Lily very well. You can ask anyone who worked for her and they will tell you that whatever she was paid it was more than she was worth.

Typical democrat journalist quoting a blowhard but not getting to the facts or even trying to give an example of what happened.

A piss-poor article.
