you really need to know what Wendy is like before you judge JP. She has destroyed many good men by her trickery. Check the story on Coell Hickman, the former Clay County Executive. She ruined him and his family with this same type of deception. She comes across as very trustworthy and they do trust her. But she always plays games and manipulates like crazy. There are many more stories on her but I do think John was blindsided and thought he could trust her. Never seen anything like her and how she destorys people lives to get what she wants.
I have to disagree. I think john is a big boy and I believe one can't be fooled unless they want to be. I also believe employees at UCDD are trying to cover their on political affairs. Not to worry all will be revealed.

You go Windy, we all know you are going to spill your guts and tell all you know and then some, whether it is true or not...that is what uneducated, uncivilized, sleezy trash does. Watch out John, she is about to tell all, how you have chased her and are so in love with her and she can't get rid of you. We all know the truth and so do you.

This Friday is the board meeting. The 30 day suspension is up on Sunday so it will be interesting to see if this board does the right thing.

In my opinion Pelham, Foster, Blaylock and several other board members including Cannon, and Graham should resign. Let's remember their names come election time. If you look at the performance evaluations Pelham and Foster gave Askins you realize that they were covering for her or faulty in their duties, either way they need to be held accountable. There is only one way to restore faith in public office, and that is to get those that can not be trusted out.

Well rumor has it that Pelham and Foster feeling sorry for Windy and rethinking their decisions...I know CRAZY, but if this is true, these two need to be removed from office immediately. Of course, this could be another one of those nasty rumors started by you know who ex ed of ucdd. Foster and Pelham when will you two say enough is enough. Have you not seen enough lives destroyed and hurt,if not you two do not belong in a decision making position in my opinion. Rhonda and Family so sorry you are going thru all this, you don't deserve this and it is not fair to you all.

Copy post from Smithville forum---

Channel 5 report states in part:

Wendy Askins resigned last month as she faced an investigation into the mismanagement of agency funds.

But NewsChannel 5 Investigates has learned that Askins has now filed for unemployment compensation, claiming that she was the victim of a hostile work environment.

The claim was filed exactly one week after Askins resigned. But, instead of accepting responsibility, she pointed the finger at the people around her.

"This is just a crazy claim," said Ben Cunningham, head of the anti-tax Tennessee Tax Revolt group.

Last month, as Askins made her dramatic appearance before a committee that had been investigating her, it seemed like the end of a chapter.

"I sincerely regret that it has become necessary for me to submit my resignation," she said, reading a prepared letter to committee members.

After 17 years as UCDD's executive director, the controversy over that million-dollar Living the Dream home had Askins about to face a vote over the alleged misappropriation of hundreds of thousands of dollars of agency money.

"I think that was just the inevitable thing that was going to happen anyway whether she made the decision or the board did," Putnam County Executive Kim Blaylock said at the time, agreeing that Askins was "on her way out."

Little did the UCDD board know that, within a week, Askins would turn around and a file a claim for unemployment.

"I mean, to come back to the taxpayers now and expect more money just adds insult to injury," Cunningham said.

At the time, Askins told board members that "I find this resignation necessary because of the firestorm that has been created by Channel 5 news media and a few others."

Now, Askins has told the state Department of Labor and Workforce Development that "she quit because of situations involving harassment and/or hostility from co-workers, employers or customers."

## you can read or watch the rest of the report here: http://www.newschannel5.com/story/17368496/as ...

After Askins got all those PERFECT evaluations from Mike Foster and the other board members I guess she is wondering why everyone turned on her.

Wonder if Ms. Askins will aledge sexual haressment to her complaint?

Since Askins resigned, I haven't heard anymore about Pelham. I am sure this will be the end of it. Since he is over the investigation! Kinda like the fox watching the hen house! He is a disgrace to the community and his family.
