This guy is an idiot!! typical corrupt leaders in Indiana!!

Former EIDD financial director Troy Collier is now scheduled for a jury trial on March 11 in Henry Circuit Court. Collier was arrested in October 2011 on one count of corrupt business influence and one count of theft of more than $100,000 (both Class C felonies) and five counts of theft (all Class D felonies.)
Collierís arrest came after an Indiana State Police investigation into the alleged theft of more than $150,000 from the multi-county EIDD. Collierís employment was terminated by the EIDD in January 2011.
The Eastern Indiana Development District officially disbanded Tuesday, after struggling financially for the past two years.
Member counties are looking at creating a new regional economic development group to replace EIDD, one that might function more effectively and fairly.
Wayne, Union, Rush and Henry counties and the city of Winchester were remaining members of the EIDD, a group thatís been struggling for nearly two years to survive the alleged theft of more than $100,000 from its accounts.
EIDD board members said they were getting a handle on their financial problems this summer, but disbanding became the only option last month when they were unable to provide paperwork required by the federal Economic Development Administration.
The EIDD received about $60,000 a year from a three-year EDA grant from Oct. 1, 2008, to Sept. 30, 2011. The EIDD has payroll records, but didnít have records that showed how much time was spent on EDA activities, Wayne County Councilman and EIDD member Jeff Plasterer said.
Dissolving the organization absolves the EIDD of any responsibility, Plasterer said.

Is this unusual behavior within the typical not-for-profit entity? Perhaps not! Much has to do with lack of knowledge at the corporate ED level. Should an Eexecutive Diretor be held culpable in such a matter? Should a leader not be reviewing the financial matters at least quarterly? How long had this little embezzlement /mishandling of corporate funds scheme been going on before being brought to the forefront? "Unable to provide paperwork...." Again...where was the leadership and oversite?
