His behavior was acceptable when everyone was making money. And of course many people did not want to hear it regarding stoppoing this nonsense.

Why did so many people have to be hurt by the obvious housing ponzi scam before these kinds of actions were stopped?

"...With the assistance of attorney Matt McClure, DCA then attempted to obtain a copy of the permit through the Freedom of Information Act. In response, Development Department Director Dan Nichter denied the permit’s existence. A copy of the permit was subsequently obtained by DCA from the Homewood Corp. The permit had been signed by Nichter..."

Does anything ever happen when public employees do things like this? Or is there just so much of it going on that it's accepted as a fact of life?

Things have come full circle for Nichter - just ask The Breadman (Pastor Art Willhite) who gives away food to the homeless. When Nichter ran the Franklin County Development Department he spent over a hundred thousand dollars of tax payer money to prosecute and put a stop to Pastor Willhite and his wife Mary from feeding the homeless. That in itself wasnt the problem - it was the lying and underhanded ways that Nichter tried to do it! Now Nichter will sit in a courtroom facing his sins while The Breadman continues giving out free bread to the needy. Good overcomes evil Dan - remember being told this during The Breadman's trial?

This looser will get no time what-so-ever! Dwayne Carter, Shawn Griffin and Arie Schottenstein sound familiar to any of you out there? Carter and Griffin (no good black scum) did the biggest mortgage fraud scam in Ohio along with the help of some other low-life black scum (Ahmed Bundick) and these creeps got nothing on time. Bundick never was charged with anything but he sure was being paid to bring in the vicims. This looser just like the scum before him have committed white collar crime. White collar crime gets no time folks. This guy is laughing it all off. And nothing will happen.

You hit the nail on the head! Everyone wants to blame the guy who borrowed too much money and didn't manage it right. The truth is that situation received all the press when the property flipping and mtg fraud is the larger culprit. All these bad loans the big companies pushed for and cried when they went bad. Also, Arie Schottenstein, in jail!

Of course he did it. Everybody was doing it. There wouldn't have been a bubble otherwise. Lock him up. Lock the mortgage bankers up too.

A thousand credit cards in seemingly everyone's name but his own.
The Francis scheme,(number one fraud case in Central Ohio history), builking investors who invested in buying HIV victims' insurance premiums (that's a double ugly).
Darby Creek fiasco, letting developers build when it was illegal.
Consistently kicking down the little guy.
Writing $26,000 in bad checks.
Losing his appraisal license by overvaluing properties under highly suspicious nature.
Identity threft.
Overvaluing properties again, for personal gain.
Brokering without a license.
