If this article is at all correct, and the implication from the response of the City Attorney indicating that the City might pay Lewis in order to avoid a lawsuit, I find totally offensive.

This issue should be immediately brought out into the open; no settlement should be made without public oversight.

This is the first evidence of sound judgement I've even seen from Mayor Kelly. She got it right this time, Jim Lewis does act like a psuedo-council member. And why won't he say what his business is? It's so weird.
