Finally, after quite a few months of silence,something is mentioned about this in the media.
This whole deal stinks.$70K+ of our tax dollars paid to a former official with no documentation, no evidence of service, and until recently, no public knowledge.
It should be said that Mr. Cox was embroiled in scandal a couple of decades ago. As city manager, Cox demanded ticket quotas for the Gainesville Police Department- an unethical and illegal practice. He never denied this, and showed great arrogance when questioned about it. The department lost a highly qualified, educated and experienced chief over the quota issue. This chief was forced out because he had higher ethical standards than Mr. Cox and the city government at that time.
Now, Cox is accused of taking taxpayer dollars under very questionable circumstances. If Cox and Oliver slither out of criminal charges, they should at least refund the money to us taxpayers.

We are soon to find out just how much clout Oliver has. I think he has enough power and clout to have his unethical dealings swept under the rug. It certainly seems his being a big buddy with The Times publisher altered the way they covered the story!

Tom Oliver will get away with it. Our government is so corrupt there is no way they'll let him go down for his corruption. I believe he has enough dirt on the other politicians that they will all collude to cover up this scandal and let Oliver off the hook. At least God will remember their lies, corruption and evil and they will have to pay on Judgement Day!!!
