You read the title of this post correct.
Facing mounting pressure and criticism over mayor Lovely Warren's hiring of not one, but two bodyguard/personal chauffeurs, including her uncle Reggie Hill, Rochester, NY City Council has finally decided to conduct an ethics investigation.
But there's just one problem.
The City's Board of Ethics, which will be conducting that investigation, is missing three members.
A writer for Saturday Night Live would not be able to write this stuff!
According to City officials, the Board currently has two empty seats, and a member whose term has expired.
Which means that nothing will happen until those three vacancies are filled.
Lovely Warren answers questions.
Brown, an attorney, like Warren, has chosen to retain an interest in his private law firm, which could be a conflict of interest.
So what will happen with all this?
Well, here's something I found which is interesting.
Sort of a look into what at least one Rochester City council member is saying about questions surrounding Lovely Warren's decisions.
Adam McFadden, who is the chair of the public safety has taken to twitter in support of mayor Lovely Warren.
McFadden has posted several messages on social media, including his twitter account where he expresses what the Lovely Warren administration has said, in defending her need to armed bodyguards.
Of course, no one in Warren's administration, including Lovely Warren herself have provided specific details of any threats.
In one of Adam McFadden's tweets to News 8 reporter Rachel Barnhart, he writes, "what's sad about this, not one mayor before her has had to deal with threats & visceral comments from cowards"
In another tweet Adam McFadden writes "There is a difference between someone calling you names in a post or blog, and a real threat on your life or your family's life"
McFadden's vague tweets offer no specific details about any alleged threats mayor Lovely Warren says she has received, details which taxpayers should know if the mayor's obvious goal has been, and continues to be to justify the creation of two positions, totaling over $140,000 which they, the taxpayers will pay for.
And, McFadden's tweets in support of Lovely Warren begs the question, how many other Rochester council members, from the same council who is calling for the investigation, support Warren?
Then, in another display of Lovely Warren's above the law security detail, not only does her uncle Reggie get a free pass from NYS Police after being pulled over fir driving 97 miles per hour, but then he illegally parks the mayor's SUV, blocking a fire hydrant in front of City hall.
