Dear fellow tax hikers, there is so much scandal at Cincinnati City Hall we don't know where to begin. For once we are actually speechless and suffering writer's block because it's hard to keep it all straight. To compensate, we'll list the scandals and let you loyal readers take it from there.
- Cincinnati administrators withheld a memo from City Council and the public that was critical of the excellent Cincinnati parking deal. It says the city is paying far too much in fees for the services they are receiving.
- Cincinnati paid over $300,000 for this consultant, only to suppress his findings.
- The Port Authority first tried to delay the memo's release, then said they wish they had seen it sooner, then drew upon their vast expertise in the parking industry to declare that this $300,000 consultant was wrong.
- The Port Authority refused to allow a Cincinnati City Councilman into their offices to deliver a letter about the growing scandal.
- Later it came out that the Port Authority's Vice President accused the city of lying about the parking deal all along and wondered why the Port was involved.
- Oh yeah, now the Port wants a mere $27 million from this parking deal for their own projects. Roxanne Qualls, naturally, supports this.
There it is. If you need the links they're easy enough to find. Take it away tax hikers. We've got a box of Twinkies to devour.
