Worse still for poor Mary Z, this story of incompetence follows last week’s revelation of the key role she played as Chief Compliance Office at the Treasury in losing $16 million after she dumped the only experienced qualified vendor in favor of four inexperienced competitors.
But the real problem for Mary is that this story destroys the myth that she cares one whit about transparency in government.
In painstaking detail, the story paints a picture of a bureaucrat hell-bent on blocking and obfuscating all attempts to uncover the truth by… (drum roll please) State Auditor Joe DeNucci and his team of auditors.
The bottom line?
Joe got to the bottom of the sordid mess and Malone passed into public obscurity until he was thoroughly crushed this year by an opponent best known for failing to act while a sexual assault on a minor allegedly took place right in front on him!
It will be interesting to see if the Bump campaign decides to lay back on this, or whether they will instead make sure every voter knows that Mary is bad news.
If they’re out there, here’s one vote for REALLY BEING TRANSPARENT, and making sure as many voters read and hear about this story as possible.
