We hate to pat ourselves on the back for this one, but when we endorsed Christopher Smitherman for City Council in 2011, we had no idea he would stand quite as he has on this one -- perceptive, prescient and principled.
It made no sense from Day #1 to loan $1 million of City monies to a couple who have a $49,000 federal tax lien, but this crazy Council voted to do just that.
Then, yesterday, WXIX reported that there was a warrant out for the arrest for one of the owners for non-payment of another judgment. The warrant was issued by Judge Fanon Rucker.
Here, the Enquirer reports that Liz Rogers has turned herself in to the Butler County Sheriff, and was released on bond.
Council is still standing behind the $1 million loan.
