The Straw Buyer broke the news that City of Miami Assistant Fire Chief Veldora Arthur was indicted on mortgage fraud.
Had it not been for The Straw Buyer, the local media would not have covered this story.
Once again, blogs like ours, Al Crespo, The Straw Buyer, and others are reporting what the local news media will not.
Veldora makes a $184,000 salary and has a compensation package in excess of $300,000.
Best think about it? She gets to keep her job!
What would happen to you in the private sector if you are served with a federal indictment?
And why should Ms. Arthur be any different than any of the City of Miami commissioners that were removed from office under indictment?
That Ms. Arthur is not put on IMMEDIATE suspension without pay is a sign that the City of Miami does not care about taxpayers, but protects its $300,000 own.
