Well, the hangmen are at it again, and this time, they're attempting to string up a regular, career service, employee.
Their latest victim is the Director of the Criminal Division, Leigh Ann Fisher. She had been invited to yesterday's Finance Committee to explain the efforts her office makes to collect restitution. Before she could get started, council prez Ann McHale ambushed her.
Citing vague allegations of "condescending" emails and "complaints", the imperious Ann McHale demanded to know what is going on. Fisher asked for details, but McHale declined, stating that information is classified. In America, you may have a right to face your accuser, but there must be some exception in Northampton County.
What McHale is really doing is pandering for more union votes in a quest to become next county exec. If that involves stepping all over an office supervisor, too bad. What the green T-shirted lynch mob known as AFSCME fails to comprehend is that she'll step all over them, too, when it becomes politically expedient.
If you chop down all the trees in the forest to get the devil, where will you hide when the devil turns on you?
