I end Kroll day with a final post. This from page three:
Under the pressure of short-term needs, City officials gave expedience a higher priority than fiscal responsibility and came to view the law as an impediment to be circumvented through artful manipulation. A rare and abrupt departure from that culture was found in a whistleblower who, contrary to prevailing attitudes at the time, explicitly pointed to governmental inadequacies and falsehoods regarding the City’s pension system. Like whistleblowers at any number of public companies, her pronouncement that “the emperor has no clothes” was dismissed out of hand.
Diann Shipione vindicated for the billionth time. This one only cost us … well, you know how much. I’ll stop bringing that up.
