DOT Comm'r Gena Evans: “I firmly believe we can’t continue to invest in road projects based on political reasons. That’s why I’m always in trouble.”
Now come on Commissioner, don't be like Fox News and claim to be fair and balanced when this is not the case.
What about the relationship? As noted in a 4-25-08 post entitled "Damaged goods? (1) Bookman writes: DOT chief's stumble compromises her credibility; (2) Shipp recalls that "Dirt shows up more on a white hat":
And even The New York Times has a story on the topic:
Ms. Abraham had said on Friday that she would resign. But she backed away from that position after Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle raced to the department’s offices and called her into a meeting in a stairwell there, with a guard posted outside the door.
The revelations about Ms. Abraham and Mr. Evans surfaced just three weeks after she sent a memorandum to all department employees saying she would not tolerate misconduct or violations of department policy.
“The sheer number of offenses that we are discovering is staggering and embarrassing to the department,” she wrote in the memorandum, which was dated March 31, and she added that she would not hesitate to fire employees for unethical or unlawful behavior.
Ms. Abraham later admitted that when she sent the memorandum she was already romantically involved with Mr. Evans.
And who doesn't know about the "salacious" emails that has been "the" topic in the capital city as of late.
Please understand that I am not calling for your head. But I am suggesting that you don't blame all of what is going on on others, and be responsible enough (edited my initial "man enough") to shoulder some of the blame yourself.
