Martha Shoffner buzz

Posted By on Mon, May 20, 2013 at 8:37 AM

Does Martha Shoffner have any friends? Former employees with unhappy tales of their time in her office would be surprised.

The tales are mounting. Hurled phones. Employees sent on personal errands with the office credit card, including to fetch meals for her dog. But the core issue is more likely to be along the lines of what one former employee told me — campaign finance reports lacking disclosure of significant PAC contributions. The contributions were legal. The question would be why any were omitted and whether the money was accounted for. This line of inquiry was suggested to federal investigators by the employee.

BTW: Chuck Banks confirms via e-mail that he is representing Shoffner. He said he was too busy at the moment to talk. Shoffner's at the courthouse, awaiting court scheduling before Magistrate David Young.
