Martin Austermuhle, Editor-in-Chief, DCist.com Confirms Fentys Thefts

Recommended Posts

Martin Austermuhle, Editor-in-Chief, DCist.com has just posted confirmation of what all had said that Fenty did steal money from elderly residents and there was a fight on the WTOP radio over it.

 

 

This story was in the Post a few months back. Apparently, Fenty did not represent the interests of an elderly client he was charged with serving, but admitted guilt and paid required fines. I doubt this will play a big role in the campaign, though.

Also, Eric Linden of Mayor Williams press office can confirm the same.

WAKE UP PEOPLE...SAM BROOKS IS A SICK MAN!

Hold the phone there, MissGloverPark. I did not confirm that any theft occurred. I merely confirmed that a story existed regarding Fenty and an elderly client he represented. Read it for yourself:

 

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/conte...av=rss_metro/dc

 

Fenty was not accused of stealing funds, rather, of a "failure to guard the assets" of his client. He was issued an informal admonition by the Office of the Bar Counsel, their lightest sanction. He admitted fault and the case was closed. This is not theft. Maybe negligence, but that's a far cry from theft.

 

I fail to see how this proves that Fenty or Brooks are cheating the people of Ward 3 or the city.

Martin,

 

I respect you for your never ending, fine jourmalism but it is a matter of the choice of words but it was still a THEFT no matter how you want to phrase it.

No, if you read the article you'll notice that Fenty did not steal anything, rather, he neglected to properly account for his clients' funds, resulting in a loss of approximately $15,000. This amount was eventually paid back. I know these are details, but they are important details.

 

And you have yet to explain how this proves that Fenty and Brooks are cheating the people of Ward 3 and the city.

Martin,

 

Correct me if I am wrong but I believe that Mayor Williams suggested that the neglect was more a misuse that benefitted Mr Fenty as if Mayor Williams was implying that Fenty used the money for his own benefit then covered up and only offered to repay once it was known.

 

This reminds me of a similar case at the DC Court of Appeals where an attorney named Terry Kolp did something identical where he mishandled the money for several clients but DC Bar Counsel determined that he used it to build a porch onto his house at 408 5th Street SE but later on was allowed to call it not a theft but a neglect although the Court of Appeals suspended him indeffinitely which you can check the DC Bar Association s record as Kolp plead mental illness to get out of paying back $25k.

 

Maybe Martin it is all symantecs but Fenty would never have given back if what he did had not been uncovered.

Angela,

 

No one has stated, much less been able to prove, that Fenty sought to keep the money that was taken from the elderly client he represented. In fact, the Post article states that the money was taken by the family of Fenty's client. You can't accuse Fenty of something that he did not do unless you have the evidence to prove it. Do you?

Wow, this only gets better and better all the time. So we have this new poster, "Angela" who off the cuff cites an attorney as it allegedly relates to allegations that the Rees corps are making against Adrian Fenty (and Sam Brooks). Hmm, I wonder:

 

Rees v Kolp, No 97-CV-2853

 

Does anyone have any information about the above cited personal injury case?

 

Any axe to grind on the part of the Reesists against this Attorney/Doctor Kolp?

 

Do tell, do tell!

B. Frank, you are ROCKIN MY WORLD, man! I salute you, whoever you may be, for continuing to ask questions and dig for the truth...despite the by now predictable schoolyard retaliation from He Whose Name(s) I Shall Not Speak.

 

I await the day when actual working journalists start following your lead. Until then, you're doing us all a service and I for one thank you. The truth will out, as the great detective once said.

Martin,

 

You may be right but if you had heard the discussion between Williams and Fenty on WTOP then you would have to admit that the way Fenty spoke, he sounded like he had taken the money but gave it back. Possibly it was a poor choice of words he used but what he said was what it sounded like.

DCist Martin,

 

You have your facts wrong. The paper reported the matter one way but several radio shows said that Fenty and his real estate broker wife sold the home of a client out from under her with the permission of family members who did not have the legal authority. The court ruled such although the bar association did not pounce on him for it.

 

I am sure that Cropp and the other candidates will bring this issue up again.

Go and get a copy of the DC Court of Appeals written opinion on this issue and that is where they found Fenty s actions to have constituted a misappropriation and not an error.

If you call Mayor Williams office and ask to speak to his press office but specifically to a guy named ERIC then he will tell you when and where Mayor Williams said Fenty stole that money and Fenty did admit it live on the radio but said he gave it back.

 

Go agead and call Mayor Williams office.

Clearly, this link to Jonathan Rees' job application letter/resume works fine:

Oddly, Rees himself has posted in several places that people can read his resume on his website. But Rees removed his resume from his website a long time ago. Why?

Looks like another phony cut and paste job you guys are doing to mislead people.

 

Furthermore, that is not Rees phone number and never was.

 

Nice try, but I bet now you deleted that link to be able to turn around and acuse Rees of it.

I REST MY CASE...BROOKS IS GUILTY OF AN INTERNET SMEAR CAMPAIGN AGAINST REES AND OTHER CANDIDATES!

 

Let me quote Sam Brooks per the Post article:

 

Sam says he will put down his lemon and vanilla pies if Rees and the others put down theirs.

 

 

HOW MUCH MORE OF AN ADMISSION TO MUDSLINGING BY BROOKS CAN YOU GET?

 

You people are so stupid that if GOD came along and badmouthed BROOKS you would probably accuse GOD of working for REES.

 

 

READ THIS AGAIN AND GET A LIF YOU MORONS
