After all folks, it is the fall indictment season in here Mississippi. That said I’ve found indictment rumors to be notorious unreliable except in certain circumstances. That said the muckraking community is raking up in Jacktown:
Mayor Yarber: FBI Has Not Questioned Me ~ R. L. Nave
Numerous sources in the Jackson legal and political community suggested that the city’s $90 million Siemens contract could be a target in the investigation, Yarber, who voted to approve that contract, when he was city council president, said today that his administration has “not been any part of any major contract negotiations” in the seven months since he took office and that while he served on the council as the Ward 6 representative, and as council president, he “didn’t have an opportunity to participate in contracting.”
I haven’t posted on it but the Mayoral election in Jackson was a three ring circus and now this. That said I have this from Greece from this past Monday:
Prosecutor seeks trial for 64 in Siemens bribery scandal ~ ekathimerini.com
And of course there is this circa 2008:
At Siemens, Bribery Was Just a Line Item ~ Siri Schubert and T. Christian Miller
Could all be just a coincidence but that rumor mill is on fire at present. Did I mention the indictment rumors swirling here on the coast?
Like the indictment rumors swirling in Jackson, the one involving the Harrison County Utility Authority just won’t go away but salient reporting is now well over a year old with the players sporting much lower public profiles than Siemens. That said I’ve adopted a believe when I see it mentality for HCUA for purposes of reporting on Slabbed but I must acknowledge the persistent rumor mill because it is churning full tilt.
