Everyone know the discrimnatios case was settled. Indelicato paid to make it go away and did not want to face a jury. I wonder how much she paid?

People Watcher said...

None of this is surprising...Indelicato has a history of trying to destroy anyone who does not agree with her and does not fall in line.

CheshireKitty said...

Really? She paid or the County paid? Yes - if that was case then I wonder how much was paid to the plaintiff.

CheshireKitty said...

It is surprising that Chironis got involved - spoke out on behalf of the person put on leave.

If a person who complains of racial discrimination is then put on paid leave - separated from their job because they complained - that is not a good sign. Although we do not know all the particulars in the case, complaints should not be handled in a manner that more or less communicates "look for another job."

People Watcher said...

I heard a lot was paid. That Indelicato created a horrible environment and Deem was looking for big money. He was a marine so he was a tough guy. But everybody has limits and I guess he couldn't take any more abuse.

It's extremely unfair to make such unverified anonymous accusations and conclusions based only upon heresay, speculation or even accusations contained in a lawsuit.

CheshireKitty said...

The only thing that is speculative is the discussion on how much was paid.

If the ex-marine - presumably a tough guy since he was an ex-marine - filed a law suit about what he perceived as a hostile work environment, I think it's fair to say he only did so because he couldn't take it any more. It is remarkable - an ex-marine couldn't take any more of the hostility in the office and sought redress through the courts. To me at least the law suit is indicative that the work environment must have been extremely torturous.

People Watcher said...

Extremely unfair? I do not think the people who worked there who Indelicato did not like would agree. I get why you deleted my first was over the top..but it came from reality. You are judging me but have you investigated any of this?

Bella Nicey said...

Has anyone investigated any of these allegations currently? I'm guessing the former CFO may have touched a nerve. Its early to judge without having any facts.

It seems that our Supreme Island Leader fits the mold for an Albany appointee. Sheldon probably took care of her too. I guess the waste in the boats, that we see go up the river, has a way of flowing right back to RI.

Bella Nicey said...

If Larry Schwartz appointed her as Supreme Island Leader no one should be startled of her bringing her traits to the island. He is a rude, manipulative leader himself. We can only look forward to his departure in government early 2015 which proves the challenges Cuomo faced with the anti-corrpution panel.

CheshireKitty said...

The Moreland Commission? Read here the rather bizarre story of its creation and dissolution (although members of the commission may have met as recently as June 2014 and the executive director of the commission continues to receive her annual salary).

Calcaterra book trailer

You are certainly right about Schwartz - although his actions would have been consistent with Cuomo's concept of what the commission was: His own creation under his direct control.

I suppose we shall have to wait for the findings of "...the United States Attorney for Manhattan, Preet Bharara [who] ... opened an investigation into the Moreland Commission, the possible interference by the governors office, and into the targets of the commissions' own incomplete investigations...After the commission was disbanded..."

Bella Nicey said...

this article ties Indelicato to Schwartz. Clearly Indelicato's character is questionable and having her in such a post can be damaging. We should definitely keep our eye on this one.
