    Drama erupts at special Airport Board meeting where the Airport Board has voted to terminate CEO Turkia Mullin.

    The resolution is effective immediately. Each member of the board had a vote on the resolution. Only two members of the board voted against the resolution.

    The board has appointed Chief Financial Officer Tom Naughton as the interim CEO. The measure passed 6 to 1, with only Bernard Parker  voting against the measure.

    Rest here

    Now prosecute.  All of them.

    "High profile attorney Deborah Gordon says that even if the board wanted to jettison Mullin, they may not have the power to do it without paying out the $750,000 severance, the remainder of her contract. It is not clear if the board has provided enough cause to negate that provision."

    yeah, but she was saying in that interview that her severance was 6 months..  DOH

    ...what isn't widely reported (at least here around Detroit).

    "The controversy surrounding Mullin began after she took a $200,000 severance payment from Wayne County when she left as chief development officer to take the airport job.

    It quickly grew with revelations that she got $75,000 from a nonprofit funded by businesses that had county contracts and that she was paid thousands of dollars in unused sick and leave time.

    Since then, the FBI has begun an investigation into county operations. Also, the Free Press revealed that Mullin's claim of bringing $5.5 billion worth of investments into the county was inflated."

    And unlike the previous AG who was doing...whatever during the last big Wayne County scandal, Scheutte at least acknowledged that there was some funny business afoot and that the he would act if the feds let him know that state laws were violated.

    For the time being, I'll give him the benefit of the doubt and see what he does when the feds hand him enough evidence on a silver platter to wipe out most of the Wayne County Democratic Party.
