After all his crimes against the State of Maine This Evil man is allowed to keep his STATE PENSION of $ 5,288.51 a month.
I am mad I have to pay taxes to house this Scum for TEN years. Pay for his electric. dental, medical, and an education,and food and TV. OH YES go to prison and get a degree in Maine. All the criminals want to come to MAINE.
The people that are responsible for changing the State of Maine laws need to re-read them. This is what they get paid for. Wake up you dumb asses. until the law is changed, we need to attach this pension to repay the state. There are loop holes to keep him from getting a pension. Then change the law that all criminals forfeit their Benefits
Paul Violette, sure he is crying, he got caught. It's not for remorse. The rest of them are just as guilty watching him steal and not reporting it.
Who is trustworthy? What has happened? Is it the world we live in, with no respect, no religion, no scruples and morals no pride.
Here he is PAUL VIOLETTE:::
The scum of the world, He should face a firing squad. The same could be said of the board. A board that allowed its executive director to spend more than $186,000 and didn’t ensure that his vacation and sick time were monitored clearly wasn’t fulfilling its duty to the public.
An exhibit to the complaint details gift card purchases since 2003, when the inappropriate expenditures were said to begin. The list is a result of forensic audit ordered by MTA leaders
after the Legislature’s Office of Program Evaluation and Government Accountability issued a report citing questionable expenditures at the agency. Get a load of this
On one day — Sept. 15,2004 Mr. Violette purchased more than $35,000 worth of gift cards to Hyatt hotels, according to the complaint. Another $10,000 was spent on Hyatt gift cards on Dec. 9, 2005; $15,000 worth of Fairmont hotel gift cards were purchased a few days later. On March 25, 2005, nearly $27,000 was spent on gifts cards . Another exhibit lists the gift cards that could be shown to be given to charitable groups, the reason Mr. Violette said he bought them. (more BS) Is everyone in Govt. offices blind and stupid ?? The Government Oversight Committee could only track records for $26,550 worth of donated cards, including $4,000 worth of Fairmont cards and $4,800 worth of Hyatt cards, all of which were donated to Maine Preservation. More than $73,000 in “fraudulent charges” are detailed in a third exhibit. According to the document, $15,000 in Fairmont gift cards were redeemed at the Frontenac Hotel in Quebec City during Winter Carnival in 2006. On Oct. 5, another $8,700 worth of gift cards were used there. Mr. Violette often traveled to International Bridge, Tunnel and Turnpike meetings around the world. During these trips, which the board approved, Relais and Chateaux gift cards were used in France and Spain and Hyatt cards in Bermuda. Mr. Violette sometimes traveled to foreign countries days before the meetings, the document says, likely adding to hotel and restaurant bills. It could be going on in your town.
