At 9:05 yesterday morning (Jan 11, 2011), attorneys for Mayor Linda Elam (paid for by the City of Mt. Juliet) filed a complaint against the City of Mt. Juliet. The Action in Chancery Court in Lebanon is styled:
Mayor Linda Elam, Plaintiff, v. City of Mt. Juliet, Defendant.
It appears that the City of Mt. Juliet has paid for the filing of two lawsuits against itself in the name of and for the benefit of Linda Elam and Jim Bradshaw.
Mayor Elam has the audacity to state in her complaint that she has filed her suit against the City “at the instruction and directive of the Board.”
It is both a conflict of interest and a misuse of public funds.
They should both be ashamed.
