Last week, we reported that Dillon’s three campaign accounts were wildly out of balance and compliance with state campaign finance law. Dillon called it a computer snafu. Just a few weeks prior, on the same day Dillon pulled the trigger to forcibly dissolve Buena Vista and Inkster school districts due to their fiscal insolvency, the Treasurer and his ex-wife filed matching his & hers restraining orders against each other in an embarrassingly public “he said/she said” spat. And just a couple of weeks before that, Wayne County Judge Susan Hubbard told Dillon she was going to garnish his wages for up to $10,000 in unpaid child support . The Treasurer’s attorney, James Harrington, brushed it off as an error due to “confusion at the Friend of the Court.” His ex contends they were only confused because they didn’t get their money.
Now he’s back in the news as the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office decides whether to press charges filed against him by his ex-wife over “assaultive behavior” from an allegedly drunken encounter at her home last month. Again, Dillon’s attorney simply claimed the complaint was “without merit”.
Oh, Andy, Andy, Andy…if you weren’t so very destructive to our core democratic principles, you would be truly entertaining.
