Detroit Public Library fires exec at center of FBI probe

Detroit — Three months after an FBI raid, the Detroit Public Library has fired one of its top administrators at the center of the federal investigation over kickbacks.

Chief Administrative Officer Tim Cromer had been on paid leave from his $145,323-a-year post since mid-November, when the FBI raided his office at the library's main branch and his West Bloomfield Township home. Cromer was fired Wednesday by Detroit Public Library Executive Director Jo Anne Mondowney.


First of all, what library head is worth $145,000/year? Why isn't the Occupy crowd protesting this greed?

Secondly, every aspect of Detroit is rife with crooks. Not even the public library is safe.

Yet, the denizens of that fine city keep electing Democrat after Democrat.
