Niles Said What?

I noticed in the most recent News Herald article, court clerk, Lisa Niles, finally broke her silence on her ongoing legal action against Loudon County tax payers and boy did she tell some whoppers.

The News Herald quoted Ms, Niles as saying,

ďAs Iíve said all along, Iím willing to compromise so we donít have to go through this again,Ē Niles said.

Let's go to the big fat lie meter and see what it says. Ding, Ding, Ding, Ding, the big fat lie meter says this is not true.

I'd be curious who she has been saying this to all along. Certainly not the county commission. Quite to the contrary. She personally rejected every offer made to her to avoid this frivolous legal action she has taken against the tax payers.

The News Herald also quoted her as saying,

ďItís well-documented that Iíve made countless efforts to work with the county on sensible resolutions outside the courtroom, but obviously compromise is a two-way street,Ē Niles said.

Let's go back to the big fat lie meter and see what it says. Ding, Ding, Ding, Ding, the big fat lie meter says this is not true either.

Well, I would sure like to see those DOCUMENTS where she has made COUNTLESS EFFORTS to work with the county.

She was given two new, full time employees and two new part time employees and raises for all her existing employees and she got up and walked out of the budget meeting. The fact of the matter is, she has never one time addressed the full commission with her request. Compromise is a two way street. Problem is, she's not even on the street.

Then there's this. The News Herald also quoted her as saying,  

Niles said she would be willing to settle outside of court.

Well, it's been nearly three weeks since the judge tossed the law suit and as of Monday night, she has made no offer to settle anything.

Speaking strictly for myself, I've got a settlement offer for her. I would be willing to give her the two new, full time employees and two new part time employees and raises for all her existing employees as was already offered to her and she personally pay all legal expenses she cost the tax payers.

How's that for a compromise?

Maybe her political advisors who told her this lawsuit was a good idea will help her pay the legal bills.
