Friday brought more threats that the Mayor would be impeached.
Since the letter from the US Attorney seemed to indicate that there was no criminal conduct in the phone taping scandal. Some South Bend residents contend there was no need for the Mayor to demote the Police Chief and to fire the Communications Director.
Citizens for a Better Government member Mario Sims said, “I would think that any reasonable person after receiving the May 31 letter would immediately fire the people who gave them that advice. As well as then immediately acting to resolve this issue by putting Miss Depaepe back into place and putting Chief Boykins who have done nothing wrong.”
Sims said the letter from the US Attorney was the last straw proving that the Mayor could not be trusted.
