The Kimberly Williamson Butler Saga: An Anonymous Comment (from a Former Co-Worker) to TBNO
This comment was posted in response to nolagirl's post on 3 March 2005 concerning the decision of Kimberly Williamson Butler to throw her name into the hat for the 20+ candidate New Orleans mayoral election to be held in April. I don't know how I missed this comment made on Friday (damn Irish Channel Parade weekend)--but I just discovered it this morning.
I don't know who wrote this (nor can I confirm it's authenticity), but ouch . . .
I was fired in Feb. 2004 after running elections for 26 years and watched in horror to what happened in September. After working with?? her for 2 1/2 months, I saw the bizarre behavior and her unwillingness to "do the right thing" as she ignored accounting procedures, even after I advised her of what was required. I was fired that afternoon. Lying seems to come to her naturally.I've already decided if the electorate in this city makes her our next mayor, my house will go up for sale and I will relocate, even it it's only to the North Shore or Baton Rouge. We will all be doomed for failure.

Times-Picayune editorial writer Jarvis DeBerry has this to say about Ms. Butler yesterday.
This letter to the editor also in yesterday's TP says its all.
28 September 2004 Gambit Weekly: ". . . she has not handled herself very well . . ." They hadn't seen anything yet.
