The Times Free Press Newspaper recently obtained the emails of Mayor Littlefield. The content of the Mayor’s emails removes all doubt that taxpayer resources, staff time, equipment, and taxpayer funds were used to monitor the actions of citizen activist in Chattanooga Organized for Action, Citizens to Recall the Mayor, and others.
The Mayor even investigated citizen activist church affiliations and networks, as reported by the TFP. These are the actions of a tyrannical government out of control.
Being on the list, was not good for several activist citizens that were damaged by the Littlefield Administration, including a local, and well-known citizen activist Lana Sutton. Ms. Sutton was subsequently harassed by the Littlefield administration, and won a Federal EEOC finding that the Littlefield administration is currently awaiting the end of their term for the next city council to payr what is already a guilty finding by the Federal EEOC.
We now have full proof that Richard Beeland’s was in fact fundraising on the city computer on taxpayer funded salary. It is unlawful to use taxpayer resources for campaign purposes, and there will be a complaint filed to Federal Bureau of Campaign Ethics, and Bureau of Justice.
The Mayor and his minions, Richard Beeland, Anitia et.al. actually compiled a list of political opposition and used taxpayer funded equipment and staff time to launch a campaign against citizens using taxpayer resource. They even designed campaign outreach items with taxpayer funded resources.
Fundraising on taxpayer owned equipment and staff time is clearly in violation of state and federal law. Mayor Littlefield, Richard Beeland and the city of Chattanooga government will be legally challenged for proven use of tax dollars for political purposes.
Are taxpayer dollars used for a government website to attack private citizens activists? In this webpage Littlefield attacks Mark West, Chris Brooks and others with taxpayer funded equipment and staff.
The Hoover want a bes are indifferent to laws that prohibit using taxpayer staff, equipment, and time to run private business out of city offices.
I also filed an open records to determine if the EAC office is still running Be Magazine in city offices, using city equipment, staff, and time. We do know that EAC staff browse Little Chicago Watch during normal work hours, and track the LinkedIn in accounts of citizens the openly express opposition to pervasive EAC’s misuse of public money in this Dept. with Melissa Turner, running private businesses out of taxpayer funded offices with Missy Crutchfield, Perhaps if these two would promote the Tivoli and Memorial, the taxpayers would not lose almost a million a year.
