How people waste money in Charlotte N.C.


Exhibit A.

Charlotte Bobcats Center Alexis Ajinca is being sent back to the NBA's development league again. The key word is “Again”. This will be his second time playing in the development league. There is something wrong with this whole scenario. How do you have a player that received $1.47 million in guaranteed money and they still need development? This is the same guy that the Bobcats selected for their 20th pick in the 2008 NBA draft. Because of this selection they still owe the Minnesota Timberwolves a future first-round pick. Are the Bobcats still letting Michael Jordan make personnel decisions? I hope not because he wasn’t successful in that role for the Washington Wizards.

Exhibit B.

The Mecklenburg County Department of Social Services misplaced $162,000 in donation money. The money was intended to go to needy children. Instead the money went to purchase $340 earrings, and a $300 DVD player. To make matters worse it was reported that a donor called DSS to make a donation. The employee allegedly informed the donor to make the check out to her sister (yes, you heard me, the employees sister). These events did not stop the Mecklenburg County Manager from receiving a $38,400 bonus last month. Or as my wife says repeatedly “$38,400 is a person’s yearly salary!!”
