A little embarassment

City Controller (and mayoral hopeful) Jonathan Saidel must be a little embarassed that he, charged with overseeing proper use of city funds, missed a bunch of fradulent financial claims by one of his top aides. Apparently this guy (Anthony McNeil) lived outside the city, in defiance of city rules; used a city car for work, including giving friends a lift; got in an accident while on personal business but claimed workman's compensation and city repayment of his girlfriend's hospital fees; and involved Saidel by getting his signatures on letters supporting his claims to have been up to legitimate activities. Um, oops!
