Audit of former Pontiac mayor’s alleged misspending heads to feds

 The City of Pontiac has voted to send the results of a damaging audit to the feds.

That audit found former Mayor Deirdre Waterman misused more than $1.6 million in tax dollars, accusations she firmly denies.

Waterman feels the situation is dirty politics, and what it is is an outside forensic audit that was limited in scope done by an outside firm. The results of which, at best, suggest poor management and fraud at worst.

“Facts is facts (and) truth is truth,” said Pastor Rodney Tolbert. “You can’t get around it. It doesn’t make a difference who did it, but it does make a difference that people in this city has allowed my resident at Liberty Missionary Baptist Church to pay taxes that’s been misappropriated, misused, miss-funded, and whatever word that you want to use. It’s wrong.”
