By now, the whole world knows that Williams, who spent much of his time in Orlando, FL (on the district’s dime!), ran his County offices completely into the ground. And, I’m told, the likes of Tony's girl Peggi really helped out.
Now get this: one of our sources down at the county informs us that the County has “demoted” Buff, “cut her pay from $120K to nearly $96K,” and has now got her doing “clerical work.”
Our source, Pen Pal, speculates that the Board of Supes (five blowhardian Republican creeps, four of whom have at some point, like Williams, retained Phil “ethically challenged” Greer as their lawyer) has agreed to save Buff “and Williams’ other Executive Assistant” from terminal downsizularization. But that hasn't prevented this demotion.
This raises a question often raised during the Williams/Rackaukas/Spitzer mini-saga: why are the Supes bargaining with Williams at all?
What has he got on those people?
But my guess is that Williams possesses more cards than just that one. Who the hell knows.
Pen Pal reminds me that Williams had agreed to leave his office on January 20, 2012.
But that doesn’t mean the fellow will actually hold up his end of the deal!

‘Clues That Lead to More Clues That Add Up to Nothing’, HEATHER HAVRILESKY, New York Times
“The first three seasons of ‘Lost’ may have approached the imaginative charms of the original “Star Wars” trilogy, but the next three were nearly as awful as George Lucas’s catastrophic prequels. You could easily picture the stumped writers of ‘Lost,’ helpless in the face of an ever-growing pile of unsolved mysteries, madly skimming Wikipedia entries on space-time geometries and black holes.”
