Latest Cornell Jones Items
A federal judge this week tossed a defamation lawsuit by reformed gangster Cornell Jones, whom the D.C. attorney general has accused of misappropriating more than $300,000 from the city's HIV/AIDS program for renovations on a proposed job-training center that instead was used to open a strip club.
The director of a nonprofit group accused of misappropriating more than $300,000 from the District's HIV/AIDS program to renovate a strip club used derogatory and homophobic terms on his radio program to describe two openly gay members of the D.C. Council, saying efforts to hold him accountable were part of a racist agenda.
The D.C. Health Department does not have copies of its own records of a nonprofit company run by a convicted drug dealer that received more than $400,000 in grants to renovate a job-training center that was never completed.
A nonprofit group run by a convicted drug kingpin who campaigned for Mayor Vincent C. Gray is the focus of an investigation by the U.S. Attorney's Office, the FBI and the D.C. Office of the Inspector General into its use of public funds, according to a letter by a senior official with the District HIV/AIDS Administration.
D.C. Council member David A. Catania has asked the city's attorney general to investigate whether a nonprofit group directed by a former drug kingpin applied for and received city funds to renovate a warehouse to help HIV/AIDS sufferers, then used the money to prepare the property for sale and eventual use as a strip club.
