Planning Department Hijinx

It's only Wednesday, and it is already a tough week for Planning Director John Rahaim. After yesterday's report of a departmental letter calling for his sacking, yesterday Matier & Ross reported that the embattled Rahaim will pay a $1,000 ethics fine for his acceptance of free temporary housing from the relative of an employee after some well publicized domestic issues in 2008. Rahaim also raised a few eyebrows when the same employee was promoted to Director of Neighborhood Planning shortly thereafter. While she may very well be the most qualified for the job, if it looks and sounds like a duck, it probably isn't a giraffe.
