West Palm Beach Mayor Jeri Muoio is downplaying an inspector general’s report accusing her of violating state law by appointing a city committee that city commissioners should have appointed. Muoio said Thursday that Inspector General Sheryl Steckler “is supposed to address waste, fraud and abuse, and none of this rises to that level” and “I think there are a lot of really important things she could be doing.”
Steckler struck back, saying Muoio’s transgression “was a violation of state law. Period.” Steckler added: “Unfortunately in West Palm Beach, we’re starting to see a pattern and have already in the past addressed a pattern, where either they’re not following a rule or not following an (attorney general’s) opinion.”
