Back to the Central Landfill scandal: The cost of mismanagement, wasteful spending and downright fraud is estimated to have cost Rhode Island taxpayers $75 million.
Not only is the money unrecoverable but criminal charges against top individuals associated with the RI Resource and Recovery Corporation can't be brought at this point! Why is that? I've read about a three-year statue of limitations, which itself is ridiculous when it comes to public corruption. Again, we have an Attorney General's office that seems to be asleep at the wheel. Rhode Islanders should be really mad over this. Instead we have a one-day news story. Where is the outrage?
