Former Princeville mayor Priscilla Everette-Oates and her attorneys held a press conference Friday at the federal courthouse in Charlotte to announce the filing of a multi-million dollar lawsuit against local and state officials amid claims of false allegations in separate embezzlement and Medicaid fraud allegations.
Everette-Oates is asking for about $123 million, plus court and attorneys’ fees, claiming that charges were brought against her in retaliation for her investigation into missing FEMA funds allotted to Princeville after Hurricane Floyd in 1999.
Seventeen felony charges against Everette-Oates were dismissed in March, and the Medicaid payment suspension amid fraud charges against D-POM, LLC, the behavioral health services company Everette-Oates ran with her husband, Duarthur Oates, was lifted in September, citing insufficient evidence of fraud.

Sources say there is a flyer announcing a Press Release to be held in Charlotte NC in the next couple of days and all charges will be dropped. Stay tuned for the actual Press Release once I receive it.
Dang! Sources say Mayor Priscilla Everette-Oates Business padlocked just a few days after her attorney saying he is going to file a $240 million lawsuit against the NC State Auditor, 2 Princeville Commissioners and others.
I did ride by the location and there is nothing in the main street property beside Piggly Wiggly and the old Big Jims.
Big sign out front about property open for lease.
Could share more about what sources say but so good want to keep it to myself.
Well wonder what will be the next chapter?

First of all let me get this out of the way. I was scared writing this because the attorney addressed me on the day that I took this photo and said he read my blog so hell I may be included in the suit too. SMDH!
This past week I find it quite interesting that the former mayor Priscilla Everette-Oates is in the news again whereby she and her husband along with her attorney are threatening to file a lawsuit against some folk. They say they are going to give those they are seeking to sue 60 days to come forward or they going to file the suit. Well hell I say file the damn suit and quit playing. I can’t believe anyone in their right mind would respond to the 60 day thingy because if so they would be too ignant but that is just my ignant opinion.
The lawsuit also claims loss of consortium on the behalf of Everette-Oates’ husband because during the prosecution Everette-Oates stopped cooking and cleaning their home and lost interest in companionship and sexual relations. Really?
So when will it end?
See the following in the Rocky Mount Telegram: Former Princeville mayor seeks $240 million in lawsuit – Rocky Mount Telegram and in the Edgecombe Tribune: Bonner files claims seeking $240M for Everette-Oates.

Everette-Oates lost a 2013 re-election bid a few months after being indicted by a grand jury on 17 counts of embezzlement by a public official. Those charges were dropped by state prosecutors in March. (Source: Read more)
The Political Agitator response: The white lady here was walking around passing out copies of the Press Report. What was funny Attorney Bonner was walking up to folks introducing himself and he said Mr. Dancy, have we met? I said not that I know of. He said I have read your stuff. I said oh so you know me. He said to keep on writing. Damn I felt special. The Press Conference was suppose to begin at 10 AM but the Attorney Bonner said that WRAL was on the way and would be here by 10:19. Then he said they were going to be here by 10:30. Why were they waiting on WRAL? Damn this attorney came to Tarboro from San Diego California to talk about the Constitution, Princeville being the oldest town incorporated by Slaves and being united. He talked about all that Priscilla said she had done such as brought a Dollar General and other stuff to the town that actually was already in place but he is repeating what she say along with Isabelle Purvis Andrews former Princeville Town Commissioner. He also talked about what she was going to bring to the town. He said she was going to still do it because she was going to continue to unite with the folks present. Well damn I just attended the Princeville monthly meeting last night and I don’t recall Everette-Oates being a part of the town leadership in any capacity. I don’t recall her coming to a meeting since the new council has taken office. However I could be wrong. So how in the hell is Everette-Oates going to do anything in Princeville? Watch the video for yourself.

See how WRAL has responded:
The Political Agitator response: I knew it was coming but I didn’t know this soon. I have been reminding folks that Priscilla had some allegations brought against her for her personal business during the same time as well. But I think most folks forgot about those allegations. I said they probably dropped the charges to go after her on a personal note that would be a hell of lot more. So her trailer that she used for her church in Princeville, gone! Well it is going to get gooder and gooder. Like I told one of her supporters and some other folks that this news conference should have never took place today and that she should have left it alone. But nope this attorney whom wanted some publicity in NC came down here and in my opinion insulted her supporters because that is basically all whom were there.
PRINCEVILLE, N.C. — A jubilant Priscilla Everette-Oates proclaimed her innocence Tuesday on the steps of the Edgecombe County Courthouse, six days after prosecutors dropped embezzlement charges against the former Princeville mayor.
Yet, Everette-Oates’ legal troubles might not be over.
The state Department of Health and Human Services suspended all Medicaid reimbursements on Aug. 12 to her behavioral counseling firm, D-POM LLC, citing “a credible allegation of fraud,” such as billing for services not provided. According to DHHS records obtained by WRAL News, Medicaid paid D-POM $1.2 million from January 2013 to August 2014, while another $151,000 in Medicaid reimbursements was rejected. (Source: Read more)
