Former mayor files multi-million dollar lawsuit – The Rocky Mount Telegram

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.  (Source: Read more)

Princeville NC – When Will It End? Oh But It Ain’t Princeville, They Just Happen To Be From Princeville So Don’t Get It Twisted! $240 Million Dollars Lawsuit

Photo from my file: Attorney can’t remember her name, Attorney California-based attorney Charles Bonner, Priscilla Everette-Oates, Everette-Oates husband.

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.

Photo from my file Attorney can’t remember her name, Attorney California-based attorney Charles Bonner, Priscilla Everette-Oates, Everette-Oates husband.

A former local mayor filed a multi-million dollar federal lawsuit today against local and state officials claiming false allegations in an embezzlement investigation.

Former Princeville Mayor Priscilla Everette-Oates is asking for upward of $240 million, claiming her arrest and prosecution were retaliation for her investigation into missing FEMA funds for flood damage after Hurricane Floyd in 1999.

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)

Video/Photos: Ignant Column: Attorney Charles Bonner Holds Press Conference On Behalf Of Priscilla Everette-Oates Former Mayor Of Princeville To Talk About The Charges Being Dropped But Wait A Minute See What He Talked About

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.

Cleared of embezzlement, ex-Princeville mayor facing Medicaid fraud allegation – WRAL

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.

imagePRINCEVILLE, 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.

(Video) Ignant Column: Former Princeville Commissioner Calvin Sherrod Came To Princeville Town Meeting To Ask Them To Apologize To The Former Mayor Priscilla Everette-Oates Because The Charges Were Dropped Against Her

Ya’ll I gave you a 1st and Final Warning to remove me from your Social Media pages because when I post information on my blog it automatically goes to my Facebook, Twitter and LikenId accounts. I am sick and tired of ignance and if I know better and don’t say anything then I am just as ignant or guilty as other folks who are promoting ignance. I ain’t going to delete anyone because I am going to say what I mean and mean what I say and it is up to you how you receive it. But again you have options.

Damn here we go again former Commissioner Sherrod had the audacity to come to the meeting to ask the commissioners to apologize to former Mayor Priscilla Everette-Oates. He said I know ya’ll been looking at the news and ya’ll need to look her in the face and apologize. He said and Calvin Adkins former employee with the Daily Southerner and the Edgecombe Tribune and now interim town clerk, you used to work for the newspaper and you need to apologize too. I know you were just writing the story but it was not right. Sherrod said there will be a press conference tomorrow and Everette-Oates will probably sue some folks.

So how are they suppose to apologize to the former mayor? Are they suppose to go run her down? Oh maybe they are suppose to show up to her press conference. Not!

Last week charges were dropped against Everette-Oates and noone can understand why charges have been dropped. LGC did an investigation of the town government and found discrepancies in the use of the town credit card by the former mayor. It was turned over to the SBI and the former mayor was charged. The case was then turned over to the courts. There were several court dates but they were continued and then on last week the charges were dropped and it was reported due to LGC withholding evidence.

There will be a press conference held by the mayor and her crew this morning at 10:00 am in front of the Edgecombe County Courthouse.

imageDamn I was mad because I thought after Sherrod said something to Adkins that he was going to say something to me since I videoed the meetings and posted them on my blog along with making comments. One thing I do is I video, give my ignant opinion based on the facts as I see them but I give others the opportunity to challenge my opinion by allowing them to look at my video online for free. Hell you can’t get it no better than that.

Well Sherrod didn’t say anything to me. I was ready because I was ready, I had something for him. I was going to tell him where he could go.

I don’t wish anyone any bad luck and my thing was if the former mayor had done anything illegal the thing to do would be to just pay the money back.

All I got to say is something just ain’t adding up but I don’t make the news, I just report it so I will continue to report the news the good, the bad and the ugly.

I am for justice no matter who it is for or against! I have no permanent friends no permanent enemies only permanent interest!

Now I don’t make this stuff up, look at the video for yourself. SMDH!

Criminal charges dropped against former Princeville mayor – The Tarboro Weekly

The Political Agitator response: I find the following article to be quite interesting. If the (Local Government Commission) held evidence from the district attorney then they need to be dealt with. “It wasn’t until her political enemies got involved did the drive for prosecution begin,” Bonner said. Wow! I wonder who these enemies were? Bonner added that had the allegations and subsequent charges not been raised against Everette-Oates, Princeville would have its own energy company now that would be generating $250,000 for the town. What? Where did that come from? Well can’t wait to see what information will be shared during the press conference on Tuesday.

PRINCEVILLE – Prosecutors have dropped criminal charges against former Princeville Mayor Priscilla Everette-Oates.

Everette-Oates was arrested in 2013 after a State Bureau of Investigation probe into the town of Princeville that was launched at the request of the district attorney’s office.

In a statement, prosecutors reportedly said the resulting embezzlement charges against the former mayor were dropped “in light of new information” that determined prosecution was “not in the interest of justice.”

Neither Everette-Oates nor her in-state criminal attorney, Ryan Stump of Charlotte, could be reached for comment Wednesday.

However, another of her criminal attorneys, Charles Bonner of San Francisco, raised issues of impropriety that led to charges being filed, Everette-Oates’ arrest and the subsequent efforts to prosecute. (Source: Read more)

Video/Photos: Princeville NC – The Princeville Ignant 3 Mayor Priscilla Everette-Oates, Mayor Pro-tem Isabelle Purvis-Andrews And Commissioner Calvin Sherrod Reunited This Evening And Reminded Us Just How Damn Ignant They Have Been And Still Is

Click on photo for more photos

imageThe Princeville Ignant 3 reunited and called a Special Call Meeting today at 5:00 PM 2 hours before the 7:00 PM regular monthly meeting which was moved up due to the Christmas Holidays.

The Princeville Ignant 3 Mayor Everette-Oates, Mayor Pro-tem Purvis-Andrews and Commissioner Sherrod reunited and called a meeting to rescind a couple of minutes to some previous meetings. However the main meeting is the one about a letter that was written to the Local Government Commission (LGC) that they say would not have allowed LGC to investigate Mayor Everette-Oates legal charges. Sherrod voted along with Commissioner Ann Howell and Commissioner Gwendolyn Knight not to send the letter but now since Everette-Oates, Purvis-Andrews and Sherrod all lost, they came together to do one more ignant thing that sent them out in style.

The current attorney tried to explain to the Princeville Ignant 3 how they had to present their case but Mayor Everette-Oates and Purvis-Andrews tried to prevent some kind of ignant way that made no sense. Purvis-Andrews was the move the motion maker while Sherrod was the 2nd man. Mayor Everette-Oates was motion maker. The current attorney told Mayor Everette-Oates that she could not vote because the statue states that if any person actions is pertaining to such that they could not vote. In other words Mayor Everette-Oates could not break the tie. But her ignant ass kept making motions, Purvis-Andrews moved the motions and Sherrod 2nd them. These damn fools had no respect for the attorney and carried out the meeting the way they wanted to.

There is more but you have to see it. Mayor Everette-Oates said how about the others actions they were named in the investigation and she called Commissioner Ann Howell’s name, former Mayor Delia Perkins and Commissioner Gwendolyn Knight. The attorney said what did we say about calling names? She said I don’t don’t care I am going to say it.

Then at the end Mayor Everette-Oates said everyone present could enjoy the refreshments after a couple of presentations. See who got the presentations.

Meeting adjourned shortly before 6:00 PM.

Photos were taken off the walls in the Town Hall on last night I was told. See what Commissioner Gwendolyn Knight had imageto say about the pictures and also see what former Commissioner Linda Worsley had to say about the special called meeting.

Stay tuned for the swearing in of the new Mayor Bobbie D. Jones, new commissioners JoeRoam Myrick and Pamela Ransome.

Princeville NC: Everette-Oates pleads not guilty to embezzlement charges – Rocky Mount Telegram

TARBORO – Outgoing Princeville Mayor Priscilla Everette-Oates pleaded not guilty Tuesday to 17 counts of embezzlement by a public officer.

Senior Resident Superior Court Judge Milton Fitch tentatively set a trial date for March 10. Everette-Oates was arrested in August on 17 counts of embezzlement by a public officer and released on a $7,500 unsecured bond. She is accused of using a town credit card to make questionable purchases totaling more than $5,600 between August 2010 and January 2012. (More)

Princeville NC – Auditor finds money misuse by mayor – Daily Southerner

imageResponse: This is a damn good report by this Calvin Adkins highlighting some great points to let you know just how ignant Mayor Priscilla Everette-Oates is. I thought she was ignant but this confirms that something has gone wrong since she has been in office this term. It is clear that she needs help. Although I have followed (videoed) the meetings faithfully since she has been in office, after reading the 31 page report I am trying to figure out why would one use a credit card that is traceable unless they just didn’t know or they just didn’t care that every transaction is documented with the time, place card used and the amount. The lawyer had stopped attending the meetings so I see why because he was not getting reimbursed for travel expense. Mayor Everette-Oates used to talk about the former Mayor Delia Perkins just about every meeting when she first took office so therefore she must have known she was going to get ignant and try to blame the town’s financial problems on the former mayor. But the Mayor Everette-Oates didn’t realize that she is making the former mayor look good since she has been trying to discredit her, Commissioners Ann Howell and Gwendolyn Knight who served under Mayor Perkins leadership. Oh when she read this, this is going to piss her off because she can not stand the sound of former Mayor Delia Perkins. Damn I am having a flashback when Mayor Everette-Oates looked a my camera at a meeting not long ago and said that she was speaking to me for the record. Well I am going to see will she make it to the April regular monthly meeting and talk to me because I have some questions for her after meeting.

PRINCEVILLE — The grey cloud that has hung over the town since the Local Government Commission took over its finances July 30, became even darker Monday after the state auditor released an investigative financial report detailing possible misuse of funds by town officials.

The finding points out that Mayor Priscilla Everette-Oates and former finance officer made questionable credit card purchases totaling more than $10,000 without providing receipts or documenting the business purpose at the time of the expenditure. (More)
