Abramson Wasted More Than Originally Thought

June 27th, 2011 · Comments Off

Jerry Abramson didn’t spend $180,000 out of his fancy discretionary fund. Turns out he spent some $214,000. And you know what? Receipts for what the money was spent on are essentially non-existent. So no wonder Matt Erwin at the KDP lost his shiz last week. [C-J/AKN] Activists are calling for stronger enforcement of the Clean [...]
