Merry Chri$tma$, “Dough”honey

A fly on the wall during a closed door session reports it like this. Now I must admit I do not speak “fly” with any fluency so this is a loose translation. Here is what was reported.

There is a form of corruption in City Government that is insidious and is undermining the Civil Service process.
