Susan Haynie was scheduled to join the rest of Boca Raton’s City Council Members in tonight’s Council Meeting at City Hall. Instead she told members she was sick. The meeting adhered to the agenda with only Deputy Mayor Scott Singer, Council Member O’ Rourke and Council Member Mayotte as the attending elected officials. During the meeting Mr. Singer broke from the agenda to address Mayor Haynie’s absence.
The Palm Beach Post reported a story explaining the actual reason for Mayor Haynie’s absence: she was being booked with the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, charged with four felonies and three misdemeanors. See the booking details in the image at the bottom of this article.
During the meeting Frank Chapman brought up how the City Attorney had been complicit. Now that it’s gone from allegations to actual charges, he asked if it was appropriate if the Council continues without 3rd party legal review of the City Attorney, Diana Grub Freiser. Chapman alluded to her accepting some culpability for the felony charges Haynie is facing.
