    Default Judge rejects hoffa corruption whitewash

    A Hoffa-appointed panel cleared Willie Smith of any wrongdoing after he was charged with racketeering and taking an illegal employer gift. But Judge Barbara Jones has overruled the Hoffa whitewash.

    Hoffa’s Executive Assistant Willie Smith was charged with multiple corruption violations, including racketeering, for accepting six tickets to an exclusive Playboy Super Bowl Party from a major Teamster employer, Southern Wine & Spirits.

    But a three-person panel appointed by Hoffa whitewashed the charges and cleared Smith of any wrongdoing. The panel found that Hoffa’s aide didn’t have fun at the party, and didn’t know that the tickets had any value.

    The June 23 ruling from Judge Barbara S. Jones, the Independent Review Officer (IRO) for the IBT consent order, exposed and rejected the Hoffa panel findings.

    It's okay because he didn't have fun at the party. In the words of William Jefferson Clinton. “When I was in England, I experimented with marijuana a time or two, and didn’t like it, I didn’t inhale, and I didn’t try it again.”
