Description

The Commercial Appeal investigated the suspensions of Tom Jones, senior advisor to County Mayor Jim Rout and Rout's two predecessors. Findings revealed that Jones owed upwards of $35,000 for unauthorized, personal charges on his county-issued credit card--and the mayor had also used his county-issued credit card for personal items.
