This is very different from the slap on the wrist I and others predicted would be the worst outcome of the whole Mooninite fiasco. Is it because the signs were electronic? Would the same thing have happened if they had plastered the exact same spots through the city with vinyl stickers? I guess the stage AG passed the point of no return, early on, and Turner realized regardless of the merits of the situation that she wasn’t going to stop until she got her pound of flesh.
I also suppose Turner paying for the emergency response costs is better than the poor tax payers who are already apparently blighted by some of the most clueless administrators imaginable. But, really, as the billing was ticking up towards one million dollars in man hours and other costs, no one thought to pull the whistle stop over a freaking lite brite?!
