Patton is credited with single-handedly destroying the Cincinnati Black United Front after Rev. Damon Lynch III turned leadership of the group over to him and Iris Roley (known on this blog as Nurse Rivers).
After he ran all the members away, Patton began to publicly attack Rev. Lynch and CBUF's Chief of Staff, Juleana Frierson, accusing them of stealing money.
For the last few weeks, Patton has been telling a story on WDBZ/The Buzz -- Cincinnati's Black talk radio station -- that we at The Cincinnati Black Blog believe deserves addressing. Patton says he was chosen to hand-deliver a $700,000.00 check to lawyers hired to represent CBUF for work done on what is now known as Collaborative I. The problem is, according to numerous news reports at the time (and court records) the lawyers only received $600,000.00. (For example, see this and this.)
If Patton is telling the truth, from the time he was trusted to deliver funds to CBUF lawyers to the time he arrived, ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS ($100,000.00) DISAPPEARED.
Judge Susan Dlott appointed CBUF to represent all Black people in the city. On behalf of Black people, The Cincinnati Black Blog wants to know WHAT HAPPENED TO THE $100K?
