Here’s a new wrinkle in the story of one-time Kenyan McDuffie staffer Tim Clark, fired last week after allegedly paying bar tabs with constituent service funds. According to McDuffie committee analyst Adrian Jordan, who apparently discovered the missing money, Clark tried to pay back the bar bills without anyone noticing.
In an interview Friday with the Post, Clark said he offered to pay back the $225.07 before the missing money was discovered. But that’s not the story told in Jordan’s statement to the police, available in full below.
Jordan found an unusual three charges worth $92.27 on April 29, with an additional $132.80 in charges on May 29. In that second review, Jordan also discovered a $300 check that he believed Clark donated without telling anyone, in attempt to make up for the $225.07—-plus $74.93!
In an email sent Friday to members of a Ward 5 listserv, Clark apologized for his use of the debit card and “the shame it has brought upon the Ward and the CM’s office.”
