Show Me The Money

The Iowa City Press-Citizen has an editorial regarding a Coralville City Council member's concern over the lack of details from the PorkForest con artists. Unfortunately, the staff editorial doesn't hold anybody's feet to the fire:
That city councilors put off requiring a timeline -- which Councilman Tom Gill requested four months ago -- certainly was understandable. While giving project leaders more time to search for sponsors and dollars, councilors needed to focus on the next step of their city rejuvenation project, the Marriott Hotel and Conference Center.
Oman's been saying the same lines for 5 1/2 years. How much longer is the media going to continue to be wimps about these liars and scammers?
