Air America: Missing Payrolls?
Captain's Quarters ^ | August 08, 2005

Posted on 08/13/2005 6:15:06 PM PDT by george76

Brian Maloney, who broke the Air America scandal in the blogosphere over a week ago while the Exempt Media still mostly ignores it, now hears whispers from inside the netlet that employees worry about the company missing its payroll obligations. A delay in posting direct-deposit pay for their final July paychecks apparently has Air America employees buzzing, although anonymously:

It's bad enough the company is generating fresh bad publicity almost daily, over the diverted $875,000 in taxpayer funds intended for a Bronx-based community service organization.

Now, to make matters worse, an internal memo obtained by the Radio Equalizer indicates Air America Radio employees faced late paychecks just over a week ago.

They were apparently stunned to receive a last-minute notice sent at 5:09pm Thursday, July 28th, indicating direct deposits would not be made Friday, as expected.

Written by company Vice President/Finance Sinohe Terrero (this article confims Terrero's corporate role), it inferred the payroll processing company was to blame:

We have been advised by ADP that Direct Deposit will probably not post until Monday. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cost (sic). If you have any questions please feel free to call me.

From each according to their ability (and all that).

Anything other than that standard would be hypocritical.

"Isn't ADP owned by Frank Lautenberg? Surely he wouldn't let Air America employees encounter such troubled waters?"

Amazing how they blame a company in which it's job is to perform such functions (and has, successfully, for a long time).

If I was Lautenberg (or whoever owns ADP) I would be fuming mad that my company was slandered like this.

They were informed of this by ADP because either the payroll wasn't completed on time or there weren't funds in the account to cover it.

Using what little public info there is about Hairball America's finances, some are estimating they are losing a half-million a week, and will be completely broke in about 5 weeks unless they get new investment.

And I'd be surprised if investors were lining up to just on this sinking ship during the the Gloria Wise scandal.

Anyway, thems happy thoughts... we will see.

The notice was given at 5:09 p.m. Thursday. Since they would have had one more day of that week to clear up any problems, it looks like your second reason is the most likely of the two.

The finance dept. was informed by the legal dept. that stealing from a children's charity was illegal and a felony.

This threw a monkey wrench in all their carefully prepared financial plans.

It is truly exciting to watch as this "new media" emerges from the ashes of the credibility of the old MSM. Just plain old exciting...

For the money to be transferred to the appropriate accounts, the payrool would have to have been completed by Wed eve at the latest.

I hope someone is checking if they Air Amerika paid their FICA and withholding to the US Treasury.

I worked for a company that was in trouble and they simply didn't make those payments understanding that it would take the government months to catch it.

Not paying those taxes is a felony.
