The girlfriend of former State Senator and convicted felon John Ford is working for the city.
Connie Mathews, who has two children by Ford, is an assistant library cataloger at the Memphis Public Library and Information Center. Mathews, who began her job Nov. 10, works at the Central Library on Poplar and has an annual salary of $28,580.
Mathews, who has a background in banking and finance, is known locally for her run-ins with Fords ex-wife, Tamara Mitchell Ford. In 2001, Mitchell-Ford drove her silver Jaguar into the Collierville home Mathews shared with Ford.
Ford was the marquee defendant in the FBI's wide-reaching Tennessee Waltz undercover public corruption sting and was convicted last April of taking $55,000 in bribes as a legislator. He was sentenced to 5 1/2 years in prison. Ford also got a 14-year sentence for illegally pocketing $854,000 from two TennCare contractors while overseeing TennCare business in the legislature.

Willie is prolly using his willie. They don't call him Willie “Hump” Herrington for nothing. Just about every school principal in Shelby County at one time was pregnant by Willie and appointed by Willie.
It would be nice, if anyone can name a Black DEMOCRAT Mayor, Governor or Congress Critter of the past decade who hasn't been accused, investigated, charged or convicted of immoral, unethical, corrupt or financial shenanigans?
Damn if it doesn't seem to be a pattern....
It it a Democrat genetic default or "tribal tradition'...

Disrespecting elected office, even when that office is your own, seems to be a basic tenet of Black “Liberation” Theology.
