Black Mayor’s Conference Head Owes Grand Hustle Execs $126K

Vanessa Williams lawsuit

Vanessa Williams, executive director of the National Conference of Black Mayors, owes over $126,000 in defaulted loans and attorney’s fees to 2 top executives of rapper T.I.’s Grand Hustle Records.

Court records obtained by FOX 5 senior I-Team reporter Dale Russell shows that the National Conference of Black Mayors leaves a trail of unpaid bills around the country. The black mayor’s group, with over 580 mayors, owes almost $1 million in unpaid bills, liens and court judgments against them.

The annual mayor’s conference will be held in Atlanta next week, but as Dale Russell has learned, the head of the convention is leaving a trail of unpaid loans, liens and judgments herself.

Vanessa Williams lawsuit

Grand Hustle CEO Jason Geter and Grand Hustle General Manager Hannah Kang thought they were helping out a friend when Vanessa Williams came to them seeking a loan to fill a short term gap in the Conference budget.

Williams, a smooth talker, played on Geter and Kang’s strong religious faith. Geter and Kang advanced Williams a loan of $90,000. She promised to pay the money back in a timely manner.

But Geter and Kang never got their money back. In fact, Williams issued them 2 checks that bounced.

It took years and the legwork of private investigators to haul Williams and the National Conference of Black Mayors into court. Geter and Kang won a judgment of $126,125.50 against the organization.

But Williams protected her assets by transferring property into the names of her husband and family members.

When Dale Russell caught up to Williams, she blamed all of the conference’s problems on “embezzlement” by a former insider.

She claimed she was paying people back and she promised to provide documents to support her claims. But on the day she was scheduled to meet with Russell, she cancelled the meeting without explanation.

“They felt a little bit betrayed… by someone who holds them self out to be a pillar of the community,” said Michael Miller, the attorney representing Geter.

“There has never been any intent to pay my clients back,” said Miller.

The Grand Hustle executives were forced to start the legal process all over again when their previous attorney, Charles Mathis, died of a heart attack in 2011.

      LONDON — The slaying of a British soldier in southeast London cast a spotlight on radical preachers that influenced Michael Adebolajo, the attacker seen in videos with bloody hands holding a butcher knife. It also raised questions about the reach of the terrorist group al-Shabab, after a British government official said one of the two men tried to go to Somalia to train or fight with the group. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak about the police investigation.

      Visit the Maldive Islands Before It’s Too Late

      The Republic of the Maldives is a popular destination for beach-loving travelers, but if you haven’t yet visited the cluster of islands, time may be running out. The vacation spot could find itself under water before long.

      According to NPR, climate change and rising sea levels could cause the country to sink below sea level. The 1,190 islands have an average ground level of 1.5 meters, and are spread over 35,000 square miles of the Indian Ocean off the western coast of Sri Lanka.

      “Over half of our islands are eroding at an alarming rate,” President Maumoon Abdul Gayoom
      said at the U.N.’s 2007 climate change meeting. “In some cases, island communities have had to be relocated to safer islands. Without immediate action, the long-term habitation of our tiny islands is in serious doubt.”

      However, Professor Paul Kench of the University of Auckland in New Zealand doesn’t agree. In a 2009 L.A. Times article, the coastal geomorphologist said, “The outlook for the Maldives is not all doom and gloom. The islands won’t be the same, but they will still be there.”

      In his published report conducted with other scientists from Australia, New Zealand and the Maldives, Kench claims that the islands can adjust to the environmental changes, and ultimately change shape and build vertically.
