Olympic chief payoff slammed

The Olympic Development Authority came under fire after it emerged that ex chairman Jack Lemley received a pay off of £388,000 of tax payers' money.
The Liberal Democrats questioned why such a large sum of tax payers' money was paid to a man who it had been reported had resigned from the post after just 10 months in the job.'This is an absolute scandal and disgraceful waste of taxpayers money,' said Liberal Democrats Olympic Spokesman Dee Doocey. 'We were told by the ODA in October last year that Jack Lemley resigned his post of chairman to return to America and pursue his business interests. 'Yet today we learned he was paid off with a handsome package of almost £400,000. This raises serious questions as to whether Mr Lemley was jumped or if he was pushed.'
