Sacked Liberia polls body spokesman on scapegoating
The sacked Liberian elections Spokesman, who was at the center of the controversy over an erroneous letter giving the opposition CDC victory in the first round, has told WADR that the NEC ex-boss James Fromoyan wants to use him as a scapegoat for his own blunder.
Bobby Livingstone, former Public Information chief at the National Elections Commission (NEC) was sacked recently, after being linked to the weird letter signed by the ex-Chairman, in which the NEC mistakenly flipped results of the first round of voting in favor of CDC.
Fromoyan had earlier accused him of deliberately inserting the document, describing him in news reports as "a paid agent".
But the elections commission boss, Fromoyan himself had to quit his post, amidst that incident and pressure from the opposition, leaving more questions than answers.
In an interview with WADR’s Frank Sainworla,, the man at the center of the fiasco Livingston denied being a paid agent to engage in mischief, instead shifting blame on his former boss.
