Omaha Mayor Jim Suttle’s lawyer called him the “Music Man.” And no, it wasn’t a compliment.
His real name is Paul Jacob, the man who came to Omaha from Virginia to spearhead the paid petition portion of the drive to recall the Mayor.
Jacob is a nationally known conservative activist and the President of Citizens in Charge.
But according to Vince Powers, Suttle’s lawyer in the recall case, Jacob ran an illegal “pay per signature” operation for the Mayor Suttle Recall Committee.
Following his stop on the witness stand during the recall trial at the Douglas County Courthouse this week, Jacob spoke with Nebraska Watchdog’s Joe Jordan.
