Benest will probabky never have to face the music. Look at what happened to Emily Harrison--she was suspended for malfeasance which would probably get you and me fired, but the city council showered her with praise. Benest will probably get a big fat raise, a substantial bonus and then the city council will vote to sign over the deed to the house he is living in--the cost will be passed on to the taxpayers.
Then the city council will get back to important things--climate change, travelling out of town on the taxpayers dime, and congatulating each other on a job well done.
