“If you all need a scapegoat if you all need somebody responsible, I accept responsibility for this missing money so call the governor’s office on me because the buck is stopping here. We’re the commissioners. I’m accepting responsibility for the missing money. Gene [Margate City Attorney, Eugene Steinfeld] you and the city go ahead and get the money back through all the channels that you can, but as far as who is responsible I’m accepting the responsibility,”
