DeAnna Minus-Job

Embattled Assistant Commissioner of Community Affairs DeAnna Minus-Vincent is out of a job when Jon Corzine takes office in January, Democratic sources confirmed. Minus-Vincent is in hot water for taking free tickets to Sesame Street Live at the Continental Arena earmarked for needy children for her daughter and members of her family. Minus-Vincent apparently used four special backstage passes. Codes of ethical standards used by the state prohibit the acceptance of gifts from firms or organizations their department does business with. Last year, Minus-Vincent got in trouble for approving a $10,000 grant for her father’s organization and for $55,000 in grants to her sister’s organization. The stories on Minus-Vincent’s problems was broken by Gannett’s Sandy McClure.
