Dowe defended his spending in an
interview with News 7 Friday afternoon,
but after new information emerged
suggesting he sought double
reimbursements from the city and the
state for trips to Richmond, the Mayor
asked for his resignation.


Now the municipal auditor will
try to determine exactly what
happened... and his review will cover
not only dowe's spending, but the
expenses of every other council member
as well.

Depending on what he discovers,


Harmon could refer his findings to the

happens, Roanoke Commonwealth's

request a special prosecutor, because
Dowe interned in the office, both as a
high school and college student.

Dowe did not want to talk
publicly about the situation today,
Jean, but we did learn this afternoon
he has also resigned from the Board of
the Virginia Department of Criminal
Justice Services.


That is a state panel that meets
in richmond, and it was his trips to
board meetings there that have raised
the allegations of double

jjadhon@wdbj7.com A new report says sales of
exising homes fell last month to their
lowest rate since 1999.


That news did little to scare
investers on Wall Street.


The Dow rose 189 points to close at
12,570.

Last Night according to overnight ratings.


Nielsen Media Research says preliminary
ratings for the 80th annual Academy

of little known movies and fallout from
the writer's strike could be to blame
for the dismal ratings.
