So far this has not been refutted. This was received by Jilliestake, and was also received by the media.

Subject: We will be unable to release paychecks this Friday. Some tuition money is out and the Fox 5 story has definitely hurt our projected enrollment. I know that this delay in paychecks has a definite impact on every staff member. I truly regret the pain and inconvenience that it will cause. We will try to get everyone paid as soon as possible. I ask each of you to be professional and not discuss this on campus. We do not need students hearing this and acting out. The financial concerns of RC are based on enrollment. A few disgruntled ex-ployees are creating a perfect storm that is fueling a negative PR disaster. Please be professional. On a positive note we are in the process of working through a refinancing package that will greatly alleviate financial concerns. Again I truly regret that paychecks will be delayed."
On a lighter note:
Luckily, it's the weekend; the ORCC, DFCS, and CPS Administrators will unleash their tied hands to dig into barbecue. Perhaps they are meetin' up with former South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford on the Apppalachian Trail. Reports are comin' in that although Sanford has not been sighted, a "mobile lab" has turned over on the trail, and unleashed "The Chapel Fund." Hikers report scavengers are feastin' on the 'funds', singin, "Goin' to the Chapel."
On a heavier note:
It has been advised that those who walked away should call their local FBI office and sing a different tune.
To quote an "angel of mercy" who offered in context another quote, Jilliestake quotes: "For those that justify they did what they could and thought they were helping I am drawn to another quote, "the road to Hell is paved with good intentions."
This author shall look forward to seeing you all in court, sans "The Chicken Judge."
And that's my take.
