BRADENTON, Fla. — Miami’s former budget director, Michael Boudreaux, on Monday filed a whistleblower lawsuit claiming he was fired for “telling the truth and reporting about malfeasance” by former and current city hall officials.

Boudreaux was fired March 8 after a city auditor late last year questioned some interfund transfers to balance the budget, some of which had occurred over several years. Boudreaux said no transfers were made without first being approved by his bosses and city commissioners.
