So the BOS has set a second special meeting for tomorrow to discuss last week’s dismissal of the county’s case in the Colonies settlement. Our BOS members have been so jacked around by county attorneys and the CAO/CEO and they are too stupid to see it. Or are they? After all, it is not their tens of millions of dollars they are wasting for political advantage.
I have to admit I found last week’s dismissal to be humorous, to say the least. County officials pushed, humiliated and bankrupted Bill into a plea deal and settlement so they could say, “Hey, re-elect me. Look at what I’ve done to clean up corruption.” Boy has that come back to bite them in the butt.
And, of course, county officials did it with the help of their crack legal team and wise CAO/CEO. Now, seriously, if a county official says he accepted a bribe, wouldn’t a first year law student understand the consequences? Of course they knew what would happen. But they advised BOS members to continue to push anyway. And push they did. And support DA Ramos in his push they also did. Just check out Josie’s actions, for one.
Why? Follow the money. The more litigation, the more money for the law firms the county contracts with to hire these first rate quacks . . . er . . . lawyers. Can’t you just guess what the Legal Beagle on Ice will tell BOS members in closed session? “We will win this. We will. We will. Just give us more money. We will win. We will. We will. Just more money . . . more money . . . more money.” Kinda like they did with the Colonies settlement. That worked out really well, huh?
But then again, I guess we, the taxpayers, are the real fools. We keep voting them back into office to screw us over and over again.This entry was posted in Government Corruption and tagged Gary Ovitt, James Ramos, Janice Rutherford, Josie Gonzales, Robert Lovingood by Administrator
