The reasons he stated regarding Harn are very serious and Mr. Harn said nothing in his defense other than how he had always supported Nutting in his campaigns. We, the citizens of El Dorado County, deserve the facts regarding Harn and his office. I would think he would be anxious, in his defense, to explain the statements as quickly as possible. Are they true or not? Not addressing them will not make them go away.
He and D.A. Pierson both just stated why they are unpopular with some citizens. Supervisor Nutting made a good case and deserves his day in court before any decision is made as to his innocence or guilt.
