Nutting made a good case

EDITOR: In the recent article submitted by Supervisor Nutting with a rebuttal by Audit-Controller Joe Harn and District Attorney Vern Pierson, Nutting very succinctly stated his reasons for believing the charges against him are politically motivated.

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.

    LINK - What I am about to describe about Joe Harn is based on my own experience. One of my duties at the county made it necessary that I work with a woman in Joe Harn’s office on budgets… excerpt – ” . . . I am a CPA, was a Scout Master for the Boy Scouts and a previous employee of El Dorado County. I live in El Dorado County. What I am about to describe about Joe Harn is based on my own experience. One of my duties at the county made it necessary that I work with a woman in Joe Harn’s office on budgets (her name is withheld to protect a victim). While doing this work I found some strange and unusual things had happened in this budget area in the past. After working on this issue for a few weeks I suddenly could no longer get the woman to return my calls. Since I just worked across the street, I walked over to find out why she was not taking my calls. The woman told me Joe had instructed her that I could no longer talk with her. She had been told by Joe Harn that if I came to her office, she was to call him. . . . READ MORE AT - http://www.inedc.com/1-5131

    Of course Nuttin can't be responsible for all of the things he has done by his own hand, must be a huge conspiracy of employees and citizens and CalFire and even forgeries of his own signature and the fires set illegally and out of control must also have been a conspiracy of others. And if you believe him you need to buy a slightly used bridge to nowhere.

    Nutting will have his day or two in court, maybe even a week or two wasting more tax payer dollars and clogging up the court system even more. Then off to prison, so the taxpayers can continue to fund his way of life.

    Should Mr. Nutting be convicted, I doubt there will be prison time. It will be something interesting as Supervisors get interesting treatment. How about a period of house arrest and then probation?

    Justice Insider carefully keeps the prospective jury pool well informed and deserves unqualified thanks from everyone who might be called to serve. JUDGE: "Have you formed an opinion about Supervisor Nutting's guilt or innocence?" CITIZEN: "Yes, your honor, I have. Through our local newspaper the DA's office has kept the public well informed on all aspects of Supervisor Nutting's malfeasance. He should be drawn and quartered." JUDGE: "Dismissed."

    Good case NOT, Ray has been arrested and he will be tried unless he does the right thing and accepts a plea bargin and cuts his losses and removes himself form our County and his type of back door politics. That said he too will go the way of the past supervisors who commited crimes and took the trust away from the voters who elected them. Ray and the four or more past corrupt supervisors (lets not forget the past mayor of Placerville), should send us all a clear message that; Money,Power and Greed is what feeds the corruption and is the undoing of all elected officals and a clear vote for term limits. A good case for all future wanna bee elected to look at what theft can get you,an orange suit of clothes and time behind bars, not to mention public comment.
