Nutting legal defense fund seeking donations

From page A1 | July 31, 2013 |

A fund has been created to help a county supervisor pay his legal expenses.

Supporters of Ray Nutting, who faces a Grand Jury indictment alleging crimes related to filing false documents,  failure to disclose income and having a financial interest in a county contract and a second indictment from the District Attorney alleging that he illegally obtained bail money, have created the Supervisor Ray Nutting Legal Defense Fund, a press release prepared by Dan Dellinger announced.

Fundraisers are also being planned to allow the community to “show support for the popular supervisor and express their outrage with the clique of elected officials pursuing their political vendetta against Nutting and other political proponents.”

Longtime Cameron Park resident Bill Bellas was quoted as calling Nutting “a good and honest person who is always helping ordinary people like us.” He said it was the community’s turn to help Nutting, who “doesn’t deserve to be treated this way.”

Richard and Karen Smith of Garden Valley questioned “wasting over $100,000 of county money” by the DA and county auditor prosecuting Nutting after the Fair Political Practices Commission stated that they saw no wrongdoing on the conflict of interest charges. “It is no more than the good old boys’ attempt to humiliate and unseat Supervisor Nutting.”

In the press release, Shingle Springs resident Frank Stephens called the matter a “political vendetta” and that “everyone knows the district attorney and county auditor were not happy when Supervisor Nutting, an independent thinker, refused to endorse their hand-picked candidate for sheriff. It is unfortunate they are still at odds with Ray for helping elect our current sheriff.”

Donations received by the committee will be used to help with attorney costs and related fees for Nutting. The fund has been formed with the FPPC. Donations can be sent to Supervisor Ray Nutting Legal Defense Fund c/o Dale Small, 550 Main St., Suite 2E, Diamond Springs 95619, FPPC # 1358803. Small can be reached at 530-295-1033.
