Nutting legal defense fund seeking donations

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.

    Another great idea, have people who have been duped and fooled support his delay of his own trial, very brilliant. Maybe they should all just pay him a monthly salary also so the taxpayers can opt out of this circus act. This is an invented and created "News Release" containing nothing that is new or news. It was already well known that they wanted others to pay his legal bills for months. The money sent should be re-routed to the the taxpayers of the county for a huge refund for years of malfeasance.

    Is Bullion a preferred method of payment for donations?

    Soliciting funds to pay your legal bills Ray is typical of your behavior. Have you ever paid your way for anything? Its time to get off the social welfare and start acting like the conservative you claim to be.

    No bullion. Cattle OK. Bulls only. Or the other 1/2 of the proposition money he didn't already get.

    Not many people get to advertise in the local paper for their legal defense fund.

    Cookie, here's whats going to be fun to watch in the coming months. Rays campaign, publicist, or what ever he calls himself this week, Dan Dellinger distributed a press release soliciting funds for a political reason. Even went as far as to identify the FPPC #, where to mail the funds etc. Now all the "donors" have to be identified, and the funds have to be accounted for as a benefit from this type of advertising. Printing this carefully worded "press release" soliciting funds now makes the Mt. Democrat a contributor and the dollar values have to be accounted and reported. Soon everyone will see who is drinking the Kool Aid Ray is serving.

    Isn't Dan Dillinger the political laughing stock of the county.

    Wow, the gall. Let’s review. Starts annual illegal fires in one of the most remote locations in the County that taxpayers got to pay for extinguishing (wasn’t he connected to a fire fee increase out there?). Paid $$$$ to have prevented such an event to happen, by the taxpayers. His tax accountant/family trust trustee is doing time for tax fraud. Shakes down his own staff and a respected county contractor for bail money (by the way who tipped Ray off he was going to be arrested?). Says repeatedly he wants a quick trial to clear his name but has already stalled his own trial at least twice. Just exposed information that he tried to file for a variance on section 8 housing assistance for a rental property he owns USING HIS COUNTY OFFICE LETTERHEAD (no conflict of interest here). And now he gets to cry to the public through the Mt Democrat and Chris Alarcon for money. Dear BOS get this idiot out of the workings of the County until this gets sorted out.
