Is Vernon defending Kermit over the bogus ethics investigation because he feels Kermit was wronged? Or is afraid it may be his hide next? Makes you wonder if the ethics committee was trying to dig up dirt on Vernon to?

Staggers is concerned that the investigation went beyond the scope of the original complaint. Something that also concerns city councilman Vernon Brown.

“Probably, the most disturbing part for us is the complaint was filed but the investigation went beyond what the complaint was,” Brown said.

And let’s hear the bullshit response . . .

Mike McKnight, the chair of the Board of Ethics, says local laws give them the ability to go where the evidence takes them, and if any changes were made to that part of the law, it would limit their work.

LMAO! You mean the same ‘unconstitutional’ laws that tell people when they are in violation of city code? A city can’t just make up laws that are in violation of the US Constitution and the State Constitution and then use those bogus laws to assert power. Kermit nails it with this comment;

“In making it public then they’re going to be held accountable. When you have a situation where things are done in secret, accountability goes by the wayside,” Staggers said.

    Brown and other councilors should be concerned. An unfounded complaint can be brought. It’s hard enough paid 17K/year with no power.

    If your professional reputation can be damaged, it’ll be hard to fill these positions. After this, I’d not be surprised if there was a resignation or two.

    City administratrion has become a witch hunt favoring outside interests and an unconstitutional environment.

    I think that is what bothers Kermit so much. He has such a great reputation as a professor and politician that he was pretty offended by this witch hunt. I hope he makes the Huether campaign connection on the complaints, that will be huge.

    Not really… At this point it really doesn’t matter. Even Vernon knows that which is why it is all too little to late.

    True. It won’t change the outcome of the election, but it sure as fuck won’t build bridges between the council and the mayor’s office.
