Thurbert Baker is going to issue a bunch of subpoenas and start a messy investigation of John Oxendine. His office already has the investigation started.
It seems there are a few insurance executives who are whispering in the background about gifts in exchange for rate increases among other things. At least two Insurance Commission workers have admitted to people outside the office that Oxendine ordered them to shred documents pertaining to messy issues. Then there is that phone call of a rather personal nature to make things even more salacious.
Baker intends to destroy Oxendine.
There’s a catch though — Baker won’t start up the investigation until the general election. I’ve had a few interesting conversations with people in the past two days about all of this. It is as you would expect. Baker is hoping to time this all to help the Democrats, and presumably himself should he be the nominee.
Don’t look for the media to do anything about this until the general election. They want Ox as the nominee too. In fact, one AJC reporter has lots already on this and is just sitting on this. But he isn’t the only one.
