State Ethics Commission wants a prosecutor to look into the Oxendine PACs

This story will continue to add to the Culture of Corruption narrative the Democrats are working up for this year’s election.

The head of the State Ethics Commission on Tuesday said the state should seek possible criminal charges against two insurance companies and a group of political action committees she said are stonewalling an investigation into their donations to John Oxendine’s gubernatorial campaign.

Stacey Kalberman, the commission’s executive secretary, told the board that it was “time for you to consider turning this matter over to the prosecutor.”

The recommendation was seconded by Stefan Ritter, a top official in the attorney general’s office who cited “potential criminal violations” by the insurance companies and the Alabama-based PACs in not handing over requested financial information when the commission issued subpoenas

Like the serial killer in a horror flick that comes back to life once before the end of the movie, Oxendine’s damage to the GOP is not done yet.

      BAhahahaha!! It’s beginning to resemble Blago more every day. I can’t believe they only found him guilty on 1 of the 24 charges.

    I’m not sure that ethics matter to the base GOP voter anymore. As long as they are getting their piece of the pie from government, they look the other way… It’s sad really. Regular people lose out when that kind of failed “leadership” if you can call it that prevails.

    Just a WAG Chris but I think this may be just the beginning of a real dog fight with no holds barred. Party unity and associations are untidy when investigations are on going. Win or lose, Deal, I believe, is in deep trouble, as are Oxendine and a few others. And yes, ethics are most important to some GOP voters who believe that a person with morals and ethics will act the same way whether the door is closed or open.

    I wonder how many fierce defenders of Ox there’d be in this thread if he’d won the nomination.

    I wonder what the odds are that he beats the rap in the end.

    I wonder just how many people belong in the dock with him.
