Governor Deal: One Ethics Complaint Tossed; Others Remain

From the AJC:

Commission staff on Feb. 24 told government watchdog George Anderson that his complaint regarding Deal’s appointment of a commission member had been dismissed. A letter from commission executive director Holly LaBerge explained the case had been dismissed because “there is no basis for proceeding with this complaint” under the  state’s ethics laws. The complaint was filed in September.

But a number of other complaints, including one Anderson filed in March 2010, have yet to be acted upon. LaBerge, in an email to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, last week said the “other complaints filed against Deal are still open cases and therefore it is not appropriate for me to comment on the status of them.”

    The other cases will be left “open” in perpetuity so that LaBerge nor anyone else will ever be able to comment on them. There will be no further investigation conducted on those cases, though.

  2. Dave Bearse says:

    It the current rate of disposition, it’ll be as clear as ancient history when the complaints are resolved.

  3. SB says:

    This is an important update to all that have knowledge of the “Gibson Case” and criminally-corrupt Judge (and former prosecutor) David P. Kreider. During recent months concerned parties who desire to see corruption stamped out and to see justice served have been the source of intense pressure upon various “insiders”. One of those key “insiders” involved in the aforementioned matter is Martha Lott who, until last Thursday (04/05/2012), served as the Chief Judge of Florida’s 8th Judicial Circuit.

    This message has been shared in order to announce that the scandal related to the “Gibson Case” has taken yet another big step towards it’s complete unraveling. Yesterday (04/09/2012) at 05:34 p.m. EST it was officially announced that Martha Lott had resigned from her post as Chief Judge on 04/05/2012. Were it not for her resignation Martha Lott’s current term as Chief Judge would have expired on 06/30/2013. To review the official resignation announcement, which ran in Alachua County’s largest newspaper (“The Gainesville Sun”), visit the following url:

    Robert E. Roundtree Jr. is now the Chief Judge of the 8th Judicial Circuit of Florida. Judge Roundtree has now inherited the problems related to criminal/judge David P. Kreider and Judge Kreider’s various co-conspirators; and it is now Judge Roundtree’s responsibility to promptly carry-out the duties passed on to him regarding resolving those problems.

    This is a testament to the positive impact that determined people can have in the fight against public corruption.

    For the record, everything stated here is 100% true and corroborated by two reports and extensive irrefutable evidence that is in the possession of various agencies. Some of those agencies are within Florida’s 8th Judicial Circuit (within the circuit, included in those entities that are in possession of the aforementioned reports and evidence are the Chief Judge’s office and the State Attorney’s Office Chief Investigator Spencer Mann).
