Case closed?

Finally, public money was expended in initially recommending the removal of a voter from the voter rolls and then when the rubber hit the road and evidence had to be provided, recommending stopping the process.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement and the State Attorney’s Office are so rolling in public money they have sufficient resources to devote to this, what could be fairly described as an investigation into critics of Gulf County government?

This merits those resources over, say, the murder of Mary Thomas which remains unsolved more than six years after she was found brutally murdered in woods off Avenue A?

Now, if Commissioner Tan Smiley wants to grind an axe about investment in the white and minority communities, as he did at the end of the last Board of County Commissioners meeting, there is some genuine fuel.

So the real question I have, given my extensive background of viewing Law and Order, is how exactly did this investigation and devotion of public resources (read: other people’s money) serve the public?

From what is known, Jack McCoy’s eyebrows would be knitting a sweater by now.
