Closure to move ahead

At least that is the presumptive basis of the investigation since right now all we have is the words of three people involved.

One, the primary “witness” in the investigation, has called the investigation “silliness” and a “Keystone Kops” comedy routine.

And in fact the State Attorney closed the case on Oct. 16 with a letter saying that what seemed to be involved was dirty politics or a crime, and intelligent people would disagree.

Bluntly, you could almost make the same assertion about many of the commercials that bombarded the airwaves leading up to the election – dirty politics or a crime, you decide?

The fact that the case was closed with no finding of charges, however, speaks volumes because it is hard to see what “new information” could have been gleaned from the ugly Board of County Commissioners’ meeting of Oct. 25.

To reopen the case, preventing public disclosure of the file is significant in a county desperately needs closure on this election.

What was the probable cause that launched this investigation?
