Judge denies motion to dismiss PAC lawsuit

Published: Thursday, July 11, 2013 at 10:11 AM.

When the Gulf County Supervisor of Elections moved ahead to remove Garth from the voters rolls, the SAO failed to provide evidence of a crime and suggested the removal of Garth from the voting rolls should not progress.

The result, the lawsuit alleges, was “retaliatory humiliation” for Garth and the PAC.

“There is some irony in this (federal judge’s) decision coming forth as we just celebrated Independence Day which represents our freedoms that we feel were violated,” Garth said in a statement. “I am personally anxious to have these people under oath as soon as possible. In these days of government bullying, who wouldn’t want to have their elected official under oath?

“Lying under oath in a federal stetting is a serious crime so the incentive to be truthful is stronger and usually leads to the truth discovering everyone involved.”
