State attorney investigation remains ‘under review’

Yeager was re-elected.

Angier communicated after the Oct. 25 BOCC meeting that the State Attorney’s Office had reopened the case based on “new information.”

In addition to Williams and the private citizen, the only person known to have spoken with investigators is St. Joe Beach resident Tom Graney. His is the only name that appears in the letter from Hess.

Graney said he believes that he is the source of any conversation recorded by Williams.

Graney, who said he considered Williams a friend and was a close political supporter of Williams since he first ran for the District 3 BOCC seat in 2004, said he had spoken at length with Williams about the local political landscape as Williams was trying to decide to seek re-election.

“I just wanted to tell him what was out there,” Graney said.

Graney said he related some of the information he knew to be in the public forum and acknowledged to Williams that the PAC was opposing the re-election of all BOCC incumbents.
