IT’S THE JR’S I TELL YA…..NEPOTISM…..CRONYISM….
This tells a lot about the situation:
Florida Governor Rick Scott has appointed another nepotistic crony to fill the District 5 Bay County Commission Seat vacated by Mike Thomas who is now the new Panama City Beach, Florida Mayor.
Scott appointed Phillip “Griff” Griffitts, Jr. who is a candidate against Brian Rust for the August Primary Election and this may prove to be the kind of push Rust needs in his Campaign following his surgery and full recovery. Rust says he didn’t submit his request to be considered due to his opinion that it was a contrary conflict in the upcoming voting process. I agree.
This action by Scott is right up there with his arrest of Liberty County Sheriff Nick Finch and his appointment of Carl Bertram Causey, Jr and Walter Lee “Buddy” Money, Jr. AND SHERIFF NICK FINCH LATER PREVAILED IN COURT….
I wonder why someone that boasts of years with the Tourist Development Council would fail for years to pay a TOURIST DEVELOPMENT TAX LIEN?????
Word has it he also didn’t pay his water bill on the Hotel and was also behind on the franchise fees for the Queensberry, but I cannot verify that…..
The Griffitts have deep ties to the White Western Men’s Club. Was this decision by Rick Scott made on a third Thursday Night of the month feed there????
Whatever the White Western Men’s Club decides each third Thursday night…..HAPPENS FRIDAY MORNING!!
White Western Men’s Club has long been involved in the choosing of winners and losers in BUSINESS, BANKING, POLITICS, TAX FRAUD AND ALL THE OTHER RACKETS!
I met corrupt IRS Agent Russell Raymond Ervin there just before I got PANAMAED with Racketeers Rev. J. W. Hunt and Harry Sanders, et.al. and IRS Agent Ervin was found dead (sheepdipped?) just days after being served by US Marshals as defendant in qui.tam. RICO Case. His son Kevin Ervin is now Panama City Police Chief.
