Once again, Sheriff Phil Plummer is claiming ignorance in the case of the appraisal gold mine for friends. This time- Sgt. Tom Flanders is taking the heat- for supposedly asking to have the appraisal documents shredded.
Phil is good at pointing fingers:
“There’s no cover-up here. It was a mistake by a new sergeant in that office,” said Plummer, a Republican, “If I’d known about this it wouldn’t have happened because it shouldn’t have happened.”
To add insult to injury- the Dayton Daily News has closed comments on this article- probably because they’re afraid that people within the Sheriff’s own office will leave comments that nail him to the wall.
It’s time to quit this charade. Not only should Plummer be investigated, so should Vore- for how the amount got raised- and how he hired Plummer’s sister in the first place. Then we should also look at the Clerks of Courts who’ve blindly paid the invoices without asking questions until it’s election time: So Greg Brush should shut up- and Dan Foley (prior clerk) should be doing some time in the hot seat.
While hard working people in Montgomery have been getting screwed by watching their housing values drop thanks to these fly-by-night appraisals by uncertified friends and family- these people have been making serious money.
They all belong in jail.
