From Roberto's post, " Boz...accuses Lorrin of missing the bail bond business for 8 years." My memory may not be what it once was, but if it serves at all, 8 years ago, former women's prison warden, Jan Peuchell, was the clerk. Am I mistaken? In any case, isn't math on the important side for a district attorney when it comes to figuring out sentences? I'm no math whiz, either, but then I'm not running for DA. Corrections welcome.
Is the Indy now withdrawing its endorsement of Zellinger and giving it to Freeman? Will Indy now publish a corrected or updated version of the sample ballot replacing his name with hers so for voters to carry to polls?
In light of all this, that would seem the appropriate thing to do, batter late than never.
Thank you for your enlightening report.
"I am the candidate who has a plan to address these issues. I am the candidate who can keep our community safe. I am the candidate who can, and will, win in November.
What is the plan? I hope it isn't the one used on those cases being appealed!
Dear Perry, on my phone I thought your post was NoTime's response. Sorry. Well, I was hoping for more specifics about the cases you and NoTime talked about. I'm guessing Cooper and Young are two of the three. Please let me know because, like many others, I personally like these people but need to make an informed and considered choice before voting, and I do not want to base it on idle gossip but actual truth from insiders. It doesn't mean I will stop liking a person, but my bottom line in the primary for DA is choosing one who will not be controlled by a corporate outsider, who will be independent and stand for the people.
Dear No Time, are you able to say more about those cases you mentioned?
Thank you, No Time, for elucidation of certain facts that an outsider to the court system would never know. Feel free to go on
Dear "No Time For Politics," please specify if possible the case to which you refer wherein "at least one was secured as a result of his dishonest tactics" on behalf of Boz? It is rather difficult for me to imagine him being underhanded. I know him as a very honest and friendly young man, and I wonder if you aren't being somewhat unfair or perhaps misinformed.
As far as Lorrin, I believe she is beyond reproach, and it is clear SEANC has a vested interest in the outcome of this race and is playing dirty pool, placing two perfectly good people in awkward situations. It's obvious they want revenge on Lorrin and that they would not want her prosecuting them for the felonies she uncovered. At this point there is nothing Boz can do that won't draw criticism from one side or other.
For Dems in Wake county following the races and who may know many of the candidates, SEANC has turned into a succubus. Had SEANC endorsed no one at all, or had they endorsed one of the very capable GOP candidates, this awkward situation would not be dividing many like friends after a divorce. I wonder if they will suddenly support the GOP primary victor in the event Lorrin wins the Dem's.
The Office of the District Attorney should be independent of special interest groups. The office should not be for sale. That office is "The People." Hopefully the last line of the story will read "in spite of all their attempts to the contrary, SEANC was not able to purchase The People."
