Supervisor of Elections:
It is with regret that I must inform you, friends, and political supporters of my decision to withdraw from the 2022 Mayoral Race. Family medical issues, which I had prayed would resolve by years end will not.
Those with political experience know that campaigns are high energy and intensive affairs, where candidates and their families must be solely committed to the effort. It is not fair to a candidates supporters, and the process itself, to continue knowing you cannot remain fully engaged.
We of course will be refunding all campaign contributions. Any expenditures to date will be paid by me.
Susan and I thank all of you for your encouragement and support. You will all be forever in our hearts.
I am doing a post about the campaign donations later. I would like to address the “medical reasons” listed and the speculation that has been brought to me the last couple of days.
Most people are not aware of medical issues Morgan faced in his last 2 years or so of his tenure. He was frequently not at the ECSO; he traveled extensively, including trips out of the country. Personnel in the office claimed he was looking rough, losing weight. It was easily recognizable that he was ill. These trips, throughout the country and internationally, left personnel speculating that he was seemingly hiding his treatment for some reason. It was the Sheriff’s health that was, in question. I say that because there were many people who were told Susan Morgan had cancer right around the time he was elected. People were told Susan had stage 4 cancer. Anything over a year was a blessing. As a child of someone who was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer, I know what that means. To say Morgan misrepresented her condition is a vast understatement. If you are stage 4 cancer patient, the prognosis of survival of more than 5 years is nearly nil. It has been 12 years since this was asserted. Susan has been very social and vibrant. Morgan’s claim that she had stage 4 cancer 12-13 years ago, makes it appear as though this was an untrue claim, at least, in part, if not, in full.
Just because I question this doesn’t mean every person is not afforded the right to their health privacy, including either of the Morgans. But I did not put health into the ether as an issue relating to either of them. I would have not mentioned any of these health issues had he not cited medical issues for his decision to bow out of the race.
Medical reasons were given with Marcille when he bowed out from the State attorney election. It has not been an issue that anyone can see, giving way to the idea it was less about medical reasons and more about not being able to win against Ginger Bowden-Madden. So this standard dictum could be an excuse that no one could question. Having said that, it has been brought to my attention that someone affiliated with the agency recently passed away. This person’s death has been very ambiguously described. I have been told it had nothing to do with Covid. It was “autoimmune” related somehow and any other specifics are being hushed. This person was named in the Leah Manning Sex Ring case, as was Morgan. Now I absolutely understand the right to medical privacy. There is no intent to slander anyone or to assume a conclusion that was not already speculated by many, but this does raise obvious questions.
Is his withdrawl from the race now sheer coincidence? Maybe. Maybe Morgan bowed out because the Billings case is quickly turning into his worst nightmare. It’s possible questions and concerns I shared about the Citizen P.I. with the show runner in London created concern. I contacted Steve McLaughlin and shared my concerned about the hacked email between a journalist and Patrick Gonzalez Jr., published by Outzen. He was not privy to see, much less publish. He even mentions; he couldn’t be sure it was from Patrick, but he was willing publish it. That is unethical at the least, criminal at the worst. I also mentioned Patrick was not represented by counsel who was fully working on his behalf when the production company reached out.
Then, of course, there is the FBI corruption investigation in Santa Rosa County. Scott Haines, Eric Haines’s brother, had several hard drives seized that opened “Pandora’s Box”. Morgan is one degree of separation from that, very possibly zero degrees. All of these things may have proved to be just too much shit to overcome for Ye Olde Sheriff. Maybe his health is really to blame. I doubt it is his wife’s health. because I have my reservations about her being that ill at all.
This post is merely me putting forward things that come to my attention that has not otherwise been discussed publicly. Draw your own conclusions. I am just relieved Morgan’s mayoral run is over. It was laughable to even entertain, but I know the “powers that be” don’t need it to make sense. They just need to get a person in they can control. Well I must admit, Morgan has been a good tool for the GOB.
