SRSO Scandal: Part 5-Sheriff Bob Johnson

**Addition to Part 4- Eric Haines. There are sources that confirm Eric & Scott (and all the families, including mom and dad with Eric’s daughter as well) were on a cruise the first week of March 2020. The cruise left out of New Orleans, with the ports of call included Cozumel, Mexico, Roatan, Bay Islands, Harvest Key, Belize & Costa Maya, Mexico.

Getting to Sheriff Bob Johnson, although he only enters the story a bit later, his involvement is imperative for Scott to fleece Ms. Dot. Unequivocally, without the consent of Sheriff Bob, there would be no way Scott would have been able to do as much as he has. If there was an unbiased Sheriff elected in 2016, we would not be here today. Sheriff Bob could and should have disciplined Scott for all his indiscretions. By not doing that Bob has violated the public’s trust. According to the DOJ,

Public corruption is a breach of the public’s trust by government officials who use their public office to obtain personal gain.  It is a violation of federal law for any federal, state, or local government official to ask for or receive anything of value in exchange for, or because of, any official act.  Under federal law, any person who offers or pays a bribe is also guilty. 

It is not readily clear as to what Scott gave to Sheriff Bob in return for his crimes to continue. Although I have to say his financials sure beg a lot of questions. Most of the time Bob has been in office he has a fairly steady net worth, roughly around $405K .

Most all the years look similar, except the 2021 disclosure of assets from Jan. 1, 2020 – Dec. 31, 2020.

To me, this is unexplainable, considering his income and source of income don’t reflect how the hell that kind of jump could be legitimate.

Clearly, Sheriff Bob is prospering somehow. It seems his business is corruption, and business is booming.

The red flags Sheriff Bob ignored:

  • The 2020 stalking of Marivel Meister which is not documented in by the SRSO despite the fact ECSO did contact them.
  • Open, blatant sexual harassment (dildo panties)
  • Pattern of behavior in abusing law enforcement resources for personal gain
  • Perjury –Scott lied about everything.
  • Abuse of power, also a pattern of behavior
  • Documented interference in Ms. Dot’s affairs

I’m sure there are more but these incidences should have resulted in termination. The question is why? Why would Sheriff Bob taint his legacy/career?

SRSO Scandal: Part 4-Eric Haines

There has been speculation that Eric has been a part of Scott’s circle of cadres, but both of them claimed to have nothing to do with the other. I have suspected it was a smoke screen but without proof, it was just a theory. 

Well now there is definitive proof. I requested a Master Name Index Lookup on Scott in Escambia County. This is what I found:

So what this shows is that Eric Adam Haines was actively looking at his brother’s info in real time during the 10/28/20 stalking of Marivel Meister. He had no legitimate reason for using his resources. This shows a violation of policy and possibly, a violation of law, to check up on his brother. That establishes a connection to include Eric in this conspiracy.

What is intriguing to me is that Matt was falsely arrested in Dec. 2015 for exploitation of the elderly. During this same approximate time in Escambia, that same allegation was being leveraged by Eric on Philip Nix. Ultimately resulting in Phil being terminated. The irony of this is when Matt first contacted me about his grandmother and Scott, I immediately conferenced in Phil Nix to listen to Matt’s story. Phil ended up getting Marie Mattox to represent Matt. Now this all happened after this dual accusation, but it seems to be a pattern of behavior, similarity in thinking. Although in Phil’s case, APS was never contacted by the ECSO, which should have been done. Matt had APS investigating already in his case and had a determination of no wrong doing. But it was only a half-hearted attempt on Eric’s part as he didn’t follow his own accusation. It would have been fruitless but the effort should have been made to seriously think anyone would believe his concern. Also, FDLE found no cause for termination in Phil’s case, just as APS and, in time, the Santa Rosa court system in Matt’s case. Just an observation.

Next installment will address the “Facilitators”, beginning with Sheriff Bob Johnson
