Over the last couple of weeks, despite the Escambia Citizens Watch rhetoric & short video rants by Sir David, employees (EMPLOYED by ECSO) claim that Chief Deputy Nonsense (Haines) has been heard telling people the “fix” is in. Differing sources have heard Haines touting that they have the necessary 3 votes to approve the budget for the ECSO. This has been since the BOCC voted down the millage increase.
I spoke to Commissioner Jeff Bergosh regarding this. His quote was this:
“We are working to solve the budget issue, and there is not any certain deal or fix of which I am aware that has been reached. We will solve this issue the night of the budget meeting, September 12th or at some point before that at a PUBLIC meeting. I have attempted to meet face to face with Sheriff Morgan and have requested a face to face meeting about the budget four times in writing and I have been told no or the request has been ignored”
BOTTOM LINE: Chief Deputy Nonsense (Haines) is either a blatant liar or he is admitting to corruption that he is personally a party to. The BOCC may want to address this with Chief Deputy Nonsense because the history of corruption in Escambia County may persuade the powers that be to sacrifice this someone over this prior to a scandal. Chief Deputy Nonsense willingly walked up to the alter dragging the county commission with him. While I would say that no better man deserves such an end, I would rather see Sir David walking into a 10×6 cell, but hey, this could be just a start.
Can’t wait to see what happens now.
