Morgan Withdraws from Mayoral Race…..Why?

Supervisor of Elections:

Mr. Stafford,

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.

Sincerely,
David Morgan

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.

Zarzaur’s Latest Filing

This was filed on November 18th, 2019; it is PLAINTIFF’S RULE 37(c) MOTION FOR SANCTIONS FOR MATERIAL DISCOVERY VIOLATIONS AND/OR MOTION FOR LEAVE TO PERMIT LIMITED DISCOVERY ON RECENTLY UNCOVERED MATERIAL EVIDENCE. After Zarzaur received the texts from the PBA and well…here ya go.

The most important pages are below. For the whole document, click here.  The exhibits are here.

Morgan and Haines are caught in lies under oath yet. Bill Eddins says their lying.

As for the exhibits, this is the most exculpatory is his list of sex cases of officers listed by Morgan, is less than truthful.

Pages from 108-44.jpg

Morgan’s response as flimsy as it is can be found here.

Officer Zaid is missing. Officer Custer is also missing. The CFO, Henrique Dias who allegedly got caught in another jurisdiction with a transvestite prostitute.  Another set of employees were caught having sex on duty in the garage parking lot. Oh and how about the civilian who was caught exposing himself at the Creighton Rd. Walmart. Employees of a news outlet attest to being on site after hearing the incident on a police scanner. Somehow it is alleged that Morgan talked to the PPD and got that incident erased. Unfortunately, there were a few witnesses who have nothing to gain by telling this tale. Even if the CFO and the civilian incidents can’t be documented, thanks to Morgan and Haines having evidence destroyed, the others are disturbingly absent from the list. Why?

They are others that are alleged but also cannot be proven due to the lack of documentation generated on the incidence. In the texts, Haines talks about not wanting Tyree to “create a public record” with the PBA letter. That is a theme I have heard about too many times.  In speaking of the texts, I am mentioned a number of times within them.

I love to see how much I’m in their heads, particularly Debra Little. She seems to have a contempt for me that is stronger than I would have guessed. Oh well.  I will let the documents speak for themselves. I don’t believe it is too difficult to glean the intent of Morgan and Haines in these documents.

 

Do You Really Know Your Sheriff? Part 2

In case there are any questions about the performance of Ye Olde Sheriff, please consider this: the LET investigation of money mishandling is simply another red flag.

For those who may not know, the failure to disclose his military record is because Morgan made a deal with the Air Force. They were investigating him for misappropriation of funds (government credit card). This is the story that has come out of close friends that would be “in the know”, but Morgan eventually screwed them over. That is also how Morgan met Susan. She was with OSI and investigated him. The Air Force allowed him to retire quietly but he had to go. No criminal charges if he chose to do so. This story comes from multiple directions but it is the same account. However, the documentation is not there for the general public.

But I’ll play the devil’s advocate for a moment. If this doesn’t problematic for you as something that is not tangible enough, there are other incidents that show a predilection or pattern of behavior.

LETTER-TO-SHERIFF panhandle politico

Recently a letter came out in PanhandlePolitico.com that was correspondence from an internal employee displaying the in-fighting that goes on with this administration, but the most fascinating thing in that letter is worth noting. It confirms what I have always suspected. The writer talks about flagrant disregard for checks and balances within the accounting department, especially as it pertains to seized assets. Henrique Dias, the CFO at the ECSO, seems to be less concerned about properly handling money than he is about employee retribution. We are not talking about children. We are talking about custodians of your money.

Henrique Dias is a character. He was arrested for soliciting a prostitute years prior to his employment. It was ultimately not prosecuted but after I shared this, last year, with many others via the Escambia Clerk’s site, it disappeared. Expunged most likely, but that doesn’t mean it did not happen. It is not just me but employees describe Dias as sketchy and over the last few years, he has ingratiated himself to Morgan–so much so, that Morgan put him in charge of his campaign money.

clipular (57)

This seems counterintuitive. A supervisor, who has one employee found to be stealing over $1 million but has no clue until she retires, seems like a poor manager. Then, to see that same CFO show reckless disregard in the previous correspondence mentioned, certainly doesn’t reassure a rational person that he is competent to handle more responsibility.

In a private sector job, Dias would be held responsible for the money that walked out the door under his nose–at some level, to some degree. Then when he failed to comply with checks and balances put into place to prevent such an occurrence again, his boss should be questioning his ability to handle the burden of the county’s money. But instead of that, Morgan lets him handle his personal campaign money too.  Things that make you go hhmmm…

Now getting back to Morgan’s money skill. While he was not charged criminally, a source close to the governor claims that the infractions brought to light in Escambia County with the mis-spending of the LET fund were a state-wide plague.  There are 64 counties in Florida and David Morgan’s perversion of this liberty is a symptom of a bigger issue that cannot be handled by arrest and prosecution. The governor opted to change the legislation to address the problem but there for a few days, before this was decided to be the method to which the governor would handle this mis-spending, Morgan got quiet.  He sought counsel with a private attorney.  Why?  There was a moment in time that he was not sure he was going to jail over this action. If his intentions were as pure as he claims, would this have been the case?

Here’s the point here. whether any of the military accusations are true or the LET fund spending was “uncriminal” may be up for debate. However, the fact that Cathy Lister stole $1 million of the county’s money, there is a problem.Read her story.

Then going back to the letter above. It took almost 3 years for a system to be implemented after that to prevent future theft. That is unacceptable. To add insult to injury for the CFO to be resistant to these changes which are beneficial to the community indicates he should not have a job, yet he is given Morgan’s money to “handle” for his campaign.  Why? There is more than a sliver of question as to the integrity of this administration’s money handling.

Where does the buck stop in this administration?

I have not even mentioned the jail. The money grab from the BOCC that turned into them taking away of the jail. Again why?  It was money. Morgan had no interest in the jail or the conservation of that responsibility. He wanted more money to play with and when he was questioned by Gene Valentino, he started a political feud with him and turned over the jail. Why?

If you have any question about the management or mismanagement of county funds, you must consider changing the tide and voting Morgan out. He is the common denominator of all the issues.

Sheriff Morgan: Social Security Fraud?

In my analysis of Sir David’s amassing wealth, I decided to check into the fact the man AND his wife collect Social Security Retirement early along with $200K plus income. I recall before my father died, when he collected Social Security, he couldn’t earn more than X amount back in the 1990’s, or his benefits would be reduced and/or eliminated. So I went to the SocialSecurity.gov website, this is what I found:

The Social Security system offers retirement benefits to workers who have paid into the system through payroll or self-employment taxes. Social Security sets the rules and guidelines for beneficiaries, who can begin drawing benefits as early as age 62. if you work while on early retirement, Social Security adjusts the benefit amount.

 Full and Early Retirement Age

Full retirement age depends on your year of birth, and ranges from 65 to 67. The younger you are, the later Social Security sets your full retirement age. The age for early retirement — 62 — is the same for everyone.

Early Retirement Earnings

If you earn wages before full retirement age, Social Security sets an annual dollar limit and then begins to deduct $1 from your benefit for every $2 you earn over the limit. In 2015, the limit was set at $15,720. Social Security pays its benefits monthly, so if you earn $15,720 though the first six months of the year, and then start making $1,000 a month, the retirement benefit in the seventh and following months will be reduced by $500. This continues until you reach the year when you turn full retirement age, at which point Social Security applies new guidelines.

I contacted the Social Security Administration and was directed to their online calculator for benefits, based on birthdate, income and a median Social Security monthly anticipated amount. This is what the form looks like:

When I plug in Morgan’s info into the calculator, this is what comes up:

Based on his taxable income as defined by the IRS, of at least $200K a year, (actual amount in 2014 was $210, 038) neither of them are eligible for Social Security Retirement for that year, but still manage to earn $17,028 in Social Security Retirement—not Social Security Disability Income (SSDI). Sir David is not eligible based on this income until December 2018.

Now Susan Morgan is approximately 64 now and the last 2 full public disclosures made via the Florida Ethics Commission are for 2013 & 2014, making her potentially, eligible for early retirement at 62. Both years Social Security Benefits were paid, 2013- $ 5,592 & 2014- $ 17,028. Also, there are no 1099’s on file at the Ethics Commission for either year (2 for Susan for both years and 1 for Sir David).  Oversight?  Could be but with all the other documents provided why aren’t these simple forms provided for either of them for either years?

There appears to be some impropriety in this. We will let Social Security sort this out.

As one source asked me, ” How much money does one person need?” Especially noting the LACK of charitable contributions on the personal level but gross excesses of donations that are misappropriated through the Law Enforcement Trust fund (which are supposed to reintegrate forfeiture funds back into law enforcement programs) but instead go to every charitable organization including the Pensacola Opera, NAS glorification programs, and specific financially exuberant Southern Protestant churches that in turn provide funds to Sir David’s campaign at a rate comparable to his donations into theirs.  This is essentially money laundering LET Funds into his own campaign, as described by CJ’s Street Report.

What the hell?  Where is the oversight here?
