  1. Thanks for once again, and always, putting it out there for us so we will know the facts. If it were not for you we would be in total darkness on so many backdoor political deals. It never stops!

So it was the guy that offered the bribe that was in the wrong……..a lot of people thought that too! And also Jim Tarver told me after that he would run from people he didn’t know because he was afraid they too would offer him a bribe. He once ran for county commissioner.

  3. Well said Sylvia! It would be great if he started squealing like a pig but I seriously doubt it. He might have to make a deal just as someone else said. Get a big bag of popcorn is all I can say!
