Our St. Johns County Clerk of Courts and Comptroller BRANDON J. PATTY, former Republican Executive Committee chair, former Congressional candidate, is the man who fired Inspector General Nila Arissa, allegedly over handling of former Cultural Resources Coordinator Trey Alexander Asner's complaint of fraud, waste, abuse and retaliation.
A defiant BRANDON PATTY refuses to order SJC OIG to investigate.
There's PATTY with his patron, developer-State Senator TRAVIS JAMES HUTSON and County Commission Chairman CHRISTIAN WHITEHURST, on Primary Election night in 2020.
This IG's office does not deserve accreditation.
This IG's office lacks independence.
This IG's office is guilty of desuetude, torpor, decrepitude and hebetude.
Unless it investigates Mr. Asner's complaint, FDLE accreditation should be DENIED.
Write, call or speak out to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement on proposed accreditatation of SJC OIG, which is a lapdog and not a watchdog.
