In an order released Thursday, commissioners publicly reprimanded Loftis and told him to pay $500 to help offset the cost of the case. If he doesn’t pay within 90 days, the amount becomes a $2,000 fine, the law’s maximum punishment.

Loftis says he will appeal the decision and fee.

His critics have long questioned a 2013 settlement of $9 million to the state’s two contracted attorneys. Of … Read the rest

Posted on October 27, 2016 10:10 pm by Robert Joseph Baker

You may think Mickey Mouse or Darryl from The Walking Dead are better candidates for Unites States president than those who are currently running for the office. You may think Bernie Sanders was bulldozed during the Democratic primaries, or still want Ted Cruz to be the first conservative president in eight years.
