There have been several letters to the editor in support of Fortuna City Council member Debbie August (in the Times Standard and the Beacon) and they have all accused the DA's office of prosecuting her for revenge because she was a vocal supporter of the recall effort.
First) This investigation was initiated by the Grand Jury and the DA is obligated to pursue it.
Second) Is anyone who supported the recall to get a free ride on any future violations of the law, that the DA should NOT prosecute them as it might appear to be vindictive in nature?
Third) Might it be that those who are guilty of corruption are particularly unhappy to have Paul in office exactly because he will not turn a blind eye activities that other DAs might and that is why they supported the recall.
It would be great to see some letters that address any or all of these issues.
