Do you remember this headline, Official rejects calls to quit over e-mails? Apparently some of our elected Republican officials don't? I think they even forget what they were asking for when then Huntington County Commissioner Jerry Helvie asked an employee to "snoop" into a few email accounts. And if I remember correctly, and I do, there was a petition presented to a special meeting of the Huntington County Commissioners asking for a Helvie's resignation, even before the state police were finished with their investigation and criminal charges were filed (which there weren't any).
County Treasurer Cindy Yeiter read a letter, signed by a number of county officials, including Hurlburt and Sheriff Kent Farthing, asking for Helvie to step down. - JG.net
So I guess my question to Huntington County Auditor Cindy Yeiter, Huntington County Commissioner Leon Hurlburt, former Huntington County Recorder and current Huntington County GOP Chair Angie Garner and the rest of the "number of county officials (and you know who you are)" who were calling for the resignation of Helvie over some "hacked emails' (which no criminal charges were ever filed), where is the outrage now over an indicted Huntington County Commissioner Tom Wall?
Are we to assume selective outrage? After all, those were private emails (not really) of elected officials Helvie was accused of breaching, whereas, Tom Wall was only indicted on 7 counts of inappropriately touching someone elses daughter/mother/wife. Would there be the outrage and calls to resign if Tom was indicted on 7 counts of battery (inappropriately touching two women) against an "elected officials" daughter/mother/wife? I guess there is only outrage if it happens to you? To quote Sarah Palin and I really hate to, "You Betcha"!
Huntington County Republicans, continuing to set the standard for political cowardness!
