From PD Letters:"Taxpayers pick up tab for Bennett's pricey lawyer"

Now everyone is seeing the kind of person... who's been running Cuyahoga's elections (!), and controlling the entire CCBOE culture with fear - vindictive, greedy, and with not one care about citizens- except as "food."
Some qualifications for the job, huh?
Funny how when one's whole reality is only that of early caveman, beating chests, and pissing contests - in the heat of such contest, one finally forgets to cover one's tracks to thinking humans - the very ones Bennett was supposed to be serving.

Taxpayers pick up tab for Bennett's pricey lawyer

A quote from one letter:
Will someone please ex plain this to me? According to a recent Plain Dealer editorial, if someone is accused of voluntary manslaughter in Cuyahoga County and cannot afford to hire an attorney, the court will assign counsel that will be paid a maximum of $50 an hour, with a cap on total fees of $900. On the other hand, if you are the chairman of the Ohio Republican Party and you get accused of abdicating your authority as a member of the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections, the county will provide you with an attorney as well. This attorney, however, will be paid $195 an hour, and his fees will be capped at $20,000.

I'll bet Chairman Bennett didn't even have to pay the $25 fee to fill out an affidavit of indigency to see if he qualified for court-appointed counsel. Ye gods.
