Smile for the camera, Kevin

Matt Westerhold
Mar 23, 2010

Kevin Baxter will testify this month in the Kim Nuesse civil service hearing, and I expect he will allow the cameras to roll when he does. That would be the best way to assure residents get the best and most complete information on this important topic.

I’m hoping we’ll be able to livestream his testimony at sanduskyregister.com. That coverage gets underway again Dec. 15, when the hearings resume for two days. You have to respect the “justice delayed, justice denied” strategy the city’s crack Cuyahoga County legal team has adopted.  The delay-delay strategy means these hearings could go on for many more months. When the evidence does not favor your agenda, stall, stall, stall.

The county prosecutor already has acknowledged numerous inaccuracies in the statement he gave to Murman investigators, although he has not been specific or explained why he changed information in their $22,000 report. I stopped counting at a dozen inaccuracies when Baxter had that deer in the headlights response to my questions. That probably won’t work so well under cross-examination.

The stories Baxter told the crack investigators about two specific meetings with Nuesse appears intentionally misleading when contrasted to what other participants in those meetings recalled. Of course, that’s just the opinion I reached after reading Baxter’s witness statement and then talking with those other participants after the $22,000 Murman report was released. Those crack investigators never bothered interviewing any of those witnesses who could have provided them more complete and accurate descriptions of those meetings. Did I mention the bill for that report alone was $22,000? The cost to date for Nuesse-gate, including the tab for civil service hearing, is likely approaching $300,000.

HAVE A (GIRLSCOUT) COOKIE, PHIL

And another thing, it’s not personal for me regarding Phil Frost. He might very well be the top cop in the nation. I just don’t think making a false criminal allegation against your boss – that goes nowhere and is disproved at a civil service hearing – is good police work, even for a bad cop. It's also a newsworthy topic. Will there be any followup? Will the city be investigating the false criminal allegation. It would be "super-crazy," to quote Phil, if it did not get reviewed.

Recently I was visiting an art museum and found many paintings, sculptures, and papier-mâché sculptures done by an artist known as “Matt”. I thought the artwork looked oddly like a bunch of a$$holes, so I asked the museum staff for help.

I spoke to owner of the place who informed me this was indeed the work of their premier artist. He continued on referencing the many accolades “Matt” and his artwork received. One painting won the National Homo Society award for most life-like male orifice, along with the Richard Simmons sphincter award. This is nothing new because Matt has been winning awards for years. Matt has also appeared on the Ellen, and Rosie Shows.

I began to think…..art like this reminds me of the $hitty storues my friend, Matt Westerhold wrights. Matt has recently been spotted in the gay porno “In the Seat”. Matt played the naked hot tub,sports wrighter. He also started in “Westerback Mountain”, a gay love story.

With my mind swirling with concern, I asked who this Matt was. Finally, all of my concern was proven true. Matt the gallery is the work of one Matt Westerhold.

I attempted to reach Matt for comment with negative results. I did speak to his publicist who advised “ I think the Matt the gallery collection speaks to Matt's true love of the male anus. I think he has a warm gentile touch”

I agree.

You guys are NOT going to win your cause in writing satire like EC is writing. Who cares what a persons sexual orientation is about? It is none of YOUR business just like it is no ones business how you conduct your sex lives and how many affairs you might have had. Who cares? All you are doing is making everyone support Westerhold in his quest to plow over SPD. Writing junk like EC writes is worse than anything Matt Westerhold has ever written. All you are doing is making Westerhold's opinions and cause stronger about the conduct of SPD and all the cronies. If I were working at SPD, I would TELL EC, "Hey, don't be on our side."

I think the story that this EC person wrote is no diffrent than the ones written here by westerhold. Lies, comedy, and rumors. How do you know EC works for SPD. Why do you support Westerholds cause to "plow over SPD".

I am no SPD officer, and I dont think anybody supports westerholds causes other than himself. I think you are westerhold, not some city taxpayer. You probaly live in a nice house in the middle of the country like westerhold, not the getto like I do.

Don't think I am telling the truth. Visit me so we can discus our thoughts. If you want my address ask me on the blogs.

You may as well give up on him, meaning EC. Apparently he has the same mental conditioning as those who are employed by the SPD and contribute comments on this article. While I do not believe that all SPD Officers are contaminated with the same attitude that is reflected by the Mindless Drone who actually confessed of being SPD employee,I do feel that the contamination has had effects on the whole Dept., which are going to take years to correct. Some ask, why do you support Westerhold. The answer is quite simple. Because we believe the SPD desperately needs an infusion of Respect,Honestly and Trustworthiness. All of which are currently lacking, not only with the SPD, but also with Kevin Baxter, The City Manager and the Murman report. The SPD started this situation by trying to undermine and get rid of their Commander, Ms Nuesse. In the end, I think they will wish they had never started this battle as I see it to be the unraveling of not only their Dept., but also the office of the City Manager who played into their hands. I too support the video taping of LE as well as taping any conversations one may have with them. I am not sure which is the scariest, SPD or Kevin Baxter. The world was not meant to be this way.

@ REGARDING EC

That's all you had to do was mention that Nuesse name...it explains your idiotic comment. Nuesse, Nuesse, Nuesse. It sickens me to see all of the hatred she and Westerhold have caused for our police dept. and city leaders. I am one citizen, among many others, that are thankful for them all. Too bad that most of you don't even know what you are talking about. I am truly beginning to think that some of these blogs are Westerhold himself...makes more sense...he is on a roll with his agenda to try to protect Nuesse. I am thankful that I am one that saw right through Westerhold and am willing to bet that quite a few others have also.

Like belly buttons, everyone has an opinion. So, those who do not agree with you are idiots? Seems like something a shallow mind would provide as a defense to a situation, clearly brought on by the SPD. If you did not notice, we are in the middle of a civil service hearing. Those who provided the Murman report have been exposed to be less than accurate in by their report and ignoring witnesses who could have supported other views. Now we are waiting on the testimony of our elected official Kevin Baxter, who also has already has acknowledged numerous inaccuracies in the statement he gave to Murman investigators. Personally, I would be upset with Westerhold and the SR, if they did not report on this. The whining by the SPD about the report and the intimidation alleged by members of the press seem to support this conclusion. The inaccuracies of the report and the questionable ethics of those doing the report, based on the testimony at the hearing, leads me to believe. the whole report should be tossed and Nuesse should be reinstated. Of course, I am just an idiot, so what do I know. Maybe we should listen to the SPD, we all trust them. Or do we?

That my dear, is where you are very mistaken...only Nuesse supporters, like yourself, are permitted to have an opinion or suffer your rediculous consequences. You mean to tell me that you have not noticed that?? ;)

Dear, I am no from SPD nor have anyone related from there...so don't go there.

That "DEAR WHATEVER" is so obvious. So this is what you do in between your "editorials" 'eh Matt?

Matt you should go work for Fox News, you know their motto

"We distort, you comply!!!"

Well, you have the distort part down. It seems though as if you are having problems getting people the people of Sandusky to to comply though!!!! Oh well keep trying to tear apart the city and county.

I wonder how long it will be until this post is taken down.

Sandusky – Dear Commissioners for the City of Sandusky: Last Saturday morning theSandusky Register ran a story headlined “Baxter blasts details in Murman report”. The headline and the story were taken completely out of context. The Editor himself,Matt Westerhold, called me and interviewed me for this story. I found this strangesince that is traditionally a reporter’s role in the news reporting business. However,Matt Westerhold’s role in this whole matter has been strange, if not, somewhat bizarre. Based on editorial after editorial, story after story, there is an obsession that is unprofessional if not unhealthy.....

It is obvious that there are a few nervous SPD folks who may end up losing big time when this becomes all becomes a civil suit for defamation and Nuesse will have the last laugh!

Of course, there may also be a Federal judge rendering an opinion to strengthen her case!!!

If I looked like that picture, I would stop wearing contacts. Who wears contacts with an allergy? It must be embarrassing to look like you have been on a binge all night and not fit for work. I would wear glasses and look like you are at least sharp to perform your duties. If Baxter lies, he could get disbarred.

FOX News would not hire Westerhold to sweep the floors.

For the sake of Charity, he would organize a couple grudge matches where he gets in the ring and goes a few rounds with Phil Frost and/or Kevin Baxter. I am sure that Kevin and Phil would do it, but I am pretty sure that Matt would be to much of a ??? (rhymes with Nuesse)to do it. Come on Matt, call Kevin and Phil and set it up. If they turn you down, let us know in another one of your mindless editorials. Show us you have a pair.

I would love to see that broadcast live on the web. Please Matt do us all a solid. Ill even train you!

'Mindless Drones' is NOT a member of the SPD. It's '007', i.e. Bob the Tiara owner, i.e. the greatest local living example of what too much alcohol can do to an already meager intellect.

That was funny....

Thanx! That video was the best.

SPD should HOPE Nuesse will be found terminated for just cause. If she wins, she will not return to the job and probably resign with a settlement. My concern is: Those officers that decided to testify against her and are proven to be untruthful are NOT covered under qualified immunity. They can be made susceptible, individually, to defamation or character assassination civil lawsuits. If she is found terminated with just cause then it should be over. If not, everyone can be named which will require more legal mediation and more monetary expense. The press will be exempt.
