For Baxter, truth is inconvenient

Matt Westerhold
Mar 23, 2010

Good Old Kevin Baxter can sure spin things away from truth whenever he wants, and a recent letter to the editor is a perfect example. Old Kevin made serious objection to a recent Register editorial critical of his office for issuing a flawed warrant that delayed the arrest of a child rapist.

The man was arrested "just 37 days" after an indictment was returned by a grand jury, Baxter says. I don't know about you, but even 37 days is too long for a child rapist to be free and on the loose. The man was accused in August 2006 and arrested by U.S. Marshals in late December that same year, so the actual delays were much longer than Baxter's spin. And local officials never lifted a finger to make an arrest after the flawed warrant was finally issued.

Baxter ignored repeated requests for documentation on the case and, when questioned directly about it on two seperate occasions, he stared back with a glassy-eyed look and feigned ignorance on the entire topic. How convenient. Play dumb when it serves you, Kevin, and then be filled with righteous indignation when you get called on your shortcomings.

Baxter also ignored written requests for the information, and for information on other flawed warrants that might have resulted in at least one other child rapist getting a free pass in Erie County. There are plenty of examples, but Baxter's abnormal need for secrecy keeps most under the radar.

And Baxter is quick to dump on his best buds whenever he gets put on the hot seat, including pointing the finger at the sheriff or deputies, or old best old bud county commissioner Tom Ferrell Jr. Kevin also will blame city officials for their shortcomings if that helps Kevin's cause. Kevin covers Kevin's butt -- and every other good old boy's behind -- as long as it serves Kevin.

It's time to cut the crap. You cannot fix a problem if you deny it exists, and when the sheriff's office has more than 800 outstanding warrants -- with serious felony crimes getting lost in bureaucracy -- there must be something wrong with the system.

If anyone is misrepresenting the facts, Kevin, it's you.

and Baxter's buddy Mulligan allows diversion for a former Port Clinton city official for stealing city property. Had Mulligan called in the Attorney General, you would see many heads roll in Port Clinton. But, Mulligan allowed a PRIVATE INVESTIGATION using private attorneys to investigate.

And if you give Mulligan money for his campaign, you can get out of jail free such as a store owner's wife.

and Baxter's Lorain county buds get illegal behind closed door hearings with the probate court judge so they can swagger out of the hearings with smirks on their face.........

Oh, I agree it IS indeed a pi$$ing match, but these two morons are so stupid, that at our expense, they feel the need to dog each other out in public. They are involving the community, and in the worng way. Westerhold uses his position atthe paper to slam Baxter, and Baxter will use his power at the prosecutors office to get even with Westerhold some how. In my opinion, they are both idiots. I think Baxter has a sligh edge, however, over Westerhold. I do like the fact that someone (Westerhold) is NOT intimidated by the "big man" Baxter. I would like to know how Baxter gets away with all his corruption? Why is it no one looks into his wrong doings?

Would this by some slim chance be one of those FIXED CASES.....
How can a lawsuit relative to the ERIE COUNTY PROBATE ESTATE of a life-long ERIE COUNTY resident be filed in the jurisdiction of CUYAHOGA COUNTY? How can a JUDGE from Cuyahoga County DISMISS a lawsuit in the jurisdiction of CUYAHOGA COUNTY that pertains to the jurisdiction of a PROBATE ESTATE in ERIE COUNTY?

He is still in office because he does a good job. He is still in office because all this accusations are not true.

If these hate filled people had any proof of the lies that they are spreading, he would already be gone. It is very easy to come on here and write a hate filled blog with no proof.

Mr. Baxter will continued to get reelected because he is an outstanding leader that is respected by most of the Erie County voters. These few hate filled people on the blogs don't amount to enough votes to do anything.

Another accusation without proof. If you want to accuse him of something, then prove it or shut up.

Doesn't Kevin Baxter uses his office to advance his agenda? Krista, Else and Ejay all criticized him and were all charged with crimes. That sounds a little fishy to me.
I wonder if he used his county office to work on his private business. Does anyone know the answer to that?

Elsebeth charged with intimidating that poor corrupt old fart judge.....that was so FIXED it was pathetic. And yes, according to his brother and EB he was using his county office to work on his private business. And whoever said he loves to protect the guilty----you got that RIGHT. Baxter is the one that's a MENACE to society.

Wonder if the racist judge and the good old boys had a party after EB's sentencing....I can hear them all drawling now------any time you need a special little favor (hee-hee) from Erie County SWEETHEART you certainly won't have to ask twice. YUCK!

Kevin Baxter is still in office because he has somehow instilled a great deal of fear upon anyone who has thought about running against him. He is still in office because he is connected with all of the right people. He is still in office because the family and friends that he gets along with are county officials as well. He will continue to be re-elected because no one will challenge him. (WHY???) As far as to how much he is actually respected...His reputation is speaking for itself. And in reference to being hateful...why does Mr. Baxter have the ability to denigrate and overpower any one who is critical of him?

Listen numb nuts. The Attorney General does NOT answer to the citizens even though the Attorney General begs for your votes. The Attorney General only answers to COUNTY PROSECUTORS. This is a fact. This is one reason why those ministers got nowhere on Murray's advice because Murray knew that only the COUNTY PROSECUTOR can call in the Attorney General for an investigation.

The only way to expose the corruption is to call in FEDERAL AGENCIES. COUNTY PROSECUTORS have a good thing going in Ohio. They hold a LOT of power and cover each other's backside. Don't believe me? Call the Attorney General office yourself. They will tell you to take any evidence to the COUNTY PROSECUTOR. Isn't that just dandy?

How do Cuyahoga County attorneys get away with coming into this county and filing motions on behalf of a NON-CLIENT-----like Partition Actions against property and fraud Preliminary Judicial Reports. Even worse, how do they get away with filing Oral Motions on behalf of non-clients REQUESTING THEIR ATTORNEY FEES BE TAKEN OUT OF THE PROCEEDS FROM PROPERTY?

I have gone through the death of three family members and I was the executor to two of their estates. Their wills were filed after their deaths and everything went according to there wishes. So how is all this probate fraud going on. Wasn't the will of Baxter's mother filed after her death? Why did a retired judge have to rule on Ejay's complaints? Why are all the records sealed in probate? My family's records aren't sealed in probate. Something sure sounds fishy there.

Apparently, you did not review Ohio Revised Code Section 2913.61(C)concerning the multiple charge Krista Harris was indicted on in violation of Ohio law. Don't get upset with me because Kevin and his friends are exposed. If the law says the lady could have only legally been charged with one count how on earth does 7+ attorneys sit back and not file any motions to dismiss the multiplicitous indictment against her. Why should a person accused of a crime have to try and defend themselves against additional charges that are truly unwarranted. They tried to make her seem like she was a hard core thief. Clearly, the evidence that the money was given to her via gift seems to the truth. The other family members were jealous that they didn't receive the money so they falsified information against Krista. Court records show that Krista was offered Diversion. So why on earth would she not accept that offer if she did commit a crime. Who goes to trial twice screaming they are innocent if there were offered an easy way out to avoid prison time and a criminal record and doesn't accept. No one that I know except someone who is innocent and being railroaded on sham charges. Now, Lisa Harris who is Krista's accuser has been involved in some unscrupulous dealings involving probate fraud with her deceased mother's estate. Elsebeth's documentation shows that Krista had discovered that a notary listed on 4 quit-claim deeds filed on March 25, 1999 at the Erie County Recorders Office was not a licensed notary the day in which LISA HARRRIS claims that her mother, Emma Harris, which Krista's grandmother allegedly transferred all of her realestate to Lisa. That matter is currently under investigation. So it does it appear that Lisa Harris is guilty of falsifying deeds in our recorders office and committing multiple theft offenses from her relatives. Lisa is also the same individual who claims Krista wrongfully took monies from her aunt. I smell a rat and it smells like the odor is coming from the Probate Court and Kevin Baxter's Office

RE: FALSIFIED DEEDS
I've got a false quit claims deed that was filed in the Erie County Recorder's office 5 months BEFORE my mother's death by a Lorain county attorney that's FRAUD with a capital F. It states the POA (with Lorain County Recorder numbers) is on file in the Erie County Recorder's office under my mother's CORRECT NAME. (The property was in a Trust and not even a LEGAL POA can change a Trust)
The FORGED POA I found filed in the Lorain County Recorder's office months AFTER my mother's death doesn't even have her middle initial CORRECT.
A Recorder of a County is liable for all filings. And the RECORDER didn't know when she filed it that there was NO POA on file? The RECORDER didn't know that OHIO LAW states before property can be transferred under a POA the POA has to be on file in the COUNTY where the property is SITUATED? The RECORDER didn't KNOW that the NUMBERS were not Erie County Recorder Numbers? The RECORDER didn't know that this fraudulent transfer was going to cause serious DEFECTS in the title?
BULL!!!! And that's EXACTLY what the Lorain County Recorder said, too. In fact, she even said that the Erie County Recorder was FEIGNING IGNORANCE about the whole thing.
And I don't believe the ERIE COUNTY RECORDER did this on her OWN MERIT, either. I believe BAXTER was behind it.

I don't understand these comments about transfers of property and falsified deeds filed in the recorder's office...
Don't property transfers go through the auditor? So how is the auditor approving transfers of property under the disguise of a power of attorney when there IS no power of attorney? Something is REEKING there and it goes beyond the recorder. It sounds like friends of certain people in this county are being granted illegal favors........

Anonymous

In Erie County its legal to draft up a different power of attorney for an incompetent client and it's also legal to do it without the KNOWLEDGE of all the children. It's also legal to hide the power of attorney in a different county.
It's legal to give TWO of the children unlimited power at the client's bank so the bank can close out a Savings Account in TRUST for a GRANDSON and transfer the money over to a new account in an out-of-state bank under a different name so the beneficiary can be changed over to the TWO fraud power of attorneys. (and that's only a small part of it)
And on the flip side of the coin Krista Harris gets sent to jail for 5 years over alleged white collar crimes involving a power of attorney........

Yes i agree there is alot of favors and cover ups in sandusky. This has all been the case and it wont change. But my problem is why does Kevin push the limit for certain crimes for certain people and not the rest. One female gets assulted and the guy goes to jail while the next guy gets a slap on the wrist. One child molester gets probation and the next guy get years and years. Citizens have to be held to a standard of law but not the police. Look at all the crooks on the force. 3 seperate child abusers all free. the harshest penalty was a couple months in prison for fitzpatrick thats it. Police should be held to a higher standard of law. protect and serve is a joke. more like grab and abuse is proper. Girl scout cookies thieves, the list goes on and on. how many times do i see these cops stop home on one of the many breaks they take. this is such a shame. this county is awful. you dont have this behavior as often in any other county.

The FBI raids on the two Cuyahoga Judges chambers sure does appear in the makings of another Operation Greylord where 92 officials had been indicted, including 17 judges, 48 lawyers, 8 policemen, 10 deputy sheriffs, 8 court officials, and 1 state legislator.

Here is an update about the raid on the two Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Judges.
Both judges were allies of Russo. I have to wonder about Judge McCafferty denies any knowledge of the raid."I have no idea what you're talking about," McCafferty said Wednesday when questioned by a reporter. I guess in her mind, the FBI raid never took place.

In Erie County it's considered a CRIMINAL OFFENSE (??????) for a family member to demand documents from an insurance company and it agents pertaining to TRUST contracts that they claimed were all cancelled during the short time their incompetent client was in the ECCF.....

Hey Matt, great job for speaking up !

I only wish Kevin Baxter were picking up soap in a shower and sharing a cell with his victims.

Kevin has a long line of folks waiting for justice. It's ridiculous he's gotten away with his corruption this long.

Isn't it strange that all of the comments that defend Kevin Baxter on this blog are from Kevin Baxter.

Makes me wonder if Kevin is coked up at night believing that he's some honest person, hallucinating thinking he's a good prosecuotor. lol

Now get this Matt,Shawn Caston the one and only Shawn Caston back in the spotlight again. This time he was caught trying to leave the scence of yet another crime and guess what, he was under the influence again - So drunk he peed his pants. Brings back memory of the shooting 14 years ago, only this victim is white.

If I were Kevin I'd be very worried about Shawn and what he's going to pull Kevin in. Rumor has it Shawn is cooperating with the Fed's and he's signed a new affidavidt- I'm not telling for who - Shawn stated he told Kevin Baxter that Dewitt wasn't with him nor Darryl when he made attempts to shoot at the home of Jerome Caffey.

Kevin Baxter also knew that Jerome Caffey fired shot back from his home- Lt. Pritt found the gun in the dryer of the home of Jerome Caffey and it revealed it had been fired. None of this was allowed as evidence because Kevin had in out for Dewitt McDonald and would do whatever it took to get him locked up once and for all, claiming he was some mass murderer....

For some reason the Register didn't give it much conversation about Shawn. I'm sure its going to open up a can of worms. Kevin baxter offered Shawn Caston a deal on a murder charge folks. Was it becasue she was black woman that died that he could care less becasue he wanted to sell his sole to Devil to get Mr. McDonald.

Lets go back to when Mark Everett died big MARK remeber him Kevin. You wanted him also. Folks, it was when Krista Harris turned on Kevin that you went crawling to Shawn to be your scapegoat wanting a confession from him to save your bottom. People know about this story. Lifetime movie in the makings.

It amazes me how Kevin is so on the defense everytime someone brings back the old news that happened 14 years ago. Kevin continues to bad mouth inocent people calling Dewitt McDonald a drug dealer when Dewitt was on Kevins level in Kevins circle - Kevin you gambled dewitt gambled- u used coke Dewitt he probably used it with you. Dewitt owe your Boys money- think back to "REGAN" VIDEO PURSUIT IN COLUMBUS OHIO - KOOL AIDS WHERE You frequently visted yourself and placed a few bets. This was your operation. BAXTER YOUR A LOW LIFE... AND I DREAD TO SEE THE DAY WHEN YOUR WORLD COMES CRUMBLING DOWN. If you know Dewitt McDonald's street habits it's because your habits are no better.

Now quit running your mouth about people that you have HURT ! You are a slime ball jerk of a prosecutor and I can't wait til the day that you eat your words and you get back what you have done to destroy so many lives.

Your an evil man ! Please someone get out and run against him Sandusky needs a change.

Amen to that Matt, the man that did the drive-by shooting that killed the woman on Perry St. (?) and let out of prison early becauce the FBI got info from him they wanted, he has sence had 4 hit and run accidents, which baxter said he didn't know about 3 of them. He goes to court this moning or monday morning wondering how many slap on the hands he will get for also most killing the 4th, happened this last week.

If this is a matter of public record in the Auditor's office----that Baxter is stealing taxpayers money from this Furtherance of Justice fund----then why is the Auditor and the County concealing this? Maybe cause the Auditor uses the free money, too? It sounds like this whole rotten county is corrupt-----Baxter, judges, auditor, recorder, right on down the line....

Considering it's ILLEGAL for a Recorder of a County to allow permanent records to be removed from the office, how are Lorain County attorneys getting away with this in ERIE COUNTY?
"Dear Mr.-----Enclosed please find a copy of the original Deeds to the property now on file in the Lorain County Auditor's office." signed-------(Lorain County attorney)

This county sounds like some kind of satan cult where Baxter and his cronies are the leaders and the brainwashed members are the taxpaying citizens...

Not voting for Tom Ferrell isn't going to solve the problem when he's only ONE of Baxter's good 'ole boys. What about the rest of them? There must be a lot of corruption and cover ups involving the probate court, auditor, recorder, etc. etc. It's way past time for an investigation into this cancer that is eating away at the entire county!!! What the heck is the matter with OHIO that they are allowing this to go on...

In consideration of all the complaints about Kevin Baxter and then the complaints about cases being fixed to cover up probate fraud (including the Baxter estate) it certainly doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out why nobody ever runs against Baxter and the Erie County Probate Court Judge Beverly McGookey. So what does Tom Ferrell have to do with the seriousness behind this situation? I'm not voting for Ferrell but getting rid of Ferrell because he's one of Baxter's GOB's isn't going to solve THAT problem or the rest of the corruption that's going on in this County.

I'm so glad the topic of Kevin Baxter is up for debate ! We must come together to get him out of office and his good ole boys.... Sandusky can pull together by cleaning up the court house. Ty Tone and Roger Binnett should go also they took Ann Mascharis place by protecting Kevin every chance they get

Let me add to the Krista Harris - Kevin Baxter ordeal. Krista Harris should go after Kevin and get him for everything he has. This woman has a 60 Minutes Case waiting to happen. From what I understand she has filed a sworn affidavidt stating that she lied on Dewitt McDonald who is serving a life sentence in prison due to her testimony . Not only should Krista be vindicated but Dewitt McDonald has lost alot of life on a dirty crime that Baxter used to put him behind bars. This man has lost his children growing up and spending time with his family as well. No matter what Baxter thought about Dewitt he has no right to take a life. This is ridiculous. Krista stated in her affidavidt she perjured her testimony due to Baxter threats of charing her with murder. She also stated that Kevin Baxter moved her to Cleveland with fear that someone would get wind that he was screwing her when he felt like it. He used money from the Furtherance of Justice Fund stating it was for witness protection giving Krista a total of 800.00 folks ! He is so stupid because this information is in her affidavidt too. I can't stand this man for what he is doing to people and quite frankly for this case to have happened 14 years ago and its still up for discussion is saying that SOMEONE is getting close to a breakthrough. If any of these victims ever get the chance to have thier day back in court it is going to be a sad day for Kevin Baxter and a happy one for those standing in line cheering for victory. Its time for Sandusky cistizens to take back what has been rightfully stolen. You have to start at the top by sending complaints to the FBI blaming Tom Moyer the good ole boy from Sandusky, Ohio and Kevin Baxters cover up and demand that an investigation take place on all of the complaints that have been turned away regarding Kevin Baxter. Do not vote for Tom Ferrell and anyone who's name is coming up in any illegal activity. It's not about party anymore it's about change. Lets help set Baumgarnter free , vindicate Ejay, Brian and Shawn, Let's stop paying taxes especially if Kevin doesn't have to then why should we. Lets make a difference and hammer kevin. Dewitt McDonald and Daryl Turner serving a life sentence and Shawn Caston set free. IS THIS RIGHT AND IS WHAT WE ARE SPENDING OUR TAX MONEY ON, INNOCENT PEOPLE who deserve to be set free.

Has anybody figured out the Nuesse case yet? When did Kline fire Nuesse---BEFORE she hired Bailey or AFTER? Were there any complaints about the retired judge Cirigliano, with known connections to Baxter, being involved? Were there any complaints about all those expensive depositions after the expensive Murman Report? What happened to the ministers who wanted the Attorney General brought in? Are there any complaints about the intentional LOOOOOOOONG delay in getting the case over with? The case is CUT & DRIED---good old typical Erie County corruption at the taxpayers expense.

You're going to hell ! Have you really done all of those bad things ?

I'm overwhelmed with disbelief. It makes no sense that you're disrespected by citizens who are outraged with you , this is embarassing for residence of Sandusky. I hope that none of this ifnormation is of truth. Kevin, if your involved in illegal activity I would recommend you resign immediately. Information like this floating around doesn't send a good message to the community.

All unproven and a bunch of CRAP? Then don't read these comments you IDIOT! With 456 comments, I find a lot of these comments very thought provoking.
I started reading the links provided to the corruption in Cuyahoga County and the raid of the two judges chambers.

One thing that I never realized was that Cuyahoga County has 34 Common Pleas Court judges. The FBI investigations are only starting and I wonder which other judges chambers will be raided next. It is kind of an interesting site as all of the judges have a short biography about each one. I will come back later to comment about one particular judge whose biography raised a lot of questions.

You have to remember that this kind of crap goes on all over Ohio. No companies want to come to Ohio because of all of the corruption. No companies means no jobs. Both political parties are to blame but it seems like the Democrats have really been active being crooks.

Look at this prosecutor in Montgomery County. Why isn't this prosecutor disbarred? Just another slap on the wrist.

http://www.daytondailynews.com/n...

"Heck agreed not to seek employment with a different state or county agency for a period of 18 months, except for an elective office."

WHAT IN THE HECK DOES THAT MEAN? ELECTIVE OFFICE?
Heck CAN run for public office? No wonder there are so many crooks that hold public office.

I would like to know Redfern's thoughts about all of these crooked Democrats in Ohio. These Democrats keep promising jobs, but only for themselves and their cronies.

Checking out the short biography of Shirley Saffold, I have formulated many questions about her even being qualified to be a judge. Simply winning votes in a judicial race does not qualify one to be a judge. I noticed that she did not post any law school honors which leads me to believe that she was a mediocre law student.

http://cp.cuyahogacounty.us/inte...

On her website, Saffold lists her "Recent Opinions" and have to wonder about one of her "opionins" that stood out. http://cp.cuyahogacounty.us/inte...

State of Ohio v. Dr. Elsebeth Baumgertner

This "opinion" really stood out which makes me feel that this is Saffold's "trophy" opinion. Notice the spelling of "Baumgertner" but what is even more questionable is the 3 page opinion and how it is written.

Isn't the legal term for "child" or "children" reserved for MINORS? If not, then can "child" or "children" be LEGALLY described as any member of the human race, even an old 80 year old retired judge?

I happened to read Safford's 3 page "opinion" about Baumgartner here.
http://cp.cuyahogacounty.us/inte...

This Court further acknowledges the email sent to Bryan DuBois, an original co-defendant,
where Ms. Baumgartner indicated an interest in Judge Markus's children. Ms. Baumgartner is one
to bloviate. This was an attempt to once again intimidate Judge Markus. Such language and intent
contained in this email has a clear intent to intimidate Judge Markus when referencing his own
children.

ALL of Markus's "children" are ADULT LAWYERS who can certainly take care of themselves.
"Three Children (all lawyers): Linda Daniels (she and her husband organized law firm in Research Triangle Park, N.C.); Scott Markus (professional mediator in San Diego, CA.); Kent Markus (former Deputy Chief of Staff, U.S. Department of Justice, now Law Professor at Capital University Law School and Director of National Adoption Law Institute)."

Kent Markus is currently Governor Strickland's chief legal counsel.
http://www.law.capital.edu/Facul...

Don't ask any questions about Markus's "childen" because it will "intimidate an old retired judge" and Safford will THROW THE BOOK at you.

Which reminds me not to send any emails to our local judges to critcize them for their job performance on the judge. The judges may take my critism as "intimidation" because their feelings will be hurt.

Three pages sure does seem like a very SHORT "opinion" for somebody getting sentenced to 8 years in prison. But it certainly appears that Saffold THREW THE BOOK at Baumgartner to shut her up to make the "problem go away" for somebody who knew too much.

Some "judge" who sends people to the Gulag to shut them up but helps to keep real criminals on the street.

Wow! That's interesting! Kent Markus, son of the poor, old retired judge that was so "intimidated" by EB, is the chief legal counsel for Governor Strickland....Dirty s.o.b.'s. They all played a hand in ruining Ohio and Erie County. Too bad they all don't drop dead.

Considering how it's illegal for attorneys to mislead and lie to a Court of Law, wonder why they get away with it in Erie County---why aren't they ever held accountable? Yet on the other hand Kim Nuesse had to be held accountable by getting FIRED over her so-called DISHONESTY involving a $15.00 Parking Ticket.....This county is run by IDIOTS!

I heard it took months and months for the FBI to go through the voluminous paperwork pertaining to all the fraud going on with the foreclosures in Cuyahoga County that banks, realtors and title companies were involved in. I heard it took YEARS for the scum to put OHIO in this MESS and OHIO is never going to recover from it. It appears like some of the Judges were involved in it, too.

During one of Elsbeth Baumgartner's early conversations with the FBI one of the agents described to her the elements of small town corruption. He explained that in a small town, where the judicial, legal, media, BANKING and professional communities are closely knit and exclusive, a virulent strain of corruption can grow........how very interesting that he included BANKS.

I'm still waiting to hear how a Cuyahoga County judge can have a 3 hour hearing behind closed doors with attorneys to conspire on how to dismiss a case in Cuyahoga County pertaining to an ERIE COUNTY PROBATE ESTATE.

Matt,

Thank you for trying to bring out the truth. According to Baxter's classmates from SHS class of 1975, Kevin was not very bright. He was also a drug user while in high school.

Could you please check on his grade point average in college and also in law school? Also check on how many times that he had to take the bar exam.
Personally, I don't think that Kevin is all that smart but relies on Rubino, Barylski and others staff attorneys to help him out with his six figure salary.

What is the budget of Baxter's office? It has to be well over $1 Million with 9 or 10 staff attorneys and others. It must be nice to be a parasite to the taxpayers money.

SanduskyGirl28

If Baxter's been on drugs since the 1970's his brain must be FRIED by now. We got some real winners running this county and the scary part of it is they sentence people that are no better than they are---most are probably better.

Rumor has it Kevin was up late last night sniffing coke, and popping ambien to get to sleep. He's a regular partier of coke and pills. When is Kevin going to get drug tested ? It will be a happy day for sandusky. Hair folicle will be the best test.

Considering all the complaints from Ejay Baxter about fraud in the Baxters estate doesn't anybody find it odd that nobody ever runs against Baxter and McGookey? Something sure does smell rotton in Denmark there....I guess it pays to be a prosecutor---you can even get away with stealing from your own family.

Earlier somebody mentioned the FBI raids against a couple of Cuyahoga County Common Pleas judges. I have to wonder why one of the judges would lie and say that no such raid took place.

Come on now, what kind of a judge would actually try to lie their way out of it? It has to be some very stupid judge that lacks some good old common sense.

Judge Binette recused himself from the lawsuit filed against MetroParks stating conflict of interest. Tone & McGookey also have claimed conflicts of interest so a VISITING JUDGE will be brought in.
Binette claims his recusal being: Binette appointed one of the three Erie MetroParks board members Micah Vaters and Vaters' wife is one of Binette's court administrators.
Sherma Vaters is nothing more than the Common Pleas Court transcriber. I believe she also transribes for the Probate Court. I believe Vaters is also know to OMIT (in the transcibed records) some of the illegal and unfair procedures pulled off by the judges.

I was doing some checking and found out that Kevin Baxter hired Krista Harris's former lawyer to work for him. Her name is Cheryl Goodrum, she's African-American. And get this, from what I understand she was a low life, piece a crap lawyer before Baxter hired her. I wonder why he did that, it must be to try to get information from her about Krista? This is some interesting news. Baxter hired her almost 6 months after she represented Harris on those sham theft charges. That doesn't make any sense to me. Why would the prosecutor hire the defendant's (Krista Harris)lawyer within months of her false conviction knowing that Harris was going to appeal the case.

Maybe he just likes black women and he is screwing her too.

If you saw what Cheryl looked like you would puke. She is but ugly. I think she wears dread locks or something. And her hair is real nappy looking. Real ugly woman. Now on the other hand, Krista Harris is a very pretty lady. Whatever floats his boat.
