FTR - I posted this morning and there were no investigations recorded for 2015 and 2015...and suddenly - *Presto - there is some effort to show that the County IG actually does something....
Who are you trying to help in this race, Joan Synenberg who's running on the Donald Trump ticket? Is she on the bench or campaigning? Have you bothered to check if she's turned in her campaign finance reports on time like you did T.J. Dow? You're writing about Andrea Nelson Moore allegedly campaigning on county time. Are you aware that Synenberg's pre-primary campaign finance report was submitted in violation of ORC 3517.10 and that it created a violation of ORC 3517.11(d) that prevented her from moving forward as a primary candidate? Of course you didn't bother to check because you only target "certain" people for this type of scrutiny. http://boe.cuyahogacounty.us/DisplayFileContent.aspx?guid=d7d60402-14c2-454f-947d-20f7481c46e0 Her report was due 12 days before the March 15th primary election, not 8. Synenberg should have been prosecuted, not advanced to the general election.
You may be critical of Andrea Nelson Moore, but there are records on file with the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections that reveal Synenberg committed a misdemeanor campaign finance reporting law violation, and you're not calling for her to be held accountable for it. You're criticizing her opponent for something that may not even be a crime. Of course Armond Budish gave the Plain Dealer "this" story on Synenberg's opponent. Certain "relationships" should be obvious.
But you're not a credible journalist Mark, you're a racist political hack. There. I've said it. Mark Naymik is a despicable racist who only sees "ethics" when it comes to black politicians.
You're such a great investigative reporter. Where were you when Ed Fitzgerald was running for governor out of the county administration building? The governor's race was "partisan," which meant Fitzgerald violated the Hatch Act. Henry Gomez interviewed him about the governor's race while he was on county time. Not one word from you about a known federal violation of criminal laws by Fitzgerald. The crimes he committed in office are well-known. Theft. Falsification. Obstruction of official business. Obstruction of justice. Theft by deception. Dereliction of duty. How did such a great reporter miss all of these known crimes? You, Mark, are the one who doesn't have a clue.
You referenced "county corruption." Again, you're such a great reporter. Why wasn't it you who investigated and exposed Jimmy Dimora and Frank Russo? Why haven't you dogged Judge Peter Corrigan for being convicted of a DUI while still serving on the bench? Judges who commit crimes shouldn't hold an office where they sit in judgement of others. Why don't you hound this guy out of a job?
Why you still have a job with the Plain Dealer is only evidence of the newspaper's low editorial standards. It's garbage like this that drove your employers down to 4 measly days a week. Instead of hiring fresh new talent with a more balanced perspective on local news, editorial bosses kept the same distrustful hacks whose writing turned readers away.
The more you write the less of a reason I and thousands of others have to read, except for moments like this when I get to expose just how pathetically manipulative you are as an editorial hack Have a lousy day, Mark. I'll be checking in from time to time unless you block me. If you do, I'll just use another name.
