Just What's Going On With Florida's Department Of Transportation Besides Fixing Tickets? Is There A Conspiracy, And How Far Up Does It Go?
We know this is quick, even for us, but we wanted you to be aware of just what’s going on relating to the presumed ticket fix we mentioned last week. This seems to have gotten out of hand, so the only way to tell you is….well….to tell you and all of you can tell us what you believe is going on!
Just prior to 2/11/14 it is believed that Mr. Mercer made his contact(s). ON 2/11/14 the Osceola Clerk of Courts received contact from Sgt. Abrahanson of the Osceola Sheriff’s Office and stated that he knew the ticket was going to be dismissed but he needed to know when the dismissal was done so he could notify his Lieutenant. We have learned that the TEO (Toll Enforcement Officer) who issued the ticket and refused to remove his name from it has quit his position, two weeks earlier than his planned retirement, because of the undue stress this ticket has caused. Two toher locally assigned TEOs have refused to dismiss the citation, and the issuing officer has been told to stay away from Osceola’s courthouse on Tuesday, March 4th, when the ticket holder is scheduled to have her hearing before a judge or hearing officer. Now, because of the local officers’ refusal to dismiss the ticket, FDOT is now having another TEO, assigned to the MIAMI area to dismiss the citation, even though he had absolutely NO KNOWLEDGE of the violation issued, only because he’s, what we’ve heard, a “yes sir” man. We’re also told the officer’s name is Derrick Walsh. In addition to him being brought up, the ASSistant General Counsel for the FDOT, Frank Starr, will be present as will the person who originally began this “ticket fix", Diane Gutierrez-Scaccetti, allegedlt the Executive Director of the Florida Turnpike Enterprises. WHY is the State of Florida spending so much time and expense over this citation? WHO is the recipient of the citation, ERICA GEORGE and what is her connection to Gutierrez-Scaccetti? Also, WHY would three (3) good officers refuse to dismiss a citation if they had no reason other than it’s just another citation? This is now STINKING to the high heavens and if this case is heard tomorrow, in Osceola’s Courthouse, the pressure will be on the person deciding the outcome of this citation, and we hope that person trying the citation will ask WHERE is the citation issuer? WHY was he ORDERED TO STAY AWAY?
It is our lowly opinion that a crime may be happening right under our noses at the Osceola County Courthouse. It may involve the alleged executive director, the assistant general counsel, and one TEO from Miami, and a slew of others! Okay, since we have no legal training, we’ll ask the question….IS THIS A CONSPIRACY to defraud the State of Florida of the fine normally associated with the citation? We would also like to know why the FDOT Inspector General’s Office quickly dropped the idea of investigating this ticket fix. Can the conspiracy go as high as the Inspector General’s Office? Could it go even higher? The Vice Governor, or even the Governor himself? We could go on about this, but the most serious question is why all this expense and work to fix a citation issued to a FORMER political pal of New Jersey Governor Christie? Does someone owe someone a favor?
We will keep you posted!
.Just in! The case will be heard in Room 3202 at 10 A.M. tomorrow. EVERYONE is invited to attend and see how the State works to get a ticket dismissed using an officer (TEO) who has absolutely nothing to do with this citation!
