Here’s The Scoop…BRING IT ON…..(UPDATED)….

The BTSTimes came out with a “News Flash “…last evening…

After a brief attack of “PROPAGANDA” charges ….against…. Futures Editors…Geesey/Brown….

M & M got down to business…..

BRING IT ON……MR BROWN!….

Boy that MacMillan and McIntee…sure like to roll the dice!…….YIKES!

Egging on Mark Brown…to go ahead…. if he hasn’t done so already…and make yet another Ethics Complaint!

Maybe they did not see what this writer recollects…from the June 6th 2008 Florida ethics hearing ?…

The transcript points out that McIntee was relaying information he received from Phillip Claypool the Executive Director/General Counsel …(the same Phillip Claypool that was interviewed by Reporter Judy Vik in the Pompano Pelican…and who responded to McIntee in a letter reprinted in this “News Flash”.)… that information he relied on was verbal not written….. incomplete…and open to interpretation….and one -sided by McIntee….

Mr Claypool was unable to add additional information…due to rules…of not allowing any new testimony to be introduced at this time in this hearing …. a lucky break for McIntee….

Although Commissioner Silverstone…had presented his questions in writing… it was found he too negated to supply the ethics counsel ……all the information required….as she stated in her response to the committee….

It was further stated by the ethics committee….that without all the information provided to them…… full disclosure…in writing…any preliminary finding could not be counted on as providing the correct determination….which was the case in these preliminary findings….prior to this hearing…

With all that in mind….

They DID find PROBABLE CAUSE for both McIntee and Silverstone…in regards to CONFLICT OF INTEREST with the VFD/ Commission……..with a decision to take no further action…due to the lack of “benefit “…. along with the the free pass… action of the Commission…. “the action by the Commission will serve to correct future conduct by the respondent”….

MEANING …”GO FORTH AND SIN NO MORE”…a quote in the Pompano Pelican from Mr. Claypool himself…previous scoop post…

The PARTIAL quote made to Mark Brown…from Ms Starling….put out on the BTSTimes “News Flash”……”Obviously, they are not taking the advice of the commission.”

The…FULL quote from the Mark Brown front page article in the Futures from Ms Starling…”Obviously they are not taking the advice of the commission.” ” What the commission said was ‘don’t do this again.’ I can’t imagine that it would be any more clear than that.”

BCbythesea…same as Mr Claypool himself said in the Pelican interview above…HMMMM…

In his letter of response to McIntee….Phillip Claypool states….

“I have spoken to Ms Starling about the quote. She told me she made the statement or one similar, after being advised by the report, Mr Brown, that you and Mr Silverstone were doing the same thing as before the Commission’s June 11th order, A FACTUAL PREDICATE WHICH YOU DISPUTE”….

Well. If Mark Brown chooses to call McIntee and Silverstone on it….the Ethics Committee should watch all the commission meetings which could be provided upon request…to make yet another determination….this time with full documented disclosure benefited by these recordings ….

It’s a huge gamble….

Will the ethics committee find PROBABLE CAUSE once again…leaving them no choice but to move forward with a full evidentiary hearing on the charges?….

Or will McIntee and Silverstone be vindicated….as McIntee stated publicly…”They can’t touch us…we haven’t gotten any money in a year?”…

Also left out of the BTSTimes “News Flash”…the rest of Ms Starling’s comments in the Futures Paper…..

“this report does not preclude somebody from filing another complaint or another action against them.”….WOW!

YOUR MOVE MR BROWN…..

more to come….
