A few weeks ago, FrontBurner’s Collin County correspondent, Bill Baumbach, suffered a stroke. It seriously impaired his verbal communication, but with help he’s continued to maintain his Collin County Observer site.
Today was the first time he’s submitted an item for publication on FrontBurner. While his recovery still has a ways to go, he’s certainly not taking it easy on the powers that be in McKinney and Plano. Here’s his report:
The District Clerk, Harrah Kunkle, and six indicted clerks are using a duplicate set of books for employee time — commonly known as “the Blue Books.” This is the source of the charge against them for “falsifying official documents.”
The District Attorney, John Roach, is using exactly the same type of duplicate books as Kunkle’s, instead calling it “High-Five.” The same allegation – falsifying official documents – could potentially be applied to this program as well.
Now the DA is having to tell the court that the District Attorney’s office used a similar scenario as the District Clerk.
The District Attorney’s Office has recused itself, and will ask for a special prosecutor. The call for a special prosecutor will cause the case many months delay.
It’s now likely that Crigger will take office as any trial will take at least six months.
The DA screwed up their six cases. Idiots!
