I started a post on the crazy shit Morgan said publicly in 2017 but it has become such a list that it is almost impossible to get it all out. Even in the face of disgrace, Morgan still tries to “get over”. The AG decided to withhold her opinion on Morgan’s slush fund until after the Governor’s decision. What does that mean? Well, it means its complicated. It means Morgan is not blameless. It means the AG doesn’t want the perception that her opinion will affect the Governor’s ruling. Either way, no one came out to say Morgan was in the clear. If that was the case, there would be no withholding that fact because it would be moot in relation to the Governor’s ruling.
Am I surprised that Bondi didn’t grow a set and do the right thing? Absolutely not. She has given Morgan a pass for so long that it is shameful. Every crime he commits is under their (AG & Governor Scott) auspices. They are facilitating every wrong done by Morgan. Dante Aligheri said it best, ” The darkest places in hell are reserved for those who remain their neutrality in times of moral crisis.”
While I get that it may be politically wise to withhold this decision, but the last year or more of Bondi being aware of Morgan’s antics and NOT taking action prior to being asked by the County Commission is the neutrality that reserves her place in hell. The longer a crime continues the more brazen the criminal gets. We see the dismantling of the county in the crime. Dreamland is a good example. Juvenile crime is representative of the criminality in the community. While crimes are most likely committed by younger populations, the younger the population and the more violent the crime (vs property crimes) is symptomatic of a growing violent crime base over all within that community.
Dreamland had kids with guns at New Years lock-in. That is a new low for the citizens of Escambia County. This shows the escalating severity of the crime in the area. That is the legacy of Morgan.
