I am concerned that after Ken Morrison soundly defeated Phil Fitzgerald in the Democratic primary that rumors are flying around that he and some of Phil’s little political operation had planned all along to win by having Morrison lose a residency lawsuit in district court.
I had heard this rumor before the primary more than once, but when I saw how different and anemic and pathetic Phil’s campaign was compared to his efforts in the past, I began to believe it.
Now I have heard the name C.T. “Rusty? Hight connected to this rumor. Now I am worried. All a person can hope for is fairness and being treated the same way anyone else would be, but now I have heard that Kenny could have to appear before District Judge Rusty Hight if there is a question about his residency. Now how fair would that be? With rumors about Hight and Fitzgerald being part of the same political operation, or at a minimum being members of the same Democratic Party for decades, my first reaction was that Hight would have to excuse himself and a visiting Judge would have to handle the case. But it has been brought to my attention that he did not step out of a case involving one of the people that writes for Liberty Dispatch despite evidence that any normal human being would be prejudice in the case. If Hight will not acknowledge his judgment could be influenced because his Father-in Law hates a defendant appearing before him and if Hight wants the public to believe he could be fair in sitting in judgment over someone who has publicly and aggressively opposed him and his politics, then it seems to me he would have no trouble in sitting in judgment over a case from which his political group need a certain outcome.
I hope these rumors are all nonsense, but even though I know you are a Republican I can tell you Kenny Morrison is a very smart, very likeable, very capable person that does not have the baggage that every other candidate will have to carry through the election season. He will be good for the county.
I am appealing to you to post this and to help make sure this race is fair and square even if it involves helping a Democrat.
