The Ethics Department (it wasn't from the commission but from staff) sent me a rebuttal to Dusty Melton's criticism of the Ethics Department.
Since Ethics did not give me an opportunity to comment/question on ethics investigations that originated from this blog, I am not thrilled to give them the opportunity. They don't give me an opportunity to respond before they issue opinions. I told them if the rebuttal came directly from Joe Centorino head of ethics I would print it. And then I would have to print a second rebuttal from Dusty (this could go on for a long time). Anyway, I think it is dead in the water over here at Eye on Miami as I haven't gotten anything from Joe. It is still going on at Miami Today. They printed the rebuttal or are debating it. That is what happens when you deal with a real newspaper. They don't hold grudges.
Does the Commission itself even care what their staff does?
