DISCUSSION: FBI INVESTIGATION? HOW ABOUT A STARK COUNTY INVESTIGATION?
The STARK COUNTY POLITICAL REPORT (The Report) has learned that a Stark County investigation has been launched with respect to the female with whom Mayor William J. Healy, II is alleged to have had an inappropriate relationship with.
Healy adamantly denies the allegation and has, in fact, asked the FBI to investigate a number of anonymous letters which have surfaced making the allegation.
It is difficult to believe that Healy would be so audacious as to seize the initiative in asking for an investigation by a government entity unless he was certain that the results would exonerate him.
But The Report recognizes that many public officials have been known to vehemently posture innocence only to be found later to be culpable.
For the sake of Canton and Healy himself, The Report hopes this is not a case of "be careful what you ask for."
In any event, the investigative process needs to proceed with deliberate haste so that the city of Canton can move beyond the turmoil this situation brings with it so that city government can resume some semblance of normalcy.
Meanwhile, Cantonians and Stark Countians will just have to wait and see.
The Report is mystified as to why Stark County's only countywide newspaper has not dealt with this matter. But The Report is advised that The Rep will be posting a story tomorrow, January 28th.
