So let's get this straight. Mayor Healy is saying that his conversation with a "group" of folks at a recently celebrity function that touched on one of his arch-political-enemies; namely, Canton Councilman Greg Hawk, was private.
The STARK COUNTY POLITICAL REPORT (The Report/SCPR) has learned that Healy - in his self-described/labeled conversation, was recruiting people to go to Sheriff Tim Swanson with hearsay and maybe even double hearsay allegations.
Remember, William J. Healy, II just appropriated unto himself the mantle of "ethicist-in-chief" in his State of the City message only one week ago today.
Also remember that this is the same guy who went on television and interviewed with local media about the outrage he felt when anonymous sources accused him of having an inappropriate relationship with a 16 year old.
How about Councilman Hawk? Shouldn't he feel outraged at Healy? Indeed! And The Report hears he was and burned Healy's ears with choice words.
Healy doesn't have the politica/ethicall nerve to go to his own police department?
No, Healy won't do it. He doesn't want his neck on the line. But its okay for him to goad others to pass on hearsay and perhaps even double hearsay.
Healy's conversation was sooooooo private that he goes to area media to explain that it was private.
Can you believe this guy about anything?
And get this.
Healy proximate to telling the group - in private (according to Healy) - about his supposedly inside scoop, sat down with Sheriff Tim Swanson (how to you like them apples?) and didn't say a word.
Who would talk with Mayor William J. Healy, II, in private?
"Not I," said the Duck.
"Not I," said the Cat.
"Not I," said the Dog.
