Gunter Was Told Of Potential Crimes And Did Nothing, Repeatedly

OCTOBER 28, 2010 6:57 AM
by PETE RANDALL · 0 COMMENTS[EDIT]

In September of 2000, Union County Commissioner Harold Cook (Republican) received a letter (see pdf here) from the law firm of Hulsey, Oliver and Mahar, LLP. Cook had asked for an audit of the Union County Tax Commissioner’s office. The audit found “four reportable conditions” including “$30,000 of funds collected prior to December 31, 1998, that remain undisbursed.” The attorneys claimed these undisbursed funds were an apparent violation of O.C.G.A. 48-5-141, and urged that Tax Commissioner J.W. Payne (Democrat) be approached about these matters immediately, and the District Attorney should be approached if the matter could not be resolved. The situation was not resolved and Enotah Judicial Circuit District Attorney (and current candidate for Court Of Appeals) Stan Gunter (then a Democrat) took no action. J.W. Payne is still the Union County Tax Commissioner.

As posted earlier, in 2004 more alleged wrongdoing in the Union County Tax Commissioner’s office came to light as Chris Bergen, then a Republican candidate for the position, ran newspaper ads showing copies of IOUs (see copies of the IOUs here) Payne had allegedly placed in the safe in his office to keep track of the money he allegedly loaned himself out of the County coffers.

Despite the newspaper ads showing IOUs and knowing about the 2000 audit detailing potential violations of State Law, Stan Gunter still did nothing and J.W. Payne remains the Union County Tax Commissioner.

Gunter’s term as District Attorney ends on December 31 and Republican District Attorney Jeff Langley will take office in January. Langley is already saying (see here and here) he intends to look into the alleged theft of over $65,000 by an employee of the Tax Commissioner’s office – yet another investigation of that office Stan Gunter did not launch.

And Stan Gunter wants to be on the Court Of Appeals?

JW got re-elected in 2008 without even a blink of the eye because nobody like to "rock the boat". JW was found in violation of election laws after election was over.
Stan the Man Gunter will be re-elected also. Will have the same thing happen to him after elections are over.
Deal will be elected Gubner of Georgia. Same thing will happen to him after the elections are over.
Only way to change this is for citizens to become involved in their government and make their voice be heard through their voting ballot.

It is past time for the corruption to stop in Union County. The county is becoming bigger and bigger with everyone subdividing their land and selling off. What did people expect when all of the new people got here? That they would all go along with the politics here?
I don't think so.
They got sold on land first and politics fell in after they have lived here for some time. They learned who is who and how the locals and politicians orchestrate.
I read someone years ago where someone said that the local blood lines will water down. The old ways will slowly die off and this county may stand a chance to become something more than what it is.
Instead of suiting and living up to certain posse standards, all will have a say.

This gives people who have never been heard, hope.

Just think of how these upper class would feel if they have to swallow their pride and be the one in line for those services!
That is the problem with them. They don't know what it feels like and they will not be representing the middle class or poor.
