His sexual orientation and/or alleged infidelity have nothing to do with his ability to serve as prosecuting attorney. While the public nature of his position does hold him to higher moral standards than the rest of us, I do not think infidelity and divorce fall into this category, as neither affect his ability to serve as prosecuting attorney. This is between he and his wife, not he and the community.

They have a code of ethics that they must abide by this clearly isnt within that code. It is and well should be an embarrassment to any man and woman who has ever practiced law.

The prosecuting attorney cannot get sexually involved with a victim or defendant in a case that he is prosecuting. It is a clear violation of Bar rules. He should step down in shame.

Yes, he should step down immediately. He has violated a code of ethics by getting involved with a much younger female witness. No wonder his wife filed for divorce.

Jay Purcell exposed one thing after another about all these creeps we elect. He exposes where Morley Swingle investigated his own wifes alleged hit and run, how he sells his books on the county web site, how he tried covering up a public official looking at soft porn on a governemnt computer. Instead of admitting what they did was wrong they painted purcell as a troublemaker who cant get along with any one. Years layer when we know all the other dirt like Judge Kamps ten plus DWIS where he spends weekends in another counties jail everyone is going to realize how truly corrupt the political machine is in this county and how they will destroy any one who stands up to them.

Before the sheep who think Purcell is bad and makes up all these conspiracy theories start to chime in watch this video that proves Morley Swingle is just one of the many corrupt self dealing people we continue to elect us. Here is the video

Yes he should resign, this is just one thing of many things he has done wrong. He will probably skate on this too and write a book about it.

I find it hard to believe that Swingle has put himself in this situation, but I know nothing of his personal life and nothing about his wife. For all we know they could both be very unhappy in their marriage. It would certainly appear that something is badly wrong, but that is their business. This is bad for all parties involved and has the making for a messy outcome if all is true that has been said. If the allegations are all true, I really do not see how Swingle could remain in office. It will be interesting to see how this all plays out.

I read the federal lawsuit filed by Josh Kezer's attorney for false imprisonment. Morley Swingle helped Bill Ferrell railroad an innocent man into prison. The "jailhouse snitches" who later recanted were in the Cape County jail.

The "snitches" received deals from Morley in exchange for their "help." It is all mentioned in the lawsuit.

Many think that adultery is a personal matter and no big deal, but time and time again it has been shown if a person compromises morality on the "little" things, they will also compromise on the "big" ones.

Character matters.

The you tube video has been removed due to Lane Thomasson making a claim of Copy rite infringement. I wonder what attorney gave her the advice to do that.

Yes, he should resign. But he won't, because he is too arrogant. If there is an investigation he will probably fight it longer than the Buerkle case will drag on. And don't forget that while he is fighting this he will be getting paid as the county prosecuter and also as counsel to the county commission. When is the next election, and will anyone run against him?
