I've seen many cases of favortism, dating co-workers, inappropriate promotions and raises. It's a political thing and sometimes a sexual thing - it's like Carol Fouty getting thrown off the bench, she's not the only one of them guilty of breaking many laws/rules - same here. At least Mark does a good job as a prosecuter - HE EARNS his pay - give the devil his due - don't base his job on his personal life except prehaps for all the raises he gave his NEW WIFE - punish him by having him pay it back - don't hurt all his children to where he can't support them as he needs to..

Because he has kids he should be allowed to break the "laws/rules"? If he is charged with a crime against a child he should have to answer for it just like regular folks. No more special treatment for corrupt politicians. You think he'd let you get by with child abuse? Wake up
Totally frustrated

WTH??? Media has gone silent. Is this another example of a 'man' in power who is just going to get away with everything? SMH

Just saw the clip and googled to find Plants' ex-wife's statement. Please provide link if there is one. Gotta say it appears right now that Plants is the only one interested in politics. What would she gain from it? Will be interesting to see how this plays out and the following questions are answered:
Is she so dumb that she'd open a child abuse investigation without demonstrable evidence?
Is he so dumb that he'd make this sort of statement if he actually is innocent?
Are the police so dumb to open an investigation on their prosecutor and releasing it without a solid case?
Are the voters of Kanawha County so dumb to believe when someone brags over and over about great family values?
Time will provide these answers, I guess. I bet there will be at least 2 yes answers. My heart goes out to those kids and anyone who was considering getting help for abuse issues in their own home who sees the firestorm that will follow them from the Kanawha County law enforcement community.
Something just aint right here.

Mark Plants needs impeached. If he were a man of integrity and honor which we all know by now he isn't then he would do the righ thing and step down. Mark Plants will go down as the worst and most unethical Prosecutor Kanawha County has ever seen. I wonder when he is removed from office how long his new bride will hang in there?

I mean that sounds like a pretty valid question if you ask me. After he is removed he won't have the clout to help her or any of her friends get out of this and that and it'll just be here and him forever and ever checking one anothers e mails and looking over their shoulder everytime one is late getting home etc. She will no longer be married to a prosecuting attornet he will just be a regualar schmo with out any integrity.

You know what they say once a Cheater always a cheater.

If this would have been a charge brought up against me, my a** would be sitting in jail. What the hell is up with that? If there's proof and a case against him arrest his sorry a** already. I'm tired of leaders like him getting by with everything because of his name. He has robbed the tax payers of Kanawha County and they aren't doing sh*t about it. Makes me want to move out of this corrupt area! I'm beyond fed up!!!

Is there someone we can call or anything? I'm ready to go off on someone about this. We have a right to know what's going on, the findings, etc..,it's my money he illegally spent and of this child abuse thing is true also, then he is a criminal that is supposed to be upholding the law and prosecuting criminals!

When the truth comes out Mr or Mrs Supporter, will you publically apologize for the accusations that you have been trying to trash the ex wife for? I doubt it very highly, because you are either the new Mrs Plants or one of the other cronies in his office. Either way, you are NO BETTER then him. You make me physically ill!!

Sara your as dumb as he is . Asproud West Virginians we wont let even Mark Plants by with beating a child . And as for Ms Plants we will stand up for her she is a true victim. Ever notice how dumb Mark is ? No u wouldnt because u are too. Just because you and him are dont mean we all are. How much money did u embezzle from the county . When this all comes out people will throw rocks at u when they see u out. I can see it now Mark working at foot locker in the mall , black pants white and black shirt , laynard around his neck and happy as a lark. I almost forgot after his time in jail.
