On Tuesday October 9th 2012 The Ocala Star Banner writer Bill Thompson wrote and article entitled State Attorney Brad King pans Blair's investigative skills.

On the day the Marion County Republican Executive Committee was to vote on applicants to replace candidate Dan Kuhn the 5th Circuit State Attorney made these remarks about the runner up to Kuhn in ht August 14th primary – obviously in an effort to influence the outcome of their decision. This is a violation of Fl Statute 104.31 (a first degree misdemeanor)

How can the prosecutor of the fifth circuit of Florida plead ignorance to this law? He Can’t but he will!

State Attorney Brad King said he was troubled that some criminal investigations managed by Blair, the former head of the major crimes unit, had holes that risked prosecuting suspects who could have been innocent, or letting the guilty go free.

King said Blair mishandled "several" cases but could not give a definite number. But he said it occurred often enough that he went to Sheriff Ed Dean with his concerns.

"It was disconcerting to me that we were not being told the facts. We had to go back constantly and find out what we're being told was not actually being said," King said. "It really concerned me." "That attitude and method of doing business flows down hill," King added.

For example, King recalled the 2006 fatal shootings of Santa Fe College students Amber Peck and her friend, John Parker, in the Ocala National Forest.

Investigators, led by Blair, focused on Peck's boyfriend as the culprit, King said. They would not sweep the crime scene for bullet casings.

The FBI later intervened — partly because the county's equipment would not work — and found the shells that helped tie Leo Boatman, a drifter from Largo, to the slayings.

King recalled another case in which a man and his girlfriend were shot after returning home from a night out. He said Blair immediately developed an erroneous theory that the man shot his girlfriend dead then turned the gun on himself, even though his wounds and other evidence at the scene strongly suggested that the couple was gunned down by an intruder.
"It was a long time before we could get them off that line (of reasoning)," King said.

In these select cases, King described a process where the investigators crafted a theory of what might have happened and then hunted for evidence to support it, instead of looking at the evidence before them.

At points along the way, when things didn't add up or if lawyers for the suspects offered contradictory facts, King said his staff had to review witness statements, videotaped interviews with suspects and other materials to plug the gaps.
The issue arises as Blair is positioned to be the new Republican nominee for sheriff.

Tonight, the Marion County Republican Executive Committee will hear from Blair and 10 other Republicans who want to be Kuhn's replacement in the Nov. 6 election.

Whoever is chosen will take on Constitution Party candidate Bernie DeCastro.

King, a Republican, had endorsed Kuhn in the primary contest. Kuhn, a former prosecutor, had also worked for King for several years.

King said if Blair becomes the nominee, and eventually sheriff, he could work around their past differences. For one thing, Blair would not bring the cases himself.

Secondly, King said his office would have to "double" its vigilance in handling the cases that do come forward. Beyond how individual cases might be affected, King worried about a broader loss of respect for the criminal justice system.

"That's why I'm very particular about the cases I bring. We don't want to go forward with a case that can't be proven against somebody who was probably innocent," King said.
he s above the law

104.31 Political activities of state, county, and municipal officers and employees.—

(1) No officer or employee of the state, or of any county or municipality thereof, except as hereinafter exempted from provisions hereof, shall:

(a) Use his or her official authority or influence for the purpose of interfering with an election or a nomination of office or coercing or influencing another person’s vote or affecting the result thereof.

Other parts of this statute was not printed because they have no bearing on the crime commited!

Bad King has been abusing his power as State Attorney for years. The good old boy system is alive and thriving in Marion County, and Brad King is in the thick of it. His past employment by the MCSO is a clear conflict of interest with his duties as State Attorney. He colludes with the sheriff's department to suppress and obscure substantial evidence of crimes committed by certain developers operating illicitly in Marion County, and such actions constitute prosecutorial misconduct. Denying citizens equal protection under the law, allowing their civil rights to be violated and substantial economic crimes to be committed year after year, while he stands by and does nothing, constitutes malfeasance of office! Unfortunately, Gov. Rick Scott is in on the collusion. They are all "owned" by the monied builder/developer lobby which contributes hundreds of thousands of dollars to these Republican officeholders. Sound corrupt? You bet it is! Word is getting around the country about the corrupt state and county governments in Florida, and sensible folks are avoiding this state. The irony is that OUR tax dollars pay these laggards' salaries.

You are so right. We believe that is why Brad King knowing committed a crime to try and stop the REC from selecting Chris Blair to replace Kuhn.

By now a lot of people have connected the dots on the criminals and as you say the word is out nationwide on Central Florida's culture of corruption. Educating people so that don;t fall into this trap is a good thing but for the people that can not or do not want to leave here we must stand tall and demand justice. Every county in the 5th circuit has some degree of good old boy corruption. Lake County is probably the worst. The villages developer who thinks he runs everything around here has give Romney almost Two million bucks. That will buy a lot of over looking of these government organized criminals. No matter what nothing is forever and their games are going to come to and end legally someday.

Seems we just can't find a Marion Sheriff that's degenerated enough to please Brad King like the one they have in Tavares. HomoPedophile. Well known homo employee relationships. Physical abuse of the public at large, employees and inmates. Missing money. Protecting the rapist of five little at his Green Isle Boyr Ranch. Everything is just wonderful in Lake County no matter how they ignore the laws but everything at Marion SO is under daily investigations. Go figure.

Mr Brad King claims to be worried about Chris Blair being sheriff. Mr King aided and abetted his friend lake sheriff Borders a well known homo pervert in covering up the rapes of these five little boys because the rapist was reportedly a special friend of the sheriff. So Mr King who is more honorable someone like you or someone like Chris Blair? We know that answer.

We think thats your problem you can't control an honest man like Chris Blair but you can control a pervert like Gary Borders who likes little boys!
So you want every county in your 5th circuit to have a member of the scum of the earth like you for their sheriff.

How does people get away with stuff like this? Nobody cares until its their kids!

just wondering

United States

#13 Nov 22, 2012
Is the people of Marion County going to allow Brad King to get away with violating FS 104.31 trying to stop the Republicans from choosing Chris Blair to replace Dan Kuhn who use to work for Brad King and who King endorsed on the mail outs?(also a violation of FS 104.31)

Now Brad King is leading a phoney FDLE investigation into Chris Blair's campaign finances or something. These organized criminals Brad King and his butties are scared to death of an honest sheriff. No wonder they sure as hell don't have one in any of the other FOUR Counties that Brad ZKing manipulates!

We need this billionaire guy with the blimp around here to get these crooks messing with our new sherff in line. Brad King is scared Chris Blair will have his sorry butt in the Marion County jail where it belongs so he's got to figure out a way to get rid of him.

When is all this BS that Brad King pulled on our newly elected sheriff Chris Blair going to come to an end so we can finally see who they are going to let be our sheriff?

They are trying to either find something on him to hold over his head so they can control him or somethng they can claim is bad enough to get rid of him like they do the rest of the 5th circuit.

Brad King endorsed Dan Kuhn and wanted him for sure because he knew he could control him. Whne that blew up Brad King violated FL Stature 104.31 by publicly trying to enfluence the ourcome of an appointment or an election.

Blair won't win with these goons, if they can't control him they will get rid of him one way or another. He'd probably be better off if Brad King made DeCastro the sheriff at least they are two of a kind!

Let's see now that SA Brad King violated FS 104.31 by endorsing Dan Kuhn for sheriff on his flier mailouts. Then he investigated rumors started by Kuhn's suporters concerning Chris Blairs political campaign finances and found nothing wrong. Then when his buddie Kuhn had to drop out of the race he violated FS 104.31 again with his comments to the Star Blunder aimed at influencing the Marion REC to chose someone other than Chris Blair to replace Dan Kuhn on the Repubican ticket.

When all of that failed then someone phoned in an anonymous complaint with details on something regardin Chris Blair that cause Sheriff Dean to ask FDLE to investigate it.

Now the criminal Brad King masquerading as the state attorney has asked the dumb governor to appoint the Alachua 8th District State Attorney to take over the case to avoid a conflict of interest.

Brad King and his corrupt friends are scared to death of Chris Blair because they can't own him or scare him. Honesty and integrity scare these criminals to death.

We can only hope that the 8th Circuit SA is not as corrupt as Brad King and not in the same culture of corruption as King and his friends. In todays Blunder they are now extending the Blair investigation time limit. They won't be happy until they find something on Blair to keep him out of office.

If Marion county residents loses Chris Blair as our next sheriff governor Scott will apoint who ever these local criminals tell him to appoint. Marion county will never be the same again.
why

United States

#17 Dec 7, 2012
State Attorney Brad King assasinates our newly elected sheriff Chris Blair but he covers up for the sexual and other crimes of his friend the Lake County Sheriff. This makes no sense. It appears he only wants to control who runs our sheriff office.

Why should the people of Marion County be subjected to State Attorney abuse of power? Are we just going to roll over and play dead and let this corrupt politician have his way in selecting our sheriff? We hope not!

Why

United States

#18 Dec 8, 2012
If Brad King is so concerned about our New Sheriff Chris Blair when then did he conspire with the Lake County Sheriff Borders to cover up all these crimes over the years at Borders little boys ranch called the Green Isle Boys Ranch?

http://ebookbrowse.com/green-isle-boys-ranch-...

Sheriff Borders history of playing with the little boys goes all the way back to Osceola County in 1980.

http://docsfiles.com/view.php... isle&count=

This should make people wonder if Brad King really cares about whether Blair will be a good, honest, noral sheriff or a sheriff that Brad King can control. Obviously there is real problems with this Lake Sheriff who also now wants his own juvenile county jail like we have here in Ocala. A pedophile sheriff running a juvenile jail should concern state attorney Brad King a lot more than anything he has accused Chris Blair of. If it don't there is somethng seriously wrong with Brad King!
huh

#19 Dec 8, 2012
now the blunder says this morning that the FDLE is going to let Chris Blair start his transition but they have moved into a new phase of investigating him. what kind of BS is this? maybe hes not crooked and sick enough to suit King and his butties. maybe they dont like Blair cause he dont have his own boys ranch. but the did say this sicko pos in lake county is gong to get his on kiddie jail and learn how to run it from the marion county people. looks like from these links he already been there and done that
