I'm re-posting the letter that I found in the Walton Sun newspaper. I think that people who stand up to the bullies are rare. I guess Suzanne's name wont be drug through the mud anymore.
I wish that people would go to the elections websitehttp://www.voterfocus.com/ws/WScandnew/candidate_pr.php?c=walton and look at the people who is donating to whom. Some under this investigation cloud are supporting other candidates. Don't your friends tell a lot about people!!

The rumored FBI investigation into suspected corruption in Walton County is now a confirmed fact. At long last, a credible law enforcement agency is publicly discharging its duty to investigate alleged wrongdoing by public officials and private individuals doing public business with those officials.
Private citizens, principally Suzanne Harris, have been voluntarily bearing this burden in the absence of official investigation. That she has not only defended the public interest at considerable personal expense for several years is now known to be only a part of the role she has played in fighting for honest, transparent government.
She is now confirmed as working with the FBI in turning up evidence clearly indicative of at best incompetent governance by officials acting, according to the county's own consultants, in several instances in violation of the law and in more instances in violation of responsible business practices.
Whether there has been evil done remains to be shown, but there has been no effective effort by some of our officials and others to avoid the appearance of evil. Rather, there have been too many occasions where an arrogant disdain of the public and its interests have been displayed, all to the detriment of Walton County.
There is a substantial difference between arrogance and criminality, and it's in the best interests of all concerned, both those being investigated and the public at large, that these suspicions be confirmed or denied, and quickly so.
If the suspicions are found true, we need swift and appropriate punishment for any and all wrongdoing. If they are found false, an equally swift and appropriate clearance should be forthcoming.
Walton County has labored for too long with a cloud hanging over its County Commission and its actions. It is time for justice to be served and the cloud lifted, following which our BCC badly needs a reformation in its business and personnel practices. We cannot afford for the present circus to continue.
