Some of you may remember the “vast white wing” conspiracy against Mayor Herenton that came out last June. If you don’t remember it, good for you. It seems, aside from some free publicity, that it was a non-event. Now, 9 months later, I’m left wondering how this baby’s gonna come out.
According to today’s Commercial Appeal, the independent prosecutor on the case says Nick Clark did nothing illegal. That’s hardly a ringing endorsement, but it doesn’t bode well for the accusations set forth by the Mayor and Ms.Smith.
Further, the article notes that political martyr and subject of ire from nearly every corner of the political spectrum, Richard Fields. From the article:
Also on Friday, Fields’ attorney, Randy Pierce, said, “I’ve been in touch with Baugh the last few days and I’m left feeling positive about it as far as (Fields) is concerned. My sense is we’re bringing this thing to a conclusion and I feel positive about it.”
My question is, are we ever really gonna know what happened with this thing or is it going to be swept away and forgotten? At this point, if Ms. Smith played the Mayor, we have a right to know. If there was a plot of some sort, we have a right to know. If this was just some silly event that was hatched up for political gain, we have a right to know.
I guess we’ll have to wait and see how it plays out, but right now, looks like we got played.
