Mackiewicz walks

One of the side show events in the the Melendres contempt of court proceedings was the handling of charges that MCSO detective Brian Mackiewicz was padding his overtime. The Arizona Attorney General has declined to prosecute, citing insufficient evidence, so reports the Arizona Republic. Check out their article for details of the allegations involving Mackiewicz and his association with Mike Zullo in the “Seattle Operation” where the Sheriff’s Office paid money to an informant/con man in Seattle for information about an alleged plot involving the Department of Justice and a federal judge against Arpaio. Arpaio, for his part, denied that he was investigating Judge Snow.

    In this election season, local coverage of the Arpaio “Seattle Operation” has stepped up. One from CBS Channel 5, “Emails show Arpaio paid informant at least $120,000 for ‘bogus data'” is among them:

    “the process the MCSO followed followed in hiring and paying Montgomery was highly unusual….Critics argue that a simple Google search would have told MCSO that Montgomery had a history of questionable claims.”

    Tes from the Fogbow is featured prominently in Morgan Loew’s report. It is definitely worth a read and look.

    Mackiewicz’s cell phone got mysteriously wiped. Right …

    Doc: I hope you and your family are well and not affected by all the flooding.

    Tes did a great job. That CBS 5 story is the first time Arpaio has been asked on camera about the amount of money Arpaio gave to Montgomery and whether Arpaio was “duped” by Montgomery. Arpaio refused to answer and walked off like any other arrogant politician.

    The best part of the CBS 5 story is the mysterious picture of Arpaio meeting secretly in a motel room with Dennis Montgomery to discuss their plans. According to court transcripts that picture, which was listed as evidence, was obtained from Inspector ZooLow’s cell phone. Now there is some great faux cop work. Take pictures of your boss during a secret meeting. What a doofus.

    I have been told that Zullo recorded everything.

    I am in the part of South Carolina farthest from the Ocean, and as a result any storms have largely spent their fury by the time they get this far. Probably the only exception was Hurricane Hugo in 1989 a fast-moving storm that did reach Charlotte while still a tropical storm, but it missed us.

    I’m only about 70 miles north of midtown Manhattan, but hurricanes rarely do any significant damage here. We got some heavy rain during Hurricane Sandy but no wind damage and the power stayed on. 30 miles east of here it was much worse.
