Weirdness in Clark County

Since there is no evidence on view,  just allegations, it’s kinda hard to discuss today’s news with any intelligence.  Assuming (for now) the allegations are true…..there would still be some serious questions.

a.  Why is the FBI and Indiana State Police investigating the crime of prostitution in Louisville? 

Goliath would understand if the Public Corruption Group  (PWIG) found a Sheriff was trading ‘protection’ to conduct activity for sexual favors.  That’s public corruption.  But there isn’t a whiff of that on this case…so far.  If this winds up being a case of a sixty year old married man lying about being unfaithful with a prostitute…..Shackling the guy and dragging him to Indianapolis to stand before a Federal Judge seems a bit extreme. I guess there is …I don’t know…using police regalia to get a discount at the hotel that’s not true…that’s …what…misusing your regalia? But, it sounds kinda stupid.

b. Who is this mysterious woman who snags Sheriffs?

To me it’s kinda weird that apparently we have one woman who says she had an affair with Boone County Sheriff Ken Campbell for a few years and this same woman is reportedly the same woman who comes down and snags Rodden.  What exactly is her role?

Madame X  talked to the Indy star…but the Indy Star did not reveal her name…check it…”

The Star spoke recently to a woman who identified herself as a prostitute and who said that she and Campbell began a consensual sexual relationship in November 2010 that continued until a few months ago.

The 32-year-old woman insisted Campbell never paid for their sexual encounters, even though she typically charges $200 an hour. She did however, say that Campbell knew she was a prostitute before the relationship began.

“I met him in a shooting class,” she said. “I actually ended up using his (gun).”

The woman also said that on April 29, two detectives interviewed her about her relationship with Campbell. The interview took about three hours, she said.”

Here’s the link: http://www.indystar.com/story/news/crime/2014/06/19/boone-county-sheriff-resigns-amid-prostitution-probe/11015867/

So,  she talks to a  couple detectives April 29….and then, according to the indictment, somebody (a federal detective I guess) comes to talk to Rodden a couple weeks later….and he denies having anything to do with her.  (The indictment claims agents interviewed Rodden on May 27, 29 and June 5).  The USAG said this was a recent investigation only a couple months old.  So…who is “Madame X” ?

c.  Wonder why no charges yet against the Boone County Sheriff? It sounds like he actually had an ongoing relationship …or received steady sexual favors… with a hooker and ‘looked the other way’ for a considerable time.  That sounds like corruption of the sort PWIG should be after?   Sexual favors in return for immunity?  I dunno ….but that guy hasn’t been charged with anything. What’s up with that?  Why the different treatment?

********************************************************************

If this  turns out to be limited to just this incident….Goliath be pretty disgusted with Joe Hogsett and company.  As far as Can recall in Jeffersonville…we saw these guys prosecuting friendly well known and loved and HARMLESS Bookies and now Danny for this.  Guys….. thanks for protecting us from our bookies and Busting the Nookie racket. What’s next?  Indicting the Schimpffs for squashing pennies to make souvenirs? Hey …. that’s defacing US CURRENCY !!!

    You have to be kidding me. The Sheriff is the highest law enforcement officer in the County and you are ok with him lying to the FBI?? They were not going to tell his wife. He could have told them the truth and probably been ok. The other Sheriff has not been chRged most likely because he did not LIE about if. Friendly bookies…. What the heck. So you are also ok with people making thousands of $ without paying taxes just they are nice guys. You know if local law enforcement was policing out county the State and Feds would not have to. Coruption is corruption and there is more going on that others know about and yet still do nothing about it.

      Nope. It’s not good to lie to FBI. As for the thousands of dollars being made…. what article did YOU read Bob Hill?

      “…Policing out county the State and feds would not have to” ? Sorry don’t really know what the heck this is supposed to mean. This wasn’t just out of the county it was out of the state.

      There may be corruption …but this is not what it looks like.

        Just to be clear..BTW….You aren’t the real “Bob Hill” are you? You took a famous local writer’s name to use.

        Uhh, that was supposed to say “our” county. That would be the article that was in the evening news. Are not all Bob Hill’s the real Bob Hill. I am not saying that Danny is a big bad evil man, just that what he is alleged to have done is wrong and I just can’t understand people making light of what he is alleged to have done. Let’s all let this play out in court before we condem or condone what he did or did not do.

    Oh, I forgot to mention that he also tried to get her to destroy evidence, which just happened to be police gear that he gave her. Not what I expect from my Sheriff and I believe most others hold the same opinion.

    What the H? Nobody said this was “ok” …. All and Many know how to read but some don’t I guess.

    It’s the black/white, republican/democrat, good/evil mindset. There is no way that both parties might hold blame. Everyone has to take a side and condemn someone, but only one. If one side is wrong, the other side must be wrong. Other conclusions could make too many brains explode.

    The FBI was fishing; Rodden took the bait.

    That doesn’t make the FBI the saint and Rodden the devil.

    How many people cheering for the FBI in this case are also people on the right who want smaller government? Do they really want the $big$ gun$ investigating and prosecuting a $300 BJ?

    When I look around our country and see all of the real problems out there. I hate that the Feds are chasing down blow job violations. It seems that there must be something more urgent that needs their attention.

    Answers:

    A: It’s not about the crime or it’s seriousness, it’s about who he is and what he’s supposed to stand for….

    my guess he just got caught up in another investigation….wrong place at wrong time..

    B. What does it matter…. she’s an admitted prostitute. She has sex for money, with her johns that’s what prostitutes do….

    looks as if she might be a police informant as well…

    C. The Boone County sheriff was reportedly having consensual sex with the prostitute ….consensual sex is not a crime even with a prostitute…

    and he didn’t lie to the Feds about it he manned up, told the truth, admitted he was bopping the prostitute then resigned….appears he was getting for free what Rodden had to pay for…..

    I agree with Bob Hill. Harmless bookies my ass. Get a legitimate job like normal people. Live a life of leisure making millions off of suckers and pay no taxes. Sit around the country club all day having a mixed drink when their marks sweat and slave in a factory. They should have put the lowlifes in prison where they belong. Good for the feds.

    Obama Administration Spent Thousands On Strippers in Sting
    On Border Patrol Agent

    The case against a border patrol agent gets dismissed after his lawyer claims multi-agency corruption task force entrapped his client

    WASHINGTON — The Obama administration abandoned a corruption case against an Arizona border patrol agent after his attorney accused federal agents of entrapping his client, and spending federal dollars on strippers, plane tickets, and tickets to a Manny Pacquiao fight as part of their investigation.

    This is not about a Hooker. It’s about a high ranking law enforcement officer providing a civilian with a police badge and credentials. And yes, at this time the charge is an allegation. CIs lie all of the time in order to receive a reduced or dismissed charge. Many serious crimes are committed by those having bogus police credentials. Many child abductions are committed by criminals with badges and police IDs. The public has no idea what, if any, other activities this badge was used for. For all we know, the CI in this case may have organized crime connections. The hooker may simply collect police IDs for her trophy case? This case needs to play out in court before the public can pass judgment.

    Failed DEA Cartel Sting Results in Dead Driver, Damaged Truck

    When Craig Patty hired a new driver to operate one of the two trucks in his burgeoning fleet, he never expected that the man he hired had anything less that the pristine background that he saw on the job application. He wouldn’t have imagined that a government agency had falsified the criminal history report of his new employee so that they could use him as an informant.

    Danny Rodden isn’t special. I see no one, ever, speak up for all the victims of police rights violations to get an arrest, so why champion for the sheriff? He should’ve known how to hide it better and get a bj for less than 300$. Karma will get you, every time. You allow your officers to arrest with false or no evidence, and now you’re a criminal. And for those that are unaware, an indictment means they’ve been watching you commit crimes, while noting it, so when you’re arrested, you’re already caught.

    Just another example of another law enforcement officer who believes they are beyond the law. And in Clark County he would have been had not the feds stepped in.
