Attention Knox County: Bend your knee to the will of the Great Leader!Knox County Commission Chairman Scott Moore is being accused by Knox County Mayor Mike Ragsdale of "backpedaling" on his support for Ragsdale's dictatorial designs on Knox County Government since Moore seems to have changed his tune on Ragsdale's notion of how the term-limited Commissioners should be replaced. Commissioner John Schmid (a Ragsdale lackey) has accused Moore of "falling under the influence" of Sheriff Tim Hutchison.
Let us be clear what this is about: Ragsdale hates Hutchison because he knows that Hutchison is accutely aware, possibly more than anyone else, of just how much of a crook Mike Ragsdale is. "Falling under the influence" of Hutchison" may mean that Hutchison has talked to Moore or other Commissioners about the evidence against Ragsdale in the Harber Affair, which he has been investigating for a very long time. Without giving too many details (and thus compromising the investigation), Hutchison may have tried to explain how serious the situation is. Fortunately for Ragsdale, Knox County D.A. Randy Nichols is a weakling who acts primarily as a lapdog for Ragsdale in this sort of situation.
With Hutchison's departure, Ragsdale is hoping to get out from under the microscope of the Harber Affair-he is hoping that it will go away. Those who are "under the influence of Huchison" are simply those who refuse to do Mike Ragsdale's bidding about appointing Commissioners or anything else. It is the latest punchline of the pro-Ragsdale crowd for those who refuse to bend to the will of the Great Leader.
