The post Councilman Matheny was reacting to, How Cozy Are Councilman Zack Matheny and Gangster Rocco Scarfone? was posted on Monday, November 17, 2014. Zack sent his e-mail on the same day asking that the City of Greensboro foot the bill for Councilman Matheny to sue me. City Attorney Tom Carruthers advised Councilman Methany to pay for his own attorney if he wanted to sue me. Obviously Mr Carruthers knew the lawsuit would be a waste of taxpayers' money.
Zack also asked GPD Chief Holder if this was considered a death threat. I communicate regularly with Chief Holder and never once did she mention this to me, I've yet to talk with anyone from GPD nor have I been arrested. Obviously a month and a half later the Greensboro Police Department does not believe I was threatening Zack Matheny.
Councilman Matheny has attempted to use his position as a Greensboro City Council member to deny me my rights to free speech, he has violated my Constitutional Rights and the very Oath of Office he swore to protect.
Councilman Matheny is required by law to resign from office. End of discussion.
Update: From the North Carolina Statutes: Misconduct In Public Office
" § 14-230. Willfully failing to discharge duties.
If any clerk of any court of record, sheriff, magistrate, school board member, county commissioner, county surveyor, coroner, treasurer, or official of any of the State institutions, or of any county, city or town, shall willfully omit, neglect or refuse to discharge any of the duties of his office, for default whereof it is not elsewhere provided that he shall be indicted, he shall be guilty of a Class 1 misdemeanor. If it shall be proved that such officer, after his qualification, willfully and corruptly omitted, neglected or refused to discharge any of the duties of his office, or willfully and corruptly violated his oath of office according to the true intent and meaning thereof, such officer shall be guilty of misbehavior in office, and shall be punished by removal therefrom under the sentence of the court as a part of the punishment for the offense. (1901, c. 270, s. 2; Rev., s. 3592; C.S., s. 4384; 1943, c. 347; 1973, c. 108, s. 5; 1993, c. 539, s. 142; 1994, Ex. Sess., c. 24, s. 14(c); 2009-107, s. 1.)"
Do I need to explain it to you, Zack? You broke the law, you have to go.
