Desperate moves from Mayor Ragsdale

WBIR reports that Knox County Mayor Mike Ragsdale has declared shenanigans as the reason he is being pursued by a renegade group of “troubled” Knox County Commissioners that used to be “young” a long time ago.

What do you think of Mayor Ragsdale’s letter to Knox County Commission?

From WBIR:

Ragsdale says he knows reasons behind Tyler Harber investigation

Knox County Mayor Mike Ragsdale says he will reveal the “real” reasons behind the push for an investigation of his office.

The Mayor’s office distributed a copy of a letter to all County Commissioners Monday in which he vehemently denies allegations that he had former employee Tyler Harber engage in improper activity.

He also says, “Commissioners Scott Moore, Lumpy Lambert and Ivan Harmon have shared with me and my staff the real reasons for calling for an investigation.”

The Mayor adds that, “My staff and I will be glad to share their comments with you individually or at the County Commission meeting.”

A spokesperson for the Mayor wouldn’t say what the reasons are, but did say “they aren’t honorable or ethical.”

The Mayor’s rebuttal comes after several commissioners requested an investigation into allegations of improper activity made by Harber in an article in the Halls Shopper.

It will take a two-thirds majority – or 13 commissioners voting in favor – for a full investigation to be launched.

    It’s too early to tell how this will unfold.

    It will be interesting to see if there is any corroborative evidence which supports Harber’s allegations.

    As for the letter, I don’t have a clue as to whether it is an honest recitation of the facts
    or a “fabrication.”

    I don’t want to convict Ragsdale without seeing the facts (like the media did with Richard Jewell), which is why an investigation should be informative.

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
