Even Scott Harper agrees a Jim Dumm cut a deal
« on: January 14, 2022, 09:58:20 AM »
I heard Scott Harper on the radio this morning talking about the Jim Dumm case. Scott said a deal was cut to let Jim resign from the school board and now the case just went away. Georgetown is the place where corruption is swept under the rug.

Well that is exactly what I said before. We will never learn the real story about why he resigned and what deal was done to keep him from being prosecuted. If we had a real press in this county they would be all over this with freedom of information requests and all that.

If Scott is saying this publicly on the radio, he should publish it  on GAB News and the factual basis for his report.  Otherwise, it is idle speculation.  But, as a former prosecutor, I'd say that the sort of "deal" he describes simply  doesn't make much sense.  There is no connection between the allegation about taking money from Tara Hall and his resignation from the school board.  The school district had nothing at all to do with Tara Hall.  The school district was not the alleged "victim."  That direct relationship-- between the "victim" of  the "crime" itself -- is what  generally underlies a "deal" to dismiss charges (or, in this case, not press them since there has been no indictment).  Was there restitution, i.e., the money paid back to Tara Hall?  If so, by who?  Why?             

The FBI usually doesn't talk about "deals" or the outcome of any investigation it conducted when there has been no indictment.  Frankly, I don't understand.  That said, it would still surprise the hell out of me if after 50 years of hard work and dedication to troubled children and a long tenure on the school board, Jim Dumm would have risked his reputation and legacy in order to chisel a few thousand dollars from the charity he started, built up and managed for half a century.  It doesn't make sense.  Scott needs to clarify whatever he asserted and do so, if for  no other reason, in the interests of justice.  Nobody is helped when lingering doubts are  left hanging in the air, especially when they question the integrity, honesty or evenhandedness of the legal system.
