Earl Mack BOMBSHELL: Chief Legal Counsel of Dept of Public Safety Trying to “Set Up” Tom Charles
After his meeting with Chief Legal Counsel of Dept. of Public Safety Josh Engle, Earl Mack- who is the Department Director at the Ohio Department of Homeland Security- was so disturbed that he wrote down the following notes:
March 8, 2010
At 12 noon I met with Josh at the Snipley building to travel to lunch. I drove my personal vehicle. I selected to eat at Banana Bean Cafe’ located at 340 Greenlawn Ave., in Columbus. We arrived somewhere around 12:20 PM.
As Josh and I talked on the way to the cafe’, we discussed several personal and work issues. As we traveled closer to the cafe’, Josh made reference to my truck having everything in it and said it probable records too. I responded, not today, in a jokingly manner.
Josh then made reference to the Governor’s Mansion. I stated there were security haps that were found with concerns of prisoner access. As Josh talked, he stated he knows some of the report is confidential, and would not want me to talk about it if I was uncomfortable. Josh then made reference to his having a secret clearance and it could be shared with him.
We then discussed a little about the Inspector General’s investigation and his request for the report. I advised Josh we could not release the report to him. I then voiced my concerns of why the IG was conducting an investigation anyway and that in m opinion it is a conflict of interest. Josh advised that the Governor’s office was allowing the IG to conduct the investigation and he agreed with me………
As I parked in the lot of the cafe’, Josh sad, “If you can leak the report to the IG I can set him up. If he leaks the report, you can sick the Feds on him.” I reiterated to Josh I cannot provide the report to the IG. He then made reference to how the IG was making it difficult for him. Josh made reference to how much his children meant to him and when he arrives home they help him to forget what is happening. We continued some small talk and personal family discussions.
I am most concern with what I perceived as Josh asking me to engage in a scheme to set the IG up with the release of the report to him.
When I returned to the office, I discussed my conversation with Josh with David and Dan. I do not know what I will do from this point.
If true, it’s a brilliant plan for a hyper-political administration like Governor Strickland’s to destroy an Inspector General who was once held by the Governor in the highest regard. The plan was to leak a report, and if Charles used and released it himself, he would have committee a serious crime. Never underestimate the ability of Democrats to be vicious.
