Total Recall: Losing an election was just the beginning for the embattled Lake County D.A.

I know Mr. Webber, and it's true, he is a lover of fun, but this latest effort by Mark is no joke.
This isn't the first recall effort against D.A. Schutt. A similar campaign was undertaken in 2010 by the then Community Service Officer of Lake County. The required amount signatures were gathered, but the State turned down that recall effort, claiming that some signatures were not from registered voters of the County. Alleged by several witnesses, these non voters were sent in by Schutt to derail his own recall.
Doesn't surprise in the least that Schutt would employ that tactic. If you have ever sat in the Lake Circuit Court during court you will witness a very abusive, power drunk individual, that being David Schutt. He is guilty of not only abusing his power as a D.A., but has been known to coerce witnesses into lying while on the stand, stacking the jury pool in favor of the prosecution and misrepresenting the law. He has a unnatural penchant for breaking up families, destroying local business and turning the other cheek in regards to prosecuting real criminals when it suits him.
The most appalling crimes of Schutt are of course, not as visible to the general public. For example: In 2008, the State was compelled to bring in a special prosecutor to convict a former clerk of Schutts office. The charge was embezzlement of victim compensation funds, your money taxpayers. It gets worse though, Schutt was fully aware of the embezzlement and quite possibly part of it. During the clerks trial, evidence was presented that showed Schutt was aware of the crime and took part in covering it up. He stood accused of accepting certain private favors of the sexual nature in exchange for looking the other way. Unfortunately this charge was dropped due to said evidence was technically, illegally gathered.
What this story also fails to mention is the fact that fifty percent of Lake County criminal convictions, that make their way to appeal court, are overturned, while the statewide average is two percent. Another factoid; since Schutt has been in office, he has indited over 4000 cases, this is over half of Lake County's population.
D.A. Schutt is bad for Lake County and bad for Oregon, Recall David Schutt, Lake County District Attorney.

Comments from one more criminal whos crimes were no dout everyone elses fault. Got to have someone to blame. You are describing the new D.A. exactly. Purposely leaving out evidence to get defendants prosecuted. And on and on. You people thing he is going to be the criminals friend....well I think his history will repeat itself. Schutt will get the last laugh. Talk to the criminals in the new D.A.s past. See how much they like him. Probably not much. Wake up out of your mary jane induced stupor!!

Poopoo, you seem to think the people of Lake County elected the new D.A. based on merit. While this may be true in some instances, the main reason was for the removal of Schutt.
Yes, we know that whomever becomes D.A. in the future, will be under the same pressure to target certain individuals, while providing a free pass to others. This is afforded because of certain individuals higher up in the community at large.
If you study your history you will find that Lake County was founded on these principles that Schutt practices and it is the same groups/families running things in Lake County today.
The D.A. before Schutt was run out of office because he wasn't aggressive enough. Schutt on the other hand was plenty aggressive enough, but careless and stupid, exposing the PTB that run the county. That in a nutshell is why he wasn't re-elected.
A lot has been said recently about the good ol' boys club and unfortunately most of it is true.

Well yeah....but coming from a former CIA spook, one should take it as a grain of salt. Seems to me if he was really acting independently, informing the world of this, he would of already been silenced. It gets far more bizarre then this, and is continually changing due to alternate timelines.
