The RHATT Pack Watch
Today is Friday, September 28th, Day 156 of the Rhatt Pack Watch.
Welcome to White Springs; Florida’s dirty little secret. White Springs, quite possibly, the Home of the Most Corrupt Despotic Mayor in the history of the State of Florida. In fact, in a search of Municipal Officials Nationwide, it revealed no other despots in the entire United States. Gee White Springs, we have the most horrific and only Despot Mayor in the Nation.
Let’s look at exactly how White Springs got to this inauspicious moment. Actually it turned out to be very easy. Twice the Town Council followed the advice of the “Gang of Three” member Mindless “Splain it to me” Tanja, when she suggested the Town Council appoint Spencer Lofton to the Council to fill vacancies; first in 2010 to fill the unexpired term of Mayor McKire, and secondly in 2017, to fill the unexpired term of Councilwoman Miller. And when elections were held in April 2018, White Springs’ voters had an opportunity to choose three Council Members from a field of five candidates.
Three of the Candidates were associated with the Red-face Ratt and his “Gang of Three” including Sellout Willie, Suck-up Lofton and Arthur Natteal. The Ratt believed all three of his “Gang” would be elected and he would control a “Gang of Five”.
White Springs’ voters had other plans. There were two additional candidates, Councilman McKenzie and former Councilwoman Miller. Voters selected McKenzie, Miller and what they believed to be the lesser of three evils, Suck-up Lofton. Unfortunately, this left a slightly different “Gang of Three”, the Ratt, Mindless and Suck-up, in place.
At the Council’s Organizational meeting two days later, the Ratt with backing of Mindless, put Suck-up in as Mayor. Suck-up believed the title “Mayor” and his perception of the role “Supreme Being” were the same. WaLa, a DESPOT was born! Patterned after his idol, “Idi Amin Dada”, Mini Me Despot Lofty came into being.
“Mini Me Despot” Lofty didn’t have a clue. He had no concept of the meaning of public service. His view was that he was the “Despot of the Mountain” and he could do and say anything he wanted and he could treat everyone with utter contempt.
And when his “love interest”, Mindless, got into ethics troubles, Mini Me Despot Lofty threw Florida Statutes, regarding Public Records and Ethics, out of the window. He helped in the embezzlement of over $150,000. Mini Me Despot Lofty was a central character in the looting of $510,000 from the Local Option Fuel Tax revenues and has approved stealing another $300,000.
He played a leading role, along with the Ratt, in the Wastewater Rehabilitation delays that have led to White Springs needing to raise $720,000 plus interest to complete the project.
In addition, Mini Me Despot Lofty just approved buying another Town vehicle to give to the Ratt’s latest new “Boy-Toy”.
Oh yeah, and when any citizen of White Springs discovered all of his waste, misuse and theft of your money and tried to speak-up, Mini Me Despot Lofty moved to crush any opposition, have them manacled and removed from the premises by armed guards.
Like all of the world’s most notorious Despots, Mini Me Despot Lofty wasn’t and isn’t interested in and doesn’t understand a participatory democracy. He’s only interested in a suppressed and obedient”Audience”. Boy, Mini Me Despot Mayor Lofton, this must be a real honor to know that as Mayors go, you have been ranked with the most despicable despots of the world at the very bottom of the Mayors’ barrel.
White Springs, Mini Me Despot Lofty can be recalled in about 30 days. In the interim, call the FBI office in Jacksonville (904) 248-7000 with any information that you have concerning corruption in White Springs. And become and remained involved in White Springs’ governance.
