Now that the Spokane City Council has requested that Mayor Condon use his power under Garrity Vs New Jersey to compel those public employees of ours who are refusing to cooperate with the City Council Investigation to cooperate and give statements, I wonder what his next move will be?
This link will provide you with some fairly good background regarding Garrity vs New Jersey which has been law for a long time.
Just so you understand the Garrity Rule is used all the time at City Hall. If you review some of the past links, I have provided, you will find Garrity Warning documents like this.
It should be obvious to anyone reading this Blog that Mayor Condon is doing everything he can to obstruct the Public’s right to know. So now he has two choices do the proper and ethical thing by invoking Garrity, or continue to obstruct the ongoing investigation.
If he continues to obstruct the investigation Mayor Condon will have a heck of a time trying to square not invoking the Garrity Rule in light of the COPS/DOJ Report.
This should be interesting!
