Can't recall under Sate law as it exists, going to have to be torches aa, pitchforks and either ropes or tar and feathers.

Nolte has been promoting all the controversy at the behest of a developer who wants to regain control of Clay County.
Nolte's first contribution in 2014 was $5,000 from the developer. Millions of dollars in TIF and other incentives are at stake. Nolte's October 11, meeting featured a lecture on TIF from this developer. Nolte has been leading the effort to create controversy in order to discredit the other officeholders in the hope that the others can be easily defeated. Check the background of Nolte's first contributor and you will find convincing evidence of criminal activity. Note multiple linked arson fires in Clay and Jackson
County. Mikey Sanders corruptly declined to prosecute Nolte's patron for his involvement in the Schutte Lumber yard, $8 million arson fire in 2003. Developer also torched two of his own lumberyards and claimed $2 million in insurance losses. Are Nutle and Witless complicit after the fact?
