DA's name on letter raises questions in “pyramid” scheme
COOKEVILLE, Tenn. (April 21, 2003) – When Robert Clark went to his mailbox late last
month and saw “Bill Gibson” as the sender of the white envelope,
Sgt. Clark in Korea, 1992
“I recognized his name as the district
attorney general and thought it was going to be a jury summons notice or
something,” the 34-year-old former Army fuel systems and aircraft
maintenance sergeant recalled. Now, Clark and others wonder whether
the DA is using his office to endorse a pyramid scheme.

Putnam County Circuit
Court Clerk Lewis Coomer is a thief, and DA Gibson will even lie to protect
COOKEVILLE -- During
his first term as district attorney general, William E. Gibson has been
busted spending public money to pay his staff's professional taxes; spent
thousands of public dollars painting his name on the side of his office;
used public money to reprint state-prepared training manuals so that they
would bear his name.
Gibson publicly lashed out
at a judge who, other lawyers said, ruled properly in a case Gibson argued poorly
but then tried to cover up for his shortcomings.

poll: Putnam County Bar finds alleged
civil rights violator T. Michael O'Mara more qualified than the incumbent,
alleged civil rights violator William E. Gibson, to be district attorney

qualified, according to the lawyers. Now, let's see what the Board of Professional
Responsibility says about local
lawyers to help determine what weight to put on their opinion.
Attorney William E. Gibson pledges in a newspaper ad to give campaign advertising
money to help children -- er, we know you are not a rocket scientist, Billy
Boy, but wasn't that newspaper ad an advertisement? You get it, don't you?
Ad, advertisement, it's just a shortened version of the same word. ['Short'
means 'not long.' Like 'dumb' means 'not smart.'] Why didn't you
use some of that sign money to help children?
