Per Anita Lee’s story on yesterday’s sentencing of Joe Ziegler, Ziegler claimed he had nothing to do with the foundation but instead was the DMR lobbyist for the legislature. Trinity Walker begs to differ. I’m hoping some of you old DMR salts can help reconcile the difference.
As for Ziegler, other than what he told Judge Starrett yesterday in court that garnered Team Walker’s ire, mums the word as he’s letting his attorney Joe Sam Owens do all the talking:
After Joe Ziegler was sentenced, Stacey Pickering announced the investigation of DMR wrongdoing is over. Like Kerwin Cuevas, Ziegler got a good deal from the prosecutors when one considers how much money was diverted and then squandered on Bill Walker’s personal fleet of yachts.
File this one under there is no honor among thieves.
