Wow! Remember the Dan Johnson’s plagiarism saga and the public outcry for him to resign? Now we have another elected, a Harbor Commissioner named Aaron Newman, who pleads guilty to poaching and lies to California Fish and Wildlife Department on June 4, 2009 and then again in 2012! Considerably more egregious than plagiarism!
Newman is quoted as saying “I haven’t heard anything negative, so I don’t see how it’s going to affect me in any way,” “Just planning on keeping up the good work.” (ya like, lying your ass off)
From the TS: On Oct. 29, Newman pleaded guilty to three misdemeanor charges as part of an offer from the Humboldt County District Attorney’s Office. He pleaded to two violations of state Fish and Wildlife code for obtaining more than one set of hunting tags within one year and lying to a state agency under oath, as well as a code of regulations violation for misuse of abalone tags.
As part of the deal, the district attorney’s office dropped Newman’s two felony perjury charges and two misdemeanor charges. He was sentenced to three years probation, during which time he will be banned from recreational hunting and fishing anywhere in the United States.
Well let us be the first voice of outcry he hears:
“Aaron Newman you should resign immediately!”
