Arp Not Guilty, Kind Of
|The long awaited outcome of
the Doyle Arp investigation is over. Guess what, Arp did bad, but not
really, but kind of, but it's been too long, bla, bla bla. After reading
the report of the special prosecutor/investigator,
Dunavant, it's kind of hard to tell if he was investigating crimes or
trying to sell property in Rarity Bay.
According to Mr. Dunavant, at the end of his more than 10 month investigation, he found "there is not a reasonable likelihood of conviction" against anyone but he did make "an onsite visit to view the Rarity Bay development property in question, and found it to be a stunningly beautiful and impressive community" "with picturesque views of the lake and the Smoky Mountains." His words not mine.
The outcome of the investigation is disappointing but hardly surprising. You can read the report yourself and make your own decision about the investigation but a couple of clichés come to mind for me. Lipstick On A Pig, Making Chicken Salad from Chicken poop, lemonade from lemons.
