Here’s Sen. Goodman in a written letter to the Governor on May 6th:
“I believe it is in the best interests of your Bexley neighbors – my constituents, the safety of our prison system and the future of a program you support, to suspend the inmate work program until all of the security concerns raised by the inspector general have been answered,” he wrote.
Here’s Goodman’s sworn testimony as a witness today:
“I did not say shut this down because I know much (Strickland) cares about it, how much he likes it and wants to support it. That was a reasonable response.”
Uh-oh. (Actually, I’m just having a little fun. The waiver of immunity that everyone is obsessing over doesn’t include immunity for perjury. So it doesn’t matter whether Goodman signed a waiver or not.)
