Glasscock contacts ABI, FBI on e-mails

By Sheryl Marsh 340-2437

The newest development in the Morgan County e-mail scandal is County Commission Chairman John Glasscock writing letters to the Alabama Bureau of Investigation and the FBI.

He wrote identical letters to the Alabama Department of Public Safety and the FBI. He attached a resolution the commission adopted Feb. 27 authorizing him to report computer irregularities to the ABI and the FBI; and asked for an investigation.

Requests to ABI go through public safety.

Glasscock's letters to both agencies state, "We request your expert assistance as there appears to be have been e-mail irregularities on the county computer system."

The letters are dated March 2 and were mailed to FBI officials in Birmingham and public safety officials in Montgomery.

Glasscock said at the Feb. 27 commission meeting that he was calling on the ABI and FBI to restore integrity to county government.

The e-mail scandal broke after a television reporter aired an e-mail of naked women that Glasscock received and forwarded to others.

Glasscock received the sexually charged e-mail from the county's human resources director. Glasscock was the director's immediate supervisor.

Before launching an investigation through a Huntsville law firm, the commission fired the director.

Glasscock is an elected official and the commission does not have the power to remove him from public office.
