Another Reason Why It's Called "Pot" County? UPDATE

It was reported today that Jeff TeKippe, an assistant Pottawattamie County prosecutor was abruptly fired from the county attorney's office because of some alleged mishandling of evidence in a drug case. Matt Wilber, county attorney said he'd have no comment beyond the fact that TeKippe was suspended on February 1 and fired Tuesday last, and that the DCI was on the case.

It is passing strange that TeKippe and Wilber were competitors for the Republican nomination for county attorney and that TeKippe lost in the primary and in the general election.

In contested county attorney races in our fair state, all the adherents of the ancien regime are expected to fall on their swords, and the fastest way to get fired is to get up in public and say "I'm thinking of running against you in the primary, boss."

Stay tuned....this has political overtones.
