    While Steve Nodine deals with his legal troubles, the other two Mobile County Comissioners are trying to deal with the fallout. Both Merceria Ludgood and Mike Dean had been silent on the impeachment charges including using his county issued truck for personal reasons and purchasing alcohol, food, and fuel with his county issued credit card. issue. At the Mobile County pre-commission meeting, Commissioners Ludgood and Dean finally broke their silence. "Our process is when we submit, they have what I call an assumption of legitimacy. We have not had any reason to believe otherwise except within the content of the indictments. The question as to whether they're legitimate will be answered in courts," Ludgood said.../snip/.." He is cloaked with the presumption of innocence and that's what we operate on."

    John Pafenbach, county administrator refused to answer questions earlier this week about Nodine's spending habits.

    Ludgood said she has briefly spoken to Nodine while Dean said he hasn't spoken with the commissioner since the charges were handed up.

    NOTE: ChaCha's post aboves states he is living with friend & co-commissioner Mike Dean.

    It is noZme's opinion that a lot more is about to come to light; the good ol' boy network is alive & well in Alabama politics; & the citizenry should "clean house".

    To ChaCha: $80K salary would be a deal IF SN worked as hard at his duties for the county as he apparently worked on monkey business. But, figuring in his "expenses", not so much, huh? About murder #2, prayers for Ms Stevens' children. I hope they put the dirtbag under the jail.


    My question- What did she see in him? Downs was a pretty woman with a reported thriving career, he is---- ewwwww, not to mention married. Was she trying to dump him & the ego couldn't deal with rejection? Ummmm,"allegedly".

    Attorney: Nodine had nothing to with Downs death

    Neighbors have stated they saw Stephen Nodine's county-issued truck leave the scene that night, but Nodine's attorney Dennis Knizley says that doesn't mean his client did a thing. Knizley said to wait for all the facts.
    "They heard a shot and saw Mr. Nodine leaving," said Knizley. "Have we put all the facts together? I think that's critical. You're going to see during the case, but we're gonna find out what the facts are, as to when the gun shot was fired and who was where."

    5-20 http://www.fox10tv.com/dpp/news/came...to-authorities

    Camera hard drive given to authorities
    BAY MINETTE, Alabama (WALA) - The Baldwin County Sheriff's Office commented on the camera system seized at Downs' condominium complex. The day after the shooting, neighbors told FOX10 News the cameras were not working. But this week, Sheriff Huey Hoss Mack said those cameras were working.

    Right now, the hard drive is in the possession of the Baldwin County Sheriff's Office.
    Investigators confirm that there is video, but they are not saying whether Angel Downs' death was recorded.

    Investigators have said all along that Nodine is their number one suspect in the case. As of right now though, Nodine has not been charged with any crime in Baldwin County.

    Nodine Slime - He did the Crime

    This is what I know http://www.wkrg.com/alabama/article/...-2010_2-20-pm/

    Nodine is scrambling for bond. Early this AM owner of The Spot of Tea talked about being Nodines best friend.

    I know someone who lives right by Mike Dean and they said before Nodine was arrested that's where he was staying. (It's just hearsay)

    Last night he spent the night in jail http://www.wkrg.com/alabama/article/...2010_12-50-am/

    Here's AL.com take http://blog.al.com/live/2010/05/step...d_with_mu.html

    I also updated a post at Time's Up http://timesupblog.blogspot.com/2010...mobile-al.html it has lots of links to the whole story

    What did Angel see in Steve? He is very charismatic and a master manipulator. Just look at how he conducted business. I can't believe this guy ran on family values.

    I heard a rumor this isn't the 1st time he's had a mistress die on him. 15 years ago in West Palm Beach. Anyone know how to check on this? Steve worked for a radio station and was Pres of Jaycees.

    I also read Angel Downs had lived a very sheltered life prior to her 30's. She had heart and kidney disease and medication finally got it under control in her 30's. It's when it's said she began to live life.

    Freeman Jockish?! People were surprised he turned out to be a d--k?

    Murder case against Mobile County Commissioner Steve Nodine continues to build

    Old Radio friend Daniel McBryde talks about case Murder case against Mobile County Commissioner Steve Nodine continues to build take a look at some of his other posts on Nodine. He's quite forth coming about drug activity.

    Bail burden keeps Nodine behind bars "Nodine's bond is set at $500,000. Per orders from Baldwin County, $100,000 of that has to be corporate surety, meaning that it has to come from a bail bonding company. The other $400,000 is a property bond, like someone putting up their house."

    Crimesider CBS News: Stephen Nodine, Alabama County Commissioner, Charged in Alleged Mistress Angel Downs' Murder This includes some very beautiful photos of Angel Downs and her memorial in Gulf Shores.

    Resigns, New Federal Gun Charges and the Not So Secret Life of Steve Nodine

    Yesterday was a very interesting day.

    Different people have been asking Steve Nodine to resign from his County Commissioner job over the last week.

    The impeachment was going forward. They asked that Nodine's County Commissioner Atty. Erwin testify. He didn't want to and said he wouldn't answer questions unless a judge told him to - calling client-atty privileges.

    Although it was noted he had already told the media all about going to Nodine's home and getting guns. He said Nodine was a basket-case when he and Ross the other County Atty. showed up. The wife was very upset, Nodine was sobbing uncontrollably. Erwin said he took the guns to protect Nodine and his family. (My question was why not let the investigating officers do it? Why didn't they call them?)

    The impeachment judge told Erwin he had to testify and then all of a sudden Erwin calls for Nodine to resign and Nodine's lawyer Dennis Knizley walks across the room and hands in Nodines resignation. Then the other Commissioner, Mike Dean calls for Erwin's resignation stating Erwin only worked for Nodine and was now not needed.

    Erwin is up for Republican candidate for DA on Tues. He claims this is all political.

    Word is Nodines is still trying to raise bail but will probably sit in jail over the Memorial Day weekend. He sits in the maximum security wing and wears the symbolic black and white striped prison garb depicting his high risk status. Then last night the word was new Federal weapons charges are being brought against Nodine.

    I believe Nodine is a huge suicide risk, his whole persona has been built on his political life and I believe he is a person who has low esteem who relied on control, pills, women and power to make himself feel good. I would be very leery letting this man out of jail.

    I also question the impeachment charges just being dropped. Isn't a crime a crime? Shouldn't Nodine still be charged?

    And Fox10 News has begun a series looking into Steve Nodine's Not So Secret Life

    Why wouldn't Gulf Shore's DA Judy Newcomb want to search Nodine's home for letters or computer, emails, searches, etc?

    We've got one of the best computer and cell investigators in the US in Spanish Fort. Gus Dimitrelos, Alabama Computer Forensics Laboratory, Former Secret Service Agent. 251-625-0292 http://www.alcfl.org/

    I'm also willing to bet there maybe even more federal charges if they took a look at his computer.

    Nodine not getting out of jail US Marshalls has a Federal hold on him

    A comment from story on WKRG:
    Yes actually their were reports that it was her own weapon which was left at the scene that killed her…No doubt to try to make it look like a suicide. I do believe this was planned ahead of time…so makes sense that he wouldn’t use his own or County weapon. Her friends reported that she found him cleaning her gun prior to her killing and it made her uneasy…Suppose he held on to it as I doubt if she felt that threatened by him that she would have met him outside with her gun just in case…was probably the excuse to stop by and sure hope it was a text he sent her regarding that….

    If my memory serves me correctly, Angel had filed like 9 restraining orders against Nodine with the most recent being 6 months before she was killed. Officers were called and were present in some instances during his domestic rages but did not arrest him. I, too, hope he rots.
