Port O Call has called for an investigation of Deputy Mayor Cherie Kidd suggesting she committed perjury when she gave testimony, under oath, at the Ethics Committee hearing.
Brian Smith, acting Chief of Police for Port Angeles tuned the investigation over to the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department. Special Investigator Bob Gebo is assigned to the investigation. Anyone wishing to report to Detective Gebo concerning events of the February 2d city council meeting or Kidd’s testimony before the Ethics Committee should contact Gebo at his email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
More specifically, Kidd accused fellow council member, Lee Whetham of standing up and raising his hands in the air, palms upward, inciting the crowd to riot at the February 2d council meeting. This is the reason she gave the Ethics Committee for shutting down the council meeting before the end of the agenda.
Kidd testified Whetham’s actions created an unsafe climate at the council meeting and for that reason she abruptly ended the council meeting. Video of the meeting shows Whetham remained seated, covering his ears from Kidd’s incessant pounding of the gavel
Anyone in attendance at either of these meetings, or who watched the videos of the meetings and want to express their views to Investigator Gebo is encouraged to do so.
A video showing Whetham’s behavior during Kidd’s meltdown is available here:
