Two separate oppponents of Republican Hamilton County prosecutor candidate (and Carl Brizzi chief trial deputy) David Wyser allege that Wyser doesn't play nice.
Lee Buckingham, a current Hamilton County deputy prosecutor who is running against Wyser, alleged that Wyser told him if he ran and lost, he'd lose his job. When asked about his comments, Wyser used the "personnel matter" cover to refuse comment.
Steve Stoez, a Hamilton County who dropped out of the race, said Brizzi spokesman Mario Massillamany called him and told him that if he stayed in, he'd have a hard time getting plea deals from Wyser. Unfortunately for Mario (who resigned from Brizzi's office after being arrested for a DUI), Stoesz taped him. Now Mario claims he wasn't instructed by Wyser and that his remark was meant as a joke.
I'm sure the tape will tell the tale (anybody heard it yet?), but even without the tape, we can all agree that Brizzi's associates have a strange sense of humor.
