During the first of Mr. Steve O'Malley Ethics Hearings (May 24th), he continued to say he did not use support staff in his effort to campaign for the City Administrator referendum. We have released emails where Mr. O'Malley clearly told others of the Vote Yes PAC that they could leave materials with his secretary. Mr. O'Malley claims all his actions campaigning for the Vote Yes PAC were perfectly in line with his outlined job duties. If campaigning for an Administrator for the city of La Crosse, is part of his responsibility as County Administrator then why would he be careful not to use his staff? His staff is available to assist him in all official capacity to perform his job. Why would it be okay for him to use his county time to campaign for the referendum, but it not be okay for his staff to be involved or used? The logic falls apart. At 8:10 into the video Mr. O'Malley states again he didn't use County resources or support staff.
