What exactly did we lose? Simply put - an appeal to regain lost funds in a legal battle that we should not have had to spend.
But it's not over until Stoffa sings, and that hasn't happened yet. Stoffa listened to, or conspired with Ron Angle to hurt the very people they were supposed to be serving. And for that reason we will continue our quest to make them pay for the injustices they/he have forced upon us.
Stoffa better understand, it appears that he may be on his own now. Which simply means that if anyone can serve time next to Bubba for misappropriating tax dollars - it's him...all by himself. Angle again has been crafty enough to let someone else hang for his doings, but not so fast...perhaps he will get tripped up on one of his many other legal issues that will grant him space next to his buddy Stoffa, next to his buddy Bubba.
