Warning – Long post alert!
I didn’t think it would come to this, as desperate as John Lindsey has become to hold on to the power, position and praise of his office, he is now using paid Shills. What is a paid shill you might ask?
A shill, also called a plant or a stooge, is a person who publicly helps or gives credibility to a person or organization without disclosing that they have a close relationship with the person or organization.
Plant and stooge more commonly refer to a person who is secretly in league with another person or outside organization while pretending to be neutral or a part of the organization in which they are planted, such as a magician’s audience, a political party, or an intelligence organization (see double agent).
Shill – A person engaged in covert advertising. The shill attempts to spread buzz by personally endorsing the product in public forums with the pretense of sincerity, when in fact he is being paid for his services.

the Detective was going to meet with the Lindsey’s to retrieve the stolen signs and speak with Linda Lindsey. At that time, the Lindsey’s informed the Detective that they would no longer like to speak with him, and they told him he would have to speak with their criminal defense attorney.

RE: RJ Hamton – A little bird told me that the Oregon Department of Justice is seeking 2 years of jail time for for John Lindsey for: #1. Stealing the signs and #2. Admitting the crime in a public forum, the Albany Herald.
John Lindsey has already engaged a criminal defense lawyer, and for good reason
