*********************************************

NewsMakers: Victor Ortino

Challenger for Collier County sheriff.

Victor Ortino

Lytle: Do you have proof that (Sheriff Kevin Rambosk knew his staff was working during the workday on his 2008 campaign)?

Ortino: Do I have proof that he knew that this was going on?

Lytle: Yes.

Ortino: Put it this way, either he’s lying or he’s incompetent. If you don’t know that two people are — actually not two people, the entire jail — was blowing up balloons for a half a day on our taxpayer dollars, and they walked out with those ... out of the Sheriff’s Department.

You have two people that worked on his campaign fulltime for six months, OK? This is under sworn testimony. You had cake receipts that were purchased and turned in through the chain of command.

Lytle: Did you say a "cake" receipt?

Ortino: A cake receipt ...

Lytle: ... a cake receipt ...

Ortino: A cake receipt — $176 for sodas, cake and all that stuff. And he doesn’t know none of this is going on? So that tells me that he’s either incompetent or he’s lying.
