Reader doesn’t believe former senator embezzled money

I am writing with regard to the article you printed last week with the big headline, “Jay Paul Gumm arrested for embezzlement.”

My instant reaction was, “I don’t believe it.” I did not mean that I don’t believe the charge was brought against him, but that I don’t believe Jay Paul embezzled any money. In this often-hard world, untrue and unjust accusations are often made. They are made in our daily lives against men, women and children, and they are made in the law.

I have spoken with a number of Bryan County residents whose reaction was the same as mine: “I don’t believe it.”

As the Durant Daily Democrat follows this story, I hope it will do its utmost to present both sides of the story. And I hope Jay Paul’s many friends will speak out day by day, and continue to say, “I don’t believe it.”
