Insight into character in pardon plea for Gladys Burdette

About: JIM: The 1934 abduction of Lewis Coffey (and subsequent events) - II

By Ed Waggener

In discussing JIM's fascinating second installment of "The Abduction of Lewis Coffey," more than one person has noticed, in the next-to-the-last-paragraph, a sentence which gives tremendous insight into the character of Mr. Coffey, one of the most admired men of his time. Won't spoil it, but we hope you'll take time to read the installment from the start, and then watch for that revelation.

"The Coffey-Burdette-Violette-Marie saga seems to be Adair County's best-kept secret," JIM writes. We'd agree. - EW

(Part 2 of 3) - Mr. Coffey's dilemma in wilds of Southern Marion County. - showdown at Howard's Cafe in Louisville - incarceration and trial of Gladys Burdette - and much more. JIM writes of the aftermath of his bewildering experience north of Finley: After walking some three miles "through rough country," Mr. Coffey arrived at Finley where he found the couple had stopped and bought four gallons of gasoline. From there, he "called Columbia and told his partner, David Heskamp, of his plight and a machine was sent for him immediately."Click on headline for complete complete Part 2 of 3 installment.

Next earlier installment: The 1934 abduction of Lewis Coffey (and subsequent events)

By JIM (c)

According to Mr. Coffey, Burdette & Violette took back roads and creek beds from Coburg to the point they put him out of the car. Before releasing him, they took his money, a fountain pen, a watch, and "other valuables." Curiously, they returned the watch upon his request for them to do so.

B.J. Fudge: Answers his own question

Billy Joe Fudge writes:
To answer my own question, I see that it has to do with appointment by position rather voting status. I had always used "ex officio" interchangeably with "non-voting." I've expanded my horizons this morning and everyone will agree, I'm sure, that they could use much expanding! - Billy Joe Fudge
