UPDATE: 7:22 A.M. – Gov. Rick Scott has suspended Commissioner Nick Nicholson.

HERNANDO – In a surprise turn of events, the embattled Hernando County Commissioner Nick Nicholson sends a request to Gov. Rick Scott, asking that he temporarily suspend him.

In a statement Nicholson Writes:

Dear Governor Scott:

In lite of my recent arrest and subsequent charges and until such time as a final decision is reached as to the disposition of my being a member of the Hernando County Board of County Commissioners, I feel compelled to request an immediate temporary suspension from my duties as a County Commissioner.

I was involved in circumstances that have unduly caused embarrassment to my loved ones, my friends and colleagues and my community. In addition, I also feel you should know that I have already started serious counseling and am currently under the care of a Doctor.

In short, until the issues are resolved, I do not wish to subject my beloved family, friends and Hernando County Residents to the excruciating shame of the accusation and charges. Pease Know that I remain totally devoted to the “good” of Hernando County and the State of Florida and look forward to hearing from you at t your earliest convenience.

Sincerely yours,

Nicholas Nicholson

The Governor’s Office has yet to respond.

We have been unable to reach Nicholson for comment.

We will bring more on this story as it develops.

  • So let me get this straight. He was arrested on alleged charges. I know one is innocent until proved guilty. yet, He writes to the Governor to request a TEMPORARY leave of his duties until the case is dismissed. This is paramount to taking a vacation, and that he feels if he is not charged,or the case dismissed, he should be able to come back to be OUR Commissioner. Give me a break. Does he think we were born yesterday? What a slap in the face to the TAXPAYERS of Hernando. He needs to go, and the Governor should dismiss his request, and have the guts to release him, NOW!!!

  • This is definitely a Blaze Ingoglia move. Fire him, too. Sick f*cks. Republicans know there time is up!!!!!!!

    • Pretty sure this doesn’t have anything to do with being a Republican. What this has to do with is individuals Moral Compass…Remember the blue dress.It is none of our business what a person does on their own time. It is our business when the actions affect the community. A whorehouse and junkies moving into a neighborhood affect us all. They take away valuable community resources, devalue neighboring properties.

      I doubt this time his I forgot and made a mistake is going to fly. The sad thing is he is not taking the high road. The sadder thing is the neighbors still have a junkie prostitute in the neighborhood and the police didn’t do a thing about it.

      • Isn’t that just the Republican way?

        I’ll punish the hell out of you.

        But I get mercy!

        Friday, 27 April 2018, 4:48 pm
  • Last time I checked prostitution is illegal!

  • As I have known for a while, he is semi-literate, at best.

    Thursday, 26 April 2018, 9:21 pm
  • He wants a “temporary suspension”??? What a crock. He wants to hang on to his hefty, taxpayer paycheck, so he can still pay his hookers. He deserves immediate termination, along with NO retirement, pension, or whatever else he tries to suck out of the county. I would take Bill Cosby as commissioner over this freak any day. Send him to prison so he can be someone else’s wife. See how long he lasts, there.

  • First off, he will NOT spend one single day in jail for his charges.
    Secondly, he doesn’t deserve to receive money from taxpayers.
    Governor Scott should FIRE him without benefits!
    But then again Scott is a crook himself.

    Thursday, 26 April 2018, 8:18 pm
  • I did not vote for him.

    Thursday, 26 April 2018, 7:29 pm
  • LOL I have already started serious counseling and am currently under the care of a Doctor. The best i can come up with is you cut your days down to Three days a week ! at your house You have caused more SHAME to Hernando County than we dersive and for you to have the gall to write to the Gov and ask for an immediate temporary suspension is BS thousands of Hard working people in hernando county fighting to survive YOU Sit at a BOCC Meeting once a month less than 8 hours a month and collect 70K and 99% of the time all you say is i agree with one of the other members? Maybe you don’t know this but this SHAME is on websites as far as the U.K people Soon people will know Brooksville as Pornsville, You are truly a Disgrace to this county! And all this SHAME will never come off the internet.maybe you would like to address the people of Hernando County where you were last tue oh heck never mind it was TUE and everyone knows what you do on Tue & Sat 🙂 so in closing do the right thing just bow your head and move out of this county and take your SHAME with you. And just maybe if the people are lucky Gov. Rick Scott will can you !

    Thursday, 26 April 2018, 7:15 pm
    • Umm, it will go down as the first and ‘best’ little hoe house in Brooksville. He put us on da map!

  • Ok with all emotions put to the side lets us speak a little truth. First, if this was you or I no one would care and chances are between slim and none we would lose our jobs. So pkease lets atop with that emotional rant. Secondly Nick Nickolson was given his chance by his community and he has lost our trust. The should be no suspension but only 2 options. To either retire or get fired. Yes it is true that Nick shouldn’t be able to retire but he has that option only if he puts in the paperwork befor Governor Scott fires him. Nick I would suggest you retire tomorrow because your time is running out. It is my opinion that you are not fired yet because Governor Scott is trying to save you the public humiliation of being fired. But your time is running short.

  • The man wasn’t on the clock. He did that mundane job of listening to all the complaints from ordinary town folk that have nothing better to do than [email protected]$!% and moan about pathetic unimportant red tape kerfuffles. Even if he was, so what? We’re all zombies that drink the Kool Aid each and every day. You haters are just jealous you go to your 9 to 5’s every day and come home with just enough $ to barely pay the bills. People who get mad and want blood and jail for petty BS makes me sick to my gut. If we all stick together we won’t have to go to our slave jobs 6 days a week and spend only one day with our families. You all sound like a squawking gaggle of whiny … Poor poor me! My taxes pay his salary! Take some initiative and get a life of your own and stop pointing the finger and playing the blame game.

    Thursday, 26 April 2018, 5:54 pm
    • So you just did what you helled at everyone else for doing. At least if you are going to claim to better than everyone else at least last till the end of your statement. Lol

      Thursday, 26 April 2018, 6:52 pm
    • You are one of the ones who voted for him he must be your hunky buddy

      Thursday, 26 April 2018, 8:47 pm

      Thursday, 26 April 2018, 8:57 pm
    • We have the right to expect better of the people PAID to serve and represent the residents of Hernando County though.

      Friday, 27 April 2018, 1:54 am
    • JealousSheeple, you obviously must be his Monday,Friday bitch…..douchebag

      Friday, 27 April 2018, 6:55 am
  • I agree with all the comments above! Past due time to get him out, permanently!! He needs to spend a long time in the big house to figure out where he went wrong. And I don’t mean as in how he got caught.

    Thursday, 26 April 2018, 5:52 pm
  • It’s surprising that he didn’t say along with the start of serious therapy ( I take that as an admission of guilt as most readers would also) that he didn’t say that he also along w/ therapy He started to go to CHURCH every Sunday to plead to even in some minds as the ultimate decision maker for forgiveness which would override the Gov…..LOL. …some SLICK LAWYER advised him of what to say and do for sure!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thursday, 26 April 2018, 5:40 pm
  • Come on Hernando County BOCC and residents! TERMINATE this, if i did something like that i would have lost my job with the county!

    Thursday, 26 April 2018, 5:11 pm
  • He should not get suspended he should be removed and do his time and lose every benefit s he gets. If it was one us we would lose every thing . Then again look at the sheriff he still there. He needs to go also let clean up Hernando county take all the trash out . How do they get away with this . Hernando county is the laughing stock of Florida . I say people of Hernando write Scott but he’s just as bad . So it’s up to the people find some one who needs a job not some that’s there just for the money.

    Thursday, 26 April 2018, 4:32 pm
    • Exactly!

      Thursday, 26 April 2018, 6:23 pm
  • In other words do not allow for a special appointment or election to replace me. Let me be a serious creep but sit on my position and mess with the business for Hernando County until such time as I chose to move on. BS toss the jerk out.

    Thursday, 26 April 2018, 4:32 pm
  • oh Hell no….If the Governor even responds to this he needs to go….My friends and neighbors we do have a voice…The right thing is easy Nick needs to grow a set and man up and walk away.

    Thursday, 26 April 2018, 4:25 pm
  • Temporary suspension my fat, white, a$$!!!
    Fire this S.O.B. and put him in jail with the other johns!

    Thursday, 26 April 2018, 4:21 pm
    • Any working stiff would be FIRED from his/her job if the Employer would be aware of these charges……BAD BAD PUBLIC IMAGE FOR EMPLOYER !!!Conselling or no conselling would not save him why would the GOv?? e CAN and WILL BE REPLACE I;m sure!!!

      Thursday, 26 April 2018, 6:19 pm
  • I guess he intends to plead not guilty to the charges he faces. What comes to my mind is “When you lay-down with scum you become scum” In my opinion, he doesn’t belong on the Board, his credibility is less than what you would expect for an individual who supposedly represents this county.

    Thursday, 26 April 2018, 4:15 pm
  • This story brought to from mattress firm

    Thursday, 26 April 2018, 3:57 pm
  • Oh yes suspend him, what so he can still collect a paycheck! This is absolutely sickening. Look, you did the crime, be a man, owe up to it and do the time just like everyone else who breaks the law. You were supposed to represent this community as an honorable figure. You let every one down. Step down altogether.

    Thursday, 26 April 2018, 3:56 pm
  • Someone who has no intention of resigning sends a letter like that. He should have proof read the letter and fixed the mistakes. Not a good look in my opinion.

    Thursday, 26 April 2018, 3:54 pm
  • The only thing he is Sorry for is getting caught.. Period! There is No Temporary Suspension.. Bye Bye Criminal!

    Thursday, 26 April 2018, 3:47 pm
  • What’s really in that “little blue pill”

    Thursday, 26 April 2018, 3:44 pm
    • Ask Cosby! About 10 years worth.

      Thursday, 26 April 2018, 5:55 pm
  • He doesn’t need a doctor for Gods sake! There is nothing wrong with him, he just got caught doing the things men in power have have been doing for eons. Does he need a moral compass? …well maybe. We are all the same…

    Thursday, 26 April 2018, 3:22 pm
    • Truth

      Thursday, 26 April 2018, 3:48 pm
  • Temporary my ass, this dirt bag needs to be removed from office until he goes to jail for his actions he admitted to In his letter to Scott. We need to rid this county of scum and he certainly fills that role. Hangem

    Thursday, 26 April 2018, 3:14 pm
    • Correct!

      Thursday, 26 April 2018, 3:49 pm
    • , then shoot’em. Ftfy.

      Thursday, 26 April 2018, 3:51 pm
  • Are you kidding me!!! Temporarily suspend him. You know reality is that if it was a normal resident who was not on the Board they would lose their job and be labeled. What makes him think he deserves another chance! Ughh this sense of entitlement makes me sick
