FDLE OIG Inspector Keith Wilmer

A Kim Likens from the Governor's OIG left a message sometime Monday (July 3rd)morning to call her. I returned her call around 1:00 p.m. Central. A Mr. Fred Wollet answered. Ms. Likens wasn't available. Wollet said that she was with the Chief Inspector's office. I left a message. Ms. Likens called back within an hour. She told me that her boss, Dawn Case, wanted her to call me and tell me that she had forwarded my letter to the Governor to FDLE OIG Al Dennis earlier in the day. Ms. Likens said that this matter belongs with the FDLE. FDLE OIG Inspector Keith Wilmer called me a short time afterwards. Inspector Wilmer said that his call was in response to an earlier email to IG Dennis and that he didn't know anything other than that or about my letter to Gov. Bush. Yesterday morning (July 4th) I emailed Inspector Wilmer with a courtesy copy to IG Dennis a recap of our conversation from the day before and I asked him to advise me regarding any material misrepresentations or misstatements in my message. I've pasted the text of my email to FDLE OIG Inspector Wilmer below.

Mr. Wilmer,

This is a follow-up to your phone call yesterday afternoon. I'll briefly recap our conversation. You said that you were calling about an email that you received from IG Dennis regarding a Dodge minivan. I asked you if you were a Criminal Investigator and you replied that you were. You stated that you were not recording our phone conversation. I asked you what OIG you were affiliated with. You said that you were with the FDLE OIG and calling about my email to IG Dennis regarding a remote transponder in a Dodge minivan. You denied that you saw any other correspondence, such as my letters to Gov. Bush or FL AG Crist or had any other prior knowledge of my complaint. You said that your inquiry just involved the email concerning the minivan. You asked me who the vehicle belonged to, why would law enforcement put a remote transponder in it, and who verified that there was a tracking device in it? I told you that the minivan belonged to a family member, I didn't answer your question regarding why, and I told you that I would have to check the record to see the expert who verified its presence. I did tell you that the expert said the FDLE had a warrant and would have to tell me about it and the bugs on the pole within 30 days. I told you that it's been more than 30 days.

I asked you directly if there were any Florida law enforcement "bugs" on the utility poles servicing the house and grounds. You said that you didn't know. You added that you didn't know anything regarding this matter other than what was contained in the email that you received from IG Dennis. Again you said that you didn't know anything about my letter to Gov. Bush.

You asked me for the names of the three experts that verified the bugs on the utility poles and why they didn't supply reports. I told you that I'd have to check the records and that they didn't supply reports because they were tampered with by the FDLE and perhaps some other state agencies. You asked me a question concerning the dates involved. I told you that the first incident to best of my recollection was either 2001 or 2002 following the bungled drug bust of my neighbors. I said that an FDLE agent disguised as a FedEx driver delivered 3.5 lb. of meth to my neighbor's wife. I told him that my neighbor arrived home as the bust was going down and ran off with the 3.5 lbs. of meth. I told you that an FDLE helicopter returned later that evening on the pretext of picking up my neighbor who ran off earlier with 3.5 lbs.of meth, but that I was the intended target. You didn't allow me to finish and interrupted repeatedly saying that this has nothing to do with your investigation. I told you that it has everything to do with it.

You asked me if I had looked for the tracking device in the minivan. I told you that I didn't. You advised me that I'd have to have some certified mechanic inspect the minivan and verify that there's a bug in it. When I asked you again if there were FL law enforcement bugs on the utility poles, you said to contact the power supplier and ask them to do a search for "illegal attachments" and supply you with their "report of findings." I told you that I had already requested that and that with the protection of the FDLE the utility later removed the original bugs and replaced them with the next generation. You told me that I'd have to pay for the experts to verify the presence of "attachments" and to supply their "reports of findings" to you. I told you that the FDLE kept threatening the experts with loss of their PI license or else they had conflicts of interest. You cut me off before I could discuss any expert's conflicts of interests, although I said that they'd lose their licenses or else go to jail. You said that's not possible.

If you believe that I misrepresented or misstated any of the above, please advise me as to what statement(s) you specifically disagree with and why.

Finally, if I did supply you with direct evidence of illegal electronic surveillance by FL law enforcement, what action could you take as an FDLE Criminal Investigator (Inspector)? And, what action would you take as an FDLE Criminal Investigator regarding illegal electronic surveillance and official misconduct by certified Florida law enforcement officers?
