Lets just call them "the powers that be". I posted information about obtaining autopsy reports and it lasted maybe 30 minutes before it was pulled. Why, I don't know. A while back a guy calling himself ex-american made a series of heavy duty, but semi-racist post and he got pulled. I've seen worse stuff slide. Go figure. I've made some risque posts in Latin on other forums, most did not make it a half hour.

Here is something to think about.
How does a county vote in a sheriff four times in a row who is not qualified?
Did the Board of elections do their job by checking his qualifications all four times?
How did his name get on the ballot?
Did the person who swore him in know he was illegal?
We know the prosecutor knew he was illegal. Is that dereliction of duty?
It appears our prosecutor does not follow the law where it says she shall, instead she picks and choses who she wants to file on. Or is it pick on? That is not the way the law is supposed to work. So does the prosecutor have a mental problem? Is she a psychopath? Is she a pathological liar? I don't think we can have someone with those quality's in that legal office as prosecutor. Maybe they need to have a psychological evaluation before they are put on the ballot. But then again will the Board of Elections do their job?

Final autopsy reports are "open records." Anyone can request a copy of any final autopsy report by sending a written request for a copy, and e-mail is the best way because a digital copy sent to an e-mail address is free, whereas a hard copy costs money,$.25/page plus postage, minimum of $1.00 copy fee.

Having a "service" spoils me. Post the address, Dennis. When I do, it gets pulled.

Under( F)(1) He only gave his address. Big deal. And who signed off on that? Judge Gusweiler?
Under (F)(2) Is where there is a problem as they did not check his qualifications.
Did he know he was not qualified? Sure, he knew what the qualifications were and that he did not qualify. I believe that is called fraud.

You're thinking, Wayne. I like that. I bet you are not from BC or got out while you could. I don't know who "signed off" but literacy is not a requirement to "sign off" on a document in Ohio (seriously). The other point you made about "fraud" could force a debate about whether it was an act of fraud or misrepresentation. There are significant differences in Ohio's legal world. By point it out, however, You have uncovered a "learned falsity". Let that concept stir the proverbial pot a bit and let's see what boils over.

It is a requirement for the Board of Elections to qualify someone running for office.

If the sheriff is collecting money and is not qualified that is fraud.

Is it getting interesting yet?

Point 1. That is not what is legally known as an inclusive requirement (seriously). Very technical concepts involved here. Literacy is not a requirement to serve on the Board of Elections (again, seriously). Point 2. Legally two (or more) separate issues. Uber complex. Point 3. I haven't had so much fun since the time the hogs ate my little brother. You are thinking. Keep it up!

What was the reason for your posting the thread in the first place? If you know the answers please post them. The people of brown county sure don't know the answer because they voted Wenninger in four times in a row. What needs to be done?

I posted the thread because most people had no clue about the qualifications. People vote emotionally, not logically (statistically true). Google George Ratterman Newport Kentucky for an answer to your last question.

Are you saying our sheriff is following the footsteps of George Ratterman and visiting hookers? Our church going sheriff; you don't say.
