More and more Republicans are distancing themselves from Alan Jones. He has proven that he was not what he promised and the bad decisions he makes has caused most in the party to rethink their support. Ben Griffin will run and the main party will also run someone other than Jones. We are looking at a three way primary for the Republicans and I can guarantee that Jones will not get the party's endorsement this time.
Soon there will be another Sheriff and it won't be jones!

64% Democratic vote gone. He knows why. Was it worth promoting the creep to Capitano? I'm not shutting up. Ben, I hope you do run.

Just when you think it can't get any funnier, WHAM!!!
Ben Griffin couldn't win a dog catcher election in Caldwell County. Heck fire I'd just about bet Willard Blevins could beat Ben Griffin in this county. I sincerely hope the Republican party better sense than that. The best thing Ben can do for the Republican party in this county and district is to retire from politics altogether.

Why is it other than a few pissed off ex employees you don't hear anything bad from CCSD?? I have had to deal with new captain recently on legal issues and have found him nothing but professional and personable. I think as long as Jones holds his ground and don't piss the wrong people off, his reelection is assured. Ben is not a law officer and should not run just because of political motives. If Jones don't burn bridges or make huge wrong decisions his job is safe.

Yep! You have a few people that are still mad Hutchins lost the election. They represent a minority in the county and their ramblings are of little consequence.

No one cares that Hutch lost, he was no better. You and your minority group in the party are delusional and trying to save face in the party after backing Jones. Jones time is over and so is any hope at the Sheriffs Office next election unless we expel you and your tiny group from the party. You know as good as I do the party is split between the useless Jones supporters and the Old Guard GOP. I have news for you and it sucks for you but ole Ben is making waves in higher places over Jones and he has the evidence needed, you can laugh now but you and Jones will be some sad sacks come next election. The timing will be perfect so don't you worry, we would rather you get a good laugh now and assume all is well. More people here in the DC area know about it then you really want to know and they have no problem taking down fellow Republicans that are an embarrassment to the party.

No! I'm not intimidated by you and why is Sheriff Jones's marriage of any concern to you? You Lowlife pond-scum busy body, always trying to put someone else down in order to make yourself feel better. Just shut up and go away we are tired of hearing your crap.

You are a retarded moron if you think all this will go away. You are a low life piece of garbage if you can support a man that allowed as much money to be embezzled as he allowed Amy. The swinging is one thing, I have no problem with what people do on their own time but he and the others are elected officials and LEO... different rules apply to them sorry. The violation of Hatch act laws that ran rampant during the last election maybe what finally gets him and I bet it isn't even on his radar, it sure is on some others in Raleigh and further though. You have lost and so has he, you're just to stupid to know it yet. Enjoy your free ride, the storm clouds draw nigh.

Don't know Jones or any of them personally and in my view their personal life is their private matter. I have dealt with BJ over the past couple weeks and as far as I am concerned he has been nothing but professional and helpful. If the CCSD was as screwed as you guys try to make it out to be then the state and Feds would have already been all over it. Again I think a few ex-employees are trying to stir trouble

Of coarse BJ is on his best behavior, the entire department is watching their P's and Q's for now. The SBI is involved but like any investigation they take their time and compile evidence. No matter how much damage control you want to throw out there it still stands that Amy Morgan was let go and embezzlement in unknown amounts took place, many (seven) CCSO employees were let go amid a scandal, numerous lawsuits are pending. I happen to know for certain not everyone on here is a disgruntled ex employee, many are still there trying to get the truth out and will co operate with the SBI's investigation. If you say this is professional law enforcement then I imagine you are part of the problem. They are going to no ends to keep it covered up and pulling every string possible because they know what will happen.

Let me see, under Jones we have had the Amy Morgan theft scandal, the botched up Anderson case, the swinger scandal, the officer shooting his grandmother to death, the ongoing saga of Capt. Monty Porch, high turnover, low morale and I am sure i have forgotten or omitted plenty more.
That being said, I still don't want a Ben Griffin backed sheriff either. I hope a decent candidate (not a retread old guy sorry democrats ) will emerge from either party that is both competent and honest. If the choice is Jones or a Griffin candidate or a retread Democrat, I can assure you the office will be held by someone neither competent or honest.

I by no means condone any type of those actions, I am just saying why is this not public information?? It seems the only neg info I hear is on topix . If all this is true, then yes, changes should be made.

They have went to great lengths to keep it out of the media and the county has done a great job of damage control. If you recall WBTV attempted to report the situation but CCSO and CC stonewalled and refused to release any detailed info. All the County would release was that people had been let go over personal reasons. The embezzlement is probably the greatest slap to the taxpayers face and they will do all they can to keep the extent of it under wraps. Lots and lots of things have happened over the years there and it made it to the press but people still seem to think everything is A OK out there. People around here just seem to be apathetic about things. It's easy to just dismiss it as pissed former employees but doesn't it seem strange that so much came out at one time and there were no recent firings at that time.

You've got to be kidding. It doesn't matter what waves Ben makes in higher places. Even if Ben Griffin had experience in law enforcement he is unelectable in Caldwell County. Period. The Republican party has better sense than to endorse him for Sheriff. That would amount to forfeiting the office to anyone that would choose to run against him.

I'll be honest, I myself assumed all was ok basically because of the lack of media attention. Lifestyle choices are one issue but embezzlement cover up is totally non acceptable
