where there's bob, there's drama.
With every campaign of his against every candidate he ran against, bob focused more on personal drama (true or not) rather than fact.
When an inappropriate question was asked at a forum, BOBBY demanded the card from a little old lady and threatened to finger print the card.
When Emergency Management was removed from his authority, BOBBY took all the keys to the vehicles.
When. Chief Finney announced his campaign for Sheriff, BOBBY created a Cold Case Unit and selected an old suicide case that many said was a murder at the hands of Finney's friend at the time. UPDATE: the cold case unit has done nothing since and the former friend has been cleared, again.
When a Lt announced his campaign for Sheriff, BOBBY took his responsibilities from him and put him in booking. He did the same to a female supporter and both sued BOBBY which cost the tax payers almost 1 million dollars!
When Matt Bostrom defeated the embattled Sheriff, BOBBY hired 2 of his supporters as Deputies even though they failed background checks at other agencies.
His last minute hiring of these two (questionable characters) as he was walking out the door is typical BOBBY!
Will Ramsey county ever be rid of this maniac?
Countless people asked when St. Paul would be rid of you, Bill. After learning about your friend who murdered his wife, the public learned alot about you and your other friends. You will never be appointed or elected to another public service job as a result. You are a legend in your mind, only.

Lydon testifies. Here's what he said about Naylon. His buddy convicted in federal court. He's a creditable person....LOL

But in a letter to the judge, Steve Lydon, director of special operations for the sheriff's department, turned it into a positive.

"Mark attempted to tease an investigator who searched the room where he played the joke," Lydon wrote. "Fortunately this joke delayed investigators from leaving the mobile home for approximately 15 minutes. As investigators were laughing about the joke Mark spotted a vehicle wanted in connection with the homicide slowly drive by the mobile home."

Naylon's "dedication and assistance was not limited to Ramsey County," Lydon noted. He said that in his 29 years in law enforcement, "I have never known or work (sic) with any other individual who contributed more critical information, that led to the recovery of so many weapons, explosives and the arrest of dangerous fugitives as Mark Naylon has."
More fun reading about these clowns.

Bolen was one of the six deputies (including Miller and Graham) Fletcher hired after he lost the election. Bolen became a deputy Dec. 30, 2010, five days before Bostrom took office.

Bolen is still a deputy, assigned to the Court and Security Services Division.

Shew, got out that one. Hopefully they don't look into my background....

More FOB. Just hire 4 midget Hmongs to replace them, like BOGO. No problem.
