Mike Hunt acts like a part-time sheriff who we are paying over $93,000 per year who wants to be a full-time firefighter in Clearwater. This criminal should be charged with misconduct in office, obstruction of justice and misuse of county government property. He was indicted by the Aiken Grand Jury for murder after they found probable cause to charge him.
Why does he still want to be a sheriff when he spends most of his time at the Clearwater fire department or with his mistress?

Further the Aiken Grand Jury, a group of 18 citizens of his peers, found probable cause to directly indict our current sheriff, Mike Hunt. Just because he was not prosecuted doesn't mean that he's innocent of murder, just that a jury has not yet found him guilty. There is no statute of limitations for murder in South Carolina.
I also heard that he has been stopped many times by the SC Highway Patrol for drunk driving and even received a DUI. Didn't he run into the back of someone's car in 2005 in the valley? Did he receive a ticket for that accident or did they try to cover it up too?

Aiken Sheriff's Office screws up again by falsely arresting WRDW reporter Chad Mills for DUI. Just another case of false arrest in Aiken County by Mike Hunt and his gang of thieves.

My name is Jim Vause. I am a candidate for Sheriff of Aiken County. I understand the outrage of the murder indictment, the total waste of taxpayers money, the fraud, the backroom deals, the arrogance of Hunt as well as some deputies, his corruption with video poker,his drunkenness,his skirt chasing, his destruction of innocent careers of those who stood up to him, his DUI, his poor property book accountability of assets,(He's missing radios, guns etc.)his ignorance of dog fighting within the county,his misappropriations of Homeland Security funds, his benign neglect of his available resources that are of no expense to the tax payers, i.e. the Reserve Officer Program, The S.C. Constable Program and the local Neighborhood Crime Watch Program. He is owned by the good old boys and is only allowed to do what they tell him. My programs of Police Community Realations, tax dollar savings and my qualifications for running are clearly published at www.jimvauseforsheriff.org . I am the best qualified candidate in this race and I will take office oweing nothing to anyone.My tag line is " No more back room, cigar smoking, liquor drinking, deal making, back slapping, back stabbing, good old boy system. All that is dead........and I'm the undertaker.
On June 12th....we have two clear choices....me or Hunt. I don't think we can afford 4 more years of Mike Hunt.I am asking for your vote and the vote of your friends. I promise you........you'll be glad you voted for me.
Just to give you my basics. I am a retred U.S.Army Commander with 25 years of service and two tours of combat for my country. I have 35 years of law enforcement experience that covers four areas of expertise.I am a SLED certified high risk security company owner and a SLED certified CWP instructor. I have a degree in Criminal Justice and I am trying to finish one in Human Services.
My skeleton in the closet is that I got a 2 point speeding ticket in 1979.Please don't hold that against me.
Jim Vause
Candidate for Aiklen County Sheriff
From the Aiken Standard: Thursday, May 3, 2012: "The person or persons responsible for circulating the flier have not come forward. Vause admits that he has brought up the same indictment in the past, writing letters to local media outlets and posting similar comments on Facebook, but said he is not behind the flier campaign.
"The only thing that I have put out has my name on it," Vause said. "I don't know who supporting me is doing this, but I don't sanction this."
He went on to say that he believes the murder indictment is a non-issue.
"Once it was explained to me, it was a dead issue," he said."" When was it explained to you Mr. Vause? Yesterday? Two days ago? You look like a fool now. Keep beating your drum and dragging your followers along with you. Pathetic indeed.

Fired both heads of his narcotics division (Brian Owensby and Daniel Gainey), can't solve any murder cases, harrasses our children with class A misdemeanor charges (such as disorderly conduct) so they can't serve in the military or get accepted into college and will grow up as a non-veteran uneducated redneck like he is, has over 50% turnover rate due to low moral and intimation by his Chief Deputy Dewayne Courtney, numerous law suits filed against him, took money from folks in Graniteville after the train wreck. Also heard Mike Hunt was the town's known drunk ho hopper sheriff. All the gliters is not gold.

Why do we have so many sheriff deputy cars riding around Aiken and North Augusta. The sheriff's office in overfunded at over $10,000,000. We need a new sheriff in Aiken and someone who knows how to control their budget. Budget increases of $500,000 to $700,000 per year is unacceptable. Mike Hunt is a crazy dishonest sheriff.
Why is Mike Hunt charging $6.00 per incident report, and often times making citizens wait 2 weeks to get something they can quickly copy in one day? Some reports are only one page long. This is an excessive charge to the public and nothing more than an attempt to limit public information to the voters and citizens of Aiken County.

SC HOUSE BILL H.3235, sponsored by Rep Bill Taylor targets Sheriff Mike Hunt's failure to release public information at a reasonable cost to citizens of Aiken County. Strengthening the Freedom of Information (FOI) Act: last week the South Carolina House approved the FOI bill strengthening the state's open records law. The 101-1 vote got a lot of statewide press. The bill bars public agencies, governments and school districts from charging excessive fees for public records and requires them to respond more quickly. It also removes legislators' exemption from the law. The bill limits charges for paper copies to the market rate - basically whatever office supply stores charge per copy. There can be no charges for information stored or transmitted electronically. The bill also requires agencies to respond in 15 calendar days rather than 15 working days. House bill H.3235 has been sent to the SC Senate for their consideration and approval.

I am a victim of violent crime in Aiken and my brother was murdered at his back door. no justice has been served in either case. Our Sherrif's dept. will not get off of thier butts and do the work to put these violet criminals away. Te man that shot me is free to continue his crimes. I am also a victim of theft and nothing was ever done even though there was plenty of evidence regarding the theft done by Jeffery Turner. Also, Ben Strickland has repeatedly taken advantage of the elderly and others with his home repair scams and it is overlooked. The current administration pick and choose the laws it will enforce. There is rampant drug sales going on and they are overlooking that also. I also know of a murderer that shot a friend of mine between his eyes and he got away with that. They called it an accident. Also I had someone attempt to cut my timber off of my land. They would do nothing about that.

Mike Hunt is a worthless corrupt sheriff in Aiken County. Ask Mike Toole what he thinks about this POS.
