Sheriff's have been crooks from the begainning...Back in the 1800's they could of killed someone in one state and be sheriff in another.
I don't see why being a felon would matter, if the dumb ass people elect him the they desreve what they get.
I don't see how being a felon would make a differance, Look at the Mayor of thaqt city up north. He was a crack head..
the only reason behind this felon running for sheriff is his adversory is worried about being beat.\People do stupid things all the time,look at the current and past presidents, look at the governer and all the money they stole.
Truth is nobody will do anything about it anyway so why bother. If you don't want a sheriff with a felon don't vote for him. It shows you what the political reps think about the people, that they have to change laws to keep you from voting.
