Now the Georgia Times-Union has joined the Tribune and Georgian in exposing Bill Smith and the shady practices and overspending he got away with when he was Sheriff in Camden County.

Bill Smith says he was exonerated regarding the charges brought against him four to six years ago. Hardly, most of the charges had merit. The District Attorney said it was too difficult to prosecute because of the differences between state and federal laws violated, statutes of limitations because the investigation took so long, etc.

Read the article, folks. You will find it on the front page of today's paper. VERY REVEALING!

well, you are obviously lost if you think Gregory is the answer. Bill is not perfect, by no means, but Gregory is not even capable of running his house, much less the SO

Tell us what is so great about your boy Gregory. If you like him so much then support him and tell us what he has done for this county that is so great that I should give him and my many family members votes. Just asking you tell me how he has helped anyone in this county and give their names and what he did for them? If he is so good as a Sheriff this should be easy for you to do?

the steak, quiche and fish were all purchased b/c they were steeply discounted b/c they needed to cooked immediately...but you don't know that b/c you didn't work there. the newspaper knows this but they choose to only print they deem important. so get off the food already...it had to be sold and cooked immediately and if you pulled the receipts you would see that the discount is noted but you choose to keep laying blame where there is none. as far as the scholarships...when the hell is giving a kid a scholarship ever a bad thing??? i don't care if its here, UGA, UF, the Citadel or anywhere else....its a damn educational scholarship! jill and her thuggies are all just pissy b/c he called them out.

The same can be asked of you. What has Bill Smith done for this county? Most of the things Bill did were done under the table and paid for with county or seized asset funds.He used inmates as his personal workforce, to do jobs for folks. Personal forced labor is illegal, and so is using seized funds to pay for it! The last few years of his tenure, Bill became mean and self centered. He was vindictive and self serving. He showed his true colors near the end of the last election, as the end drew near. He began spending up all the drug fund monies like it was going out of style. He was throwing it around like it was his own personal bank account. He wanted to leave office; and he knew he was leaving, with a zero balance on the books. That was his baby and he wasn't going to pass it on to Tommy. His ego wouldn't allow it. Bill did the same thing you all are accusing Tommy of; he often fired people, using his "at the will of the Sheriff", then he would turn around and hire a bunch of non law enforcement types, usually his old mill buddies, at a greater cost to the taxpayers(they had to be trained). He fired 13 good officers in Jan/06, just to make room for some of his buddies from the mill. He felt obligated to help them out when they lost their jobs because the mill shut down. What about the ones he fired who had been loyal to him for all those years? Most of them had been there for 10 plus years and were good officers. Nope, Ol' Bill is no different than Tommy is, except that he is older now and more about taking his revenge out on those who put him out of office last election. He has changed since he lost his power throne. He is gonna be about getting even before he is gone for good, he knows his time is running out.He is gonna leave his mark before he checks out. Bill"Obama" Smith is is still a Democrat at heart, remember he changed parties last election. I don't support Tommy either, so get that out of your minds, but I think the Times Union is right on the money! Vote Jim Proctor in November and give this county a chance to get away from the old outdated leadership and put some new blood in office!

Former Camden sheriff challenges incumbent to get job back
Bill Smith asserts huge investigation that helped defeat him four years ago was politically motivated.
By Terry Dickson
WOODBINE, GA.— Bill Smith hopes Tommy Gregory is just one of those gaps in his family’s hold on the Camden County Sheriff’s Office.
Before Gregory beat Smith four years ago, Smith had been sheriff 24 years. Gregory’s win over Smith in 2008 ended that run, but now Smith is trying to get the badge back in Tuesday’s Republican primary. No Democrats are running.
Smith’s father Willie Smith had been sheriff for 34 years with a gap between them. Before that, Smith’s grandfather had been sheriff, but Smith couldn’t recall how long he held the office.
When the younger Smith decided he would run for sheriff in the 1980s, then-Sheriff Jimmy Middleton decided not to run for re-election after eight years in office.
