Okay......the sheriff resigns and someone is appointed to fill an elected position.....Whats wrong with that, hhhmmmmmmm. Plenty..there needs to be a state law that if the Sheriff resigns before his elected term....well, then there needs to be an election....these guys have got it all figured out......pass the baton.....and you have a hand picked incumbent with an advantage over anyone else seeking the job. This is clearly done to side step Federal anti-corruption laws....Specifically....the Hatch Amendment......
