Mark Shook is by far the worst sheriff that I have ever seen. All he cares about is having the power, power to get publicity that is. He has no interest in making anything better. All he wants is exactly what you are doing, putting his name out there so it will be known. He is a bad person he has no murals, and I believe no heart. He has put so many families threw a lot of crap by putting the people he bust in the paper and making them look like they are the scum of the earth. When in fact thats all he is SCUM.. Which needs to be removed from sheriff.

After hearing testimony from 59 witnesses, the County Board made 61 findings of fact, including the following pertinent findings in its 17 December 2002 order: 55. The evidence in its totality, both direct and circumstantial, constitutes

substantial evidence of widespread buying of votes,

either for straight Republican votes or for Gary Clark in the Caldwell County Sheriff's race, in Caldwell County during the 2002 general election. From the testimony of numerous witnesses, the Board finds that it was common knowledge in all of the predominately African- American communities that anyone could get paid for voting a straight Republican ballot or by voting for Clark.
