The gun raffle and campaigning on duty issues are deplorable but it’s not a surprise. Those issues are however, absolutely trivial and insignificant if compare to the reality of the crimes that have been white-washed and swept under the carpet throughout the current ‘acting’ Sheriff’s career. It’s ironic that in his attempts to paint Whaley as a “good ol’ boy” in his campaign speeches, he conveniently forgets that it was the good ol’ boys (and his own Detective Father) that saved him (at least) three times from being reported and prosecuted on serious felony crimes (both on and off duty). The ‘acting’ Sheriff should be aware that there is a good majority of people (and witnesses) that have a backbone and aren’t easily intimidated.
Control of TCSO was forfeited after Whaley retired from his undersheriff position. It was the undisputed truth that Whaley was truly in charge during his tenure. It was also undisputed that Wittman took a backseat and focused on being a politician. Unfortunately, Wittman placed his faith with people that had agenda’s and perceived political power after Whaley retired. Now, TCSO is reaping what was sewn from those poorly made appointments.
There are so many facts at play here that need to be exposed. They are going to be exposed. The ‘acting’ Sheriff will erode the Office of Sheriff into an unimaginable mess if elected. I can assure you, the true facts (not campaign promises) will be his undoing. Also, the cookie-cutter term of “mud slinging” doesn’t apply. I openly challenge anyone that can dispute the true facts that I have. The Office of the Sheriff can (and will) be salvaged with Whaley.
Editor’s response: You have not really said anything here, apart from your claim of witnesses in the know of facts that need to be exposed. You even claim a few facts for yourself. I openly challenge you, if you’ve seen fit to comment thus far, to disclose them.
