Alabama sheriff due in federal court this week for contempt hearing about inmate meals
Law enforcement officers for the most part are good public servants. All it takes is one corrupt officer to smear an entire force. Sheriff Franklin and cronies should be held accountable and face the consequences.
Information updated daily on Sheriff Ana Franklin and her criminal co-conspirator thugs at the morgancountywhistleblower.com
Additionally as shared on the blog the Sheriffs Office has some excellent high quality professional law enforcement officers. It is the Sheriff and her thugs. The corruption is with Ana Franklin , Bones Wilson and Blake Robinson. Then those she brought in like Larry Berzet and Ron Livingston there are more but it's very complicated. Read the blog and it's all there.
And thank you Ashley and the whistleblowers for doing a good job fighting corruption and letting us all know what is happening in our corrupt county.
I am saddened by this. I voted for her and live in Morgan County. I thought she was an honest sweet person who would make a difference...doesn't sound like she lived up to what she promised...TRANSPARENCY...not...I hope the Feds are on her because she did this County wrong...last Sheriff took money...shame on you Ana. I pray you surround yourself with law abiding and good people wherever you may end up after this fiasco.
Regardless of democrat or republican, people who break the law should be prosecuted. This woman should be ASHAMED of herself! Pathetic!

The sheriff allegedly traveled to the beach to attend the event but she did not attend the event.
I did not think another elected official could top Mike Hubbard in the category of "corrupt slimebag".... but I think the sheriff beats Hubbard to win the category.
@lol Its not just here, its the same in all the red states. All the repugs are as crooked as they come. Lying, stealing cheating, its their very nature.
$160,000 is not really close to $250,000. It's a little more than half that amount. Not that fairy tales by the Sheriff's lawyer even matter, since she and so many around her are obviously crooked as a dog's hind leg.
After reading the entire account, I think Ashley Remkus has done a very good job of laying out the massive corruption in Morgan County. The sheriff is corrupt, most of the deputies are corrupt, and you would have to include the prosecutor's office and commissioners too. It is obvious that they all know or are involved. We citizens in Alabama know that government police, prosecutors, and poltiicians in Alabama are as crooked as any you can find. The real piece of garbage is the grandson. What kind of punk would turn on his grandmother tor $200? That is beyond the imagination for most of us. The grandson is nothing but "chickens.....t". This county is always in the news for drug busts, and police brutality and requires a complete clean out of the vermin in government.
@HighVisibility You had the 'Post of the Day' until you said that "the grandson" was the real piece of garbage. The VERY corrupt sheriff manipulated the grandson with the promise of money, and that they weren't going after his grandmother, they just wanted the Warden... THEY LIED! There's your REAL garbage. No way that I could condone what the grandson did... but they lied to him, pure and simple.
@inkpin4 I think anyone in their 20's who is in a Volunteer FD, should have enough sense to read the tea leaves. The fact he stole a key to break in later should have set off the alarm of the year for that clown. I know THEY LIED, but all cops, prosecutors, and politicians lie and the grandson knows that. My guess is he got offered an FD position and cash if he followed through on the summiest act I've seen so far this year. That or this grandson is dumber than dirt and some scumbag deputy could easily manipulate the man. Stealing a key and coming back at night to plant a bug is nothing less than a low rent, characterless act.
@inkpin4 We both agree it was a vindictive setup by a corrupt sheriff and deputies. The prosecutors and judges knew it too. Time for some serious firings and prison time for these corrupt clowns.
But y'all won't clean out any "vermin." That's the problem.
Y'all just mindlessly vote for whoever runs as a Republican.
How did this corrupt low-life thug get the title of sheriff? Wow, she stole money from the inmates' grub account!
@socialuser4179 Because she ran against an incumbent low-life thug that was jailed for contempt of court.
@socialuser4179 Simple. THIS low-life thug ran on the platform that she wouldn't keep the left over food money for herself like the PREVIOUS low life thug did. Aint that a hoot? ROFLMAO
Well, Anna's gone a long way from when I grew up a few doors from her. Unfortunately, she seems to have gone from a cute, sweet girl to a typical Alabama politician.
simple. just lock her up ans serve her jail food until she pays up. too many people these days claiming to be lovers of God while they treat others inhumanely. jo arpiao tried such stuff in arizona. he has been voted out finally and now too is up on federal charges. people, treat others well. God commands it.
If we all pull together we have an opportunity to force the Alabama legislature to change the laws that allows Alabama Sheriffs to take inmate food funds. Alabama is the ONLY state that gives less than honest sheriffs the right, incentive, and the opportunity to take leftover food funds. I believe that most of the sheriffs in Alabama are honest and take their job seriously. The sheriffs have an opportunity to help us fight against this ridicules and outdated law. The question is will they? If not, we voted them in office and we can vote them out.
The meal money was a secret perk that Sheriffs enjoyed until it was exposed. Sheriffs should not have a financial incentive to put people in jail.
Legislators are not gods. We are their bosses. They work for us.
Call your state Rep & Senator and DEMAND this law be changed. Make a nuisance of yourself. Pester them on FB, whatever it takes
This is simply impossible to believe. Why, I'm old enough to remember when people assured me that if only women were put in charge of things, we would have more compassionate and ethical government. I'm so disillusioned!
