We are pretty sure Ana will spend most if not all of her time in South Alabama this June. Paid for by the citizens of Morgan County, Alabama of course. June is the month that multiple law enforcement classes are scheduled in Orange Beach. Not that Ana will attend the classes. It is a means to use MCSO money to have play time near her most recent love. Last year Ana spent almost the entire month of June in South Alabama, where her vehicle hit a couple in Bay Minette and damn near killed them. Franklin later told multiple lies about the accident and eventually settled a lawsuit with the family.
Franklin is probably the first sheriff in the history of Alabama to spend more time out of office than in the office. Would you want her in the office any more than she has been there? Probably not. Each time Franklin is in town that gives her another opportunity to head downtown to the bank and request a counter check to write more checks on the MCSO bank accounts. It is clear that Franklin's efforts to hide her criminal activities is intentional and also laughable. Why would a sheriff or other political figures walk in the bank and write a counter check? There are no valid reason folks. Unless you plan on obtaining a bank check and writing it to a nefarious company or writing it to yourself to place in your retirement fund. I have a copy of a check that was written in a feminine hand for $15,000.00 dollars paid to Ana Franklin from the Priceville Title Mart (this check has nothing to do with the $150,000.00 dollar check she wrote to the Title Mart). I believe Sheriff Ana Franklin received 1099 for her work and services to the title. Did Franklin report those funds in the same manner she reported her investments on the Statement of Economic Interest? Probably. Which means she hasn't reported crap. More lies and more felony counts on her Statement of Economic Interest. I can't help but wonder if she used the same attorney for advice and assistant as she used to conspire with an informant to gain interest in an office prior to obtaining a search warrant? She probably did. The 15K check written from the Title Mart went into a bank in Cullman, Alabama.
The only thing anybody had to do from the beginning of Franklin's Commander in Chief reign of terror and thieftdum activities was to follow the money. The money was moving as fast as sand in our glass. Early on in Franklin reign of terror nobody would have believed what was going on in the sheriff's office if we had told them. We knew about it and we could see it happening but Franklin still had a very tight hold on the voters during the 2014 election. We understand that Franklin plans on throwing her hat in the ring for the 2017 election. However, just in case that falls through we understand that Franklin's people have come up with a man from Trinity that has even less experience than Franklin did when she ran. I know! Many of you folks are sitting out there in blog land right now saying Ana had a host of qualifications for sheriff when she ran. A little secret here folks. Ana lied. She did not have near the qualifications she claimed to have. Just look around you. Do you really believe that with all the experience Franklin claimed in to have in 2010 the sheriff's office would be the shamble it is in? The only experience Ana brought to the table is how to lie, cheat, and steal while building her nest egg. Franklin exceeded her expectations in milking the sheriff's office of valuable highly skilled employees and monetary assets. Franklin was confident that nobody would catch her, she was all-powerful the high sheriff, everybody looked up to and loved Ana. Folks, it isn't about a love-hate relationship with the public. It is about serving and protecting the citizens of the county. It is about honesty and integrity. The reason Franklin was able to win her bid for election and reelection for sheriff is that of the citizen's belief in Ana's platform for sheriff. Her pre-office promises to be transparent, her promises to stay away from the inmate food funds, and to lead by example (how's that working out for the citizens of Morgan County?)
The people involved in the Title Mart Ponzi Scheme also had a plan. Their plan was to gain financially from the Ponzi scheme. They worked hard to circle their wagons and blame all of the lost money from the Title Marts on Mr. Jeffreys and his family. The problem with the plan is that it was put together by dumb, dumber, and dumbest. Moe, Larry, and Curly could have devised a better plan to milk the Jeffreys of their money than these folks did.We are getting close to another campaign season. The citizens of Morgan County are more informed than ever before on the corruption that can and has corrupted our county. They realize what can happen when a public official has to much power with no oversight. It is our hope that the county commission takes a more proactive role in the future to inspect the records they receive from the sheriff's office and report those findings to the Governor or the Alabama State Attorney Generals Office in the future. We understand that the commission does receive records that will reflect suspicious accounting activities from the sheriff's office. If you see it report it. Like the advertisement for METH goes. See METH STOP METH. See Corruption Stop Corruption.
Franklin realizes that she has to do something fast. All of her attempts to outside investigations have failed miserably. If the forensic specialist out of Marshall County had found any illegal activity on Warden Leon Bradley's computers or on the computers the Sheriff illegally placed Keylogger software on Bradley and Lockhart would have been in jail in a New York minute. Folks, Franklin has to do something. Franklin has to muddy the water and if that means she has got to make false accusations to try and change public opinion or to make one last attempt to destroy the whistleblowers or a business she will do it. Be prepared for Sheriff Franklin to make last-minute attempts against the whistleblowers and others to further her reign of terror.
