First and foremost we want to make a correction. We understand Ana is at the Sheriff's Office today for a meeting. We will keep you posted in the event that Ana heads out to Oklahoma.
What do you get when you give a sheriff absolute power and the Alabama Sheriff's Associations stronghold over the legislature? What do you do when all of the Alabama sheriffs who partake in inmate food funds refuse to comply with Alabama Open Records Requests? All powerful sheriffs who believe they are all powerful and above the law? Just to be fair to their is 11 sheriff's that do not partake of inmate food funds. To be even fairer we know that the Sheriff of Limestone County did partake of inmate food funds for many years prior to discontinuing the practice.
Did you know that sheriffs in the State of Alabama have so little supervision that they can literally steal inmate food money for years and forever without getting caught? You also have sheriff Ana Franklin who told multiple lies about how she got the $160,000.00 to invest in Performance Auto Sales. Franklin cashed the checks in July 2015. The auto sales paid out all the other investors to include Bones Wilson and Blake Robinson yet Franklin claims she didn't get her money back. One of her lame excuses for taking the money was a shortfall of $21,000.00 in the inmate food funds. By the way Performance Auto Sales did not file bankruptcy until early 2017.
Folks, Ana Franklin invested because she is a thief and a common criminal. Pure and simple.
Advocacy groups sue 49 Alabama sheriffs for withholding public records of leftover inmate food money.
How many of the rest of the sheriffs should be in the same shoes Ana is in?
Listen to Ana's lies.
