Blogger Comments: Sheriff Gene Mitchell recently admitted that he takes approximately 80K in inmate food funds that he claims are left over inmate food funds. Yet, while running for office in Lawrence County along with two other candidates he vowed he would not take inmate food funds. Since he is one of the 49 sheriffs who is under scrutiny for inmate food funds, is it any surprise that he lied? He also claims that when he was sheriff of Talladega County he did not take inmate food funds. If he lied in 2006 what makes us think that he is being honest about not taking inmate food funds from Tallageda County Sheriffs Office? Wasn't he also terminated from another position with the state for reason?
Why do we keep voting these liars into office? Folks, the amount of money these losers have taken over the years amounts to millions of dollars. Think about it? If a sheriff has been in office for 20+ years he/she could have taken several million dollars over the years. If Mitchell's take was approximately 960K over the last 12 years some of these folks could be close to a 2M dollar take.
Gene, you have potential. You and Ana make great liars.
