Folks with all the news floating around out there it is obvious that dirty politicians come in red and blue. That is to say red states and blue states. In Alabama, our sheriffs have made it clear that they will take hundreds of thousands of inmate food funds and that goes for democrat or republican. Gene Mitchell the Democrat, Franklin the Republican, and Sheriff Blakely Democrat. At least Blakely requested a legal opinion and stopped taking inmate food funds after approximately 17 terms. My Lord, how much money could one sheriff take in 17 years.
We in Morgan County have an opportunity to change the tide this year and stop the abuse of inmate food funds. Honestly, we do not believe we need it with the new sheriff but we must continue to fight across the state to stop sheriffs from taking inmate food funds. We are talking about millions of dollars.
We have heard stories about some sheriffs growing gardens for inmate food. Then hiring unscrupulous computer services, and selling other sheriffs things that they shouldn't. Very Strange. We believe a time is coming. Your time is November 6th. Vote YES on the Amendment that requires that all money allocated for inmate food be spent on inmate food only.
