Gene it looks like some folks are tired of the nepotism within your office

New sheriff won't make brother chief deputy  
MOULTON — The new Lawrence County sheriff squelched rumors of possible nepotism on his first day in office.
Sheriff Gene Mitchell said he has no plans to hire his brothers, retired Moulton police officers.
Is Sheriff Gene Mitchell in violation of the County rules and regulations in the County handbook? specifically, Rule 1.2.1 Nepotism? 

First up is Reserve Deputy Ray Mitchell who is a cousin to Sheriff Gene Mitchell.  Ray is a fine fellow, many joke within the department with Ray being smart and such a good fellow if he is really 
a Mitchell. Ray is commonly referred to as Santa Claus! This is because Ray Mitchell is in violation of the department's policy on facial hair, a policy that investigators and drug task force agents are not allowed to violate. Employees routinely talk about if he was not a Mitchell he could not get away with policy violations. Even though Ray has never been to the police academy and is not a certified officer
he is issued a marked county vehicle to drive, even to drive home.  It hurts morale when one individual is allowed to violate the rules just because of his name and the fact he is family. Now the 
The sheriff will say Ray provides a service to the County, the question is does that give him the right to be the only person to violate certain rules of the department that other employees and reserves must follow or is it really only because he is cousin Ray?  More to come...


Reserve Ray Mitchell.

  1. Gene Mitchell, why do you use 8 and 12 year old pictures in all your ads and camion material? Even your new pamplet has one photo that goes back to the 1990'$ why? Gene what will your age be 4 years from now? 80 plus right?

    1. Why does that matter? A camion is a truck...??? Pamplet is spelled pamphlet. Sanders is over 70 years old. WTF? Do better.

    2. It proves he is a liar and deceitful. He is misleading the voters, he is a manipulator wanting them to think he is 64 when he is 78 that is false repensentation. If he will do that in a campaign what will he do under oath in a courtroom? Lie? Or does he only lie in campaign related issues. Mr. Sharp just posted about his integrity, these actions show what his integrity really is. My experience is a liar is a liar. That's why it matters. Maybe the spelling is a little better, I will try and slow down in the future.

    3. Just shows what gene thinks about the people of lawrence county that he thinks he is so much smarter than everyone else that he can pull the wool over our eyes with these false actions.

  2. This is just another lie, will only serve one term - false, will not keep jail food money - false, will not hire brothers - false. Time for people in LC to be aware of the facts and truth!

    1. Extra jail food money was spent on vehicles for the Sheriff's Dept. Truth! Who is worried about how well criminals eat when they are in jail? Criminals.

    2. Again, he said he would not keep it in an article in the decatur daily September 2006, so that means he lied again, I believe I see a pattern, lies about everything. First of all I think that is 100% a lie about trucks or did he lie when he said in the paper trucks were bought with pistol permit money. Two stories, you said trucks were bought with jail food money, gene said they were bought with pistol permit money, who is lying you or him? I just busted your ass in case you didn't know.and on another note is it more important for investigators to ride back and forth home in 4 door Chevrolet trucks or hire more jailers so one jailer is not on the floor alone with 168 inmates? I think we see where mr mitchells priorities are if, I repeat if you are telling the truth then according to you gene is lying.

    3. Gene Mitchell is going to pass out when he sees what you have done to him, you better hope he doesn't find out who you are. You are exposing him more than I ever could. I love it.

    4. If you are going to represent, defend or speak for Gene Mitchell I would suggest you talk with him and familiarize yourself with his positions and past statements on issues especially when he had made those statements to the media. When you offer a position that directly contradicts his stated position it does him more harm than good and it either proves he is not being honest or destroys your credibility because it shows you are not in the loop and do not know what you are talking about. Here you and gene have two different versions of the same story.

      Delete
    5. Why does gene never defend himself, he always has others out front speaking for him. Does he not feel that he is capable of defending himself or explaining his actions or is he just weak? I guess if he's hiding behind someone's skirt tail, he can have applause able deniability.

      Delete
    6. Gene going to skin your ass up for making him look like a liar and fool. Google sheriff buys 5 trucks, decatur daily March 22, 2017. Boom!!! Article written by Mike wetzel who's son is the sheriff's intern. That's a story in itself. The reporter writing all these favorable articles for the sheriff, his son is an intern, I wonder if there is any media bias or fake news coming out of that operation. But next time if you don't know what the hell you talking about stay out of it, this is big boy league.

  3. Am I reading this correctly? Has Gene committed a crime hiring his two brothers? If this is right he has committed two misdemeanor crimes? Will the attorney general look into this?

  4. This article is from The Decatur Daily, January 17, 2007 if anyone would like to verify (Tez). Tez have you read any misinformation that you have to correct in this blog?

    3. Better late than never! Tell him to exolain. Just shows he is a habitual liar.

    4. So you are admitting gene is a liar, your just saying it doesn't matter since no other candidate raised the issue, boy that was a good response.

    5. I'm saying 11 years...that is all. If he did something illegal it wouldn't take an opposing candidate to raise the issue. I did not ever say Gene was a liar. You must have been raised in LC. Idiot.

    1. The word is envision. I would hope that his supporters can spell better than his opponents. His health is fine. His current opponent is over 70. What exactly is your point?

    2. He obviously has an issue with his age, he is the one who is using 12 year old photos and lied and told the daily he was 70 years old a few months ago, decatur daily was notified that he had lied to them and gave them proof that he had lied, ask him about it. Max has not lied and used 12 year old photos. That's the point, got it?

    3. Gene is the one lying about his age. If he wasnt self concious about being 78 years old he wouldn't be doing all this crap to try and hide his age. He will be well over 80 in four years.

    4. You say gene is fine, he has not released his medical records or addressed his health, also gene is the one who will be well over 80 in four years.

  8. Gene, according to our sources Mose Jones received prefential treatment when he was arrested a few years back that other minorities in district 1 don't receive. Is that true and why was he treated different than other minorities? The people of red bank want to know. So Tez can answer this on your campaign fb page. We will be waiting. This is coming out.

  9. I think it is time we dig into the nuts and bolts of Genes budget ($) numbers. I still don't see how he cut over four thousand dollars from his budget and only fired one employee shannon holland. GENE do you care to explain that, give an itemized list of exact cuts and dollar amounts to come up with almost a half million in cuts. Or was there not that amount of cuts which I think is the truth.

    1. Four hundred thousand, $400,000.00 in cuts? I don't think so. I think this is some of that Montgomery voo-do arithmetic with a touch of smoke and mirrors.

    3. Smart enough, it's coming later. You have no comment about mose jones arrest / cover up? Why aren't all minorities treated the same way mose was treaated? I will wait for your reply.

  10. Tez have you corrected the misinformation in today's and the fb arguing blog? No because it is all 100% accurate right! Also I haven't seen your correction to the misinformation about the lie of the money given to the republican, why? Is it because you got caught lying again?

  11. Several points here: first gene had to go out of the county to find a law enforcement officer willing to publicly endorse him, that's sad, second he talks of genes honesty and integrity, well there is fact after fact that shows otherwise, are you going to take what someone says from another county or what you read with your own eyes? A. I will only serve one term, I will not hire my brothers, I will not keep left over jail food money, I did not give john merrill a campaign donation, untruths under oath. These are gene mitchells own words and actions not someone elses. As for limited resources, why is he promoting people to lts and cats when he says he has no money, he only cut one that's right one empliyee. He has plenty of money he just chooses to have more chiefs than indians, he chooses to lie and hire his brothers as the two highest paid positions in the sheriff's department. Buying brand new 4 door Chevrolet Silverado pickup with all the bees and whistles for his investigators. Waste, waste, waste. Poor management of resources. As for leader, if walking around with a notebook in your arm is leadership well be it. We know gene better than an outsider, we see it day in and day out. Gene is desperate!

  12. How much is gene mitchells budget today than Bryan hills in 2006? Lying gene mitchell. No one says you have to have top of the line vehicles etc if you have no money. No one says you have to have more supervisors than deputies without rank. Those are chooses.which are poor leadership decisions. No one says you have to have family drawing county checks and OVERTIME with no official duties. This is the real gene mitchell.

  13. This is old news from his first election. He never made his brother chief deputy. Gene has former and current employees endorsing him. Everything else in these posts is coming straight from Sanders. AND it's a Morgan County site. Is this the only place you can be anonymous Sanders? You are in the wrong county. I have lived in this county for over 30 years. I have known people that were questionable and/or knew people that were. This whole time I heard about how crooked Sanders was. If you want to go to old news, go back to when Sanders was a PO and took bribes to keep people out of jail. I know one personally. Yeah, that's the Sheriff we need. I know if he gets elected everything will be crooked. And if you are worried about Mitchell's age, Sanders is 71. No Spring chicken. All of these comments are one sided and coming from Sanders. And they are all anonymous. I support Gene Mitchell 100% and have had experience with him, his deputies, his investigators, and his DTF. If Sanders gets elected I guess I will just have to move. LC will go to Hell in a handbasket. And I guess I should move since I don't post Anonymous. Pretty sure I'm just talking to Max. I don't believe any of these comments came from anyone else.

    1. What is the highest rank in the sheriff's department? Colonel? Who is the colonel? Kenneth mitchell? Is kenneth office in the same location as everyother chief deputy since new jail opened? Yes. Does he park where every other chief deputy has parked? Yes. I thought he was a balaiff? But he never is at the courthouse. How can he be a balaiff and stay at sheriff's office? More lies proven, so you are admitting he hired his brothers after he said he would not? If he is no

  16. Gene, Just seen your AD. The political process can get ugly? So when you say something to the newspapers and then your words are made public during a campaign and that is ugly? Was it ugly when you said it? What smears and attacks, again do you not remember saying these things? I mean the newspaper articles are real you can read them, they are all your words so again how is that smears and personal attacks to repeat what you said and what you did. this is no ones fault but yours if you do not like it. you should not have done and said those things thinking no one would ever know. Is it smears and personal ugly attacks to question how you assign personnel at the Sheriffs Department? No it is not. none of this is. But you have no vision and so you revert to what you have did in every single campaign and that is paint your opponent in a negative way to try and make him out to be a bad person when he is not. How do you know it is the candidate? is his name on anything? No and you know it, just your way of negative politics and trying to destroy your opponent without it appearing what you are up to.

    ReplyDelete
  17. You say you have always tried to run a positive campaign, yeah to the public but what about behind the scenes. just one example "video". What is your positive campaign? every single ad and fb post you are talking about how bad your opponent is and accusing him of running a negative and ugly campaign without any proof of such, do you consider this a positive? This is not positive, this is a slick way of running a negative campaign. We are not dumb.

  18. Again smear tactics? so the truth is smear tactics?

  19. Gene how old is the photo in the ad? 8 or 12 years old? just curious. Oh im sorry, i didnt mean to be negative by pointing out your using a 12 year old photo to try and fool the voters on your age because you dont want them to realize you will be over 80 years old in four years.

  20. This is Gene Mitchell all the way! I guess when you have nothing positive you can say, you just pretend to be a victim....�� Sometimes you just need to grow up & move on.
    I’m truly amazed at how many adults like to play the victim. Always defending yourself against your own paranoia. I would hate to be so miserable.

  21. Gene would you please, please list here or in the paper or on facebook ANY and ALL things that Max has did that you consider Ugly, smear or personal attack or tactics against you, please we beg you.

    Now bear in mind we say Max not his supporters. He is not responsible for his supporters just like your not responsible for yours. I do believe you are taking the actions of people who may just not like you and may not even be supporting Max but just has an issue with you and trying to tie it to Max. So go ahead and lay out the list and lets get this over with. Thanks.

  22. Gene Mitchell, In the AP news article on August 3, 1996 by Phillip Rawls, was it Ugly, personal attacks or smear tactics when you, Bobby Davis and Phil Williams compiled records that you all said will prove James ran an administration of broken promises, double standards, power grabbing and back stabbing? I find this article interesting. Seems when you attack a elected official it is ok but when you are attacked as an elected official for similar issues that you lashed out at James about it is now wrong. Why was it right in 1996 and wrong in 2018? That sounds like a double standard to me. Google the article for anyone who wants proof when Gene says this is bogus like he does everything else that is fact about him that he doesn't like.

    1. In the same AP news article of Aug. 3, 1996, Your attorney Tommy Gallion said, I quote "They (Mitchell, Davis and Williams) are going to rock state government", end quote. again this i guess was all good clean politics in 1996 when you were the one throwing the rock but now that you are on the receiving end, its ugly, smear, and personal attacks, man you are out there!!! You seem to have a short memory. What are your supporters going to think when they find out how you can get down in the mud with the best of them in these campaigns or use too, now your Mr. Clean Gene!

  27. Butch byers campaigning harder for ole Eugene than eugene is for himself. You would think employees would not get actively involved in campaigns. Do good on one case and do absolutely nothing on others, the working of a few cases does not excuse all the lack of work on others. Also you hurt your credibility when you try and make it look like eugene is doing all this stuff when everyone knows he is not. #honesty
