Blogger Comments:  Looks like ole Gene Mitchell is showing more of his true colors.  Whatever happened to having an orderly transition?  This just shows what kind of person Gene Mitchell is and has been most likely for a very long time.  One of our sources says the following:

The article in Decatur Daily today, Just days after losing the election Gene ordered 7 new Tahoes at a cost $224,000.00 from the discretionary accounts. He ordered silver. He did not consult with Mr. Sanders, said he was not obligated to. Mr. Sanders had made it known he wanted to change the color scheme away from the current state trooper look back to a more traditional sheriff color. The funds came from pistol permit, work release, drug seizure, and jail commissary. What a piece of work. I was told last night he has yet to talk or communicate with Mr. Sanders.

  1. Well Gene Mitchell has been forced out of the last two jobs he has had. Fob James forced him out of DPS in 1996 and the voters forced him out of Lawrence County Sheriff's Office.

  2. I hope Max does change the colors back to a traditional sheriff color of brown and get away from what Gene has did in trying to make the sheriff's office look like the state troopers.

  3. Gene is a poor looser and vengeful, he can't accept he got his ass beat by a first time candidate. It is so sorry not to work for a smooth transition. Gene said he left $150,000.00 in account but by the time those vehicles are fully equipped and Genes name is took off everything that account will be close to zero. Gene wants Mr. Sanders and the sheriff's office to fail which again tells what kind of a person he really is. He has fooled folks for 12 years but now we know. Jus a silver tongue montgomery politician.

    1. I wonder if it has hit Gene that he is a has been, the only people who are going to walk out are those who were not being retained in the first place. This is a case of your fired, no I quit, lol. Gene putting a burden on employees and their families to try an prove a point, so sad.

  5. Wonder why Ana didn't throw a retirement party for herself? Because no one would show up except her little band of thieves and crooks.

  6. I am so glad the people of lawrence county are getting to see behind the veneer of Gene Mitchell to see what a sore looser and petty person he is by spending all the money he can before he leaves office, bullying employees who supported him into not even apply with new administration and walk out vs swallowing a little pride and do what is best to provide for themselves and their families. Gene going back to his prairie when this is all over and those employees will be hung out to dry. So petty for this short little man who has fallen so far at the hands of a political newcomer.

  7. Seen on facebook where gene is loaning the county discretionary money to make payroll and they did not pay it back, isn't that against the law? Can't that money only be used for specific purposes? Also Heather Coker the reason gene has so much money in pistol permit is because he doubled the fee to $20 on the backs of the people of lawrence county.

  8. So how did gene mitchells brothers retire from the sheriff's office if gene never hired them which is what he often said and even put in the paper? Yet today in the decatur daily it said his brothers kenneth and curtis are retiring from sheriff's department. Gene why did you lie to us for 12 years about your brothers? How much money did they make off the county during those 12 years? Lies, lies and more lies by Gene Mitchell.

  10. Seen Genes story on channel 31, the one comment about you only get to pick the color when your sheriff and he's not sheriff till next week, that tells the whole story of just what a snake in the grass gene mitchell is, a petty and vengeful little man. Also said he planned to order them before the election and he did not plan on loosing, ok gene let's go with that, but the problem is you did loose and you ordered the vehicles after you got beat and not prior to the election. Gene why have you not returned Mr. Sanders phone calls? Why have you not reached out to or had a single conversation with Mr. Sanders since the election? All this shows what your character really is Gene since the veneer has been knocked off.
