This, via the Clayton County News-Daily, should come as no surprise to anyone following the debacle on the southside.
Clayton County Sheriff Victor Hill looted money from a drug forfeiture fund and a vending machine fund, spending it wildly, according to a suit filed by the Sheriff’s Office’s former accountant.
Let’s review, shall we? Snipers on the roof, illegal terminations, hostile take-over attempts, holding inmates double hostage – for paperwork, barring the press from public meetings, 17000 unserved warrants… shall I go on? (Whew! I need to take a little breather here.) He’s a busy fellow alright, especially when it comes to NOT doing the job he was elected for. Destruction seems to be right up his alley – of the rule of law, the citizen’s trust, public safety, accountability, respect, integrity – just pick one. Now Walking Small is running for a second term.
[Pam] Blasingim claims that when she and the legal advisor told the sheriff his spending was inappropriate, he would ask, “Can I go to jail?” When she told him she couldn’t justify expenses, in case of an audit, he allegedly said he wasn’t worried about an audit and she shouldn’t be either — she should just do what she was told.
My hope and prayer for Clayton County is that he loses in the primary. TOMORROW, TOMORROW, the primary’s TOMORROW, it’s only a DAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYY AAAAAAWWWWWWWWWWWAAAAAYYYY!!
UPDATE: At least he’s in a run-off. Unbelievable!
