Why is Sheriff hiding the compensation of his brother-in-law? (HCN)

So bumptious Brother-in-law CHARLES EDGAR MULLIGAN is the donee-beneficiary of payroll-padding by corrupt Sheriff DAVID BERNARD SHOAR, who legally changed his name from "HOAR" in 1994.

They might as well rename the Sheriff's office as "The Family Inn."

Or change their family name to CLAMPETT.

These hick hacks resemble "The Gang That Couldn't Shoot Straight."

Their  coverups of Officer-Involved Domestic Violence, the homicides of Michelle O'Connell, Andrea Sheldon, et al., and their misfeasance, malfeasance, nonfeasance, waste, fraud, abuse, flummery, dupery and nincompoopery require action from the FBI, and the voters.

Don't vote for anyone who takes money from SHOAR/HOAR, or developers, or defends their works and pomps.

This is the moral issue of our time and place.

Among local public officials, only one -- heroic St. Augustine Mayor Nancy Shaver -- has been wiling to take a stand.  The rest require spinal implants, apparently, or election opponents.

Kudos to Historic City News and Michael Gold for breaking this story.








Why is Sheriff hiding the compensation of his brother-in-law?

PATRICIA R GLEASON
This week, St Johns County Sheriff David Shoar explained in the press that the job of “public information officer” is not one “where you are out on patrol one day, and the next day … you’re it”.  Although, twenty years ago, that’s exactly how his latest retiree, Chuck Mulligan, came into the job.
Now, Shoar reportedly says, as of March 1st, he is going to continue paying the retired commander; this time as an “independent contractor”.  His reason is supposedly not just to help out the man whose brother, Pat, is married to Shoar’s sister-in-law, Connie, but Shoar was quoted in The St. Augustine Record saying he needs to bring Mulligan back for “about a year” to train up someone else in the agency to do his job.
St Johns County taxpayers are already paying nearly a half-million-dollars each year for these other St Johns County sheriff’s employees to already be trained:

Charles Edgar Mulligan, who turns 52-years-old in April, completes his 60-month maximum participation as a “DROP Member” in the Florida Retirement System this week.  Mulligan was 22-years-old when hired on January 4, 1988.  He was paid $85,161.00 a year, plus benefits, as a Commander.
He got there after being overlooked for promotion for twenty-five of his 30-years at the sheriff’s office.  Mulligan never advanced above the rank of sergeant until five-years-ago.  In 2013, without explanation, Shoar finally gave his extended family member the promotion he had been denied during his entire career under Neil J. Perry.
In the 2012 payroll records, Historic City News verified that Mulligan was only earning $58,903 a year as a Sergeant.  Then, in the next budget year, beginning October 1, 2013, Shoar made Mulligan a Commander, kicking his paycheck into overdrive — $81,120.00 per year plus benefits.
“It’s a transition away from full-time law enforcement,” Mulligan said in a quote to local news reporters.  “I’ll be in more of a civilian role within the agency.”
That means that when he returns to work on March 1 for the official start date in his new role, he will have traded in his traditional green uniform for civilian clothes.
Surprisingly (?) when Historic City News attempted to obtain the new employee documents that would indicate what, exactly, Mulligan would be doing and what he would be paid, we were clearly asking questions that Shoar would just as soon not explain.
At this time, we are in a back and forth with Public Records Custodian Bonnie Jimmerson.  We have made Florida First Amendment Foundation attorney Barbara Petersen aware of the incident.  A copy of email between us and Jimmerson has been forward to both Petersen and Special Counsel for Open Government, Patricia R Gleason Esq.
We will produce another segment for this story with more details as this investigation continues.

Evil, Racist Sheriff Lawrence O. Davis PRAISED on St. Johns County Sheriff DAVID SHOAR's website --1640 days after corrections requested.

Why it matters: Controversial St. Johns County, Florida Sheriff DAVID SHOAR is involved in an eight-year coverup of the fatal Michelle O'Connell shooting in the home of Deputy JEREMY BANKS. As exposed in The New York Times and PBS Frontline, he covered up the crime and called it a suicide, then sought to get FDLE Special Agent Rusty Ray Rodgers fired and prosecuted for doing his job, after SHOAR recruited him to investigate. SHOAR has three material false statements about Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and corrupt racist Sheriff L.O. Davis (1949-1970) on his website, and has never corrected them. Is Sheriff SHOAR a pathological liar?




On the 50th anniversary of the "I have a dream speech," I wrote Sheriff DAVID SHOAR about three baldfaced lies about racist Sheriff L.O. Davis and Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on SHOAR's website.

That was 1640 days ago (four years, five months and 26 days).  I wrote him again today.

UPDATE: As of midnight, February 23, 2018, there has still been NO response from white supremacist Republican St. Johns County Sheriff DAVID SHOAR, who legally changed his surname from "HOAR" in 1994.

As William F. Buckley, Jr. would say, "Why does baloney reject the grinder?"

Those lies are still on Sheriff SHOAR's website:
1. Falsely claiming Dr. King was arrested by federal agents;
2. Falsely claiming that Klansman L.O. Davis held the town together during civil rights protests, when federal courts found he knowingly hired KKK members who attacked blacks.
3. Falsely claiming that Davis was "exonerated" by the Florida Senate, which removed him by vote of 44-2.
Those lies are still on Sherif SHOAR's website today.

Here's the e-mail trail, followed by the full text of Sheriff DAVID SHOAR's idolatry and hagiography to a racist Klansman:

Dear Sheriff Shoar:
A. I wrote you about this issue for the first time on August 28, 2013, 50th anniversary of the "I have a dream" speech by Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

B. There are still three (3) material false statements on your website:

1. Dr. King was NOT arrested here In. St. Augustine, Florida by "federal agents."

2. Sheriff L.O. Davis was NOT exonerated -- Florida Senate removed him from office for corruption by vote of 44-2.
3. Sheriff L.O. Davis did NOT "hold the town together" -- he was a white supremacist and divided it, with KKK members on his payroll, the subject of remedial orders from federal courts.
C. Please respond to me by close of business today. 


Thank you.

With kindest regards, I am,
Sincerely yours,

Dear Sheriff Shoar:

We both love our Nation's Oldest City, St. Augustine, which stands between "hope and history." There are reasons today (50th anniversary of Dr. King's "I have a dream" speech) to be concerned that our history must be accurate.

A. Sheriff Shoar, it appears that both your SJCSO website and your 2012 Annual Report appear to glorify Sheriff L.O. Davis, with your 20th Century Sheriffs history section stating in haec verba:

"One major development that his tenure as Sheriff saw was the civil rights movement, a challenging time for our nation, state and county. In 1963, the Reverend Martin Luther King and his associates came to St. Augustine, the oldest city in the nation. St. Augustine became the site of many demonstrations. During one of these, Dr. King was arrested by Federal agents and booked into the St. Johns County Jail. Shortly afterwards, Dr. King and others were released from jail. 

The climate was stressful in those years, but with Sheriff Davis' leadership the community held together. This nation moved forward after the signing of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. 
Sheriff Davis was well respected in the community." (Emphasis added).  http://www.sjso.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/20th-cen-sheriffs.pdf
B. Thus, some questions occur:
1.  Does SJCSO have any research materials on Dr. King and Sheriff L.O. Davis that formed the basis of the statements about them on 
your website and in your 2012 Annual Report?  What are they?  Please provide citations.
2.  Who wrote the statements on Dr. King and Sheriff Davis in the "Sheriffs of the 20th Century" portion of  your website and in your Annual Report?  Quo vobis videtor?
3.  Are those persons aware of Davis' corruption and support of segregationists?  Were you?
4.  Your website section on "Sheriffs of the 20th Century" appears simultaneously to demean Dr. King and to glorify Sheriff L.O. Davis.  Why? The 2012 Annual Report also appears to glorify Davis.  Why?
5.  The SJCSO website section on "Sheriffs of the 20th Century" falsely asserts that Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was "arrested" here in St. Augustine by "federal agents." That never happened.  Local law enforcement arrested him.
6. How long has this materially false information about "federal agents" arresting Dr. King in St. Augustine appeared on our SJCSO website?  Who wrote it? For what purpose? 
7.  Are you planning to take it down?  When?  Please advise.
8.  The 2012 Annual Report says no taxpayer funds were used for its printing or distribution. Why not? 
9.  Who paid for printing and distribution of the report?  Please provide documents.
10.  Will you please retract and apologize publicly for the falsehoods in your name about "federal agents" arresting Dr. King, and for glorifying Davis, as you did for those threatening t-shirts you distributed in 2008?
Our Nation's Oldest City is now on the world stage -- we do not need to be embarassed by faux Fox News style Civil Rights "history" emanating from the SJCSO, lauding a segregationist and insulting both the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on the 50th anniversary of the "I have a dream" speech."   http://www.sjso.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/20th-cen-sheriffs.pdf
I look forward to hearing from you today by the close of business.
Thank you.
With kindest regards, I am,
Sincerely yours,
Ed

From Sheriff David Shoar's website re: Sheriffs of the 20th century, downloaded at 2 PM today:
(Lies marked in bold)

Sheriff Lawrence O. "L.O." Davis 1949 until 1970. Sheriff Davis held office for 21 years. During those years, society saw a changing culture.
In 1952, a new jail was completed and Sheriff Davis moved his headquarters from the old jail on McWilliams Street to the new jail on Lewis Speedway. It was during his tenure that uniforms were adopted. The incident prompting uniforms occurred with Deputy Kenny Masters.
It seems Deputy Masters was on the beach patrolling and found a man sleeping on the beach. Deputy Masters, being in civilian clothes, wearing a gun and a very small Sheriff's shield, approached the man. When the man awakened, he saw Deputy Masters' gun and thought he was being robbed. The man then reached for his gun, and Deputy Masters shot the man. Later at the hospital, Deputy Masters asked the
man why in the world did you go for a gun? The man said, "I thought your were trying to rob me."
The next day, Deputy Masters went down to the store, bought khaki work shirts and slacks, and pinned his shield on his shirt. Later Sheriff Davis got patches, and they were sewn onto the khaki shirt. From there, our current Sheriff's uniform developed into what it is today.
It was also during Sheriff Davis' time that the first marked patrol car was put on the street. Painted green and white with a star on the sides, the car was assigned to Deputy Noah Carter.
One major development that his tenure as Sheriff saw was the civil rights movement, a challenging time for our nation, state and county. In 1963, the Reverend Martin Luther King and his associates came to St. Augustine, the oldest city in the nation. St. Augustine became the site of many demonstrations. During one of these, Dr. King was arrested by Federal agents and booked into the St. Johns County Jail. Shortly afterwards, Dr. King and others were released from jail.
The climate was stressful in those years, but with Sheriff Davis' leadership the community held together. This nation moved forward after the signing of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
Sheriff Davis was well respected in the community. Many citizens tell stories of his kindness; taking bags of groceries to those who were in need, or helping others get jobs. Sheriff Davis had been a city police officer for approximately three years prior to taking the Office of Sheriff. He had a deep, abiding commitment to the youth of our county. Also, he was one of the founders of the Florida Sheriffs Boys Ranch, which grew from a small camp on the banks of the Suwannee River to a working ranch system,
serving thousands of Florida's children every year.
In 1970, then Governor Claude Kirk removed Sheriff Davis from office based on allegations made by several individuals. Subsequently, in a trial, Sheriff Davis was found innocent. Later, at hearings in Tallahassee in front of the Senate, Sheriff Davis was exonerated. By this time, Governor Kirk had appointed Dudley Garrett, to take Sheriff Davis' place.
In the 1972 election, "L.O." Davis tried to regain the office, but lost to Sheriff Garrett.
