Two Page One "Puff Pieces" Promoting Sheriff DAVID SHOAR
There are two page one puff pieces on the Front Page of The St. Augustine Record today, here and there. Wonder why? See below.
You have to laugh at the oleaginous puffery, flummery and dupery emitted by Jenna Carpenter and Stuart Korfhage in two separate Sheriff SHOAR-promiting hagiographic articles on the front page of today's St. Augustine Record. How gauche and louche and low can you go?
What do y'all reckon?
Could it be that SHOAR, who has not yet filed with the Supervisor of Elections, is suffering from PTSD secondary to the continuing fallout from The New York Times investigation of the Michelle O'Connell case, deadly shootings, and the FBI investigation of Sheriff DAVID BERNERD SHOAR f/k/a "HOAR?" Is that PTSD manifesting itself as a mania to be loved (by someone, even if just two jejune junior journalists)?
Here are links to Mayor Nancy Shaver's letter, written after Mr. Bogdanich's article (before she was Mayor), and to the wealth of journalistic evidence on the Michelle O'Connell shooting:
