Under FBI investigation, three-term Sheriff DAVID SHOAR f/k/a HOAR faces re-election in an illegally closed primary on August 30, 2016.
Even among Republicans, Sheriff DAVID SHOAR has worn out his welcome.
People respond: Eww, he's a politician.
A crooked one, fully capable of lying, cheating and covering up crimes.
ILLEGAL WIRETAPPING: Controversial St. Johns County Sheriff DAVID SHOAR et pals. called it a frivolous lawsuit, but two federal courts and four federal judges ruled the Sheriff's electronic surveillance of attorneys and clients at the Sheriff's Department illegal and unconstitutional. Sheriff SHOAR is a lawbreaker, one under investigation by FBI.
Sheriff DAVID SHOAR signed a letter admitting that his staff spent some 300 hours assisting the Mosquito Control Commission on its controversial helicopter selection. What? SHOAR conned the Anastasia Mosquito Control Commission of St. Johns County to purchase a no-bid luxury $1.8 million jet TEXTRON BELL helicopter. We, the People halted this corruption in 2007. SHOAR admitted to his role years later, in a threatening letter to Mosquito Control Commission.
SHERIFF SHOAR resembles President RICHARD MILHOUS NIXON on painkillers and steroids.
Oceans of emotion. Lots of anger. Narcissism. Sociopathic tendencies.
After her family had Michelle O'Connell's body exhumed and autopsied, proving murder, SHOAR issued a middle-of-the-night angry press release, accusing the family of "molesting" the body. After the Dallas police shootings, SHOAR issued a disturbing video, preaching anger, not healing:
SHOAR is diabolical in his unhinged opposition to body cameras -- he says cops don't need to be watched. Oh, really?
Look around: lots of SHOAR billboards. Lots of SHOAR signs -- on commercial property.
The Establishment wants their puppet re-elected. They don't want consumer fraud prosecuted.
Sick developer puppet DAVID SHOAR's bagmen, lobbyists and bundlers have raised more than $253,000 -- an obscene, piggy, predictable quarter of a million dollars -- for a Sheriff's race in a county where 90,000 mostly white Republicans can vote for Sheriff (due to underhanded Republican recruitment of phony write-in candidates, violating the Fifteenth Amendment and Article VI, Section 5(b) of Florida's Constitution).
Yet Sheriff SHOAR almost lost an online poll on the website of The St. Augustine Record, where Debra Maynard led for hours Friday, August 12, 2016.
Unwanted Sheriff DAVID SHOAR reminds me of the incumbent California U.S. Senator in the movie, The Candidate, or the Frank Skeffington character (based on James Michael Curley) in Edwin O'Connor's novel and movie The Last Hurrah.
