Where are they now? JOEL BOLANTE, SHOAR'S Ex-UnderSheriff, Now Teaching "Administrative Ethics," Studying for Ph.D.

"There are animals crashing around in th forest. I can hear them, but I can't see them [yet]. -- Senator Howard Henry Baker, Jr. during Watergate, 1973.

On June 30, 2015, in the midst of pending federal criminal investigations, Sheriff DAVID SHOAR lost his "left and right arms" -- ART MAY and JOEL BOLANTE retired. BOLANTE is now a full-time faculty member at Flagler College, teaching public administration programs as an Associate Professor in the program where serial political prevaricator JOE SAVIAK is Associate Director. Among the courses BOLANTE is teaching is ethics. Yes, ethics. Can't wait for him to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth about the O'Connell coverup in federal court.
