Good work by USDOJ and FBI and FDLE. A Panhandle Republican stronghold in "Lower Alabama," Holmes County has 10,836 registered voters. Former Holmes County Clerk of Courts and Comptroller KYLE MARTIN HUDSON is accused of stealing about $1 from each of them, for a total of $6800.
Waiting on indictments of Sheriff DAVID SHOAR, who legally changed his name from "HOAR" in 1994.
I reported SHOAR to USDOJ Inspector General over fraud issues involving $702,771 in embezzlement by his hand-picked Finance Director Raye Brutnell, and the sweetheart contract, or memorandum of understanding, that SHOAR concealed for a year from St. Johns County Commissioners on up to $2 million for a shooting range for use by FBI agents in Gainesville, Jacksonville and Daytona Beach. Commissioners were pressured to approve the MOU in August, as a last-minute "red folder" agenda item, with County Attorney PATRICK FRANCIS McCORMACK trying to snatch back my copy.
Waste, fraud and abuse, misfeasance, malfeasance, flummery, dupery and nincompoopery? You tell me.
SHOAR is a puppet who says developers are "good people."
SHOAR covered up the September 2, 2010 homicide of Michelle O'Connell in the home of Deputy JEREMY BANKS, a crime reported extensively in The New York Times, with SHOAR attempting to ruin the career and lives of Deputy Debra Maynard and FDLE Special Agent Rusty Ray Rodgers in retaliation for their honest investigative work. I have nominated both former Deputy Maynard and Special Agent Rodgers for law enforcement first responder award honors.
I'm glad that USDOJ and FBI and FDLE got to the bottom of the $6800 allegedly stolen by former Holmes County Clerk of Courts and Comptroller KYLE MARTIN HUDSON:
