Alfred Buckner Pittman IV , R.I.P.: REC member, helped Sheriff Shoar Close 2016 Sheriff's Race, Disenfranchising 100,000 Voters



Using two (2) phony write-in candidates, St. Johns County's Republicans re-elected in 2016 corrupt St. Johns County Sheriff DAVID SHOAR, who legally changed his name from "HOAR" in 1994.  A 1998 state constitutional amendment has been interpreted to deny Universal Primaries in races where any shill files to run as a phantom write-in. Shills file only to close Universal Primaries, thereby disenfranchising every Democrat and independent voter in St. Johns County,  That's there law in Florida, thanks to Tallahassee election lawyer Mark Herron and Republican former Secretary of State Katharine Harris. 

One of the two shills has passed away: Alfred Buckner Pittman, IV, Republican Executive Committee member, who responded to the call of the likes of ROBERT THORNTON SMITH, one of SJC REC's archachnid apparatchik reprobates, filing to run as a write-in for Sheriff in 2016, then withdrawing after Sheriff SHOAR defeated former deputy Debra Maynard, 

God forgive them, for they care not what they do -- destroy democracy in St. Johns County, helping wicked developers and Sheriff SHOAR to create and maintain oleaginous one-party political machine.

From St. Augustine Record:

Alfred Buckner Pittman IV 
Alfred Buckner Pittman IV of St. Augustine, FL, died peacefully on December 19, 2020, after a long fight with cardiovascular and kidney disease. His final few days were spent at the Hadlow Center for Caring in Jacksonville, surrounded by family. 
Alfred was born in Memphis, TN, on January 22, 1935, to Alfred Buckner Pittman III and Dorothy Laws Pittman. He attended Pentecost-Garrison School in Memphis through eighth grade, followed by The Choate School in Wallingford, CT, for high school. He graduated from the University of Virginia in 1957 with a B.A. in Economics, where he was an active member of Kappa Alpha Order fraternity. An athlete at UVA, he ran cross country and boxed, remaining undefeated his senior year. 
Upon graduation, Alfred served in the U.S. Army Reserves Medical Corps for six years. He worked for Harry L. Laws & Co., a sugar cane interest, in Port Allen and New Orleans, LA, followed by work in sales for Hanes Hosiery and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which transferred him to Dallas, TX. He later worked in agriculture and in commercial real estate, eventually retiring in St. Augustine to be near family. Alfred was a member of Trinity Episcopal Parish and a tireless volunteer for the St. Johns County Republican Party, where he served on the executive committee and was a Century Club member. 
Alfred was an avid golfer and loved the outdoors, a good fire, and a good drink, but his real passion was people. He never missed a chance to talk to anyone wherever or whenever the opportunity afforded, and he developed close relationships wherever life took him. 
Alfred is survived by his son Alfred Buckner Pittman V of Jacksonville, FL, daughter-in-law Laura Jane, and grandchildren Heather, Lillian, and William; his daughter Holly Pittman Kidwell of Richmond, VA, son-in-law Andrew, and grandchildren Camille and Andrew; and his sister Florence Pittman Hays and nephews Andrew Hays and Bradford Hays of Memphis, TN. 
A memorial service will be held at Trinity Episcopal Parish at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Community Hospice of Northeast Florida.
