In the middle of this Sheriff's race, there is an ongoing corruption investigation within the Sheriff's office.  While on the surface it seems to be a corruption investigation, it goes deeper than that.  The investigation highlights failures in leadership, from the basic low-level supervisors, to upper management.  So far, three low-level deputies have been arrested, and two others fired.

Over my career, I've been involved in a couple of corruption investigations.  One, in the early 80s, led to the arrest and conviction of a sitting Sheriff.  He did a stretch of hard-time for that debacle.

This investigation is getting interesting.  It may be that one of the major players is also a candidate in this race, and is the guy that the sitting Sheriff has endorsed to take his place.

Yeah, it is starting to get interesting.

Something stinks in the Sheriff's office in Rapides Parish. That was a pretty flabbergasting piece of video. Somebody needs to teach Sheriff Hilton about the meaning of "The Buck Stops Here". What a piss poor example of leadership.
Good luck in the election - and there's a big cleanup and rebuilding job ahead!
