H/T to the Daily Jolt over at the AJC for this one.

Apparently former Dekalb County CEO, Vernon Jones,  has announced that he is running for the open Sheriff seat in DeKalb County.

Jones will become at least the sixth candidate running to replace Brown, who after 12 years as sheriff has his sights set on higher office. Jones plans to center his campaign around being a more responsive sheriff. But he also brings with him a long trail of controversies, none the least the recent investigation into corruption in DeKalb.

We can always count on Snuggles to liven up any campaign season. We expect great things from him in 2014.

My how time flies, we must be at April 1, 2014 already. ;)
Are sure the quote isn’t ” a more repulsive sheriff”?

Well…he is familiar with the DeKalb County DA’s office and the State’s Ethics laws…so he’s got that going for him, which is nice.

Add to the list of items he violates, Dekalb Code of Ordinances.

Campaign contributions may be sent to the Committee to Re-Teflon Vernon Jones.

Fox – Henhouse

It is more noteworthy that the citizens of DeKalb would even consider him a valid candidate.

maybe they don’t….or they incorporate so they won’t have to.

Why do scenes from “Blazing Saddles” suddenly come to mind?

Scott65 December 30, 2013 at 7:10 pm

LOL…thats funny. I dont picture Vern gettin very far on a horse (unless its a luxury horse, with a driver…and 5 security officers thrown in just to be sure)

NoTeabagging December 31, 2013 at 10:04 am

Vern loves his posse, fer sure!

OK…who made this up to give everyone a good laugh…cause it sure gave me one. He cant even START to think he could win.

I’m not laughing. There’s the example of Victor Hill to consider.

Jones would be another Sydney Dorsey crook. The man is warped.
