Picky, Picky, Picky

The Pensacola Beach Blogger really wants to rub it in just because because the FBI and IRS decided to arrest Okaloosa County Sheriff Charlie Morris while he was on vacation in Las Vegas.

The “Good Ol’ Boys” are shocked to think that Charlie might have had his hand in the cookie jar, along with his administrative director, Teresa Adams.

Here’s a hint: The county and the state are scrambling to cover budget shortfalls because of the GOPression, and the position of Sheriff doesn’t actually pay all that much [it’s not like he’s a football couch or someone important]. How in hell can he afford a vacation in Las Vegas [that no one actually knew he was taking, but, then, he doesn’t spend a lot of time in the county]?

Now we are going to have to have a special election that we can’t afford. Of course, unlike Charlie, we should assume he is innocent until he is convicted of something.

I’m sure he was just vacationing in Las Vegas to see the shows. Yeah, that’s the ticket:)

It gets worse, because the Chief Deputy was in Orlando at a conference and one of them should be in the county at all times.

It’s not like you can’t drive to Mississippi in a day if you like to gamble [or see a show].

Cookie jar… mmmmm! Time for a snack! Anybody seen Jill?

Don’t you know, Bryan, that “innocent until proven guilty” is soooo 20th-century these days?

I can tell you for a fact that Charlie Morris doesn’t believe in it.

He owes somebody big time. He could well be trying to cover margin calls as the market collapsed, but this sudden, unexplained trip to Vegas, doesn’t look good. The fact that the FBI picked him up there for arraignment makes it look like they knew more about what he was doing than anyone in this county. It would have been easy to wait for him to return. There must have been a reason, and I doubt his attorneys are going to be happy with Charlie’s defense.
