Putnam County Sheriff’s Scramble
Sheriff Kinney, you may want to take this number down: (386)-329-0800
It will come in handy when you report that somebody has stolen the identity of the Putnam County Sheriff! We even know who he is and where he is located! He goes by the alias “Gator,” and just like the piss-poor 1970s Burt Reynolds movie of the same name, involves political corruption in the Okefenokee Swamp!
Kinney, actually officially lost the Putnam County Sheriff’s race by razor thin margins in a rollercoaster recount that shifted the results multiple times. He was in court last week with substantial allegations of voter fraud and irregularities, none of which have been prosecuted or investigated by the “winning” Sheriff Gator.

WUFT was at the hearing and reported that the case casts new “doubts on race’s results.” It was revealed that the canvassing board Clear Ballot Audit system had found a discrepancy in the total number of vote-by-mail ballots tabulated. Additionally, it found that a Canvassing Board member was walking around with a thumb drive of “pretabulated” ballots for days!
At the November 10, 2016 meeting, the Canvassing Board announced that an additional 428 vote-by-mail ballots had not been included in the preliminary election night returns. The 428 Ballots had been tabulated prior to 7:00 P.M., on November 8, 2016…the tabulated results of the 428 Ballots were transferred from the ICC Scanner to a USB “thumb drive.” However, the tabulated results on the thumb drive were not properly uploaded to the election server until after the preliminary election night results were released on November 8, 2016.
Sheriff Gator shot down the allegations with an “aw shucks moment” worthy of an Oscar. “I don’t like it that convicted felons vote any more than the next person,” he told WUFT’s Eric Heubusch “…but we don’t know if those folks voted in the sheriff race.”
Sure we don’t……
The next hearing in the case will take place April 21.
