Caught in more lies, Jones just can’t stop! Either Scott Jones and Kris Palmer cannot remember the lies they just told, or they are so used to lying that they don’t care because they believe the public is just that stupid.
October 26, 2017 – Kris Palmer announces his run for Sheriff. Scott Jones exclaims Palmer has his “absolute confidence and support.”
October 27 – December 13, 2017 – Kris Palmer suddenly becomes the Sheriff’s department official representative to attend all community events, lead the pledge of allegiance, and public spokesperson as the department attempts to influence the outcome of Palmer’s political campaign. Rainbow farts are coming out of Palmer’s ass, as Scott Jones and John McGinness prop-up Palmer as the anointed Golden Boy for the department.
December 14, 2017 – Scott Jones files candidacy papers to run for Sheriff in 2018, still plagued by his own checkered history (1, 8, 9, 10), ongoing scandals after scandal, and failed leadership. When Scott Jones was caught hanging out with known felons who were running methamphetamine and identity theft ring out of the office, and Jones was receiving free office space and gifts from them in exchange for confidential information about Sacramento Sheriff’s records and investigations, that should have been the end of this guy. (Download the sealed court documents that John McGinness helped to bury)
January 16, 2018 – (32 days later) Palmer announces that “10 days ago” he decided not to run for “personal reasons“. Apparently there was so much dirt on him, that no amount of ajax could help to keep him clean. Jones claims there is no-one else who is competent (in his more than 1500 sworn deputies and 164 reserves), and so he is going to step-up to save the department from “uncertainty”.
Scott Jones was stepping down, Kris Palmer was to replace him. Jones knew Palmer was out of the race back in mid-December, but Palmer announces in mid-January (32 days later), saying they all only just found out 10 days ago.
Flagrant. Lies. Again.
Accuracy and accountability elude Sheriff Scott Jones. The Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department needs a complete leadership overhaul, beginning with who is elected as Sheriff. It is going to take someone from the outside to come in and clean up the department. An insider, who has been part of the problem, can never be expected to bring about the changes necessary to bring forth the integrity, transparency, and equality to the Department that Sacramento taxpayers deserve.
