“No one in your county has more power than your sheriff — not the Legislature, not Congress, not even the president of the United States, according to author and former Graham County, Ariz., Sheriff Richard Mack,” according to a press release introducing Mack the last time he came to town — in 2013. The event was hosted by The Nevada County Republican Women Federated.
Mack’s extremist views are outlined here and here. Sheriff Royal was going to introduce Mack at that event, but he dropped the plans after learning more about his beliefs. More background on some of Mack’s admirers are here.
And now “Sheriff” Mack is riding back into town. Mack will host a Nevada County Tea Party “Candidate Forum” on March 23 at the Foothill Event Center, according to the group’s website. “There’s going to be a NEW SHERIFF IN TOWN this June! Will he or she keep their Oaths of Office?” it continues.
I can’t think of a more inappropriate host.
