    •  He is stating his refusal (0+ / 0-)

      to comply any future laws that he doesn't like. This in and of itself is dereliction of duty.

      •  mrb - maybe (0+ / 0-)

        But is is no crime to say you won't obey some proposal that isn't a law or even passed one house of Congress. If you were his lawyer you could characterize his letter as political speech displaying his opposition to the President's proposed legislation.

        This sheriff is a jerk, and my guess is that this is political grandstanding to use in his next re-election campaign. It would appear that the only way to remove him from office is to recall him, or beat him in the next election cycle.
