  •  The Coroner's office (none)
    has been a sore spot here for some time.  The current guy lost the GOP badly because he's lazy and incompetent.  I think he did as much political work on the job as real work, he was there so seldom.  Seven death cases still haven't been determined.

    His predecessor, who I'm ashamed to say was a Dem, did 41 months in Federal prison for corruption.  It was quite a story....   He demanded kickbacks from his employees, so they billed for phoney body pickups in order to get the extra cash for the kickbacks.  Supposedly all these deputies were transporting dead bodies, lots of them, in their personal cars.  Amazing they didn't get caught sooner, seeing the county's official death toll (including these phantom bodies) soared while he was in office.

    So, new blood in the office was a good line, and it was sorely needed.

    "My job is to protect the American people." George W. Bush. Did he?
