In the ongoing saga surrounding Clayton County Sheriff-elect Victor Hill, Democrat state Representative Darryl Jordan hurled insults towards sheriffs across Georgia in an op-ed piece written for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Jordan, who represents Clayton County in the Georgia House of Representatives made a shrill and vitriolic argument that Victor Hill should be allowed to serve as Sheriff of Clayton County while under felony indictment for a variety of charges.
The Georgia Sheriff's Association, according to the organization's website, consists of each sheriff representing each of Georgia's 159 counties. Article IX, Section 1, paragraph three of the Constitution of the State of Georgia reads, "The clerk of the superior court, judge of the probate court, sheriff, tax receiver, tax collector, and tax commissioner, where such office has replaced the tax receiver and tax collector, shall be elected by the qualified voters of their respective counties for terms of four years and shall have such qualifications, powers, and duties as provided by general law." [emphasis added].
This organization of elected Georgia sheriffs asked Governor Deal to suspend Victor Hill from office, pending the outcome of Hill's criminal trial.
Democrat Darryl Jordan is obviously opposed to Victor Hill being suspended from office, but that doesn't give the Jordan the right to insult and tell lies on sheriffs across Georgia.
