Sheriff Mike Carona Has Resigned

What a pleasant surprise it was to hear the news on KFI while driving into work this morning that Mike Carona is resigning. I knew something was brewing about this. The 60 day paid leave stunt was a farce just to collect a paycheck for a few extra months and see how much political heat developed. I guess we know the answer today by his resignation. This resignation completely vindicates Lt. Bill Hunt now. There will be an interim appointment made by the Board of Supervisors. I call on them to install Lt. Hunt immediately as the new Sheriff. I'll have more thoughts on this story later tonight when I get home.

    Well his choice to succeed him got rubber stamped by the Board of Supervisors.

    That's to bad. At least it's early in the process. I just hope they give Bill Hunt a fair shake.

    Two questions:

    1. When is Sheriff Carona's retirement dinner?

    2. Does Carona have to pay taxes on
    the pro bono (free) legal services
    that he receives?

    Chaz
