Still No Sheriff Candidate at Callahan County

| May 2, 2020

Cliff Griffin

I’m sure y’all remember the Stolen Valor Bobbsey Twins, Rick Jowers and Leroy Foley. Both were running for Sheriff of Callahan County, Texas, and both were outed for embellishing their military service. Both have resigned from the race, and neither are now employed at the Callahan County Sheriff’s Office.

Here’s a refresher:

The Republican Party will have to nominate a replacement candidate after June 15.

Meet Taylor County Police Sergeant Cliff Griffin.

Taylor Co. Sheriff’s Office Sgt. withdraws from Callahan Co. Sheriff’s race

by Jamie Burch

ABILENE, Texas — A sergeant with the Taylor County Sheriff’s Office took his hat out of the race for Callahan County Sheriff.

Sgt. Cliff Griffin said Thursday that he withdrew his name from consideration for the Republican Party nomination.

“The decrease in pay I would take has proved to be too high and without a secondary income would prove to be a tremendous burden upon my family,” said Griffin. “I am lucky to currently be working for an outstanding organization that has treated me amazingly well and has given me the opportunity for a great future within it.”

Griffin would take a $16,000 pay cut as sheriff.

Callahan Country Sheriff’s salary: $40,574.53

Current salary: $56,500

Former Chief Deputy Rick Jowers won the Republican primary in March, but withdrew his name amid a stolen valor allegation.

A write-in candidate could file to run between July 27 and Aug. 25.

At least he’s quitting for monetary reason, not embellishing his military service, if any. Seems Callahan County should consider sweetening the Sheriff’s salary to attract more qualified candidates. Maybe they could throw a Chili cook-off. Read the entire article here: KTXS

Thanks, Snake.

    Okay. I’ll do it. I’ll be Sheriff of Callahan County, and run the brake pad factory too. Because I side with, The American Working Man.

    The only embellishment I will admit to is penis size, and my wife has promised to keep it a secret, so as not to be mobbed by female porn stars. I swear to God, that it really is 8″. Just ask my wife. She believes me…

      This explains the asymmetric kitchen curtains.

      Didn’t Commissar say he had law enforcement experience? Could you see him as sheriff? 😀

        Do you have any idea what Guinness feels like when it’s shot through your nose?

        I do.

          Guinness yah say? I am the CEO of Pooper’s Pub. I have two friends who think that I would make a good Sherrif. The first one is a proud woman that runs a business. The other one is the CEO of All Points Logistics.

  2. Penguinman000 says:

    Never heard of a sheriff being paid that little. Round these parts most sheriffs make $100k +

    I can’t imagine what they pay their deputies. Holy schnikes.

  3. Daisy Cutter says:

    I wonder if they’ve thought of advertising on Craig’s List?

    At this point, they may have to think outside the box.

  4. Green Thumb says:

    Dude has to do what dude has to do.

    But those other two losers really screwed the county.

    Maybe they can entice “Turd” Bolling from Ambassador Worldwide Protection Agency (both National and International) to toss his hat in the ring…?

  5. Combat Historian says:

    Our own squidgull Larsy stated he was once a deputy sheriff in Texas. Larsy should apply for the job. The local Callahan county GOP has so fucked this up that they really do deserve a Berzerkly-bred Bernie Bro Marxist as the local sheriff. At least we’ll be fairly certain that Larsy won’t be lying about his military record; as far as I know, Larsy is a Marxist, but not a poser…

    • HMCS(FMF) ret says:

      Can you imagine how he would “remake” the department? All of that sensitivity training and other “mandatory forced fun” that he would subject his underlings to?

      • Green Thumb says:

        Toss those two tossers in the toss up (lock up) and let them get tossed. Salads or otherwise.

        Give the known False Commander “Phony” Phil Monkress (CEO of All-Points Logistics) the fraudulently obtained taxpayer-funded contract to film it. Make it a documentary! At this point, Phildo is making some noise!

        At least it will give him something to do as he avoids call seeking clarification concerning hos highly questionable Native America, Navy SEAL and Law Enforcement claims.

        Maybe they got their (The Losers of Callahan County) arrest right? Who knows?

        But even if a straight up G convicted felon (previous) was put into custody by one of these two clowns, then he/she deserves another look. Just being fair.

        Curious how tough they are after taking a bullet for their country…

      • Commissar Pooper's Narcissism says:

        Easy. I made a lot of tips as a deputy. I still have my brass knuckles too, they helped me make my tips. Just imagine how many tips my deputies would bring in if I was the sheriff. I get a cut. I can not wait to tell my deputy stories and how we made tips.

        Do not forget to tip your deputies.

  6. NHSparky says:

    They fucked themselves over for a $40k job?

    People are making more than that on unemployment right now.

  7. Skippy says:

    The Callahan County circus is almost finished
    What a trip this thing has been

  8. Green Thumb says:

    The more I think about it, these two losers could go to work for “Turd” Bolling and Ambassador Worldwide Protection Agency (both National and International).

    Their skill set is probably on par with what Turd has on the payroll.

    “Maybe they could throw a Chili Cookoff.” Not a bad idea. At least it could raise the Awareness. It will show how much “Les” they are paid. Might put a Brown stain on the community tho.
