Rogue Deputy Suspended?
It is Bachik who managed to piss off the entire court - all nine judges - after accusing them of playing favorites. Even I could never do that, and I've really tried. They're still nice to me. But they actually issued an order banning Bachik from their courtrooms. When Sheriff Randy Miller refused to tell the judges to pound sand, Bachik started a movement to have him fired. In addition, he wants the Home Rule Charter changed to make the Sheriff an elected position. That way, he can install some of his public sector union buds. The hell with professionalism.
Other deputies are embarrassed by the guy. "He makes us all look bad," one deputy told me. "He's not representing the union," added another.
Well, apparently, Tom has been suspended. That's the word from some deputies who would prefer not to be named.
You just can't go around calling your boss a liar, Tom. That's a little more serious than naughty emails.
