Sandra Hutchens is not the only Orange County sheriff trying to collect honorary Orange County sheriff's badges that a predecessor handed out to supporters. The Times Herald-Record, which covers the Hudson Valley of New York, has a story today on the crap their Orange County sheriff has gone through since announcing any courtesy shields issued by previous administrations should be returned.
Carl DuBois made that announcement upon taking office in 2003.
He just got three back from federal agents last week.
The feds recovered them from an alleged scamster and friend of the previous sheriff who has since been charged with bribery of a public official and conspiracy to commit visa fraud--and before you ask, yes, I am sure I am talking about Orange County, New York.
