Best Reason to Avoid Polk County: Sheriff Grady Judd

We got an out-of-control lawman on our hands, folks. Not content to let Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio retain the crown for biggest gasbag Fox News suckup in law enforcement, the camera-chasing Judd has blatantly flouted the constitution’s separation of church and state with his decision to give public property — in this case, the basketball hoops at the county jail — to churches (lawsuits are pending). Then he engaged in harassment and selective prosecution of the woman leading the charge against him. (Again, court cases still pending.) Judd is a media whore of the worst kind, a Bible-thumping, holier-than-thou asshole whose downfall we eagerly await.
