Under the category of people who have no apparent self-awareness or any internal meter that tells them when it’s time to just go away, former Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel is running to get his old job back. In fact, he’s holding a fundraiser tonight at a restaurant in Davie, Florida to raise cash from, well, we have no idea who’d want to contribute to this campaign.
But Israel thinks he did a helluva job while in office. When his failures of leadership became manifestly evident during the investigation following the Parkland massacre, his only response was, “Lions don’t care about the opinions of sheep.”
Tonight, the alleged king of the Broward County jungle will be holding a fundraiser to finance his effort to put himself back in charge of the 5400 employees who help to ensure the safety of almost 2 million people.
If you’re a Broward County resident, you may want to be there tonight. If so, publishedreporter.com has helpfully compiled just a few questions that, at minimum, Israel should answer as part of his quest to get his old job back. To those, we’d add just one more…Have you no shame?
