More Lies From Politicians? One Voter Claims "Yes"
CLEWISTON, FL. -- Rick Hornsby, candidate for Hendry County Sheriff, one of two self-described Sheriff candidates with a net worth of over $1,000,000, placed a large ad in print newspapers this week, prompting this "letters to the editor" response from a voter:
I was holding you in high regard until I found out that you were lying to the voters of Hendry County.
I looked at your candidate comparison sheet in this weeks paper and could not believe the things you had printed to make yourself look better than the other candidates.
1) You have not lived in Hendry County all your life. You have lived in West Palm Beach for over 12 years and just moved back to Hendry County approx.3 years ago
2) You were only in the service for 13 months, of which only 7 months was active duty. Ronnie Lee was in the Army and Marines for over 20 years of active"oversea"duties,then became active in the reserves
3) You say and now have printed that you are the only dual certified candidate, that means certified Law Enforcement and Correctional Officer. Florida Department of.Law Enforcement records indicate that you have not been certified in Corrections since 1994. In order to get re-certified, you would have to go through the whole school again, which would be 3 1/2 months long.
Considering these grossly misleading claims, we are wondering what else you are saying to deceive the voter's. Also, with all your credentials, why are you still a "traffic cop"?
Why did you lie? You were doing so well until the truth came out. Glad I found out before I voted!
