Rockingham county sheriff's border wall funding scam

With Hurricane Flo, you might have missed this recent news story, which you can file under "There's a Sucker Born Every Minute".

Rockingham Sheriff Sam Page is promoting a scheme to - get this - raise money for Trump's border wall through a crowdfunding page.

Page recently returned for a trip to the nation’s capital for a meeting with President Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and 43 sheriffs from 35 states.

Drunk-driving county commissioner indicted again

But it's okay if you're a Republican:

Rockingham County Commissioner Keith Mabe was indicted Tuesday on alcohol- and traffic-related charges from two separate incidents. This is the second time this year that a grand jury has indicted Mabe on alcohol-related charges.

In March, a grand jury returned indictments against Mabe on charges of driving while impaired, possession of Valium and possession of paregoric in connection with a 2014 accident.

There's nothing quite like a double-dose of opiates to mellow out that alcohol buzz. Sheesh. No wonder he drove through somebody's yard. If that's what he considers "being a public servant," I'd hate to see what he'd get up to if he really didn't care...
