Sheriff Si Leis Gets His $99,000 Yacht

Vacillating Pepper casts key vote for Sheriff’s new toy

After weeks of indecision and hand wringing, County commissioners ignored a huge public outcry and voted 2-1 to give the Sheriff his new $99,000 boat to patrol the Ohio river, 75% of which is located in the state of Kentucky.

Commissioner David Pepper first indicated he was for the boat, then said he was against it, and then said he was undecided. He finally voted in favor of giving the Sheriff his new toy at the expense of the taxpayers.

“Now that’s some leadership,” said COAST Chairman Jason Gloyd. “David Pepper who grew up with a silver spoon in his mouth clearly fails to understand the value of a dollar. Apparently, wasting $99,000 in the midst of a budget crisis does not seem to be a big deal to him.”

Joining Pepper in the vote to waste the $99,000 was Commissioner Todd Portune who has made a career of soaking the taxpayers and wasting tax dollars. Both have had a hard time saying “no” to the rapacious Sheriff.

This humorous site, Republicans for Higher Taxes, thinks Si deserves his new toy.

  1. You're damn right we endorsed this boat. The Sheriff needed that boat to protect our shores from foreign invaders. Now we are safe again.
