It seems that in Nye County, Nevada, which is where the town of Pahrump is located, the Sheriff and District Attorney are at odds. Allegations between the two have escalated to the point that the Sheriff has had the the District Attorney arrested for misusing public funds. The District Attorney allegedly spent public funds to support a local cheerleading squad, led by the D.A.’s wife. According to one article it also stated that:

Mr. De Meo, the sheriff, and Mr. Beckett, the D.A., haven’t gotten along in years. Mr. De Meo complains that his department arrests people who never get prosecuted. Mr. Beckett contends that some of the sheriff’s cases aren’t solid.

“I’ve often said they need a mother to stop the fighting,” said Mr. Beckett’s wife, JoDee Beckett. “It’s like two little boys.”

The public row has already derailed much of the county’s criminal-justice system. The cases against Mr. Beckett and Mr. Boruchowitz got bogged down because nearly all of the other local legal figures had some connection to the two suspects. The district court’s two sitting county judges both recused themselves, as did a justice of the peace. The state attorney general couldn’t get involved because one of its lawyers is running for district attorney.

On June 20, the Nevada Supreme Court shipped a judge from a town several hundred miles away to appoint a special prosecutor to review the cases against Mr. Beckett and Mr. Boruchowitz.

Isn’t it about time for the public to get involved and recall these two bozo’s? I liked the statement:

“I’ve often said they need a mother to stop the fighting,” said Mr. Beckett’s wife, JoDee Beckett. “It’s like two little boys.”

It does sound like the children do need a time out. LOL

Comments welcome.
