The Sangamon County Sheriff is defending his choice to replace him, even after the current undersheriff made some jokes about marijuana.
During an hour-long interview last Thursday with Sheriff candidate Jack Campbell on the Kramer Show, Campbell joked he wished he would have quote “brought some weed” for Kramer as the radio host had joked earlier in the broadcast.
The State Journal-Register reported that sheriff’s candidate Wes Barr thought those comments were unprofessional, and inappropriate.
Sheriff Neil Williamson says Campbell was attempting humor during a humorous talk show and knows Campbell will perform the duties of Sheriff well.
Williamson says the outrage over Campbell’s statements is typical mudslinging politics with just a few weeks left before the primary March 18th.
