But did Richardson ever vet his own "sign with me" guys?
THIS AIN'T HELL BUT YOU CAN SEE IT FROM HERE:
The folks at Guardians of Valor shared with us their paperwork for Daryld “Gil” Gilbertson, the sheriff for Josephine County, Oregon. He is a Navy veteran of the Vietnam War, and according to his records, he spent more than 2 years of his 3 years of service deployed to the Pacific, first on the destroyer USS Rupertus (DD-851) and then on the missile frigate the USS Dale (CG-19) while both ships sailed off the coast of South Vietnam supporting the war efforts of troops on the ground there. Gilbertson was a radioman during his service. But, I guess that wasn’t good enough for the sheriff, because he told an interviewer that he was also a Navy-trained diver and trained in ordnance disposal.
Well, not according to his Navy records;
I had to ask some of our members from the damper service, but they assure me that the training records indicate nothing but training as a radioman. No training as a diver, no ordnance disposal training. Enigma points out that training for radioman is pretty extensive and requires intense background checks as well, so it doesn’t make sense to get that person blown up after spending all that money.
The good sheriff also did a stint at the Air Force National Guard in Iowa as a security policeman, but again, there’s no training beyond being a security policeman in the Air National Guard;
He left the Air Guard as an E-5 in 1992, but he claims he was a contractor for the State Department and went to Kosovo and that he was a colonel in his campaign literature this year;
In his LinkedIn profile he says that he was in Kosovo as a contractor from 1998 – 2004. He may be telling us that his position with the State Department was equivalent to being a Army colonel, but that’s not what he says.
If that’s not what he’s saying, that’s a pretty slick career path from E-5 to O-6 in six years. He claims service in the Army Reserves, but the National Personnel Records Center couldn’t find those records, only the Navy and Air Force National Guard records. Out of all of that, I think making up stuff about being an ordnance disposal guy without the actual training is most egregious. But, your mileage may vary.

What $500. a day Blogger gems had to say:
Not that I really care that much about this investigation but check with Redstone in the class of B-7-85 regarding bomb training...I was certified by the Army/FBI course. While onboard with my father on the Rupertus I volunteered as one of the ship divers, and later acquired my diving status. There was no mention of Bosnia in your report regarding my contracting for the State Dept through a company called DynCorp,Intl. If you wish to criticize please do your homework. There is more, but not worth my bother.

Something that caught my eye at the Labor Day Parade in Cave Junction was a Josephine County Sheriff's vehicle in the parade with magnetic "VOTE FOR GILBERTSON" signs on it.
I don't know the law well, but does the county usually provide a campaign vehicle for officials? -sarcasm
Here in Josephine County, we watch and wait. What will our Sheriff say next?
I know what I said by my vote on the ballot just dropped in the box. (Before I saw and read this)
This guy walks around looking like CPT Crunch and thinks he is all high and mighty, yet his complete lack of EXP and proof to back up his claims to any of the badges he wears is pretty pathetic. My father works under this guy and my father was former army and knows the deal, let alone I am currently serving my seccond deployment. He claimed that he attened EOD training at Hunter Army Air Field in GA, (I was stationed at FT Stewart, about 30 miles away and have some good EOD contacts from there) and all of them informed me that there is no EOD training that occurs there. This guy really gets to me..
I sent the department an email with a link to this blog. Let's see if they respond. This guy needs to be fired.
When it went public early yesterday it was sent to him personally thus the high speed lame response he gave here.
sounds like hes going the same route as our famous sheriff bill arnado from the 80's who lied about stuff and was found to be on disability from injuries while surviving on a california sheriffs dept.
Bill Arnado clearly stated he was on disability from LA County,their requirements and certifications and standards were and are higher than Jo cty What is a disability there in LA, IS not the standard n Oregon. Facts people, not bs
If that is true why was he kicked off the sheriffs dept and told he could come back if he went to california and got released from their disability ? According to all the news, the fact that he was on didability in california never came out until he was caught.
Will someone please mail this butthole a bag of Bull $hit.
And Richardson still didn't win...
