Mims Denies Conflict of Interest

( MIMS DENIES FUNNY BUSINESS)

          FRESNO COUNTY SHERIFF MARGARET MIMS FINDS HERSELF IN THE UNCOMFORTABLE POSITION OF BEING HEAD OF THE AGENCY RESPONSIBLE FOR INVESTIGATING A CHARGE OF VOTER FRAUD AGAINST A MAN WHO HAS BEEN HER POLITICAL ADVISOR.

          MIKE BRIGGS, THE APPARENT TOP VOTE GETTER IN TUESDAY'S CITY COUNCIL ELECTION, IS ACCUSED OF VOTER FRAUD.  HE  WAS ALSO A CONSULTANT TO SHERIFF MARGARET MIMS IN HER EARLY RUN FOR RE-ELECTION, ALTHOUGH HIS SERVICE WAS CANCELLED WHEN IT BECAME APPARENT THAT MIMS WOULD RUN UN-OPPOSED.

          MIMS SEES NO CONFLICT OF INTEREST.  AND SHE SAID HER OFFICE HAS FREQUENTLY BEEN CALLED UPON TO INVESTIGATE THOSE WHO HAVE SUPPORTED HER POLITICALLY.
