Ex-police chief sentenced for extortion leaves court shouting ‘Vote for Donald Trump’
Another wonderful Trump supporter.
Former Lee Police Chief Joseph Buffis was convicted of forcing a Lee couple to make a bogus $4,000 donation to a toy charity, in exchange for dropping criminal charges against them. The couple was accused of prostitution, and Buffis is accused of pocketing the money instead of turning it over to the charity, according to Time Warner Cable News.
“It was corrupt behavior,” U.S. District Court Judge Mark Mastroianni said. “It’s deeply, deeply offending to the criminal justice system to have any police officer involved in such conduct.”
…Though he will no longer be able to vote because of his conviction, Buffis left the court room saying, “God bless America, vote for Donald Trump.”
