What the heck? Taylor was just petitioning to say that the election wasn't valid. Why get mad at him because he was right? I prefer someone who follows the rules. Let's not bash him because he had a right to petition and challenge what happened.
If the highest "vote-getter" on the ballot withdraws, it should go to the next highest "vote-getter", period.
You prefer someone who follows the rules? Taylor?!
Lets review the facts..........
Taylor was given a traffic citation for running Florida tags for 2 1/2 years instead fo getting WV tags within the required time limit. To get out of that ticket he presented a letter stating HE was a full time student at Wesleyan, not requiring him to have WV tags. The truth is that his SON was the full time student at the time. David Taylor was NEVER a student at Wesleyan. Not only did he NOT follow the rules he also lied in court.
David Taylor searched the "rules" and found a crack in the system from 1939, Hatch Act, and waited until after the election, seeing how bad he was beaten, to complain that Chief Deputy Kelley was not eligible to run for office thinking he could STEAL the nomination. And in YOUR opinion that is following the rules again. David Taylor was notified in mid April that his position at Wesleyan would be terminated. He tells that he left Wesleyan on his own terms. I guess you would call that being honest since he displayed the same honesty in magistrate court as mentioned above.
Why would any citizen support anyone for office that consistantly show dishonesty. David Taylor was NEVER a deputy in Upshur County. He was a jailor. He allowed the inmates to cuff him in the office and when the supervisor came in the supervisor uncuffed Taylor, placed the inmates back into their cells and verbally reprimanded Taylor for his actions. Barney Fife has more manhood and character under his fingernail than Taylor does throughout himself. Taylor told Bruce Bennett that he and Kelley were cousins. More honesty in following the rules. BKHN Resident, sounds like to all Upshur County that you fell for the Taylor Scam and got gut hooked like a mud sucker fish. David Taylor does not pay taxes in this county, he owns no property, and he was not even a registered citizen of WV until 2 weeks prior to him filing for the office of Sheriff.
That is playing by the rules?!!! What the?????
Taylor has been divorced 3 times, I guess he played by all the same rules rules as he has shown throughout this election.
As far as the highest vote getter goes, had David Taylor and Larry Fidler been the only 2 canidates on the ballott, Mr Fidler would have beaten Taylor the same margin as Kelly beat him by. Taylor LOST. Suck it up and move on.
Perhaps 1 of his 3 ex-wives would want him, but it is very soundly noted that a MAJOR majority of all Upshur County does not. Since he is COMPLETELY unemployed he is more than welcome to leave and return to Florida. Or did he wear out his welcome there too?
Peppy le "PUGH" and the "Boy named SUE" are certainly a "STINKY TWO" !!!!!
