Below is an article by Dara Kam published in the Palm Beach Post on June 17, titled "NRA goes after Florida sheriffs candidates with survey." Although the headline is slanted (and reporters don't write the headlines), Dara Kam wrote what we think is a balanced story. When both sides are heard, people can cut through the rhetoric.
Just because some sheriffs are uncomfortable answering some of the questions and don't like the options for answers, is exactly why it is framed the way it is.
Both questions and answers are framed around ACTUAL events and statements made in testimony. The questionnaire seeks the truth, and no one can claim they didn't understand the question, the issue or the options for answers. The questionnaire does not allow anyone to skirt the truth.
Make no mistake, sheriffs are politicians. They ask for money and votes. Voters have a right to know where they stand on issues that are important to them before they give either.
