Comment: "BREAKING NEWS" You did not win Tailgunner Dennis ! Now do the voters of this county a big favor...."Don't go away mad..Just go away" !!!! Or please..fade away ! Happy Voter
Answer: Thanks for your mail, Happy Voter. I'm glad that you got what you wanted. I'm not mad at all about the outcome, because I believe that everyone is entitled to get what they want to choose. You apparently got it, so good luck with your choice.
The only problem I still have is that the election laws have not yet been enforced, going on eight years now. Four of us, who ran for the office, played by the rules of the "game," whereas one never did, your apparent choice, and no one has ever done anything about it that has mounted to anything more than a hill of pinto beans. You see, Happy Voter, if I had won, then I would have had to drop my case completely. A loss in the election is a win for me, and the taxpayers of our county. My loss provides me with the "standing" to continue my case, which hopefully in the end will pin the "financial liability tail" where it belongs, in order to recoup the overwhelming unnecessary losses our county has experienced, as a result of an unqualified imposter's decisions, creating liability that should never have happened. It is my opinion that there is some very sound legal reasoning to go after those who worked to keep this unqualified individual in office, for example, through unconstitutional amendments to State laws, in an attempt to cover-up Mr. Wenninger's lack of qualifications to be a valid candidate. There have been many actions taken by several entities to cover-up a lot of things, mainly for political purposes. It's like a big RICO case. Anyway, my main goal, as a taxpayer, is to recoup all the money our county has lost by holding those behind the scenes responsible for all the losses created by their unqualified guy. Those responsible know who they are. Sooner or later my legal effort will end up saving all county taxpayers their hard earned tax money, returning it back to where it originally belonged for the right purposes. It's just a matter of time. Be patient. The longer they continue to cover it up, the deeper they sink into feces.
It's the law involved here that concerns me most. You never have to worry about me running for office again, that's for sure! Politics is doing more to destroy our nation than it helps, in my opinion. But, nevertheless, don't count me completely out of the "game" just yet. I still have to get Mr. Wenninger's qualifications reviewed by an entity with the authority to finally judge whether he was ever qualified to be a valid candidate or not. That will proceed onward until that goal is finally achieved. And if my analysis turns out to be correct, I will have done this county a BIG favor by upholding the law. If my efforts fail, then the people and their courts will have spoken in your favor again, AND, the law will be settled on this matter. Did you really think I could just let it all drop? Think again. I'll stick around though anyway, because I like the people we know, and our home here in Brown County. Even though you may not think I am much of an asset to our community, my wife is, and she likes those she works with and her job.
Thanks again for taking the time to write, Happy Voter. [Maybe next time you write you will have the guts to disclose your identity.]
Wed 11/5/2008 2:57 PM:
A fine effort. You are correct, Brown County spoke, and now they have
what they deserve. It is a pleasure to have met you, and the vast
majority of those I met while campaigning with, and for, you. I'm sure
you agree with me in having no regrets.
Wed 11/5/2008 3:18 PM:
ROCK ON DENNIS! As for Happy Voter, only a PANZY would submit comments
like that and not give his name. Maybe it's D.W. himself, LMAO! Break
out the TP, it's going to be another crappy ride these next four years.
Wed 11/5/2008 3:44 PM:
Too bad you lost this round, the best round is yet to come! A "TKO"

Comment: Tailgunner Dennis, I sure will "Have the guts" to give you my name...when all of the Nameless supporters of YOURS on your website are disclosed. Whatcha say Tailgunner Dennis...want to make a deal !!!! You think you are so much smarter than everyone to the point you look like a [sic] idiot. Quit crying and get over it...The "Courts"..Law..and most important the voters of this county say he is the legal office holder !!! PERIOD ! What's next Tailgunner Dennis..you going to appeal to the UN. "HAPPY VOTER"
Answer: Thanks again, Happy Voter. You sound exactly like "cheap shot" Anonymous. It's the law that counts, and vindication for all those individuals out there who play by the rules established in the law. To allow "cheaters" to prosper, when everyone else legitimately earns their way through hard work, diligence, and determination, by not being lazy, is not the American way. We'll see how it all ends "shortly," possibly with Captain Don Newman as our new sheriff in the coming year. We'll see who cries and stomps their feet at that time. Promise. Be patient. We'll see how "happy" you are after the "normal course of the law" has ended Dwayne, oops, I mean" Happy Voter.

Comment: My hat is off to you Sir! You ran a clean campaign that was self financed and continue to shine a bright spot light on the fact that the sheriff is not qualified.
As I have stated often in discussion with you I am a hard core conservative republican. Yet I chose to vote for and support you. I thank you and your wife for your service to our country as well as our county.
I hope the spotlight we have placed on the Sheriff at least convinces him to work a standard work week. The current Sheriff joined an organization that I am a member of. I am interested to see if he attends any meetings now that he doesn’t need the votes. Keep the train in motion!
Answer: Thanks again, Mike. Too many people supported me who were concerned about the significant issue of Mr. Wenninger's qualifications. I solely have the standing and ability to follow-up on this issue. I can't let all those individuals down now by just bailing out on this underlying problem facing our county. Too many lives have already been lost without comprehensive cooperation, too much taxpayer money foolishly wasted due to lack of experience, too many laws broken for lack of knowledge of the law, etc., for me to abandon ship now. Those are just some of the reasons why I ran, and that is why most backed my candidacy. I will follow through on what I say I'm going to do until a genuine, comprehensive "vetting" of Mr. Wenninger's qualifications is completed and settled.
Thu 11/6/2008 11:28 AM:
Congratulations for the effort you and your family and supporters put in
over the recent election season.
Thu 11/6/2008 11:40 AM:
Dennis I just want to say that I am very sorry that you didn't win this
election. You got more votes than anyone has against Wenninger so if we
are lucky, this will make him realize that people are tired of his lack
Ohio Supreme Court case law clearly states that if a person is not qualified, but nevertheless gets elected, that's okay, as long as the electee rectifies his disqualification immediately upon assuming the position, otherwise the electee FORFEITS the seat, in other words, the seat is legally vacated even though Mr. Wenninger continued to physically sit in that seat. So, if Mr. Wenninger was not legally in the position, then he could not "legally" appoint himself with OPOTC as being the Sheriff. Thus, under the administrative law for OPOTC regulations, he started a break in service on his OPOTA police certificate on January 1, 2001, and four years later, January 1 2005, his OPOTA certificate completely expired, to the point where he would have to re-take the whole police academy all over again, and would have had to graduate prior to the, March 4th, 2008, primary in order to be a valid candidate for sheriff at that time, as required under ORC 311.01(B)(8)(a) & (b). Mr. Wenninger was a "civilian," legally-speaking, two days before he assumed his second-term seat. He has been impersonating a police officer ever since. Any arrests he makes exposes himself to personal liability, and will most certainly cause any defendant to be immediately released once that fact is determined. Somebody has to do something about this situation sooner or later. That is what my court efforts are all about, seeing as how everyone with any local authority to do something seems to be "hamstrung" from doing anything about it.
So why hasn't anything been done over the last eight years? Good question. The legal climate or condition in the county right now is a direct reflection of how well the prosecuting attorney is doing, has done, his job. It is my opinion, that "Tommy," [an alleged amorous name] a.k.a., Thomas Grennan, Brown County Prosecutor, has treated some animals differently than others, solely based upon who they are, and not what they have done. Things will change shortly after a new prosecutor is installed, January 2009.
Somehow, some way, this matter has to get into an authoritative legal forum where it will be seriously looked at sooner or later. My filing today will get looked at by the 12th District Court of Appeals, and then either remanded back to the common pleas court, or the 12th District Court will grant the writ, or I will have to appeal its decision to the Ohio Supreme Court. There is one high-integrity judge voted in to be on 12th District Court of Appeals, Judge Ringland, who just happens to have been the trial judge on the criminal case, concerning Mr. Wenninger's indictment for falsification of election documentation. It was Judge Ringland who told Mr. Wenninger that the State had made its case with respect to Mr. Wenninger's lack of qualifications to be a valid candidate for sheriff, but that the question of whether or not Mr. Wenninger "knowingly" falsified his nominating petition had to go to the jury for a decision of guilty or innocent, which outcome had no bearing whatsoever on Mr. Wenninger's credentials to be a valid candidate for sheriff - he didn't have them, and still doesn't. The very last court in the line of succession for this matter is the U.S. Supreme Court. And, since it is a case of first impression in the country, I'd take it there too, if I have to do so.
If my legal analysis is correct, and Mr. Wenninger is the "civilian" I claim him to be, and he is invalidated as a candidate on the November 4th ballot, then there will be a special election to pick the new sheriff. Don Newman and myself would most certainly be on the ballot in that election. Don would have a better chance than I, because I, as an independent, understand a lot of people used their "sample ballot" lists to guide their voting on Tuesday. I was wondering why if there were about 40,000 voters [40K was pointed out to me as an error/misstatement and corrected below in another post], and only approximately 19,000 voted for the Sheriff race, what happened to the others? Why didn't they vote in the Sheriff race? It was told to me, by a strong Republican supporter at Lake Loreli, that he was doing exit-polling, asking fellow Republicans if they voted for Varnau for Sheriff. They asked him, "Was he on this list [the sample Republican ballot]? [Obviously not as an independent.] Then they realized they had voted for the "wrong" person. Too late. Same would apply to Democrat voters who used "sample ballots" to do their voting. They would not have seen any candidate for Sheriff on their "cheat sheet," and thus probably would not have voted for a sheriff candidate. This is one plausible explanation for why I was not even able to secure the Lake Loreli precinct. Doesn't matter really. It's the law is what matters most. And sooner or later it will have to be upheld, or we're all in big trouble as a nation when the law is not supreme over politics, etc.

Comment: Sometimes when the truth is told, people refuse to accept it. That guy who keeps calling you "tailgunner" is a serious jerk. If it is the guy who won, he's thumbing his nose at the people of Brown County. Chuck
Answer: Thanks, Chuck. Eventually the truth will be known to all. I could be wrong, but believe I'm right. We'll see soon.
Thu 11/6/2008 3:22 PM:
You really put it all out there. Good job! Good luck with the courts, I
hope that works out. If not I hope someone that has as much enthusiasm
and drive as you had in this race runs.

Thu 11/6/2008 7:27 PM:
Answer: Thanks Dave, for the correction. I was in a hurry to get those posts up before I left to get that Motion to Reconsider. I was wrong in my post on that. It makes even more sense now. 18,993 votes cast in the Sheriff's election, out of about 20,000 approximately. I'm surprised that "Happy Voter" did not correct me on that one before you did! What's the world coming to? A computer programmer found the error before "Happy Voter!" Wonders never cease! You've TOO much education Dave! If you haven't learned by now from "Happy Voter's" posts, education is a "debilitating" asset, to be avoided at all costs, if possible. The less you have, the more qualified you are, at least for sheriff. If you don't have the minimum required, then you have to find a state representative who can engineer an amendment to lower the educational standards, specifically for your unique situation, to make it look like you qualify, after the fact. Politics at its finest!
Fri 11/7/2008 9:52 AM:
If "Happy Voter" is so profoundly disgusted with you and your website,
why does he keep surfing in? Its like he can't get over himself! Sounds
like one of our elected officials (or one of his disciples).
Fri 11/7/2008 10:43 AM:
My, my, my. You have yourself a fan club Dennis. I mean, I have heard of
a sore loser, but a sore winner? I needed a good laugh for today. Oh,
and I also used a well documented source for the term tailgunner instead
of Wikipedia this time. Surprisingly, tailgunner isn't in the
dictionary, so.... that means we can make up meanings for words when we
see fit. Therefore, HAPPY VOTER = "Varnau for sheriff" supporter. Sorry,
just had to go there.
So I have to assume you, being so smart in Worldly matters, know the
old saying that "if you sleep with dogs, you wake up with fleas," or how
about "birds of a feather flock together." Sounds like you need a flea
bath HV. You are hereby disowned from this family. But, feel free to
keep coming back to post more of your pointless rants. In this day
and age, we need fools to keep us happy! Oh, and I won't be as humble as
Dennis was. I would love to debate World views with you as I am sure on
a 3rd grade level you have a lot to share with us adults. Dennis has
permission to give you my email address, but I am guessing you won't
email me because then we will know who you are, although I think we

I'm sure this fight is getting tiresome for you as well as your wife. I
still stand behind you and I pray that all of this BS will come to and
end soon for you as well as for the citizens of Brown County. I spotted
D.W. on Thursday, 11-5-08. he was standing on the corner of Plum and
Main in jeans and dark Grey shirt. He looked like he was working hard
for the citizens that voted for him. I swear Happy Voter is D.W., just a
Answer: Thanks again, J.H. Tiresome? Not really. The longer it goes on, the more determined I get to find someone who will uphold the law, or at least consider the arguments and come up with a final decision. I know there are some who still support what I am doing, but I'd do it anyway if it were just me, because I find it totally unacceptable to allow my tax money to be wasted, by an unqualified person holding office illegally, for no legitimate reason. Last time I heard, it was over $600K Mr. Wenninger had cumulatively lost in judgments against the county due to his inexperience that ended up in legal action against the Sheriff's Office and him personally. I suppose most taxpayers in this county, at least about 12,000 of them don't really care about it. We still do.
Fri 11/7/2008 6:43 PM:
The case should be nothing but a "slam dunk" - either a person meets the
minimal qualifications or they don't. It seems too simple to be such a
struggle - I won't wish you good luck - I only wish justice for all the
citizens of Brown County.
Answer: I'm convinced that politics is what has
trumped my case thus far, Joe. Someone in the hierarchy of the Brown
County Republican Party allegedly said, "He'll [Varnau] never get his
case through "OUR" courts" - meaning, "OUR Republican-dominated" courts.
Don't statements like that, if true, disturb anyone else besides me
about the potential for genuine justice, under the law, in our court
system, if not being a registered Republican? I would think
that every real American Democrat, Independent, and honest
Republican, would take offense to that kind of a statement. Surely
any judge on the bench, in the courts he was supposedly referring to,
would also take offense to that statement.
Fri 11/7/2008 8:28 PM:
Comment: Dear Tailgunner Dennis, Well..I will ask you for a "THIRD" time! Will you post ALL your Anonymous supporters names on your website, including the initial PANZY'S ? ? ? Since your [sic] worried about who I am and you believe in a one way [sic] street that favors you I thought I would make the offer AGAIN ! Come on Tailgunner..have some guts ! Happy Voter
Answer: Keep it coming, Happy Voter. I'll post it for you. Actually, I could care less about your identity. That does not really matter to me in the slightest. I know pretty much about you from the content of your mail, and that you are supposedly closely connected to Mr. Wenninger, unless you are lying about your relationship with your buddy.
I know individuals, like the UDF lady, that have legitimate reasons why they don't want their names published, because the threat of retaliation by Mr. Wenninger is GENUINELY real to them, as evidenced by his actions and words. Six-year statute of limitations on that potential fourth degree felony action taken by Mr. Wenninger on the UDF lady. Same for the RSP on the stolen $1100 Sony TV from a known felon in Clermont and Brown Counties, admitted to by Mr. Wenninger in The News Democrat, yet nothing done by the prosecutor. Why? Others have served prison time for much less. And that's "OUR" "sheriff," who should be held to the highest standard over all other county citizens??? It's supposed to be, not who YOU are, but what YOU did, when it comes to administration of the law. I find it hard to believe that I'm the only one left in Brown County who cares about these illegal actions by "OUR" "sheriff." It's like the Kentucky State Police detective said to Kristy and I while working a case a couple of years back: "Why, this is like the Wild West up here!"
Only someone with a narcissistic, Gestapo-like personality would be wanting to know who wrote something that rubbed him where it "hits" home. My "guts" will be evidenced by my tenacity and resolve to see my case through to the end. Have patience. Mr. Wenninger will have to, sooner or later, fess up to a court of law. We'll see who has the "guts" at that time. I already know Mr. Wenninger doesn't have the "guts," integrity, or honesty, to play by the rules, but instead feels perfectly comfortable cheating, while others faithfully played by the established rules. The Republican Party has obviously sanctioned Mr. Wenninger's conduct for almost eight full years now, with another potential four more years of the same ahead. It's no wonder Republicans got decisively trounced in this election. People are fed up with the law being enforced unequally - enforced more often on those "unconnected" and unable to defend themselves from false or unfounded charges.

Comment: It is disturbing that these things don't seem to bother people. It concerns me, I can tell you that. The law is the law, and is for everyone; or at least it's supposed to be. This appears to be a real problem in our society. Do people not want the TRUTH? How times have changed, no wonder we see the problems we have today. What ever happened to the old saying "Truth, Justice, and the American Way"? Don
Answer: Thanks, Don. I agree. Whatever happened to it? It's VANISHED! "Truth and Justice" are now diametrically opposed to the "American Way."
Sun 11/9/2008 5:19 PM:
Comment/Question: Tailgunner Dennis, YAWN !! The "UDF" lady is NOT the only anonymous supporter on your ragged website. You can not handle the heat of your own medicine. Any one who does not totally agree with your paranoid and stupid baseless belief's..you attack them. Now that's gutless. Speaking of the "UDF" lady..and the GESTAPO tactic's you used recording her...Who all heard the recording ? Where did you take the recording to ??? HMMM. If anyone is NARCISSISTIC Dennis...It's you. Just read your own rants on this website. You have NEVER been able to name, substantiate any of your (STUPID & PETTY) claims ...such as "Tractor Oil Drained". That and other baseless smears of yours just make you look uncreditable [sic] and frankly just plain childish. The voters of this county have spoken.....Now live with it my childish boy ! Happy Voter
Answer: I see you just woke up again, Happy Voter. Thanks again for your input. The voters may have spoken, but I seriously doubt the majority of voters are aware of what will eventually be front-page news in Brown County, once my case is properly addressed in court. We'll see who the voters select in a special election after Mr. Wenninger's lack of qualifications to be a candidate have been ferreted out properly by a court of competent jurisdiction. Stick around, Happy. We'll see how happy you are at the end of this slow process.
Mon 11/10/2008 12:28 PM:
Sorry you lost. We really needed a change here in Brown County. I did
not know this site would still be working. I had your sign in my yard
and supported you the whole election. I have family that was not very
pleased with me as they work for Dwayne W. I was a Bob Rickey supporter
up till the last week before the election. Bob filled a large paragraph
addressing a "rumor" in the last News Democrat. I had not heard the
"rumor" till then. After reading his take on the issue it was obvious
Bob was not being truthful. We do not need another dishonest
I first heard of the rumor being spread about Grennan working for Rickey from a fellow officer who was at the prosecutor's office and Common Pleas Court one morning. He called me up after getting home to tell me about it. It all made perfect sense to me, considering everything I had already known from my time in the prosecutor's office. Almost immediately, one "busybody" accused me of being the one to start the rumor, when it was probably Grennan who "leaked" it to someone in his office, thinking working for Rickey would be a way to retain specific personnel Grennan preferred in his office. I wish I could have taken credit for that one myself after hearing it. Nevertheless, I think the way Rickey responded in the newspaper and at meetings, that really did some irreparable damage to his campaign. What I heard most about Bob was his lack of wanting to do many things during his campaign. A few of Bob's supporters, after the election, were saying that he ran a lackluster campaign and was too lazy to really get out there and get to be known around the county.

Comment/Question: Tailgunner Dennis, As always (No Surprise)you never answer a question put to you. Everyone knows due to your NARCISSISTIC personality your [sic] so much smarter and MORE deserving than anyone with a Robotic's degree. But...are you mentally able to read a question put to you and answer it ? Without mentioning the Sheriff ONCE ? You want answers from him but you can never answer one yourself ! So please..answer my previous questions. And If Kristy cannot figure out "Tailgunner"..tell her to add Joe to the end of it. Because we both know you do not post ALL your incoming emails...don't we Dennis ? And I would REALLY like to know who else my [sic] heard your now famous recording at the UDF !!! Interfering in a investigation is a BIG no no Tailgunner !
Answer: Thanks, Happy. It's good to see you have had enough sleep this time when writing. Of course, you must know by now, there are no surprises in store about your buddy's lack of qualifications. EVERYBODY knows he was never qualified. It's no secret or surprise. The "Robotic's Degree" possessed by your buddy did not satisfy the (9)(b) requirement of Ohio Revised Code Section 311.01(B) back in 2001, where the degree had to be from a Board of Regents approved school. Since he did not possess the proper requirements to be a valid candidate, and since he did not rectify the disqualification, by obtaining the requisite educational credentials required in (9)(b), immediately upon assuming the office, he automatically forfeited the seat. That's "forfeited," as in "VACATED," legally-speaking. Thus, he was NOT legally the sheriff; NEVER has been; NEVER will be! He's the sheriff that never was, but thinks he is, while others have actively covered up this fact, taking deliberate, intentional steps to keep the truth from the public, to the financial detriment of the taxpayers of our county. That fact needs to be litigated sooner or later, so the money lost, as a result of your buddy's unqualified incompetence, can be recouped from all those directly involved in facilitating its loss.
None of this has anything to do with my educational credentials in any way whatsoever. It has nothing to do with the names of my supporters or those harassed during the election campaign. It has nothing to do with my mental abilities, or anything else concerning me at all. The only thing that involves me in this matter is the fact that I was qualified to be a valid candidate, and could acquire the standing to do what needs to be done. I will not stop until your buddy's credentials have been thoroughly reviewed. They have NEVER been looked at yet, even though he claimed such in his campaign ads as being "well-vetted." Eventually this will happen. It may take some time, but I am prepared to stick with it until that happens. Sooner or later there will be front-page news hitting the newspapers that you, Happy, will not want to be reading. It may even be national news, because what has happened here in Brown County, Ohio, over the last eight years, has never happened anywhere else in our country, EVER.
Too bad, Happy. This is not about me at all. This is all about cheating, lying, cover-up, etc., by your buddy and his friends. Such has to definitely be disclosed in a BIG way, like say, a national news outlet or report, to shine a bright spotlight on it all,. The longer the courts procrastinate, the bigger it will be news-wise. It is imperative every county taxpayer understands how they have been ripped off over the last eight years by your buddy and those who have engineered and helped to continue this fraud, bilking the people of our county.
I can do! Stick around, Happy. Maybe you will be the first able to tell your buddy the bad news, soon after I receive it, and get it posted. Hang in there now. Don't be discouraged. This may take a while. Be patient. I am. "Don't Worry, Be 'Happy.'"
Mon 11/10/2008 10:07 PM:
Answer: Thanks for your views, Free Speech. If my court case ends up successful, and I win a special election, at least then you won't have to worry about possibly dying of a heart attack, if you are outside a municipal corporation limit, and become another statistic because of a non-responding deputy sheriff, as a result of your pick for "sheriff." But that's your free choice to make.
I wrote that about a "lackluster" campaign. That is what one Rickey supporter complained about to me. It's your right to support Mr. Rickey, the same as it was my right to support Jessica Little. A prosecutor has to be completely independent, not part of a good old boys' network, and not "hamstrung" by something being held over his/her head, to do the job fairly, etc. Jessica Little was the best candidate for the position, and will be an excellent prosecutor.
From your perspective and views, feel free to add another "misfit" to the new prosecutor's office. It would be an honor to work for Mrs. Little in her office, and I will do so as soon as my court case has come to an end, if Don Newman wins a special election. That may take some time, however, as the wheels of justice turn very slow. Nevertheless, sooner or later the "sheriff's" qualifications will be scrutinized to the point where there will be no questions left unanswered. The taxpayers will then know that their tax dollars were not illegally wasted by the decisions of an unqualified candidate, but were, in fact, made by a genuine qualified sheriff.

Comment/Questions: Tailgunner Dennis, LOL !You made my point for me again..LOL ! To save your own life..you could never answer a question "PUT TO YOU"..about YOU. Is there any question you can answer AT ALL with out bringing Wenninger into it ? It's like you have a sick obsecion [sic] over him. But...we know how much smarter you are than Judges, BOE, Voters, etc. Wich [sic] also proves another point about you..you have a NARCISSISTIC personality. You know Tailgunner Dennis...your [sic] a spoiled child who couldn't buy him a badge....OHHHHH poor baby. Rant on Tailgunner....getting a [sic] answer to a simple question from you is impossible ! IF you can't answer TUFF questions about yourself Tailgunner..you need to stay out of politic's [sic]. Now..AGAIN !!!! answer the previous questions..(Don't forget to turn it to D.W.) Happy Voter
Answer: Thanks again, Happy. There are two things that Maverick-lovers constantly worry about: 1.) Varnau; and, 2.) breaking a hip. My Incoming Mail pages have come full-circle with page one, first post. Deep-cover provides unsolicited answers again from within the Matrix.
Tue 11/11/2008 10:20 AM:
Comment/Question: Free Speech doesn't have a clue. Bob Rickey lost the election himself. I too read the last story on the prosecutor race in the paper. Most people knew nothing of the "rumor" before he brought it up. The paragraph about it was longer than the one about his plans for the job. I heard many people changed their decision not to vote for Bob after reading it. If Dennis was able to reach that many people, why are so many residents unaware of DW's lack of qualifications. Truth and fact won over lies and deception in the prosecutor's race. We all hope truth and fact will win in the Sheriff race as well.
Free Speech asked Bob about what he calls the "rumor". Free
Speech, ask DW about his case, he has a way to prove Dennis wrong.
If Dwayne ever unsealed his case, everyone would see in black and white what Judge Ringland said in court. No need to worry though, because Dwayne will never voluntarily open up that sealed case. But, once it gets to the Supreme Court, they will have access to it no matter what Dwayne has to say about it at that time.
"Misfits" from other counties? What about APA Mary McMullen and APA Michelle Gregory? Are they misfits too from other counties? I think not! Actually, people not directly connected to the good old boys network in this county would most likely not be readily influenced by local politics, and would hold for the rule of law over politics, cronyism, etc.

I appreciate you keeping this website open, even if, many of our 'happy
idiot's are writing in. Could you possibly forewarn us as to the content
of their rants so we won't have to waste our time reading their
ill-conceived and caustic remarks while gloating over their hard won
continuation of a crime.
Answer: Thanks, Chuck.

you go to a surgeon don't you want to make sure his license is legit?

Been reading your posts for a long time, some interesting, some
thought-provoking, and some downright stupid. If I were you, I would
just ignore "Happy Voter" since you cannot say or do anything to satisfy
him. He is doing everything in his power to yank your chain. You and I
and many others know the truth and someday, hopefully in the near
future, everyone will know the truth about the "sheriff". In the
meantime, tell happy voter to kiss your happy ass.
Me. I'm just waiting now to hear back from the 12th District Court of Appeals, for their answer on our Motion to Reconsider, or, first see a Reply from the prosecutor's office to our motion. If, in the end, they find Mr. Wenninger's status is "OK," that will set brand new precedent over years of settled law, and probably give many other peace officers in Ohio, whose certificates have lapsed, legitimate causes of action to be reinstated by OPOTC. It will be interesting to see how this all plays out. Maybe Mr. Wenninger's situation will change settled law, so that unqualified candidates who get voted into office will not have to become qualified anymore to hold any position. It will be interesting to see how many positions in government will then become open to all citizens, like say, the Engineer's Office. Potential candidates will no longer need a professional engineer's and surveyor's license to run for that position in the future. The "slippery slope" starts here in Brown County, Ohio. And Americans thought California set precedents first! Step aside for Brown County, Ohio, Arnold!

Dennis: I better understand the case now...I read about it a little on
your web site a day or two before the election (after I received your
email) Interesting case...
Phil in Baghdad
Answer: Thanks for your mail, Phil. Sooner or later all the "chickens come home to roost." There are a lot of allegations flying around up here too, with respect to many "shady" things that supposedly have gone on with foreclosure sales [with fixed paper trails], missing marijuana seizures/eradications, etc., you name it, there is a huge amount of scuttlebutt and information now flowing in after this most recent election. My educated guess is that there will be a lot of individuals who will eventually end up where they never thought they'd ever find themselves, sitting in Lebanon, Chillicothe, or Marion. It's only a matter of time now. "It all comes out in the wash." Any officer anywhere involved in criminal activity, directly or as an accomplice, deserves prison time at the very least, since they are entrusted by the general public to uphold the laws they have deliberately chosen to violate. It is going to be interesting, to say the least. Remember the evidence rooms.
Wow! 15 years for taking gambling money pay-offs. What do you think the sentence would be if Sheriff Medford was taking cover money for drug king pins? He probably would have gotten life out of that, don't you think? Ex-Sheriff Medford will be 77 years old by the time he gets out, that is, if he is still alive long enough to get out, after he's in prison a while. If he takes enough KY-Jel with him, maybe he'll make it to his parole time, but I doubt it. An old buddy of mine, now deceased, Bill Slone, was a prison guard at Lucasville for over 20 years. Crooked cops don't fare too well in prison, from some of the stories Bill told me. Even inmates hate crooked cops, probably more so than the general public despises them.

I am satisfied you will never answer a question put to you without turning it into D.W. or some other rant. Your gutless tailgunner. You have proved you should NEVER hold an elected office.

I think Happy has gone of the deep end. What does he mean gutless?
Gutless is the one who intimidates women to suppress votes. Gutless is
the sorry ass who drained the oil and shot up the billboard. Between the
name-calling and the third grade level spelling I think it shows how
mentally challenged Happy must really be. If one was to think about it
DW himself has a childish attitude and way of life. He hides from the
truth and will cheat and do anything to win. Why is Happy so scared of

No ofence but i got sick of hearing about the election everytime i came hear. Please answer me how to reach you confidecialy on the computer I have bunchs of names from hear and in kentucky.
Answer: Thank you for your mail, River Girl. The best thing to do is not to call me, but to call the FBI at: 1-513-421-4310, or the Ohio Attorney General's Bureau of Criminal Investigation and Identification Tip Line at: 1-800-282-3784, and tell them what you think is the important information you know. They will take your information and keep it confidential as to who called them with the information. Call either of those two offices only. DO NOT call anyone else but those two numbers only.

What do you think the age is of Happy Voter? He (she) is either very
young or needs to take a grammar class.
Answer: Thank you, Diane. Someone told me that Mr. Happy Voter is in his upper 60's to low 70's, and worries constantly about not breaking his hip. This comes from "grapevine" information that actually put a name to Mr. Happy Voter.
OPPOSITION MEMORANDUM TO MOTION TO RECONSIDER
On November 17, 2008, the Brown County Prosecutor Office Assistant Prosecutor Mary McMullen filed a memorandum in opposition to my motion to reconsider the 12th District Court of Appeal decision handed down on October 29th, 2008. That decision did not take into consideration a recent Ohio Supreme Court decision that essentially said that a court cannot deny a writ of mandamus request based upon the reasoning that there may be a remedy for the applicant in the future. Who knows what can happen between the time a writ of mandamus should be granted and what will happen months later. "Justice delayed is justice denied," is a basic maxim that any judge sitting on any court should know by rote memory.
The problem is that a writ of quo warranto is not an available remedy for my situation. I lost the election. If Mr. Wenninger is found to not have been eligible, then a special election would have to be held to determine who would be sheriff. A quo warranto action would not be an available remedy for me under the facts. Actually Captain Don Newman should have been the Republican candidate, because Mr. Wenninger was just as ineligible to be a candidate in the primary election.
So, not guessing what the 12th District Appeals Court will decide, because that is impossible to determine, they can remand the case back to the Common Pleas Court, in which case that court can grant the writ or "find" another reason to deny it, in which case it will go back to the 12th District again. I'm not sure if the 12th District can grant the writ, but whatever happens, there is always the Ohio Supreme Court as a second-last stage of appeal, with the U.S. Supreme Court as a final resort. The U.S. Supreme Court just might grant certiorari to hear the case, because the facts present in this case have never happened anywhere in our country ever. It is what is called a "case of first impression." That just might be significant enough to get certiorari.
If my protest material is ever legitimately considered by a court of competent jurisdiction, and they overturn decades of election laws to find Mr. Wenninger a valid, legal sheriff, with a valid OPOTC certificate, you will be seeing a lot of police officers whose certificates also have "expired" within the last eight years come out of the woodwork. Their certificates will arguably then be just as valid as Mr. Wenninger's at that time. It will be interesting to follow the courts and their final decision, because it is like a big Catch-22, legally speaking, for the courts and OPOTC. If they make an exception for one, all who fit within the boundary conditions of any legal judgment will then have valid causes of action to secure their "expired" OPOTC certificates as also being just as current and legally valid as his.

Thank you for exposing the truth and hanging in there. I do not know
what we can do now except wait for the courts. The letter in the paper
last week about you just wanting your way was pathetic. When costs to
tax-payers is mentioned about the special election, did she not think of
the costs to Brown County due to D.W.'s reckless behavior ending up in
unnecessary lawsuit settlements. How about the deaths that could have
maybe been prevented had police officers been allowed to respond to
heart attack emergencies?

Comment: They just finding this out! It's been going on in our county at least as far back as 2001. Where has the media been all this time.
Tue 12/2/2008 10:09 AM:
Comment/Question: Read your latest "excerpt" and "comment" and found it interesting that you emphasized in boldface type only "politicians and...cops" as your areas of concern regarding the the future career choices for the next generation. You obviously don't consider the roles of "parents, corporate executives, journalists and generals" important. However, you've never been a parent, corporate executive, journalist or general, have you - only a politician and a cop? The article you copied states that students attending religious schools have a higher rate of cheating on exams than those attending non-religious schools. I find it interesting that your political brochure notes you attended Moeller Catholic High School and wonder if that's why you didn't excerpt that section of the article. Any significance there? Your excerpt also references "stealing" and, in case you didn't notice, you "excerpted" from an article copyrighted by AFP which prohibits any publication, rewriting, broadcasting or redistribution directly or indirectly in any medium. How does that differ from "stealing"? Anonymous
Answer: Thanks for your question and input, Anonymous. Please go to Google, search for "fair use exception copyright," and do some reading to expand your educational experience. Then realize that this excerpt directly pertains to much, if not most, of the subject matter content on my website, that of "cheating" or "stealing" to obtain something that is not legally possessed. Also notice that I only took an excerpt, but posted the hyperlink, so I would not distribute the whole article as is, but gave you the opportunity to go see for yourself what the rest of the article contained. The part I excerpted is used to demonstrate or instruct that what this author has "discovered" is something that has been going on in our county approximately eight years prior to his publication, by a politician who happens to be a "cop" in our county.
I can't remember cheating on any exam or test while at Moeller, but I did flunk religion class in my Sophomore year. It's the only subject throughout my whole schooling career that I ever got an "F." Then after getting back from Vietnam, and presented some truth from the Bible, I found that the religion I was brought up in was way off base with respect to what is contained in that Book, as in, the two did not match up at all, unless one happens to believe he/she is an Old Testament Jew, doing Jewish things, thinking that such is going to get him/her to heaven today. When I opted for the truth over emotional family ties, it was hard, but forever in hell is a pretty big motivator to toss family ties to the wind after taking time to think about eternity for a while.
Nevertheless, from what you have written, I find it interesting that you seem to abhor cheating and stealing yourself? If that is the case, would you support one who would cheat or hide his lack of qualifications to be a candidate for public office in order to steal a position for which he was not qualified, and then proceed to waste taxpayer money in settlements over lawsuits that should have never happened?
Tue 12/2/2008 12:45 PM:
Thank you for your response to my comment regarding the article you
excerpted. I don't need to "go to Google, search for fair use exception
copyright" and, as you suggest, expand my educational experience. I
understand that fair use of anyone else's work product must meet the
four-factor test, is often impossible to quantify, and that fact-based
works receive less protection. However, even use of fact-based work is
not made "fair" by giving the author (the hyperlink) credit. Fair use
favors criticism, teaching, scholarship and research, but these uses are
not automatically deemed 'fair use'. In your words, you used the excerpt
"to demonstrate or instruct", but I don't believe this would meet the
"teaching or scholarship" standard of one of the four-factor
requirements. Even a portion "excerpted", if it contains the heart of
the work (and your excerpt does), can constitute copyright infringement.
Another factor to consider is whether the use is 'commercial' in nature.
This is a self-serving website used as a platform to promote your
candidacy for elected office (commercial?) and to bring forth your
allegations of "cheating" and "stealing" on the part of your opponent. I
have to admire, however, your ability to take anything printed or spoken
and twist it to serve your purposes. And why mention the Old Testament
Jews doing Jewish things? Is this another prejudice? Anonymous
I'm wondering what it is on my "self-serving website" that has perked your interest for you to spend your time reading it. Thank you, anyway, for that interest, attention, and concern, that I do not break any laws, according to your "beliefs." It is refreshing to get mail from others who also hate seeing laws broken and nothing done about it by those whose job it is to do something, that is, assuming they do their job by not getting Rule 29'd out of court.
How did the topic of "prejudice" conjure up in your mind with respect to Jews? I have absolutely nothing against any Jew. Do you? If it were not for the Jews, I would never have had the opportunity to come to the knowledge of the truth. You know, the Oracles.
What are the "purposes" of my "twistings" from your perspective? Please explain?
Tue 12/2/2008 10:19 PM:
Again, thanks for your response. You're correct in that I didn't have to
waste any time researching 'fair use exemption' and I don't have to
waste any time becoming familiar with Mr. Wenninger's lack of
qualifications either. I know he did not meet the requirements to be a
valid candidate in 2001, but, by the time anyone researched that aspect,
the statute had run on that issue. The remaining issue, a felony on
which the clock was still running, was 'did he KNOWINGLY falsify' his
documentation attesting to his qualifications? During his trial, the
State satisfied the Court that Wenninger was not qualified, and the
Judge (without the jury present) denied Wenninger's motion to dismiss
the charges. Something to consider is that if the judge had dismissed
the charge, the jury would have gone home as they'd have had nothing to
decide. The jury was brought back into the courtroom and told to decide
if Wenninger KNEW he wasn't qualified when he signed his candidacy
paperwork. The jury gave him a pass. Since then, one juror stated
he thought Wenninger couldn't have KNOWN he wasn't qualified, because he
wasn't smart enough to think up a plan like that. But that's what
happens with a jury - you just never know what you'll get. However, that
point is now moot. Your hopes to unseat Wenninger will now have to rest
with your mandamus action.
Answer: Thanks again, Anonymous. You remind me of someone I know whose daughter and son-in-law are allegedly known to be involved in dope smoking and dealing. I wonder, as others I know wonder no more, just who "Anonymous" is, hiding behind cyberspace.
In any event, you're probably not her anyway. The person I know would not be so ignorant as to divulge so much detailed information to make an instant identification possible, like that used to disclose the Uni-Bomber's identity. To answer your question, however, doing Jewish things today will not get a Jew or Catholic to heaven. Won't happen, according to the Bible. Jews specifically reject Jesus Christ as the Messiah, God manifest in the flesh, and thus, are as lost as any other religionist practicing and placing his/her faith in his/her religion today. There is no salvation today outside of complete faith and trust in what He did for everyone on that cross - dying for all men's [and women] sins. Moslems keep their faith in the face of adversity, do you admire them too? The point is, what is one's faith place in, not how well they "keep the faith."
That eccentric older lady rejects outright the Bible as nothing more than literature, thinks all Jews are unqualifiedly going to heaven, and said she would like to see my political opponent "burn in hell." Now. Does that sound like a person whose destination is heaven? Such person is filled with so much hate, it overflows profusely on everything breathing within her household. The beauty in all of this is that the truth will prevail in the end. A quick read of Proverbs chapter one clearly describes what awaits her fate - everlasting fire and torment, FOREVER! And, being mocked and laughed at on the way down, by God Himself. Imagine that! Is such consummate hate, directed at one person, from within her heart, worth an eternity in hell? People like this just tell you they don't believe in hell. Okay. That's fine. No skin off my back. To each his own belief. I can only answer up for myself in the end. You many not agree with what I have said, Anonymous, but that is your choice too. I can live with that; am glad you have chosen your own way; and, won't lose any sleep over it. Will you?
Wed 12/3/2008 7:55 AM:
Thanks again for your enlightened response. Referring to me as "her"
demonstrates your heightened investigative skills. Unless there's been a
gender change that both my wife and I have missed, you're off-base. The
'detailed information' you mention I 'divulged' must be in reference to
Mr. Wenninger's qualifications. You asked me to get a "grasp" on the
issue and I assured you I already had one. The 'detailed information' is
a regurgitation of information supplied and sermonized by none other
than you, coupled with information I got by speaking with others who
seem more informed than you.
Answer: You're the MAN, Anonymous. I don't think there is any question about "who wears the pants" in your family. Thanks for helping me out in so many ways. I'm glad my website helped you come to some solid conclusions you can live with in your life. I'm also glad that the election worked out the way that makes you completely happy inside. The people got what they wanted. I can definitely live with that. The law, nevertheless, still needs to be upheld, so that Captain Don Newman can run unopposed in the special election after my court case is finally complete.
Anonymous, you automatically assume way too much when it comes to defining my "hatred" and "threats," just because I may disagree with you or anyone else over some issue, particularly religious issues it seems, which you then immediately translate into race issues, etc. Every time I state some facts about something, whatever it may concern, you instantly assume that I hate or am threatening someone or something. It seems more like that is what you "want," or "wish" I would do, than what actually exists in my heart, as evidenced by you coming back again and again, to make the point, WHICH IS? I must be missing something, or is there another point you'd like to make about me that you dislike? From your perspective, I "hate," "threaten," am "bad," "narrow-minded," "prejudiced," "dangerous," etc. What more, if any, other of my supposed character traits do you wish to bring to everyone's attention? I've posted your views for everyone to read. What else would you like to say? Please let me know. I'll post that too for everyone to read.
You sound somewhat paranoid, in my opinion, for some unknown reason.
Wed 12/3/2008 12:33 PM:
Can't imagine why you're thanking me "for helping you out in so many
ways," when I never had any intention of doing so. Further, your website
has not provided me with any "solid conclusions" we can live with in my
life, so you can disabuse yourself of that thought.
Are candidate legal qualifications necessary to be a valid candidate for public office?
Are we still a nation of laws, or has politics completely trumped the US Constitution [Re: Obama (D)] and Ohio Election Laws [Re: Wenninger (R)]?
