Greenville County, Sheriff Will Lewis

This petition had 176 supporters

The Sheriff of Greenville County should be a moral compass of our community, a top-notch leader that sets a great example for the rest of the police force and someone who sits in a public office seat that requires that individual to be held at a high standard. What Sheriff Will Lewis has publicly admitted to doing goes against everything listed above. Anyone sleeping with a direct subordinate and using company money (tax payer money in this instance) to pay for their affair would be terminated immediately from any other company. Councilman Joe Dill as he explained some of the audit. "It was a bad decision to allow Nabors to make that much more money. But the laws in place at the present time, it was within his privilege to make that determination." His misconduct with females within the department dates back to 2012 and this type of behavior needs to stop (his conduct hearing is available on youtube). Ask how this affects his job? The Sheriffs Association of SC dropped his membership. This keeps him from attending “critical training events, information sharing sessions and other Association sponsored events". In addition, there's an on-going SLED investigation, forensics audit, and a law suit against the sheriff's office. So time, money, and resources by multiple agencies are having to deal with this. He's been in office roughly a year and we have 3 to go. Why are we tolerant of less of a standard for the sheriff of our fine city? Sign this petition if you want him to step down as sheriff. Greenville deserves better.
