Mike Sharp admits to porn emails. UPDATED

We have no problem with adults viewing legal erotic materials in the privacy of their home, but to be sending them around law enforcement offices like a snickering teen-age boy shows a striking lack of maturity. Mike Sharp has admitted to this kind of juvenile behavior. (Update: registration with the Star might now be required to see the article.)

Perhaps we should look to a person with better judgment to revive our struggling county Sheriff's department. Besides, as we noted below, Sharp is most likely a Republican anyway.

UPDATE: Saturday, the Kansas City Star, which endorsed Sharp last week, withdrew its endorsement and instead recommends John Bullard for Sheriff. We agree. Too bad the Star had to base their initial choice on their usual 'what-big-wigs-support-him' method, and not the obvious skills and experience Bullard has that Sharp does not. Might have saved the paper some embarrassment...

Good for you I am sure everyone out there agrees. The majority of the Deputies believe in John Bullard. He has the experience and integrity neccessary to do a good job. However Mike Sharp is a strong contender because he has used part of his personal fortune, over $200,000 to fund his attempt in this race.

And we all know that Republicans hate to lose. Please show up early and often on election day.
