The Democratic candidate for Bucks County Sheriff is asking the state to release information from an investigation into the office, which is led by the sheriff he wants to unseat.
In an email blast to the media on Friday, Dennis McCauley said he’s requested the findings of a state Attorney General probe that began in 2011. So far no official findings have been released.
"My request is for the results, whatever they are," McCauley told BucksInq in an email on Friday. "Maybe the results exonerate the department. Maybe they don't. Who knows? Nobody in Bucks County, that's for sure."
McCauley’s opponent in November is Edward “Duke” Donnelly, a Republican who’s been in office for 10 years. During that time a deputy sheriff has gone to jail for assaulting a handcuffed prisoner and then lying about it. The department has been under scrutiny for other alleged problems, such as lapsed firearms credentials and complaints of mismanagement.
