I’m sure this will come as a huge shock to you, but it’s pretty easy to get elected as a county sheriff while being a complete moron. Case in point, Sheriff Ben Wolfinger of Kootenai County, Idaho, who says he’s dropping his agency’s sponsorship of a Boy Scout troop because the group is now “promoting” sodomy, which he mistakenly thinks is illegal.
The Kootenai County Sheriff said Friday that he is compelled to drop the department’s Boy Scouts of America charter because the organization is promoting a lifestyle that is against state law.
“It would be inappropriate for the sheriff’s office to sponsor an organization that is promoting a lifestyle that is in violation of state law,” Sheriff Ben Wolfinger said.
Sodomy is against the law in Idaho, he added.
