Richard Wiles has worked hard in the last two years as Sheriff. Oh no, not to keep us safe. He has worked very hard to keep any controversy under wraps and has worked very hard to do what he can not to enforce laws like the people of El Paso had elected him to do. But you guys know me. I'm the last person to give him a pass on anything. So here we go.
You would think the El Paso Sheriff's Department and Bill Ellis would learn their lesson and take precautions on who they hired next. Right? Well they didn't. Bill Ellis likes a certain type of employee and he is very consistent with who he hires. December 14, 2009, just a month after Herrara was fired from his personal assistant position, the El Paso Sheriff's Department hires Daniel Lynn Rollings and pays him $9.80 an hour to pretty much be Ellis' personal assistant that included pushing his wheel chair around. I don't think that is a mandated position either. So what is the big deal you ask? Well, Daniel Lynn Rollings has a little bit of a past. According to a story in the Las Cruces Sun News Daniel Lynn Rollings was caught in a gay porn controversy with Gadsden School District Board of Trustees back in 2004.
But it doesn't stop at the Sheriff's Department. Rollings/Steele is one of the henchman for the Lyda Ness-Garcia Campaign. He uses county equipment and time to look up people who publicly speak out against him or Lyda Ness-Garcia. You know, the kind of stuff that KVIA aired several "Public Service Announcements" for Lyda-Ness-Garcia accusing her opponent Ann Morgan Lilly of doing. I guess it is one of those do as I say and not as I do kind of things. Is this the type of person we want on city council? Come on El Paso. Look at the facts and put an end to the insanity.
