Hurley Hit Piece: Smearing Atlantic County Sheriff Scheffler

WPG radio man, Harry Hurley practicing watchdog journalism during time of crisis? Whistle-blower news? Or was this just another Hurley political smear? A despicable hit piece during this difficult time? Hurley is well known for mean-spirited stuff like this.

According to Harry Hurley: Well placed sources within the Atlantic County Sheriff’s department have blown the whistle. A most serious allegation has also been made that Atlantic County Sheriff Eric Scheffler knew about an Officer’s hospitalization and kept the news from the rank and file for an extended time frame “in a cover-up.”

Typical Harry Hurley Political Smear? Nothing But a Hit Piece?

Scheffler says: the “impeccable source” cited by Harry recklessly provided false information.

“As the Atlantic County Sheriff, I am greatly disappointed in an article published today by a local radio host/journalist. I have always maintained a good working relationship with Harry Hurley and am surprised that he never tried to reach out to me directly in an effort to confirm or deny the allegations contained in his article. Simply stated, those allegations against me are completely false and inaccurate. Apparently there was absolutely no effort made to confirm any of the information with the subjects of the article. A simple telephone call to either myself or other subjects of the article would have avoided the spread of misinformation during a time where factual information is more important than ever.
