Parody: Sheriff Mike Chitwood tip toes through the Law Enforcement Lip Sync Challenge

Sheriff Mike Chitwood / Farce Behind the Force / Headline SurferThis is a continuing series looking at the factual allegations behind the ethical, legal & morally-corrupt acts of Volusia County Sheriff Mike Chitwood, who won a 5-way primary outright on Aug. 30, 2016, to succeed 16-year-incumbent Ben Johnson. Chitwood took over Jan. 1, 2017, with a campaign promise to lead from the front. But that promise has never materialized. Instead, Chitwood has used his office for his own personal pecuniary, political and personal gain. Chitwood is a blatant liar, cheater, and opportunist who continues to use taxpayer resources to carry out his own petty agenda to gain control of county government.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- You've got to check out the 'Scumbag Eradicator' himself, Mike Chitwood, Volusia County, Florida's tough-talking Sheriff as you've never seen or heard him before -- as he does the Law Enforcement Lip Sync Challenge and blows the competition away!

Chitwood's video parody has gone viral on YouTube: 4,796 visits since its premiere Aug. 3.

No wonder all his deputies are quitting in droves. The ones he hasn't yet fired, at least. It won't be long before the Grammy's start calling.

And what better backdrop for "Microphone Mike" himself than the mainstream media -- principally WESH Ch 2, WKMG Ch 6, WFTV Ch 9, Central Florida News 13, WOFL Ch 35, WNDSB 1150 AM Radio, the Orlando Sentinel and the Daytona Beach News-Journal.
