Sheriff Mike Chitywood: Farce Behind the Force / Headline SurferBy HENRY FREDERICK

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- During her 2016 campaign for a seat on the Volusia County Council, former sheriff's deputy adamantly denied claims by her opponent  resisted claims by her opponent that she had used illicit drugs like cocaine and marijuana by her own admission in a polygraph test, a document she asserted was a forgery.

Fast forward to the present and Volusia County government has perhaps gone through the most politically-divisive stretch of vitriol in the past couple of months led by the 1-2 punch of Post, a former deputy, and Sheriff Mike Chitwood.

Headline Surfer carefully combed through 4,439 pages Post's personnel file and discovered yet another document which showed Post's acknowledgment of illicit drug use prior to her employment with the Volusia County Sheriff's Office. In a March 5, 2008 affidavit, Post, then known as Heather Brady before her marriage to Randy Post, a deputy with the VCSO, circled "YES" to a question in an application supplement that asked: Have you ever used any illegal narcotics in the past (to include marijuana)?

Post's acknowledgment was sworn to, signed and then notarized.
