Koivisto, 57, retired last week rather than face an investigation into the comments he made after Obama’s re-election. During his Nov. 9 interview, he also told the integrity unit he had said he would not be bothered if a nuclear explosion “killed them all,” referring to residents of Northeastern states struck by Hurricane Sandy. They were Obama supporters, he said.
He told colleagues: “If an order was given to kill Obama or something, then I wouldn’t mind being the guy.”
Sheriff John Rutherford said last week the comments were inappropriate for the workplace.
No Sheriff, the comments were inappropriate in or out of the workplace.
