Green Running For Sheriff? Senator?

From John Green for (Kootenai County) Sheriff Facebook wall comes a number of Hard Right positions, including his stand that the “federal government has no authority to regulate firearms within the state of Idaho.” Another entitled “Sound Money” seems to indicate Green is running for the state Senate rather than sheriff. It reads: “The monetary system of the United States is a perversion of Logic and Justice. It subverts the Natural Law and allows for and, in fact, fosters crime and poverty. Our founding Fathers provided us with a Constitutional standard of measure that allows us to protect our wealth and calculate value. That standard is the Constitutional Dollar, a fixed unit of measure. As an Idaho Senator, I will work to ensure that the State of Idaho protects its citizens from the fraud of “fiat” money. You can read John Green's positions yourself here. (Photo from John Green for Sheriff Facebook page)

Question: After reading sheriff candidate John Green's position statements, can you tell us how many have to do with the operation of the office of sheriff?

Duane: Conservatives Were Upbeat

Duane Rasmussen: Yes I was there. It was a very up beat type of program. I saw people from Rally Right, Reagan Republicans, Panhandle Pachyderms, North Idaho Pachyderms, Women Republicans, the Tea Party organizations and most if not all the Republican Central Committees in the five northern counties of Idaho. John Cross who is the Republican Region One Chairman, played a prominent roll as did Representative Phil Hart, Representative Vito Barbieri, Representative Dick Harwood and Kootenai Sheriff candidate, John Green (pictured). Mr. Green recited an event when as a young Deputy Sheriff and he was sent to back up two IRS agents who where conducting a seizure of assets. He stated that he should have arrested the agents then and there but did not have the knowledge and courage to do so at the time. He promised that things will be different when he becomes Sheriff. There was significant talk about RINOs and a degree of gloating about the progress Conservatives had made against the Rino’s in the Kootenai County Republican Central Committee.

Question: A favorite of the Hard Right in Kootenai County is sheriff's candidate John Green (pictured). Ever heard of him?
