When the towing company used by the Washtenaw County Sheriff's Dept. tore down Harvey's re-election campaign posters from the trees n front of ts building, Harvey responded by order ing a boycott of the company by all Sheriff's department personnel. County Prosecuter William Delhey (also up for re-election this fall) has said he can't see where Harvey has done anything Ilegal. But the prosecuters office is investigating what has happened to a stolen camper and snowmobiles which were recovered by the Sheriff's department. Fred Postill, Democratie nominee for Sheriff is charging that some of Harvey's relatives have been IIegally using the camper and its being said that Harvey allegedly "lost" the snowmobile when he and some relatives were joy-riding in it, flipped over and wrecked it. But even so , its hard to imagine Delhey taking any action against Harvey, especialV after he has refused to prosecute for the alledged beating of a photographer (who was ivorking for Postill) who was taking pictures of on duty deputies who were out putting up re-elect Harvey posters after they had signed out to "special assignment". Donald Norris, the 19 yr old Washtenaw County Jail prisoner who was urged by Sheriff's candidate Fred Postill to file a $1 million negligance suit against Sheriff Harvey because he was allegedly attacked and raped by six fellow prisoners last winter, had to be rushed to Univeristy Hospital along with two deputies to be treated for smoke inhalation after the mattress in his cell was set afire.
