Who is Sheriff Richard Mack?

  • Mack believes sheriffs should decide which laws to enforce.

  • Mack leads the Oath Keepers, one of the militia organizations that turned the January 6th protest violent, resulting in severe injuries and deaths of police officers.

Richard Mack is a former lobbyist and failed political candidate. He used to be a sheriff in Arizona before voters ousted him in 1997, and he now he’s going after the election system with debunked evidence from Dinesh D’Souza’s 2000 Mules movie.

Mack has announced a new movement of sheriffs, who swore to protect and to serve, who will terrorize the election system by banding together to meddle in the process, starting with charging state election officials with felonies for measures they took to facilitate safe voting in nursing homes during the pandemic. It’s likely the movement will continue to biasly investigate and prosecute other unfounded claims of election fraud after the 2022 midterm elections. 

As founder of the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association (CSPOA), Mack advocates making sheriffs the highest law of the land. Though highly condemned by republicans and democrats alike, he believes that county sheriffs can refuse to enforce federal laws they don’t like. 

 

Mack also sat on the board of the anti-government militia group, the Oath Keepers, until 2015. In 2021, members of the Oath Keepers attacked the U.S. Capitol on January 6th in an effort to overturn the 2020 presidential election. That attack ultimately killed five police officers and injured more than 140. Various leaders within the Oath Keepers have pleaded guilty to seditious conspiracy for their role in the riots.

Mack Believes County Sheriffs Have More Power Than the President

In the American system, law enforcement is an arm of the government meant to uphold the laws we set as a society. It is the legislature's job to pass laws that embody the will of the people. It is law enforcement's job to make sure we follow them. This separation keeps any one arm of the government from becoming too powerful.

 

Undermining the rules which have governed our nation since 1776, Mack completely disregards the separation of power our founding fathers designed. Richard Mack claims that county sheriffs can refuse to enforce laws they don’t like, giving them more power than the president of the United States. 

 

Mack believes that rogue sheriffs making up their own laws instead of following the democratic process is the best way to govern America, and the best way to improve election integrity.
