    Sheriff candidate admits receiving, forwarding racy e-mails while a reserve KC detective

    By KEVIN MURPHY
    The Kansas City Star
    Jackson County sheriff candidate Mike Sharp acknowledged Wednesday that he was once part of an e-mail exchange among city and county law officers that included images of nude women.

    Sharp received e-mails with pictures attached at his police e-mail address while a reserve detective for Kansas City police in 2003. He used his personal e-mail account to forward three such e-mails to other people.

    One e-mail, which had an attached video showing a woman in a sex act, went to Sharp and about 12 Kansas City officers and 25 Jackson County deputies, sergeants and other officers. Although not illegal, the sexually explicit e-mails are prohibited by city and county personnel rules.

    The Kansas City Star obtained several e-mails from someone who had received them. The e-mails are also on at least two Web sites, with recipients’ names redacted.

    Sharp, one of four Democrats running in Tuesday’s primary, said he regretted the e-mails.

    “In retrospect, it was probably not the best thing to do,” Sharp said. “It was an e-mail list with some buddies of mine. If I had it to do all over again, I would never have done it.”

    Sharp said that he no longer is part of any such e-mail exchange and that as sheriff he would not allow his employees to send or receive e-mails with nude or pornographic attachments.

    Sharp was a reserve homicide detective for the Kansas City Police Department from 1999 to 2007. He was not paid but had a police e-mail address and was called in to work when needed.

    Kansas City police adopted a policy in 2001 prohibiting employees from viewing or transmitting sexually explicit images over e-mail or the Internet, said Rich Lockhart, spokesman for the department.

    “Any of our employees should know they are not to do this,” Lockhart said.

    Lockhart said he did not know if Sharp violated the policy or to what extent, if any, other officers sent on e-mails they received. Lockhart said any abuses of the policy are investigated internally.

    Jackson County has had a policy prohibiting use of e-mail or the Internet to display, store or distribute sexually explicit images since 1995.

    Ronda Montgomery, a sergeant and spokeswoman for the department, said she was not aware that some 25 officers received e-mail with sexually-explicit attachments in 2003. She said viewing or transmitting such material is absolutely forbidden.

    Mike Mauer and Tom Krahenbuhl, two of the four Democratic candidates for sheriff, said Sharp’s inclusion in the e-mail should be an issue in the campaign.

    “It’s outrageous,” Mauer said. “I’d think women in the community would be quite upset about this. And if you are talking about the top law enforcement officer in Jackson County, it says something about his integrity.”

    Mauer said someone in the sheriff’s office getting those e-mails in 2003 should have done something to stop it.

    Another candidate, John Bullard, said sex-related e-mails should not be exchanged among law officers but he said the Sharp e-mails of five years ago should not be an issue in the sheriff’s campaign.

    “We need to concentrate on what will happen in the sheriff’s office next year, not (what happened) five years ago,” Bullard said. “As far as I’m concerned, this is water under the bridge.”

                I hate to say it, but stuff like this goes on all over the country if it be on accident or on purpose. Sounds like either someone got mad at some or purposely brought this up to advance their campaign. I'm sure there is no way the other candidates are totally squeaky clean. I would say look out it's going to be open season in your area.
