Lamb is running as a "constitutional Sheriff's candidate" in Greene County, Illinois, selling himself as an advocate for a more limited system of police intervention. He made a name for himself in 2011 for filming a cop drinking beer after a traffic stop, and he popped up again in 2013 for hanging an "Impeach Obama" banner over a highway overpass. But now he's managed to piss off the very same sheriff's office he's running for.
Indeed, current Greene County Sheriff Robert McMillan didn't appreciate Lamb using Facebook to allegedly advise a juror to "Nullify, nullify, nullify!" and to "Hang the jury, if necessary" in a traffic case in January. Lamb is now facing a felony for unlawful communication with a juror, a charge his lawyer has stated "reeks of small-town political retribution."More »
