In southwestern Iowa a local sheriff fired a janitor because he made fun of him for getting “enforcer” painted on his car. The janitor had words with the sheriff before he was let go:
“He said, ‘I hear you have a problem with me having this car,’” Lippert said. “I said, ‘Since you asked, yes, I do. I think that’s too much to be spending on a car.’ Then he said, ‘Well, I’m the sheriff. I can have the car that I want.’”
Lippert said the banter continued for awhile and culminated when Hefel said, “I also hear you think I’m a bad sheriff.”
“I said, yes, that I did think that, and then he told me I was a bad janitor,” Lippert said. “So I told him to fire me. He said he was working on it.”
Lippert began walking away but said he decided to turn around to have his last say.
“I said, ‘You know, Leo, you can fire me for being a bad janitor, but you’ll always be a rotten sheriff,’” Lippert said.
