Kris Palmer 4 Sheriff has announced the discovery that Kris Palmer and his wife, who make more than $434,200 per year, have been trying to get their Sacramento area Dad on welfare housing through a federal public assistance HUD program.
Palmer, a Placer County resident with a big house and spare rooms, needed Dad’s welfare to be at least “$950 per month”, and didn’t want to contribute even $1 to help Dad live with dignity. “Taxpayers should pay for him” thought Kris Palmer.
You know those damned lazy liberal free-loading Socialists? The ones who are always finding a way to exploit the System and make hard-working taxpayers pay the bill?
Kris Palmer certainly seems to fit that bill, except he recently registered as a Republican and will be eligible to vote for his first time ever in the upcoming June election. But, if he doesn’t move into Sacramento County soon, then he won’t even be able to vote for himself.
This wealthy Republican family makes more than 99% of other families in the United States, with a household income of over $434,200 per year. Clearly they need to work the System to get welfare public assistance through HUD vouchers, right?
As a Captain in 2016, Kris Palmer was already making $264,229.81. That’s far more than any State lawmaker. And that’s more than even the Governor of the State of California makes.
Then, in early 2017, Palmer received an additional $50,000 per year salary bump when he was promoted by Sheriff Scott Jones to Chief Deputy. A whopping $314,229 as a “public servant” feeding at the public trough, without so much as a day of patrol or arresting any bad guys.
Now at $314,229.91, plus Palmer’s wife’s $120,000+ per year salary as a Banking officer, you’d think their combined $434,229+ per year salaries would be enough for avoid welfare for their nearby dad. Wouldn’t you?
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Developing offers the “HUD vouchers” as “the federal government’s major program for assisting very low-income families, the elderly, and the disabled to afford decent, safe, and sanitary housing in the private market.”
These low-income vouchers were created as a safety net for the truly needy, and when no other options are available. HUD vouchers make sure the vulnerable elderly are not living in dangerous or uninhabitable housing which endangers their health and well-being. There are not enough HUD vouchers to go around, and many elderly are surviving on just one meal per day because their living expenses are too high.
HUD vouchers are not designed for wealthy families to avoid their financial responsibilities of taking care of immediate family members, and honoring their parents by keeping them off of welfare by helping out when they so easily can. The Palmer family has their own big house, with plenty of room, and could either give Dad a room or else contribute the $700 per month for him to live in a studio apartment with dignity.
Since Kris Palmer resides in Placer County, and will need a Sacramento residence to be Sacramento Sheriff, maybe Palmer is thinking he can use his Dad’s new Sacramento address. Yet another way to scam the System. Aren’t bankers known for looking for new ways to screw over customers?
Clearly this 1%-er duo thought they had found a way to milk the System for public assistance and not get caught. “No more than $950 per month” Palmer’s wife said, because they don’t want to add even $1 more to Dad’s living situation.
A candidate who the Harvey Weinstein of Sheriffs, Scott Jones, claims has “more honor” than anyone else, Kris Palmer’s pursuit of welfare housing for his local father shows otherwise. Local glutton John McGinness never misses an opportunity to gush over Palmer and plug the candidate.
Obviously we should consider the source of that “more honor” comment. No-one I know would ‘so honorably‘ put their father into welfare housing when he didn’t need to be there.
Both Scott Jones and John McGinness were sheriffs during the Department’s worst sexual discrimination, racial discrimination, records falsification, and retaliatory investigations lawsuit in the history of all law enforcement agencies throughout California. Palmer was a manager directly over the Plaintiffs who sued the Department. The Sheriff’s Department lost that harassment case (34-2010-00091514) in 2016, costing Sacramento taxpayers more than $10.4 million in payouts.
