Forsyth County deputy: Supporting Duane Piper cost me my job

Forsyth County politics is interesting, I’ll say that. I recently got a press release alleging sign stealing, and another one claiming misuse of county information in a campaign. In addition to the ethics complaint alleging illegal campaign mailings that I covered in a previous post, there’s this.  Blame it on an impolitic facebook post. WSB-TV has the report on the termination of Deputy Rodney Pirkle, who claims that his facebook post stating that he was supporting incumbent sheriff Ted Paxton’s opponent, Duane Piper, cost him his job.
