An anonymous e-mail, accusing Jefferson County Sheriff candidate Charles F. “Chuck” Ruggiero of posting a “racist” comment on the Facebook wall of a sheriff’s deputy, was sent Thursday morning to Newzjunky.com and newspaper reporter David C. Shampine.
The author, whose name is not shown in the address bar, copied and pasted a screen shot of Deputy Sheriff Shaun D. Cuddeback’s Facebook page entitled “Profile Pictures.”
