UPDATE: Grant County's top elected official plans to talk with sheriff about the investigation. 

The state Justice Department has opened a criminal investigation into Grant County Sheriff Glenn Palmer, who met with militants from the wildlife refuge takeover in eastern Oregon and urged authorities to concede to some of their demands.

The investigation will be handled by theCriminal Justice Division in Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum's office. The division investigates public corruption as part of its duties.

Justice Department officials wouldn't comment on the focus of the investigation other than to confirm they are examining one of nine complaints passed along by the state agency that regulates police officers. The complaints have been filed since late January.

Palmer, 54, who has been sheriff since 2000, has said he won't comment to The Oregonian/OregonLive on any matter.

He is the third sheriff currently enmeshed in state criminal investigations.Klamath County Sheriff Frank Skrah has been indicted on assault and official misconduct charges but remains in office. The Justice Department recently opened an investigation into Multnomah County Sheriff Dan Staton for alleged misconduct involving office employees.


Another political move! Looks like they'll do anything to save BLM and their underhanded tactics. This is coming from the state of Oregon. I used to have different opinion of that state, but it appears that all the large cities have been taken over by the same disease as Washington D.C.

Well, the whitehouse is openly supporting MOVEON, which by definition is a domestic terrorist organization, therefor, our government is hijacked by multinational terrorist organizations which seek to utilize local and state governments to enforce the terrorists agenda. I am hardly surprised since they kill non-violent protesters, yet endorse the violent  ones. Anyone who still thinks that our government works in our best interest is naive at best.
