Georgia sheriff revels in 'politically incorrect' sign

Georgia sheriff revels in 'politically incorrect' sign

HAMILTON, Ga. (AP) — If you don't like a Georgia sheriff's political incorrectness, you can leave his county.

That's what Harris Sheriff Mike Jolley warns on a new sign posted outside his department building.

The sign reads: "Warning: Harris County is politically incorrect. We say: Merry Christmas, God Bless America and

In God We Trust. We salute our troops and our flag. If this offends you. Leave!"

Sheriff Mike Jolley installed the sign Tuesday. Jolley tells local media that he paid for the sign himself and wanted to give voice to what he considers to be a "silent majority."

Jolley says he has received overwhelming support from the community and plans to install more of the signs around the county. Some residents have offered to pay for them.
