Sheriff Elder after he took the oath of office on Dec. 31, 2014.
Dirtyelder.com is still hard at it, finding ways to call into question how Sheriff Bill Elder is running the El Paso County Sheriff's Office.
The latest: The website obtained a copy of a letter of counseling for Lt. William Huffor, who was accused of sexual harassment of a female deputy last fall. The website reported on that
The so-called scandal is that after the allegation was made against Huffor, who's married to Elder's chief-of-staff Janet Huffor, Elder got rid of the Disciplinary Action Board, which oversaw such cases.

The letter of counseling sure makes it sound like sexual harassment might have been at play in the Huffor matter. It notes that what Huffor allegedly said to a female deputy "implies immoral, indecent or lewd behavior," the letter states. It also notes, "This is a serious violation of El Paso County Sheriff's Office policy...."
Yet, Huffor didn't suffer much punishment. He got a letter in his file and had to attend some training classes about "supervisor roles and responsibilities."
We asked Elder's spokesperson, Jackie Kirby, about the counseling letter and whether the sheriff was looking into how it was shared with an outsider.
She said via email, "It appears to be an authentic letter of counseling. We are not investigating how it was leaked."
Elder himself has said he doesn't read the website.
