The investigation into Chippewa County’s new sheriff will continue.
The County Board last night voted to continue the investigation into Travis Hakes. There’s no new information in the case, but some supervisors want to see if they can find something new. Hakes is facing criticism after the investigation found he sent sexually suggestive memes to a former 911 dispatcher. The sheriff says he’s done nothing wrong, and says his political opponents are driving the investigation.
Chippewa County’s board is considering whether to ask the governor to remove Hakes as sheriff.
