In defense of Wharton

July 15, 2014 

After reading BND letter writer Kevin Sheridan's disgusting statement about former St. Clair County Judge Milton Wharton, accusing him of being a leech and an Uncle Tom, I became quite angry.

I have known Wharton for most of his adult life and have found him to be the most honorable gentleman I have had the pleasure of knowing.

It would be most interesting for Sheridan to compare his successes, if he has any, to Wharton's.
