Sex scandal sheriff Terry Maketa apology video, alternative subtitles version
More photos below.
El Paso County Sheriff Terry Maketa is admitting he's been a bad, bad boy. After he was targeted with allegations about improper relations with several women on his staff, not to mention promotions based on sexual favors, the county commissioners unanimously passed a vote of no confidence. But he has no plans to resign, and this weekend, he sent employees a video obtained by the Colorado Springs Gazette in which he mixed apologies with statements about his intention to serve out his term.
The clip is of such dubious quality that the Gazette has added subtitles that make the results even more awkward -- and they've inspired us to come up with subtitles for the other subtitles revealing what Maketa may have been thinking. Look below to check out the strange results, followed by the original video.
What he may have been thinking: "I tried to get out of it, but my wife made me."
What he may have been thinking: "Has anyone seen my pants?"
What he may have been thinking: "I've seen this work for criminals before, so I thought I'd give it a try."
What he may have been thinking: "Yep, you guessed it. I'm not going anywhere."
What he may have been thinking: "By 'better,' I mean better at the good behavior stuff. I'm already excellent at bad behavior." Continue for more of the Sheriff Terry Maketa apology, alternative subtitles version.Next Page
