Cory Voorhis, ex-ICE agent, sort of running for under sheriff job in Adams County

Cory Voorhis is still fighting to get his job back after being fired as an Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent for blowing the whistle in controversial fashion on a plea-bargaining practice. But he's also got his eye on a new gig. He's actively campaigning on behalf of James R. Fariello, an American Constitution Party candidate for Adams County sheriff -- and he confirms that Fariello has promised to appoint him as under sheriff if he wins.
