At nearly noon today, challenging Sheriff candidate Boyd Brown dropped his formal election filing with election board officials, in an effort to get the bumbling and crooked incumbent, Hans Miller, out of office.
Boyd’s filing makes him the third official candidate in the race, following Hans Miller who announced his candidacy early in July of 2017 – months before any official filing period – and has since stirred up rumors of a setup against himself via his phony account, “Norbert Bayer”. Norbert Bayer is a fake account that Miller deleted as soon as he logged on to News In Onslow and saw that he was exposed in August of 2017, but not before information affirmatively linking him to the phony was captured.
While only time will tell, Boyd so far seems to be running a clean campaign, tackling Miller’s underhanded and dirty tactics head on. Boyd so far has outlined a detailed and fair response to Miller’s efforts to discredit him, while Miller has remained silent behind his fake accounts and crutches against the work of his employees. He also seems to love his ability to solicit votes on the public’s dime and property. Much to his advantage, he’s the only person he has permitted to advertise and solicit for votes at or on OCSO property.
Hans Miller is allegedly in violation of the “Personnel Policy Manual” by having this poster posted inside the Onslow County Sheriff’s Office.
According to the Personnel Policy Manual below, Miller can’t use county “equipment” to advertise. Is Hans Miller misusing county property for political gain?
As locals will recall, Miller claimed he was a victim in 2014, and as result defeated incumbent Ed Brown and escalated himself from a one-man “chief” of a building to the Sheriff’s Office where he now wears phony 5-star general’s rank, instead of the phony Marine Colonel insignia that Camp Lejeune had stripped him of.
Miller has tried to capitalize on the same claim twice so far this election cycle: once by using a phony “bot” account Norbert Bayer (much like the Russian meddling) by claiming a setup at his hangout the “Angry Ginger”, and yet again by direct messaging citizens with his alleged “dirt” on Boyd; information he promises to release for political reasons and no matter what the statutes state about the confidentiality of criminal investigations! He sure didn’t do that with the Will Clifton investigation!
If Miller really believed that Boyd was involved in a theft, then he is the person directly responsible for enforcing the law and holding Boyd accountable. Failure to perform those duties, under state law, would merit his removal from office. One must ask – why does this only surface at election time and at the hands of a crooked, or perhaps the most crooked, of cops?
Somehow, Miller has decided to act like the dirty cat he is and use his own wild and crazy imagination for political leverage. He is spreading his dirt from multiple “bot” accounts. We think he’s a bit deep in the “sauce”, or maybe just whacky from all those bier-fueled accidents.
The third candidate, John Yopp, has yet to make a showing at the Board, and no signs of his candidacy seem to exist since 1 January of this year. Perhaps his campaign has fizzled entirely, leaving a narrowed field for more prominent challengers.
Old curmudgeon, Walter Scott, is still in the ring. A former public relations officer for the county – doubts are beginning to surface about his competency. Is he fit to fill the shoes of the Onslow County Sheriff? One source has advised News In Onslow, “OMFG. He’s a nice guy at home, but a total idiot! What a joke! “. Little info has otherwise surfaced.
As things heat up between primary challengers Boyd and Hans, be sure to stay tuned to News In Onslow. We’ll bring you the real dirt before anyone knows it’s coming!

Voters to choose party nominees in Primary Election Day
North Carolina voters are choosing their parties’ nominees in dozens of legislative and congressional primary races congested with contestants.
More than 35 current General Assembly members and eight congressional incumbents are trying to advance through Tuesday’s primary elections.
Sitting members of Congress seeking re-election include House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows and Rep. Patrick McHenry, the chief deputy whip in the House. The most threatened GOP incumbents may be Reps. Robert Pittenger of Charlotte and Walter Jones of Farmville.
A little over 4 percent of the state’s 6.9 million registered voters cast ballots before Tuesday through early in-person or traditional absentee voting. Some registrants had no primaries in which to vote because there are no statewide races on Tuesday’s ballot.
You can find voter information including your registered polling precinct and a sample ballot for your area at the North Carolina State Board of Elections & Ethics Enforcement website. The polls are open from 6:30am-7:30 pm.
