Vote count for controversial Sheriff's candidate still not complete

Votes for a controversial political figure are being counted in Schuylkill County.

Suspended Gilberton Police Chief Mark Kessler encouraged voters to write him in on the ballot for Schuylkill County Sheriff.

Un-official results say he received less than 740 write-in votes.

To compare officials say incumbent candidate Joseph Groody received more than 20,000 votes.

Kessler received national attention and the suspension after posting profane gun-rights videos on YouTube.
