Shaq Says He’s Running For Sheriff In 2020

Former NBA star Shaquille O'Neal is serious about wanting to be a sheriff, telling Atlanta TV station WXIA that he's going to run for the job in 2020.

Shaq said he hasn't decided where he's going to run, but “Fox News” says it will probably be in Henry County, Georgia, where he's a resident, and where the sheriff is up for re-election in 2020.

But, Shaq also has residency in Florida and could do it there, or he could move somewhere and establish residency before running in 3-years.

Shaq has been outspoken in his support of law enforcement and is an honorary deputy in Clayton County, although he has little actual policing experience.

Bill Clinton And James Patterson Writing Thriller Novel Together

Former President Bill Clinton and best-selling novelist James Patterson are writing a new thriller together, called “The President is Missing,” which will come out in June 2018.

The publishers say that the book is a unique blend of intrigue, suspense and behind-the-scenes global drama from the highest corridors of power.  Apparently, it will contain details that only a president could know.

This is Clinton's first work of fiction, but he has written 3 non-fiction books in the past: his memoir, “My Life,” and the books “Giving” and “Back to Work.”
