McDermott and Johnson announced their plans to run as sheriff and undersheriff, respectively.
It also upholds Johnson's belief that Ibsen retaliated against him after he complained of the discrimination.
Johnson, now a detective, alleged he lost part of his pay, was required to use his own vacation time to attend official grievance meetings and was forced to work in a noisy area Cheap Michael Kors Outlet commonly called "the pit."
He also was stripped of his office and his flexible schedule, the report stated.
Adding insult to injury, Johnson claimed, a copy of "Law Enforcement Oath of Honor" was taped to his computer screen in July.
"Our job is to uphold the law, and that's what Replica Sunglasses I feel like I am doing right now," Johnson said in an interview Friday. "It's super unfortunate that the sheriff is on the other side of this."
The state Human Rights Commission reviewed the case after Johnson filed a grievance with the county and several meetings between Johnson and the sheriff didn't result in a resolution.
"I like Carl Ibsen as a sheriff and a person," Johnson said. "But he dug his heels in on this a long time ago and will not budge."
Johnson said an official ruling will be announced after a Human Rights Commission hearing in May or June. Bill Burt, a friend and colleague of Ibsen, said he was surprised by Johnson's sudden removal from the PIO position "because Johnson and Ibsen had developed such a good working relationship, but also because of the amount of training and the related costs invested in Johnson."
On at least two occasions Ibsen told Burt he would "do anything within his power" to keep McDermott from being elected, the report stated. Burt said Ibsen even considered running for office again to keep McDermott from taking over.
Ibsen's vendetta against McDermott allegedly fueled his motivation to remove Johnson from his position as PIO, the report stated.
Unsworth also interviewed Missoula County human resources director Patty Baumgart, who said Ibsen complained Johnson was using his position to promote McDermott's candidacy, specifically on Facebook.
"She subsequently found that 'every officer under the sun' was (on the sheriff's department Facebook page) and that the effort appeared to be flattering all the officers of the department," the report stated.
