Season 3[edit | edit source]
In "Loose Ends", he discusses his plan to "fix" the votes so that Tillman Napier is re-elected, but that they have to be careful with it because the VFW is pretty quick to know a fix when they see it. He says that they will make sure that during the debate, Napier will score with the crowd but he will gavel out before Shelby has a chance to respond back. Harvey gives Napier the upper hand in the debate, but soon Boyd arrives and manages to help Shelby's case out by explaining that Shelby was implicated in a robbery by the hated Blackpike Coal -- and who would believe that dishonest firm? The charismatic Boyd soon has the crowd in a frenzy. "I'm not saying you're a bad man, Mr. Napier, but I do know that you've been feeding too long at the public trough!" Boyd says. The crowd cheers. Harvey pounds his gavel, but it's drowned out.
In "Guy Walks Into a Bar", Jones is now hired by Ellstin Limehouse to assist Boyd Crowder's side in the election against Napier. After Napier wins re-election and is celebrating in his office with Robert Quarles, Shelby and Jones show up where Jones delivers some bad news to Napier. Due to Napier's estranged sister Hanna being on his payroll, election rules state that Napier has to relinquish his title of Sheriff to the runner-up of the election.
