As voters could would start a petition to have this worthless lying skank impeached?? Any info on how to start it? We elected her, we should impeach her!! Not the Commissioners, the Republicans, or the State. She is not going to resign, she is getting paid to lie and con people. Could you just start one and post it in local businesses?? lol

I would suggest that the person or persons whom she answers to or reports to ask for her resignation. If she refuses, then fire her! When she won the election, I believe there was a public "swearing in" ceremony where she took an oath to uphold the office of auditor. She has proven that she didn't take that oath seriously and I feel that she needs to be removed from office. It's just like any other job; if you have an absentee problem, if you're not reliable, if you're consistently tardy, irresponsible and/or lazy...you're not going to keep your job very long..or shouldn't. I don't know why she would be the exception!
As far as the political party issue, if the Franklin County Republican Committee supported her, campaigned for her, and knew she was a registered Democrat...then shame on them! Party loyalty should mean something!

Thats the problem as an elected official she reports to NO one. Unless she commits a felony.

Are you serious? You honestly don't know any more than this about how your government works??? She is an elected official; she doesn't answer to anyone but the voters. This is why people need to pay attention to the person they are electing and not just vote the party line.

"According to the Indiana Constitution, an official can be impeached (removed from office) by a vote of the state Legislature or by a county circuit court for committing a crime.

An official automatically loses his/her office if they do not meet requirements under state law. Examples of those requirements include not being convicted of a felony, not being habitually intoxicated and the official residing in the district that elected them.

If an official does not meet the requirements, Any interested person can file a lawsuit in court to have the official removed. The court must then decide whether the complaints are true, and whether the official should be removed."

from an article on political corruption in the indianapolis recorder newspaper. the way i see it is, if the auditor does not commit a crime and still meets the requirements of an elected official. she is good to go. pay attention who you vote for people. she was 23 years old when she took office. pretty friggin' young. you can be pissed off about it all you want but there isnt anything you can do about it. she is having a bad run. lighten up.

none of this stuff applies. what did she do to falsify a candidate declaration? trust me, its not running on a different ticket. she's done other things since being elected that may be a problem, but you're barking up the wrong tree.

A candidate signs the declaration under the penalties of perjury. One affirms by signature that the statements made in the declaration are true. If barking up the tree was no big deal, there wouldn't be laws about falsifying that information nor would one have to affirm anything under the penalties of perjury.

taking the risk of being accused of redundancy, i will re-post this portion of indiana code........"All questions concerning the validity of a declaration of candidacy filed with a circuit court clerk shall be referred to and determined by the county election board not later than noon fifty-four (54) days before the date of the primary election. A statement questioning the validity of a declaration must be filed with the county election board under IC 3-8-1-2(c) not later than noon sixty-seven (67) days before the date of the primary election."......time is of the essence.

What is with our commissioners? This chick shows up after how many months and nobody says where the @** have you been?
Why didn't she take the minutes if she was there?
Call in the state for an audit. I'm sure the books are a mess.

If you all recall, the auditor informed the commissioners that she was going on sick leave months ago (this statement was in the paper months ago). She's been sick for God's sake. Now, if I were a commissioner or a community member I would think I would be mindful of what I say in a public forum, Mr. Wison, as you are open to legal action. Provisions were made for her absence and all was kosher. She's been ill and at this point in the game, as she has returned to work, I would say that the slander and harassment needs to stop. This county has already been put on the media map as a backward, mismanaged, redneck, good ol' boys operated mess. Why would anyone want to continue to add to this image.

This, I surely did not know. Does somewhat change my opinion.

If she is on sick leave, is there not procedures for sick leave (fmla) to be followed. I>E> I know you all scream HIPPA, but that does not preclude your employer at least knowing why you will be out. You can't just decide to go on sick leave. It has to be requested, forms to fill out and approval by doctor and employer. Employer can't be left out of the info chain. Something stinks to hi heaven on this one.

Elected officials are not employees therefore they do not have an employer, nor does FMLA apply. She chose to not show up to work for health reasons, HOWEVER, she is still responsible during her absence! She cost the county $4,000 during that time and she chose to not communicate with her office while she was out for an extended period of time. That is negligence in performing her duties as auditor.
