Hasn't her presence (or lack thereof) at the Clerk's office been an issue for years?

make an example of her and deny her retirement benfits. make her sue the town if she wants them and tie her up in court for MANY years. Maybe she'll expire before lebanon gives her a dime.

this is long overdue all over the united states

That is an excellent idea - do you think the "good ole boy system" is working on that?

Seems to me the hard working Wilson County folks need to get involved and take action - you know, the ones who actually work for their paychecks and pay Neal's salary?

The people who have been paying "the lucky one's" salary all these years are really the only ones that can do anything about it. Will they? I'd love to see it happen and not stop just in Lebanon, Tennessee.

Interesting is that most people have no idea just how much power a court clerk actually has and how many IOU's a career one can rack up covering for malfeasant judges, attorneys and doing dubious paper work shuffling for "family". If you have an overtly for sale justice system that supplies as much justice as people can afford, I can assure you for that to fly it takes a dubious clerk and deputies (who by the way are not prohibited by their oath, from accepting bribes, grafts, etc.... whereas the clerk is) that bend the rules and ignore the ethical canons as easily as they breathe.

Why does a clerk's deputies have a different oath? Anyone half awake knows exactly why. Why are they paid by the session instead of a reasonable monthly salary? Doesn't this give them financial incentives to assist as possible to keep people tied up in the system? It does and they are only greedy humans just like most everyone else.

How many BPR or Judiciary Complaints has Ms. Neal filed in her career? None would be par for most Tennessee clerks despite them seeing plenty of wrong and being bound by their oaths to file complaints.

None of anybody needs to stay in elected office long enough to get a lifetime paycheck and benefits.

I do hope the people of Lebanon deny her ANYTHING except a fight and do everything in their power to hold her accountable for any misappropriated funds. The nepotism, which is against this state's laws, is bad enough, but, to LIE and STEAL a paycheck she hasn't earned make her no better than any extraordinary or even COMMON thief over whom she has watched go through the process and forced to pay the price.

You'll find out who she has plenty of dirt on as they will be in her corner and setting up all manners of hurdles and smoke screens.

PLENTY of clerks, attorney generals and judges in this state need to be replaced and replaced OFTEN.
hmmmm

NONE OF THIS, 80K a year after being proven a dirt bag?

He too should have had to pay back what he didn't earn and forced to walk with NOTHING. Why it didn't happen that way? See the post above.

It doesn't have to be that way for the people in Lebanon.

OH how far from the truth can she stray??

“I haven’t put down a single rule in that office for those ladies to follow that I wouldn’t do myself."

Don't "those ladies" have to show up Monday through Friday if they want to get paid and keep their job??

I don't believe that is how they are paid.......... I think they are paid by the session which may or may not tend to give them an incentive to keep you coming back and often

This should be changed in this state along with many other things.

strictly by the hour and no per/session spiffs at all?

that isn't that way everywhere and regardless, the clerk and her deputies all need to go, especially the one that violates the nepotism law.

Vote OUT everyone who works in that office with Linda Neal..She has professionally taught them how to steal from everyone..Felicia will be NO BETTER!!! Vote for someone who has NOT had any connection in the coverup of embezzlement in that clerks office!!!!!! That's why Felicia has to go as well as some other "girls" who work in that office!!

don't stop there........ its likely something would already have been done about this if other elected people in a position to bring decisive action weren't in compromised situations

everyone wants their back scratched and it turns into cancer in so many places
