Considering he's under investigation himself, I doubt any of the firings will end up sticking.

And I sure as hell wouldn't work for the man after reading the comments he made about women.

I wouldn't be too fast to judge what he may have said. I have worked in more than one setting where women have made accusations against someone they didn't like that were totally false. I wouldn't believe the woman or Mr. Strickland's denials until more evidence was brought than her word. She obviously is angered by the man for firing her. Also, that office had a lot of bad things going on during previous two assessors tenures...they both have received legal sentences. Perhaps the whole office needs to be replaced since none of them reported anything illegal going on during the two previous regimes...surely someone there knew something was amiss.

Yes, lots of things going on there...cover ups....$60,000.00 stolen from inmates accounts and the person in charge of the money got fired and that is all. My question is why is this person not sitting behind bars for stealing this money. We as tax payers are having to pay this money back while the person who stole it is out walking free as a bird to do it again at their next job. This person is a thief and needs to pay for what they did. This makes me fighting mad!!!!!
