Former elections chief deputy sues Grimes County for wrongful termination
The former elections chief deputy has filed a lawsuit against Grimes County claiming that she was wrongfully terminated after reporting illegal actions allegedly done by the the Elections Administrator.
The lawsuit was filed in June and stated that the Elections Administrator accepted a late absentee ballot, mailed a ballot to a voter before a voter application was received, and delivered a voter application to a resident in an assistant living center after the deadline.
The former employee claimed that these election violations began in October 2010 and that November, the woman reported the violations to a judge in Grimes County. By December, no actions were done against the administrator and the former employee claimed that she was retaliated against.
The in April, the administrator allegedly asked the woman to change the facts on a voting application and when it was asked if this was a violation, the woman was terminated.
