Livewire got screwed
« on: January 12, 2019, 02:34:37 PM »

Was in today's MN.  He thought he was sworn in but in reality he wasn't.  The clerk didn't have the authority to do it and he was never notified as such.  Think I'd be talking to an attorney, the whole thing smells fishy to me.

This could only happen in Moron County - London Township.

The treasurer swore him in and she did not have the authority. The clerk was notified and she was sworn in properly but failed to inform Live that he needed re-sworn in. Mondays meeting will determine if London will be in the paper again for another screwup.

Probably someone has started a recall petition of Gary over it.

Wow.  Just wow.

And the clerk that should have been contacting them to administer the oath gets to preside over the meeting?

Unreal.

Sounds like a coup to me.

That Treasurer needs to resign.

Washington politics at the local level. It’s only right they appoint the guy that won the election. The clerk needs to be fired

For administering an oath they shouldn't have administered, and then for failing to inform the person that they were not in fact sworn in?

Sounds like malfeasance in office to me.  Gary (live) won the recall election by a substantial margin (was a recall vote in London Twp).  I smells to me like the official planned it (premeditated) so they could appoint Gary's opponent at the board meeting that is coming up.

I know if it was me, I'd be seeking legal remedy if, in fact, that is what goes down.  At the very least the official who did the swearing in (that was supposed to do it) but never notified Gary should be adjudicated for malfeasance in office.

Ignorance is one thing but it smells to me like premeditated malfeasance.

What a deal.

I agree with your analysis, and that makes the Treasurer complicit to the coup.  Now lets see if the rest of the board is in line with the Treasurer.

Sounds like the local opposition is scheming to steal an election.

If so - I think recalling the whole board would be the next step.  You can't let things like this become the normal course of business - or we no longer live in a Republic.

I don't know anything about that district or the people there but the whole thing smells pretty bad.  Before the board can appoint their chosen one, the elected official should sue everybody before it gets really messy.

I'm not sure suing would work.

Gary apparently didn't know the rules of how to get sworn in.

The Treasurer apparently didn't know the rules of who could swear someone in.

The Clerk was apparently no where to be found.

What are you going to sue for?  Your own ignorance?  Someone elses?

The clerk was sworn in properly and was told to let Gary know he needed to be re-sworn in also. She did not let him know on purpose because they are political foes. She has an obligation as the clerk to see that everyone is sworn in. She purposefully neglected that duty.

Why I said, malfeasance in office.  It needs to be adjudicated in a court of law and she needs to be removed from her position as well.

Dereliction of duty in office (Malfeasance) applies to all officials elected or appointed that represent the public.  Mav, you and I both know that.

Gonna get real interesting no matter how it plays.  Elected official should never 'play favorites'.  Bad business.

Could he not have went into Monroe and had a local judge or the County Clerk administer the oath?
