Hancock County Auditor Resigns
Hancock County Auditor Linda Grass, facing charges she accepted a $54,000 bribe from a relative in consideration for a $238,000 public contract she awarded to him, resigned her job after receiving pressure by a number of Hancock County Republican officials. Grass' replacement will be chosen by Hancock County Republican precinct committeepersons. Have you ever noticed how elected Republican officials almost always resign their office when they are confronted with allegations of wrongdoing, while Democrats almost always defiantly hold on to their job until they are forced from office as a result of a criminal conviction or impeachment?
