DISREGARD THE FOLLOWING! Lillian McBride now DENIES that she has quit!
Most of y’all will likely regard this as a positive development:
COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) – Richland County’s embattled elections director has resigned six weeks after an election plagued by long lines and an insufficient number of voting machines.
Representative Todd Rutherford (D-Richland) says Lillian McBride’s resignation is effective January 8th. The decision comes two days after the commission’s chairwoman, Liz Crum, stepped down.
McBride’s attorney, John Nichols, submitted the resignation to the delegation Wednesday afternoon.
Rutherford says he does not believe there is any compensation tied to her resignation. He also believes the election board intends to try and find a position for her in the voter registration office where she worked with a good track record for 23 years.
This follows a story in The State this morning that showed most members of the county legislative delegation being in favor of her stepping down.
