This is a lot of expense over $347. A Lewis County election commissioner is in an extended legal fight over her job because she allegedly authorized payments to her daughter for working as an election inspector in a couple elections when she apparently didn't work.
For the commissioner, that's a lot to give up over such a small payoff, so one suspects there is more to this. For the county, where lots of relatives work, it's an exercise in why people lose interest in trying to fire someone, given all the time and expense required.
Someone must feel its worth the effort in this case.
