Jeeferson County fires staffer who ran for office

AL.com reports: Jefferson County today fired Richard Finley, the County Commission staffer, who had been placed on leave after questions were raised about violation of a state law.

Commissioner George Bowman said today that Finley had "forfeited" his job.

"His leave of absence has now been turned into a forfeiture of employment," Bowman said.

AL.com reported Sunday that Finley, an aide to Bowman, qualified as a Libertarian for the District 1 seat. But, after qualifying, Finley apparently failed to follow the state law that requires he take unpaid leave from his government-based job. -- Jefferson County Commission aide fired after apparent violation of state law | AL.com
