Collin County Lays Off the Innocent, Retains the Indicted Clerks

Want to be safe from being let go from a government job in Collin County? It’s easy: simply get indicted for official corruption.

Responding to budget cuts ordered by the County Commissioners Court, in the wake of the indictments of the incoming District Clerk-elect and five of her deputies, embattled District Clerk Hannah Kunkle handed out pink slips to three mid-level deputy clerks.

None of the three has been charged with any wrongdoing. They were simply expendable, thereby making it easier for Kunkle to protect the jobs of those six charged with felony theft by a public servant.
