Sarah Matheny to remain on Yakima County Clerk ballot

YAKIMA, Wash. -- Despite any employment change, Sarah Matheny will still be on the ballot for Yakima County Clerk in November. The Yakima County Auditor's Office says she earned her spot in the general election fair and square.

The city of Yakima says it intends to fire Matheny. Yakima believes she improperly used her role as a city clerk to look up the driving records of her opponents for county clerk.

A termination will not disqualify her from being elected.
