As the Election Turns-the ever-expanding lawsuitThe Knox County Election Commission has decided to join the suit, or more precisely to welcome the suit, of the five term-limited County Commissioners-at least in two critical respects:
1. The Election Commission asks the Chancery Court: If the charter is valid, do its term limits apply to all county commissioners, as well as the county trustee, sheriff, register of deeds, school board members and the various court clerks?
2. If term limits apply to those offices, does the Commission have the authority to remove the names of those incumbent officials from the August ballot?
This could very quickly turn into the never-ending lawsuit, and the situation is rapidly developing.
