No Basis for Lenington Recall

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

The County Attorney's Office determined the racist emails Lenington sent from his government email are not basis for a recall under state guidelines.

Lenington offered to resign under the condition that he be paid his salary through December 2014, but County Commissioners denied that request. Following the denied request, Yellowstone County District Attorney Scott Twito determined the derogatory emails aren't sufficient ground for a recall.
