During her mayoral administration most of the actual work of running
this small city was turned over to an administrator. She had been
pushed to hire this administrator by party power-brokers after she had
gotten herself into some trouble over precipitous firings which had
given rise to a recall campaign.
The precipitous firings and recall campaign have been reported. The job description "amdinistrator" would appear in official records. If the position was established just when the recall campaign fizzled, the accusation becomes credible enough to justify on the scene reporting. I don't volunteer.
