Fired election worker with MS says co-workers griped about helping her11/4/2012
Something called the Help America Vote Act of 2002 helped ensure accessibility for the disabled at the polls, but it didn't help Patricia Clayton keep her temp job at King County Elections in Renton, Wash. The wife of ESPN NFL reporter John Clayton has multiple sclerosis and uses a wheelchair to get around; she says she was told by her supervisors that she was let go from her $17-an-hour position because of complaints "that I was a burden to my co-workers asking them to assist me." Clayton, who specializes in signature verification, relied on colleagues to push her to the break room and bring her bins of envelopes. A King County elections spokesperson refused to discuss the case. [Source]
