ESPN reporter John Clayton’s wife Patricia lost her job as a temporary election worker in King County on Monday, after there was a complaint about giving her special assistance because of her wheelchair. Mrs. Clayton, who suffers from multiple sclerosis, had been employed checking ballot signatures.
“They said there was a complaint – complaints from my co-workers that I was a burden to my co-workers asking them to assist me,” said Clayton.
Clayton needed coworkers “to push her to the break room and to bring her bins of envelopes.”
King County elections had no comment. Absolutely disgraceful.
