Greene County Clerk David Thompson is back at work today less than 24 hours after county commissioners moved forward with efforts to remove him from office. If the sitting county clerk has any plans to step down or resign in light of an ouster lawsuit filed yesterday he is not saying.

"I have no comment," Thompson said when reached by phone Wednesday morning.

Thompson continues to face accusations of abusing his power to gain sexual favors from employees. Yesterday, an ouster suit was filed against him. Since he is an elected official, Thompson cannot be fired. However, he can be removed from office if a judge determines misconduct occurred.

At a Greene County Commission meeting Tuesday the new attorney investigating the case on the county's behalf told commissioners Thompson, in affidavits, has admitted to relationships with employees in his office and admitted "the relationships and sexual acts have occurred in the office on taxpayer time, on numerous instances."
