Barbara Dunn, the Circuit Clerk of Hinds County, gets a big wet kiss from the Clarion Ledger, not anchored to any news whatsoever. Well into it, the story does note that among the folks less-than-content with her performance are the justices on the Mississippi Supreme Court:
But Dunn hasn’t escaped some criticism for the way she runs her office. Since 2008, she has been sanctioned three times by the state Supreme Court for failures in her office.
Dunn hasn’t tried to hide from the sanctions. She acknowledged that some of her employees made mistakes and she is responsible since it was on her watch.
That’s certainly a kind way to describe the interaction between Dunn and the Court.
I found very peculiar the story’s constant focus on the race of every person who pops up in it.
