Ravalli Co. Employee Plans To Sue County For Corruption

Posted: Updated:
HAMILTON -

An employee at the Ravalli County Treasurer's Office is accusing county officials of corruption. County Treasurer  Valerie Stamey's attorney, Robert Myers, is now representing Michelle Pope in a lawsuit against the county.

On Tuesday, Myers sent the county a letter demanding it provide Pope a "safe work environment, free from any illegal activity." The letter accuses commissioners of trying to frame Pope for stealing money from the county. Myers says Pope got a warning from a friend that one commissioner and the tax clerk wanted her fired, because she found missing deposit receipt documents the clerk never filed.

"I truly wanted to protect her from any harm coming down on her, if you have threats that someone is going to frame you then we need to make sure that doesn't happen," said Myers.

Myers says she plans to have the suit filed by early next week.
