A judge from another community will likely have to rule on whether Pulaski County Clerk Carolyn Staley should be thrown out of office. Circuit Judge John Langston has recused from conducting a hearing on a grand jury recommendation that Staley be removed due to her failure to straighten out massive problems with voting lists. Langston says the judges in Pulaski County have a close working relationship with Staley and thus should not rule in her case, to avoid the appearance of a lack of impartiality. Prosecuting Attorney Larry Jegley filed a motion after the recusal Wednesday asking that the county`s 16 other judges do the same. It is up to each judge, but several said yesterday they plan to recuse. Proceedings to remove Staley from office began November 13th when a special grand jury concluded that Staley had failed in her duty to keep an accurate voter-registration list.
