Description

When reporter Steve Patterson started investigating the Gary City Clerk's office, he found an office fraught with deception and illegal activity. From the city clerk's attempts to make her employees sell candy for her campaign fund (with threats of being let go for noncompliance) to a ghost-payrolling operation, this in-depth investigation covered it all. The result was a pending trial against Katie Hall, the clerk, and her daughter, who was also involved in the scheme.
