One question I have is why is this man still being employed by the county at his age ? it's likely that he suffering from the effect of old age.These remarks were completely unacceptable from a public figure.He should not be allowed to continue in office and should be given well deserved boot up the backside.He doesn't deserve any compensation either.

Alfred, I do not think his age has anything to do with his obvious bigotry.

If Max Lenington had used Alzheimer as an excuse for his bigotry, he may have gotten away with it and cashed in on his 'retirement plan'. Now it's just blackmail (I'll save you a lot of trouble and fuss if you pay me) and he should get the boott. No money, no party, just scorn.

Let him have a 2 week severance pay and be done with him.
Let Max Lenington "retire" with how the people are "forced" out of a job.
Bye-bye Max Lenington. You cannot use a public government email address and equipment to email out your obvious hatred, racism and bigotry.

Max Lenington: The Supreme Court has already ruled on ACA. Pay attention.

ty, Carrie.

He's got some balls on him...how about an informal castration?? No anesthetic and a dull knife...

Just stick him to a wall way out in the country with a pitch fork

Noted. Did I read correctly that he is also School Superintendent???? Not very knowledgeable to using public government email address and equipment for hate mail. Take one of the cowboy's boots and give him a swift kick out of office! One of my relatives in Montana would be happy to just do that!!
Thanks Carrie.

He should be thrown out without a pension.

Here's my take: I think he should PAY $90,000 for the privilege of being allowed to retire instead of kicked out on his a$$ and tarred and feathered.

I like Joanne and GGmaSheila's ideas. Heretofore, I have saved the castrato solution for rapists, but this guy could just change my mind about that.
I am constantly blown away by the imbecility we hear from public figures...tiny little ones like him, and HUGE idiots like Issa, Cruz, Bubba, Boehner, McConnell, damn! I could go on and on, but my 'puter is starting to smoke and melt.

The article states that he used his government email to send the message. I wonder if that's grounds for dismissal. Where I worked, I was told that any email messages I created belonged to my employer.

The old fart might be senile or something, but there's probably a better chance that he's an ignorant bigot. It might be worth it to pay him his extortion money just to get him and his big mouth out of the spotlight...
