2 County Workers File Suit Against Indicted Judge-Executive

HINDMAN, Ky. (AP) - An eastern Kentucky judge-executive, who was
indicted on vote fraud charges, is facing new allegations in a
lawsuit.

Knott County Judge-Executive Randy Thompson is accused of firing
two former county workers because they did not support him in the
2006 election. Thompson became the first Republican to head the
Knott County government.

The workers filed suit claiming that after Thompson's victory,
they had to endure discriminatory work terms and conditions,
harassment, humiliation and, ultimately, termination.

Thompson did not immediately return a phone call to his office
on Friday.
