The Jennings County Election Board, Johnnie Reynolds, from left, Charles “Chuck” Waggoner and Mary Kilgore (back to camera) discuss the complaint filed by Amy Thompson in back at left, against Rachael Shaw, directly behind Waggoner during Tuesday’s meeting.

The campaign by two candidates for Jennings County Clerk of the Courts continues unabated, at least for now.

The Jennings County Election Board's chair, Charles "Chuck" Wag­goner, said the three-person board can take no action on a complaint made by the Republican Party candidate because the complaint was filed too late.

"I feel good about this," said Racheal Shaw, the Democratic Party candidate, after the meeting. "I feel vindicated."

Meanwhile, Amy Thompson, the GOP candidate, says she will continue challenging Shaw's candidacy through the U.S. Office of the Special Counsel.

"I definitely plan to pursue this," Thompson told the Plain Dealer.

In the complaint filed through the county clerk's office on Oct. 9, Thompson alleges that Shaw violated the Hatch Act because she was an employee of the U.S. Postal Service, a federal government agency. Shaw says she resigned last week.

At its first meeting since receiving the complaint, the Election Board took up the matter Tuesday. Waggoner, a Republican member of the Election Board and also an attorney, said the board has no jurisdiction on the issue because the complaint filing was not "timely."
