St. Clair County Clerk Resigns Amid Accusations

BELLEVILLE, Ill. (AP) - The St. Clair County clerk has resigned after an employee accused him of discrimination, sexual harassment and wrongful termination.

The Belleville News-Democrat reports (http://bit.ly/190ENNm) that a tearful Bob Delaney resigned on Wednesday. Delaney denied he mistreated any employees, calling the action "bogus." He said he doesn't "want to put my family through this."

Delaney said he is leaving the clerk's office in southern Illinois after 34 years of public service. He turned in his resignation to St. Clair County board chairman Mark Kern.

Delaney's attorney declined comment.
