If you will remember a little while ago NWI Gazette reported this story. At the time we couldna€?t give names. Today the breaking story is:
FBI agents arrived at the office of Lake Station Mayor Keith Soderquist on Friday. Federal investigators had subpoenaed documents from Lake Stationa€?s Board of Works, which Soderquist is president. Sources say the computers were removed from the building and At least Three FBI agents were seen going into City Hall and talking to the Mayor.
In February, the State Board of Accounts audit ordered Soderquista€?s stepdaughter Miranda Brakley , former court employee, To repay the city $13,130, money she wrongly received after she was fired in 2012. Miranda Brakey was a deputy court clerk responsible for collecting bond payments for the Lake Station. In 39 cases she neglicted to deposit The Funds totaling $16,464. A week after she was fired, the Lake Station City Council, moved two deputy positions from City Court Judge Christopher Andersona€?s budget to the Clerk-Treasurera€?s purview and Brakley was rehired. She received $468 for seven days vacation and $12,661 for unused compensatory and sick time even thought she only had 30 minutes of vacation remaining . Two weeks later, Lake County Superior Court Judge Calvin Hawkins issued a temporary restraining order against the Brakleya€?s rehiringa€|. more to follow later

Actually, it does, but it needs to happen more frequently.
