Reams resigns: With a pile of county cash
To get him to resign, the county commission paid Reams his salary for the rest of the year. That amounts to a $42,000 payout.
Reams claimed, preposterously, that he was not resigning for a payout, but retiring. “The commissioners have nothing to do with it,” he said.
The Attorney General’s investigation of Reams revealed many serious allegations, but resulted in no criminal charges. The AG then tried to oust Reams without going through the proper legal process. The removal procedure dragged out, leaving the Rockingham County Attorney’s office in turmoil for months, and leaving Reams in office but with little credibility.
