Cherokee County Elections Supervisor Janet Munda was fired Wednesday amid a criminal investigation initiated in June into allegations she used a county credit card for unauthorized purchases.
The Cherokee County Board of Elections voted unanimously at a specially called meeting to terminate Munda from her appointed position as elections supervisor and voter registrar, effective immediately.
A letter of termination outlined seven county policies Munda was accused of violating, including misconduct, carelessness or negligence with county money, inappropriate handling of county funds and failure to follow procedure for use of county funds.
Munda could not be reached for comment Wednesday.
Cherokee County Sheriff Roger Garrison said no charges had been filed as of Wednesday, and the criminal investigation was expected to continue for at least a few more weeks, as county credit card records going back more than a year are obtained by authorities.
