Voters recall Wayne County, NE commissioner

Posted:

Voters in Wayne County, Nebraska, have recalled a county commissioner who pleaded "no contest" to stealing county-owned scrap metal.

Voters overwhelmingly approved the recall of commissioner Kelvin Wurdeman.

Last September, Wurdeman was fined $1,000 after pleading "no contest" to charges he stole a truckload of scrap metal.

This was the second recall effort against Wurdeman. The first accused him of removing dirt from a field without the landowner's permission and using it for a nearby road problem. That's an allegation Wurdeman denied.
