Lillian McBride, who made more than $89,000 per year as director of the Richland County Voter Registration and Elections Office, resigned Jan. 12 after more than two months of controversy. Her office was blamed for not having enough functioning voting machines available to precincts on Election Day, which led to long lines. The election was also marred by multiple lawsuits, a bungled ballot-counting process and missing votes that were never even counted. An investigation and report conducted by attorney Steve Hamm indicated McBride had failed to oversee employees and catch key errors in the months before the election.

...
It was the local delegation that passed a 2011 law creating the county elections office and hired McBride. Richland County Council is required to fund the office.
The county elections board voted to allow McBride to stay on at the agency in a new capacity as deputy director, where she could draw a salary of $74,000 per year.
...
Her attorney rushed out of the meeting to meet with McBride, who then sent an email to media saying such talk was premature and erroneous.
...
If the elections office creates a new position for McBride, they would have to justify it to Richland County Council, says County Councilman Greg Pearce. But he said his understanding is that the office has a vacant position and sufficient funds to merely change the title of an existing position. He adds that so far, Council hasn't seen any presentation from a member of the elections board or its staff.
