INDIANAPOLIS -- Democrats met behind closed doors Thursday to discuss possible action against Indianapolis City-County Council President Stephen Clay, who is a member of their own party.
On Wednesday, Clay abruptly fired two high-level council staff members - the clerk of the council and staff lawyer- who were both escorted out by sheriff's deputies. Clay reportedly tried to get rid of a third staff member as well.
Clay said the firings are part of a transition and any new administration has the ability to make staff changes.
Two days prior, city-county councilors took a vote of no confidence in Clay, which will lead to a vote at the next council meeting on Feb. 19 that could remove him from the presidency.
