Newly elected Seminole County Clerk Grant Maloy’s assistant finance director Stan Mcculars recently said on Facebook about the first African-American state attorney to be elected in Florida “She should be tarred and feathered if not hung from a tree and she should get the death penalty.”
We have confirmed that Mcculars has been employed with the clerk since at least 2016 and that he is a current employee. Grant Maloy or Stan Mculllars have not responded to my request for comment.
Mcculars in another post this morning walked back his comments saying “yep. It was wrong of me to post that. I let my anger at her efforts to thrawt justice get the best of me. No excuse.”
Clerk Grant Maloy recently released a statement ‘These comments neither reflect my beliefs or those of the Clerk of the Court and Comptroller office, nor were they made on behalf of or by our organization.
This employee has been placed on administrative leave while an investigation occurs to determine the proper disciplinary action.
The Clerk of the Court and Comptroller, our management team and employees do not tolerate or condone discriminatory behavior toward our customers, coworkers or the public, and we stand by our commitment to diversity and inclusion.
