ST. JOSEPH, WI (WTAQ) - Town officials in St. Joseph are asking the court to remove recently-elected clerk-treasurer Mary Stanley.

She is accused of writing herself an unauthorized paycheck just days after she took office.

Stanley didn't show for a hearing last Friday and the judge has extended a restraining order against her, stopping her pay, ordering her to return anything taken, and banning her from the town's property.

A hearing on her removal is set for next month.

A week after her April 12th start date, Stanley allegedly wrote herself a check for $2,300.

The town is accusing her of writing herself two unauthorized checks, forging the town chairman's signature on those checks and making personal purchases with town money.

St. Joseph officials say the total for the alleged misappropriations is a little over $7,000.
