Lincoln County Commissioners pick replacement for Ramey
The Lincoln County Commission has picked a potential replacement for Thomas Ramey Jr., who resigned in July after being charged with lying to FBI agents during an investigation into voter fraud. Commissioners picked Michael Browning to fill Ramey's seat. If Browning accepts, he'll temporarily fill the post and voters will pick a permanent replacement on the November ballot. Ramey is expected to plead guilty to the charges at a hearing next Wednesday.
