The Walsh County Auditor says petitions to recall the county's sheriff won't be verified until after Christmas.

The Walsh County Auditor says petitions to recall the county's sheriff won't be verified until after Christmas.

County Auditor Sharon Kinsala says they will be verified within 30 days. The Walsh County Petition to recall Lauren Wild as Sheriff was turned in on December 9th with 1334 signatures, 94 more then they needed.

The petition effort started when current sheriff Lauren Wild fired former Deputy Ron Nord the day after the November election. Nord ran against Wild for Sheriff.

Wild said he fired Nord because the deputy spread lies about him during the campaign, and could no longer be trusted. Nord denies the allegations.
