Commissioners are looking at Johnson's time cards, Stevens said.
"They (commissioners) seem to believe there are some irregularities in her time cards," he added.
However, Stevens said he has also reviewed Johnson's time sheets and that he has found nothing that leads him to believe there was any inappropriate behavior by his client.
Stevens also questions the method used to suspend Johnson. Commissioners requested that the prosecuting attorney send a letter to State Police asking for an investigation into Johnson's time cards, he said.
Commissioners then used the investigation, which they asked for, as a reason to place Johnson on administrative leave, Stevens said.
"They (commissioners) set up their own grounds to suspend her," he said. "That's pretty dubious."
Stevens believes Johnson will be cleared of any wrongdoing. He added that he and his client are ready to take legal action if she were to be fired.
"If they terminate her, we're absolutely prepared to file a lawsuit for wrongful termination," Stevens said.
Lincoln County is no stranger to claims of political intrigue.
Last November, U.S. District Judge Thomas Johnston sentenced Ramey to 21 months in a federal penitentiary.
Ramey pleaded guilty to a single charge of making a false statement to a federal agent.
Ramey admitted to lying to cover up his role in altering about 20 absentee ballots.
Former Lincoln County Sheriff Jerry Bowman and former County Clerk Donald Whitten were also involved in the scandal.
Bowman was sentenced to one year and one day in federal prison, along with three years probation for falsifying more than 100 absentee ballot applications for voters who had no legal basis to vote absentee.
Whitten was sentenced to one year and six months in prison and three years probation after pleading guilty to making a false statement.
