Update March 25: The Island Packet published a scathing editorial attacking Beaufort County Treasurer Joy Logan in its March 25 edition of the newspaper.

Logan, an elected official, has come under much scrutiny recently for her role in March 21's overtime pay scandal which saw in one instance three employees claim over $154,000 extra in county money. 

This oversight, combined with the various others committed during her 20 year period in office, have proved too much for the Bluffton based newspaper, writing: "If we needed another reason to look forward to a change of leadership in that office, Logan just provided one."

First Reported: Monday, March 21's edition of The Island Packet features and article by Kyle Peterson about employees of the Beaufort County Treasurer's Office claiming huge amounts of overtime pay.

According to the Peterson, one employee claimed through overtime over $20,000 extra--more than half their nearly $40,000 per year salary which, as a result, resulted in that employee pocketing more money that year than Treasurer Joy Logan herself.
