Metro asks consultant to investigate Wilson allegations

We’ll see if there’s anything to the hype.

A consultant with expertise in identifying business fraud will investigate allegations that Metro’s chief executive used public funds in an inappropriate relationship with his assistant, the agency announced today.

David Wolff, the Metropolitan Transit Authority’s board chairman, asked Jeff Harfenist, a managing director of UHY Advisors, to conduct the inquiry, Metro said in a statement.

The investigation stems from comments made during a March 10 civil court hearing by Michael West, who represents attorney and former City Controller Lloyd Kelley in an open-records lawsuit against Metro.

Well, at least Kelley will get something for his trouble, even if he couldn’t find a witness. I have no idea what this may turn up – again, despite the lack of evidence, it is entirely possible that Kelley is right, and it is entirely possible that he is full of it – but Harfenist seems to have solid credentials, so we’ll see. Hair Balls has more.
