Sacramento County has ordered three investigations this year into the office of Assessor Kathleen Kelleher, who resigned Friday.
The county hired an outside law firm in January to investigate whether top officials in the Assessor’s Office benefited from lower tax bills, among dozens of other claims.
The county also launched two internal probes on May 8 to examine issues that remain undisclosed.
Kelleher, who was first elected to the $168,000 post in 2010, denied all allegations of wrongdoing.
She faces allegations that a friend on staff low-balled the value of her new pool and that managers in her office received generous appraisals.
Kelleher left in the middle of her second term, which runs through January 2019, citing “health” issues.
Sacramento County has investigated the department 13 times in the past decade.
Just another day in Sacramento where being white is what it’s all about.
