James McDaniel, the new deputy director of the Department of Environmental Quality, knew about payments that forced his predecessor to resign--this according to a state auditor.
The agency paid former spokesman Michael McKenna more than 78-hundred dollars in overtime after McKenna resigned in mid-January.
But, McKenna didn't have the paperwork to prove the extra hours.
Criticism from the incident forced T. March Bell to resign as deputy director.
In a report dated June 24th, internal auditor Merritt Cogswell says McDaniel received warnings that the overtime payment could be improper but did nothing to stop it.
McDaniel says it was Bell's job to decide whether to allow the payment, not his.
