Description

The Pioneer Press articles reveal malfeasance in the management of the Ramsey County Tax department. After the Pioneer Press analyzed "about 1,000 pages of (tax director Lou McKenna's) time sheets, payroll stubs, court documents, property records, telephone bills, travel documents and expense vouchers," irregularities became apparent, and McKenna resigned. Subsequently his assistant was fired, two state audits were inititated, a criminal investigation was begun, and hiring practices and the system by which the county grants tax breaks were revised.
