An investigation into the shredding of documents last year by the former director of the Kentucky Legislative Research Commission has concluded that no wrongdoing took place. Kentucky State Police spokesman Paul Blanton tells the Herald-Leader that no criminal act was found and that the case, in his words, “is closed”.
The investigation surrounded Bobby Sherman who returned to his office at the capitol last fall and destroyed documents just two days after he resigned.
Lawyers for two legislative staffers who brought sexual harassment allegations against former State Rep. John Arnold asked for the investigation. They feared papers related to the case may have been among those destroyed.
