FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- A second employee has left the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources, and the agency's budget manager has been placed on administrative leave.
The departure of Darin Moore, the division director for administrative services, follows that of Fish and Wildlife Commissioner Jonathan Gassett, whose resignation is effective Friday. Spokesman Gil Lawson of the Tourism, Arts and Heritage Cabinet told The State Journal that agency merit employee Scott King was placed on administrative leave but could not elaborate on the circumstances.
Spokesman Dick Brown of the Labor, Public Protection, and Energy and Environment cabinets said the agencies' inspector general is investigating practices at Fish and Wildlife. Brown said he was unsure whether Moore's resignation and King's leave were related to the probe.
Moore said in his resignation letter he was grateful to have served in his job.
