WASTE WATCH: Authorities Raid Home of Fairfield Co. Official Amid Investigation
LANCASTER (Brooks Jarosz/Ken Hines) -- Authorities have searched the home of a Fairfield County official as a corruption investigation into the woman's activities widens.
Investigators raided Clerk of Courts Deborah Smalley's home on Thursday. Authorities have not commented on the reason for the search, or any items that may have been seized from the house.
The search warrant related to the raid is under seal in Fairfield County Municipal Court. However, a spokesperson with the Auditor of States office confirmed the search was part of an ongoing investigation.
Smalley, a Republican, is accused of using tax dollars to support her reelection campaign. A special prosecutor has been looking into those claims.
The Fairfield County Republican Party called for her resignation earlier this month.
Smalleys attorney denied that his client has done anything wrong.
