Walton Co. Clerk of Courts addresses fraud investigation | #phishing | #scams | #hacking | #aihp

WALTON COUNTY, Fla. (WMBB) — The investigation into the Walton County Board of County Commissioners’ spending has come to a close, but the fallout continues.

Earlier this summer the Clerk of Courts, Alex Alford, released a report alleging the entire commission misspent taxpayer money.

The investigation started with an anonymous tip to Alford’s office about county commissioners misusing their county cards and county vehicles.

“We knew this was going to blow up because it’s an ugly read and it’s really an unfair read because it’s not an exhaustive investigation and that’s what we conveyed to the Sheriff’s office as well that we don’t know, or didn’t then, believe that it constituted fraud,” Alford said.

Alford said they handed their report off to the Sheriff’s office who then turned it over to the State Attorney’s Office.

“Really, the whole mess that we have seen so far was simply because the Sheriff’s Department and State Attorney’s office had a miscommunication about when their investigation was over and when I could release my public records request,” Alford said.
