It’s not going to get better.
Kay Allen’s tenure as Columbia County’s tax commissioner appears to be grinding to a slow, inexorable end.
A criminal investigation file is sitting on District Attorney Ashley Wright’s desk. Federal authorities, including the Internal Revenue Service, have another investigation bearing down. And now the Board of Commissioners appears at the ready to file a civil lawsuit.
It is just a matter of time before Allen will be a former elected official. How and when that happens is still within her control, at least for now.
