Oregon: State Police Investigate Ex-Library Employee
From the Statesman-Journal (Salem, OR):
Police are investigating possible wrongdoing by a former state library official who abruptly resigned in December after he was chosen to become the next Oregon state librarian.
Amid official silence about what triggered the criminal investigation, emails obtained by the Statesman Journal through Oregon’s public records law reveal that Robert Hulshof-Schmidt was placed on administrative leave in November after questions surfaced about his academic credentials.
Oregon State Police now are in the midst of an ongoing investigation of Hulshof-Schmidt, according to Lt. Gregg Hastings. He declined to specify any allegations of wrongdoing by the former library employee.
