FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) — Indiana State Police say they’ve been asked to investigate allegations of political misconduct in the Fort Wayne city clerk’s office.

City Clerk Sandy Kennedy resigned last month amid accusations she threatened employees if they didn’t support the election campaign of Deputy City Clerk Angie Davis for city clerk. Sgt. Ron Galaviz said Monday that the Allen County prosecutor’s office had asked Indiana State Police to look into the allegations.

Galaviz says that because the allegations deal with public officials, state police have to follow certain policies before it takes on an investigation.

An attorney for Kennedy said she resigned because of health reasons. Davis also resigned, and her name is still on the ballot for Tuesday’s election. She says she would serve if elected.
