Ex-Director Testifies In Ethics Commission Trial

Ethics Commission Trial
ATLANTA (AP) - The former director of the Georgia state ethics commission testified that she would take her job back even "after everything."
   
Stacey Kalberman testified Thursday in the trial over the lawsuit she filed alleging retaliation from commissioners after she presented them with subpoenas as part of the agency's investigation into Gov. Nathan Deal's 2010 campaign reports and financial disclosures.
   
About a month after she gave the commissioners draft subpoenas in May 2011, Kalberman was told her salary was being reduced and her deputy's position would be eliminated.
   
Kalberman testified she loved her job, had a good relationship with the commissioners and felt like she was doing good.
   
Commissioners have denied wrongdoing. The governor was later cleared of major violations in the ethics probe and agreed to pay $3,350 in administrative fees.
