RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — A former Indiana official had been set to take a job leading Virginia’s Department of Motor Vehicles. But a spokeswoman for Gov. Glenn Youngkin confirms that fell apart Tuesday, after a newspaper’s reporting about allegations that the official had behaved inappropriately at work.
The governor’s spokeswoman, Macaulay Porter, says Virginia Transportation Secretary Shep Miller spoke with former Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles Commissioner Peter Lacy on Tuesday morning.
According to Porter, Lacy rescinded his acceptance and Miller rescinded the offer.
Lacy could not immediately be reached for comment by The Associated Press.
Virginia’s former DMV commissioner retired before Youngkin took office in January.
