In a story you heard first on 970 WMAY, an assistant Springfield city attorney who played a role in last year’s file shredding scandal has left her job. But city officials aren’t saying whether Geannette Wittendorf’s departure was voluntary or not.
Wittendorf originally signed off on the destruction of police department internal affairs files, even though there was a pending FOIA request for the documents. And she was involved in several e-mail exchanges which gave the final green light for the shredding, over the objections of at least one senior police department official.
Wittendorf’s last day was Friday.
