PORTLAND, Ore. — The U.S. Attorney for Oregon has mysteriously taken a leave for unexplained health reasons amid news reports that she is under investigation for allegedly stalking a subordinate in her office.
The U.S. Justice Department won’t confirm that it is investigating Amanda Marshall. But the department on Monday denied that it told Marshall’s lawyer that the subordinate is the focus of an investigation.
Marshall’s lawyer, Charese Rohny, made the statement in an interview with The Oregonian newspaper.
John Lavinsky is counsel to the Office of the Inspector General. He said Monday that Rohny’s words don’t accurately represent the position of the OIG. He declined further comment.
Rohny did not return phone or email messages Monday.
