Exonerated Grand Canyon NP chief had been accused of variety of misdeeds: Inspector General report

Grand Canyon National Park Superintendent Christine Lehnertz, who spent three months in administrative limbo after a series of accusations were made against her, was completely exonerated by an investigation by the Interior Department's Office of Inspector General. There was no immediate word on whether the individual or individuals who made the allegations faced any discipline.

Lehnertz, brought to Grand Canyon by former National Park Service Director Jon Jarvis in July 2016 to work on ridding the park of an atmosphere of sexual harassment, was abruptly removed and placed on an unspecified temporary assignment last October after undisclosed allegations were made against her. Last month she was officially cleared and returned to the park.
