(AP) — Newly released written complaints say a Southern California city manager was asked to resign for showing a nude photo of a colleague to other co-workers at city hall.
The Desert Sun reports that two Palm Desert employees complained that City Manager John Wohlmuth circulated the photo around City Hall. One complaint said Wohlmuth and the colleague had watched NCAA Basketball Tournament games at Wohlmuth’s home in March.
According to the complaint, Wohlmuth said the colleague went skinny-dipping in his pool because he didn’t have a bathing suit, and that he took a photo of him from behind. The complaints said Wohlmuth showed off the photo at work the next day. Wohlmuth resigned in April.
The documents released Friday were in response to a public records request filed by The Desert Sun.
