COLUMBIA CO. (WRDW) -- The Columbia County Commission authorized a full audit of Tax Commissioner Kay Allen's office on Tuesday, Commission Chairman Ron Cross confirms.

The vote to do the audit was unanimous. Charles Allen, Kay Allen's husband, recused himself from the vote.

The audit will be done by one of the accounting firms the county already uses, but which has yet to be decided.

Cross said he has not received an update on the investigation from Columbia County Sheriff's Office or FBI.
