Deschutes County Commissioners have voiced concerns about D.A. Patrick Flaherty with the State Bar. Specifically they are worried about Flaherty’s handling of a grand jury investigation and whether he could practice law if he were found guilty of official misconduct. County Commissioner Alan Unger says they were just looking out for residents and county staff. “The County has submitted info to the state bar on concerns we have. It’s up to them to investigate and come to their conclusions.” Patrick Flaherty, in a press release said he is disappointed that none of the County Commissioners spoke to him about their concerns, before contacting the State Bar. Flaherty convened a grand jury investigation into the release of job applications for the D.A.'s office to the Bend Bulletin.
