Goochland treasurer resigns

GOOCHLAND COUNTY, VA (WWBT) - Goochland's treasurer has resigned. 53-year-old Brenda Grubbs is charged with embezzlement, accused of mis-using thousands of dollars in public funds.

Initially she refused to step down even after the attorney general's office called for her resignation.

Late today, Grubbs agreed to go. Her resignation came moments after the governor authorized the attorney general's office to begin ouster proceedings.
