Attorney Robin Kempf, who resigned as inspector general in November, says health authority officials pressured her change an audit report, restricted access to legal advice and threatened to fire her for meeting with legislators.
Kempf's testimony before a Senate committee last week came as Senate Republicans work to pass a bill moving the inspector general's job to another area of state government.
The inspector general oversees Medicaid, MediKan and Children's Health Insurance programs.
KHPA board chairman Joe Tilghman said the authority complied with the ``letter and spirit of the law'' and acted ``in the public's best interests.''
